Wow your header pipes are blue - I've never seen them that blue before.
Looks like somebody "let the cat out of the Pannier"
BTW...just added a link in the "100 Thread" for Bumoto.
anyone post pics of these?

These over the counter dry bags work well for me. With a small modification they attach to the standard panniers
As per usual the turn signal wires are just not long enough for a Jesse install.
Although the folks at Jesse were great allowing an exchange of the older muffler flange for a newer one that fit the 2012 GSA. Older Jesse Odyssey.
Some very very nice setups to be seen on this thread. I've gone back to the lowly basic system stock luggage because they're much much lighter than the bling. Further, they're a bit more aerodynamic, and they pop off in a pinch. I've a full size RT bag on the left They tend not to bend, dent or crack when dropped as aluminum will. Further, much less likely to cause damage to sub-frame if dropped or low-sided. But HEY, what do I know..
New Globescout Panniers from Advdepot.com and 2x2cycles.com bicycle rack.
with a Givi case
with a Mags bags U-Pack
Kinda dissappointed in the lack of Micatech's in this thread!
Loaded for a 23 day tour of 9 western states.
The GIVI top box is usually empty on the road, and gets used to store my helmet when going into Starbucks, or carrying groceries back to camp.
I've never put gas from the Rotopax into the tank, but the campstove uses it and it's nice to have if I want to see if I can make it to the next "real town" 6 miles away and not get robbed by paying rural fuel prices.
ONE gallon of water goes quickly though!

You have two things I'm very interested in here: the GlobeScout panniers and the 2x2cycles rack. How do you like each? What is the 2x2 install like? I didn't find their info as enlightening as I'd have liked. More pics please? Cost to make everything actually work?
That is awesome!
Just added them to the "100 Threads"...item #51 IIRC
New Globescout Panniers from Advdepot.com
So far I love the Globescout panniers. The attention to quality is unbelievable. However, I can only compare them to previously owned BMW OEM Adventure and Jesse panniers. Bill and Rob from advdepot are great guys to deal with, too. I can't wait for the interior bags and lid organizers to come in.
The 2x2 bicycle rack is ok. I bought it used from an inmate for $75 less than retail. Kind of pricey, but there's really only one on the market right now. I got it mounted to my GSA after the owner and designer of the rack (Garrett) texted me some photos of his setup. It was pretty easy, but hardware to mount the rack to the GSA rack was kind of cheesy. the bolt heads were so small that they needed washers (which were also too small) to keep them from slipping through the GSA rack holes. i thought they were replacements that the previous owner gave me, but Garrett's pictures showed the same screws. again, nothing that cant be replaced at ACE, but you'd think you'd get better hardware on a $300 rack. I took the rack off and plan to purchase some wingnuts to make the rack easier to install and remove. Honestly if my motorcycle wasn't my main mode of transportation, I'd get rid of the 2x2 rack.
i signed up for their newsletter to get $100 off their panniers, although i have not received any emails..did you get a deal on them?
Don't forget your ghetto topbox!!!
Yes, I was their beta tester for the GSA panniers. I submitted a pretty detailed review to them that should be made available shortly. After 3 weeks I'm still loving them and get many compliments on them.

I chose my current luggage setup based upon cost mostly. I have two Seahorse SE720 cases as panniers and a Givi E45 as a top case. Each side case is about 26 liters, so my total capacity is only about 100 liters. The top case cost $150 and the two side panniers cost $140 total. So, my luggage ran me under $300 total (excluding mounts, of course) and is all lockable. I'm happy with that for now.
Okay! I've tried everything to post an image and can't get anything to work. I've searched everywhere, but haven't been able to get anything to post with the available info.
Anyone willing to help ? Thanks.
