These retro-style panniers look great. There are bespoke steel carriers for the Triumph Bonneville, Ducati Scrambler and BMW RnineT, but we have a universal-fit strap that attaches around the seat for the panniers to fit on. So basically it can be adjusted and used on any motorcycle.
The panniers have a reinforced back and base, with synthetic leather at the bottom and a hard-wearing, water-resistant canvas top. They also have dry bags to go inside the panniers.
The panniers close using a rolltop with Velcro. We’ve used these on several motorcycles with no problems – they’re light, don’t stick out far, and different sizes are available if you need to avoid an exhaust on one or both sides. There is a matching tail pack and tank bag too.
SW-Motech even has a Legend Gear Smartphone bag to make the whole look complete. The Smartphone back can also be used as a wallet.
The SW-Motech Legend Gear solution is maybe not the cheapest option, but it’s solid and well-made quality. The Legend Gear luggage solution is ideal if you want the traditional retro-look you want.
The SW-Motech Legend Gear luggage products are in Thailand sold by Panda Rider and prices are not even that high, especially after you compare the quality to some of the saddlebag I have seen sold in Thailand.Tag: SW-Motech Luggage Saddlebag Panniers Soft-Luggage Gear Legend-Gear Retro-Style Cafe-Racer Scrambler
