jesse luggage is great stuff, not cheap, but good stuff, love mine.
I went with the Jessies, not on a Strom, but panniers are panniers. The HT panniers looks fine, Micatech, even the Caribou. I'd shy away from the Trax, even tho they look awesome I heard they are not very crash worthy.
I like it!
Am I the only one with Micatechs?
SMURPH, that bike looks cool.
Gotta say...Lovin' the olive green...nice job Smurph!!!
The second iteration of the Givi PL532 side racks have quick-locks previously seen only on SW Motech's design. Now with a twist of the triangle tool, the two racks come off to leave only unobtrusive tabs.
Better to see dat pipe with, right 'lil Red?
And just as AZstrommer & Wulf did, the non-pipe side being one inch closer to the bike allowed for the fatter E45 case, and the thinner E36 case went on the pipe side. Together they make the cases look symmetrical on the bike. Also important for aerodynamics, right?
Oooh, gotta love those Italian designers...
I bought a set of touratech zega boxes on ebay and they came with a touratech side case frame for a dl650. I ride a KTM 690 so its of no use to me. It looks to be brand new, all hardware is there, its not scrached or bent. PM me an offer.
I loaned them my 05 V-Strom to fit the bags to - they sold several sets almost immediately.
How do these compare in weight to ally panniers, which are around 4.5kg for a similar size (40l). Did you mount them to be removable or are they bolted on permanently.
"Bolted on" already implies "removable"
I don't know for sure but the Ammo cans I have lifted around are not light by any means. I would say alot more than the Jesse luggage I had on my R12GSA. Would be a cheap way to go and they re probably water tight... Don't look bad either.
STEAL away!! :) It's actually Krylon Fusion Olive Drab.

Thanks MikeBike4!! Was fun to do. Painted it twice more since! haha.
Thanks roadchick! I miss the Olive Green. May return to that again soon. Though it's now all BedLiner.
Long time, but some guy spotted my rig today and seeing this page I thought I'd throw in my photos.
All you guys with pelicans and other massive cases and trunks. . . I respect you. I really do. But none of you are in my league.
Mk II case system.
The cases will not touch down unless the bike is on its side. The front cases are mounted on to the crash bars via U bolts. The rear cases are all mounted to a custom built rack.
And a few showing the Mk I case system
Used this for a bit, but the cases (1440 top loaders) were too small inside and I mounted them too low. The good part was that I could unhook them and then wheel them around stores and what not.
I put some soft panniers up front and it took a lot of the buffeting away. I would say try front panniers before spending a ton on windshields that don't work.
Givi 45 on top (SRA3101 alluminum top plate)
Givi 21 on sides (PLR3101 Givi rapid release system)
my dl650 with givi trekkers
Here are some pics of the Jesee bags on my 2012 DL650.
A fellow inmate donated an extra set of Jesse Odyssey II racks to me after I posted a WTB ad for some sidecase racks on the FM. I'd had these ammo cans sitting around forever and decided to put them on my Wee until I could afford something better. Ordered the mounting hardware from Jesse. Had to rig up a solution to get them to work, which included welding a piece of square tubing onto the backside as a spacer. The genius who welding them for me didn't take into account that the heat from the weld would warp the boxes. Getting the lids on and off is a little bit of a pain, but they've gotten me through 4 months or so back and forth to school and work with a safe place to store my laptop and books. Not real happy with how low I had to mount them either, but that's the best I could do at the time.
Mocked up with a bicycle U-lock mounted pelican 1550 top case...(budget quick release)
I'm finally ready to upgrade to a REAL pannier set now. Trying to decide between Happy Trail Tetons, Jesse Odyssey IIs, and Caribous. Pelicans hold a special place in my heart, but I prefer top loading and the looks of the aluminum sets. Also need a top case that will hold a full face helmet. Decisions, decisions...
I think they looked great on the 2011 and previous models, but for some reason they look awkward on the 2012. Maybe it's the less bulky front end body work. Love the 2012 model, but not with Jesse's.
