    If you go to a place like REI, you can find something like this that would work for anchors. I have used a couple of them on my bike and they work real well. They are used for rock climbing.

    I went with Kreiga also. 32 liters each side. Very satisfied.

    Anyone know if, or where I can find something like this? Apparently kreiga won't sell them individually...

    Anyone here know if there are any rackless, under the seat options for the 790/890 R? I ride a lot of offroad, so I prefer not to go with the wider, hard panniers. But, I sometimes have a passenger on longer blacktop trips and would like the space to carry for 2. Obviously over the seat bags are not an option and prefer not to have 2 bag systems.

    I had the Wolfman Rocky Mountains under the seat for a trip last summer. They're nice bags, but I like the MM scout 25s better. The scouts are smaller, but that helps me not over pack. The Wolfman bags are great when my daughter is with me. Camping gear for 2 takes more space than I can get in the 25ltr scouts. 86951518.jpg

    Yes the Givi box is big, but I need the room when 2 up. It also does triple duty. Storage, camp table for cribbage or uno, and food storage to keep the raccoons and squirrels out.

    Are you able to mount these without a rack system? If you are using a rack system, which one? I like the bags and have heard great things aboit wolfman products.

    Here is my set up for 2 weeks. Light weight and dependable. I also made up anchor brackets that mounted where my pass. pegs used to be mounted. I strap my lower saddle bags to one opening and my travel bag to the other . It works great. 20200803_142432.jpg 20200528_163420.jpg

    The bike has the Touratech/KTM racks. TT makes them. Not sure how they would hang without the rack. The front could easily be tied at the passenger peg mount.
    They are very nice bags. I had the small and medium sized rallies also, tied them to the front crash bars. 1658603987.jpg

    The Kriega bags say they're "structured". How structured? Looking more at the Kriega 22L bags.

    I'm looking for something "rackless" that fits on these curved racks. The left side is less curved than the right with the muffler under there.

    I'm in this thread because the Siskiyou panniers are one of the leading candidates.

    Reckless 80 also look good.

    I don’t think the Kreiga would work well with curved racks. I use their flat backing plate.


    I tried the Siskiyou panniers with racks. Didn’t fit well. Returned them. They are designed to hang over the seat.
