    Edit: I've posted this in the wrong sub-forum, it should be in "Ridiculous streetbikes with 6 CPUs and too much HP" or in "Equipment", sorry.

    I'm planing to exchange my '13 V-strom DL650 for an '16 1190 adventure R at the dealer and I'm wondering if I can keep my original panniers for the new bike to save some $$ (the dealer won't give me much for my old panniers and new ones are the price of a scooter).

    I can't find much info on compatibility between panniers and racks. I believe the Suzuki-branded panniers are actually rebranded Trax since they are identical to this model here .

    Other than the Suzuki logo that i'll have to cover some way, is there anything else I should be weary about ? I'll have to buy some trax rack from a 3rd party, the Touratech sold by KTM won't be compatible, right ?
