We r still going to have to find some way of fitting a bracket to the Tenere oem rack...at least on the right side. I kinda enjoy coming up with stuff like that so I'll have to look into It.

I did a 17 day self supported camping trip out west using the OEM hard bags and a Twisted throttle D38 dry bag on the tail. It worked perfectly and was plenty of room. Slightly More than I needed really. I'm a lightweight backpacker though. I'm thinking a 20L soft bag setup for the back would probably be enough, but 30 would be a sure bet. Rolled up they probably take up less room anyway than an equivalent hard bag.

The OEM cases are about 30 Liters. The tail bag I have is 38. More than enough for solo camping trips. Forgot to mention I also have a Giant Loop Diablo tank bag for everyday crap. Very handy.

I'm a huge fan of these. Come in several sizes and are excellent for access and holding
a lot of stuff.

Look at the Magadan soft panniers. They are large & super strong.

Wonder how they do without a frame support.

I use the SW-Motech frames that is for my TraX panniers, I would not use the Adventure Spec Magadan soft panniers without a frame.
They are water proof, slash proof and got pockets on the sides, I love them!

They look huge! What is their capacity? Probably more bag than I'm looking for...

I think these Ortliebs are the front runners for my needs....

Yea... I like those too... 46 L...just a bit smaller and they are 4 inchs shorter than the larger Ortliebs which might be a good thing with the lack of a large rack.

You think there is any concern with how these Ortliebs would hang over the tenere pipe guard with that rigid back? I wonder if the wolfmans would have more flex and bend and hug around it better. Sure wish the wolfmans were about 24 L per side....I would definately get those.

I just checked and the pipe guard is almost flush with the top of the oem rack so I dont see that rigid back on the Ortlieb as being a problem

So you imagine we could use the Yamaha OEM pannier mounts as attachment points for soft luggage, instead of having to buy the more traditional racks?

I'm also having a hard time tearing my eyes from the Wolfman Rocky mountain bags. I think they are the nicest looking ones. Also the priciest but you know what they say about getting what you pay for.

I used the wolfman expedition saddle bags and an expedition duffel bag for my 1.5 month trip around NZ. More that enough room for all my cooking, food, beer, cloths, tools, spares, sleeping bag and computer. Totally water proof as tested. I strapped my tent on out side of all my bags.

The saddle bags are some what adjustable in volume in that you can roll the top down less if needed. 24l? didn't measure but there is a lot of room.

If I had a fancy down sleeping bag and no laptop, I could have put the tent inside the duffel bag.

bags were tested in a couple of light crashes when off road but never tested them on road.

Did one badly rutted 4x4 track (Worsley Spur in Christchurch) http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtmTHqKyOhE where you are forced to ride in the wheel tracks often. My mate got knocked of a couple of times when his hard luggage cases hit the bank. My soft case where less of a problem.
