    After thinking about ordering the triumph or sw motech bag I went for the sw motech as I liked the solid mounting bracket and neat small finish to it . The bag is smaller than the triumph one ( I have the larger of the two bags ) but suits my needs on short travels . I can choose between my 30& 60 Ltr roll bags that can go across the rear seat and when I extend the rear rack that will be for my tent etc on larger journeys .

    Looks great, but it definitely is quite a bit smaller. Have you had to test out the waterproofing yet?

    No issues letting in water with the British down pours as yet + it comes with an inner dry bag . Good thing with sw motech is that they use the same bracket fixing for there side bags so you could upgrade to a different larger bag and just buy the bracket ? The sysbag is 15ltr .

    Would be nice if they updated their website! You know for us anti social types.

    I am still waiting for Hepco Becker to be able to ship to Canada...

    Cheers,

    Good god - why are Moto brand/retail sites so terrible? Metal Mule is the first to market with a proper two sided rack for this bike and they have one, tiny, shitty picture on the site, take from a useless angle. I can imagine these small companies internally complain about the struggle - but they don't actually know how to SELL their products. Good grief!

    Thanks! They look fantastic - too bad I've already ordered the H&B single sided one - should be here any day. Dangit.

    (First time I've seen an XE without hand guards - looks good!)

    So far I have ordered the Triumph Rugged Rack and Pannier, as well as the SW-Motech SLC with 2 bag options. What has arrived in time for my trip this week? The Triumph rack and one SW bag.... (insert face palm). I was going to return the Triumph gear and only keep the SWM setup, but now I may mount the Triumph rack and finagle an old backpack onto it for this trip. Worst case I can sell the Triumph rack (at a minor loss) down the line.

    Those Metal Mule racks look great. I'm tempted to buy a set for future use even though I'm pretty good for weekend trips with my Saddleman 1300 tailbag, Triumph Pannier bag, and Triumph 40L Drybag. I just need to find a good plastic tool tube that fits properly inside the Triumph Pannier Rack.

    I have to say the Iron and Resin bags are nice but they are advertised as having 30L capacity which must be for a pair. I bought a pair and was hoping to do away with the Triumph side bag but that is not going to happen. I stuffed the Iron and Resin bag full and then took what was inside and stuffed the Triumph 25L side bag and barely got near 2/3 full. My best guess is each Iron and Resin bag is 14-15L max. They are advertised and sold individually.

    So got my Hepco & Becker left side rack mounted up the other day and then got my new Caribou Cases just after that.

    The rack went on pretty easily, and the CC / Pelican 35L set up is bomber. Need to find longer rear rack ring clips for the new box as it stands a little prouder off the plate than the old worn out box did. Stoked on the kit. Can't feel the 'lopsidedness' of it at all even with 25lbs in the left box. Pics are without the top box installed - will share once I've got new clips and can attach it properly.

    A couple more now with the top box more or less sorted.

    That looks highly functional.

    @frytown What base plate is that for the top box?

    Grrrr! Still waiting on Hepco Becker Germany to be allowed to ship to Canada so that I can order the side pannier rack. They will ship to most places including the US but not Canada because of "restrictions".

    By the time I will be able to order it I would have replaced the bike (hope my wife doesn't read this site). :-)

    Cheers,

    It's the top box plate made by Caribou that I originally used on my 800 Roadie, then my 800XC, then my AT, then my UGS, and now the XE. It's been around! I had to bolt the new top box to it though, as the old twist clips don't work on the newer Pelican boxes. But my bolts have knobs on them on the inside of the box, so it's almost quick release.

    Honestly, the Triumph rear rack that the plate is mounted to isn't very stiff and it causes a fair bit of wobble with the box on there. Not dangerously so, but a little goofy.

    Functional is the right word. But somehow I think there is a conflict with the look of the bike.

    edit: nothing wrong with that, of course
