    World beater panniers(aka Verns panniers)

    Ok folks,here we go again then,a new year and the old donkey is coming back out of the shed due to popular demand,and pannier production is going ahead again,as well as a few other things I've been working on over the winter?Wait and see

    I'm aiming at having a batch of panniers done for the end of the month,so you should just be able to tell me what colours you want,I get them anodised,and you come and get them(or they get posted or something) and everyones happy.

    If anyones interested,can you post here,because I want a few sets left over when I make the batch.

    And a happy new year to you all as well

    As if by magic

    Any topbox designs Vern ? Something the size of the large bmw (left) adv pannier. I've had one helmet nicked and the box tried twice ! Dublin is getting very dodgy ! So a stronger topbox but with style is on the cards.

    Improvements

    Vern: Look here to see an improvement that is really worth taking into consideration to new owner's (maybe you can offer an upgrade kit to existing owner's before I do it...)

    Handles to grab them and a "hanger" bracket to keep them in place while attaching them...

    Vern,

    Interested in a set of black ones for ADV. I currently have the standard exhaust fitted. I know Fanum had a lot of trouble with heat from the exhaust, so do I need to change the height or type of can?

    Hi Speggo, I had slight trouble with my exhaust heating up the panniers too, but made a flat alloy plate that screwed to the Vern mounting frame and deflected the hot air away.... worked perfectly.

    Other than that the Panniers are Brill!

    I have the "heath protector" made by the Maestro himself and no problem with the panniers contents...
