    Jesse Luggage started production of panniers for the R100GS/80GS back in the early 90's. The "factory"
    was in Storm Lake, Iowa. A set of panniers cost $997 USD, plus shipping. The factory moved to Arizona in the
    late 90's where "old school" bag production ceased, and other later style's began.
    This past year, the boss went back to Iowa to visit, and was surprised when one of his former welders
    there asked what he wanted to do with the metal stored in his barn. Al said, "Weld them up".
    So we ended up with a bunch of sets of the "old school" panniers.

    The jigs to make the old style square tube mounts, had been purged a long time ago,
    so Al proceeded to design a mount system that was simpler and easier, but just as sturdy and strong.

    The bags themselves, have a combined capacity of 101 liters, which is almost double what the stock bags carried.

    The overall width of the bags mounted is 32 inches.

    Bag opening is 17X6.5 inches.

    So now we're happy to say that we now have bags in stock for the R100GS, GS/PD, and R80GS and ST.
    Being as it's now 2012 almost 2013, and the costs of everything have risen, it can't be expected
    to sell the pannier sets for $997 anymore. So we had to raise the price to $1000 USD plus shipping,
    for the R100 bags, and $1075 USD plus shipping for the R80. (extra rear subframe support for the R80's.)
    The panniers are available in silver,black or charcoal. Powdercoated inside and out for maximum protection.
    They come with all mounts, nuts, bolts, locks, keys etc...
    Call us if you're interested.
    Hours are 8AM to 4PM Mountain Standard Time.
    Closed Friday - Sunday.

    Credit cards work well. Checks, money orders also work, but take longer.

    Here's what the R80 subframe support looks like.

    And with the plate on.

    The support is needed as the R80 didn't have enough subframe to support a set of bags. This does the job.

    Placed my order today, thanks Lisa. Now I have a question. With these mounted can my Wife still ride Pillon comfortably? Seems all pics of Jesse clad bikes are sporting a single saddle.

    Thanks

    Is that plate included with the R80 G/S bag mount?


    Thank you!

    The bags should be shipped later next week.

    If she doesn't have a problem with riding now, she won't have a problem riding after the install. Happy Holidays,

    Lucky for me she's a Bemmer Babe and not a Harley Hog.:puke1

    Though she is the main reason I need the extra cargo space.

    Thanks Again Merry Christmas

    F.Y.I. this bag system works with stock or Staintune exhausts only.
    DOES NOT work with Supertrapp. Doesn't look like it's gona work with Sito either.

    Finally got mine the other day, fit and finish are first rate, hardware is plentiful for all applications. Still final fitting, use patience and don't rush it. It will fit after you sleep on it.

    Thanks for the pix Shawn, but it doesn't look like they'll fit.

    I've got an original run of these boxes and I've used them with the Sito. It was touching the boxes so I ended up with a big ripple in the aluminum. I don't recommend trying it. Anything with a wide opening at the very back isn't likely to work since the opening at the back is less that 3".

    Those racks look a lot beefier than the ones that came with my Jesse's. The sheet metal split on mine in Guatemala and I had to ride home with ropes holding them on. I saved that cool GS logo that was cut into 'em though and bolted them onto my lids.

    I have a set on my PD and love them. The directions for install were not enough for my skill level so swearing was involved. End of the day they look great. Thanks Al.
