RedKLR650 and KV,
tractor supply's website sucks, so I looked around for a link with photo, and found them at Sam's Club for the best price I've seen yet!!! (Less than $30)
Amazon has them for about $37.00, but no photo. Here is Amazon's link:
Definately the same ones I bought at TSC (they are made by Quad Gear)
I like mine a lot...nice, heavy duty bags
Thanks to this thread I got my Amazon/Sams/TSC panniers today and I'm very impressed and pleased with them. They are not huge but they fit my KLR well. Brilliant versatile well made.
I picked up a set of these at TSC the other day too at the recommendation of this thread. They look like a nice set, just needs to warm up so I can try them out.
I got a set of these (TSC) based on recommendations here, but my knees hit them big time (and I'm not tall). How do you guys deal with that?
So I decided to brave the cold to go out and throw mine on. Here's a couple of pics:
Not bad for $37.00.
Nice rig! And then it also looks like you carry a machete all the time. How do LEOs deal with that? Seems like it would be easy to mount a 410 gauge "Snake Charmer" in a similar manner.
I bought these same bags after seeing them on this thread. They arrived today...I could not be more impressed....I wonder how they sell them so enexpensivly...highly recommended!
I used a set when I went to Purdoe Bay, made the bike balance out really good. I got mine form KLR650.com and paid I think around $70.00. Arrowstitch has them also and they are in the Whitehorse Gear catalog.
I've run tank panniers on my KLR for years-------and on my Husky on a couple 3,000 mile offroad trips. It was weird at first----but I got used to it---- now I don't even notice it. It would feel funny without them.
BigDog - I'm looking for a little more carrying space on my multi day off road trips. From a pure off road techical riding standpoint what fare better in the practicality department, tank panniers or soft saddlebags?
I was concerned the tank panniers would be where I want my knees to be when gripping the tank.
The seem fine for fireroading but what about more serious trails? Anybody?
While tank tank panniers are great-----------they are the last thing I select when packing. I'll try to get everything in my back pack, soft saddlebags, tail rack and small enduro tank bag.
When I still don't have the room I'll put the tank panniers on. Yeh---I agree--for an aggressive dirt bike it's kind of over the edge.
Thanks for confirming. I guess i'm now in the market for dirt bike soft bags .
The ATV Tank Cargo bags are multi-purpose! They make a nice set of low slung saddle bags too...
YARRR! Swampthing, is that a black Chia Pet seat I be eyeing matey? Seriously though, what's on the gas tank?
Nothing on the gas tank, but I do have an Alaska Leather Sheepskin Buttpad on the seat. Is that what yer talkin' about?
So that's what it is called? :huh
Tourmaster seems to make a nice one too...
Unfortunately they are temporarily out of stock and don't list a price.
