I rode bicycles before I rode motorcycles, so in my head, panniers are soft bags (and pronounced PAN yers), so to prevent confusion when it comes to motorcycles, I just call them hard cases/boxes/luggage.
Some steam locomotives had water storage tanks either side of the main boiler - known as pannier tanks. These may well have pre-dated bicycle panniers so I don't think cyclists have precedence over the term.
Yup, cyclists don't. The word pannier originally referred to baskets slung on the sides of pack animals (in old French, panier means bread basket). But I'd never heard of it before I got into cycling, so I first associated the word with nylon soft bags, and not aluminum luggage.
