I have read a host of opinionated threads on aluminum panniers since I am in the market. However, rather than passionate love/hate statements, I am starting a poll thread to see how people have voted with their wallets in the ADVrider community, particularly if you ride a GS. I'm sure there are brands that I have left out, but no offense intended. So, what say you ? If you own hard panniers, what type did you purchase ? Oh, by the way, I tried to stick to options mentioned as available in the US.
