Hey guys. I'm looking for some ideas for Panniers/luggage systems to use on my F4i for long trips. At the moment I have a rucksack that I cart around, but it doesn't seem to be helping my back.
Any suggestions, thoughts or comments?
Before I got the Trumpet, I did alot of touring on the TLR and here's what I preferred for luggage. Please note that the TLR has high pipes, so anything that hangs down was strictly out.
This bag is awesome. It has a base that actually locks on same as, and in place of, the pillon seat and then the bag itself zips on and off of that. Great set-up. I'd highly recommend it. Click me for the "Tail Bag". It used to be called "Rocket Locker" and had a disclaimer saying they were in no way related to Joe Rocket, but I guess that didn't satisfy the legal avenues.
Best of anything I've ever seen or used. I've had mine for 5 years and it's been everywhere I have on the bike, through all sorts of weather. It mounts with 6 magnets and the bottom is covered with some sort of soft, non-slip rubber. I have never had it slip on me and I lean quite heavily against it to take the weight off my wrists. Click me to see the Joe Rocket tank bag Once again, I'd highly recomment it.
Works very well and nothing scratches my 929. I don't like tank bags or saddle bags. It doesn't matter how "soft" the material is that is resting on your bike's plastic, once you use it and dust gets between, it scratches.
