    What straps do you use to fix soft luggage to the top of your hard panniers?

    As part of sorting out mine and my daughters luggage for our trip to Norway, I want to be able to camp as well as stay in hotels/b&b's. However, sleeping bags/tents will take up a lot of space so I have decided to strap them to the top of the panniers. I have seen lots of different ways: rope...
  3. Mosko Reckless vs BMW Vario Panniers

    I've been looking for an alternative to replace the rather bulky Vario panniers for my 2016 LC GS. I'm looking for something that doesn't require ugly scaffolding on the side of the bike and I want it to be soft luggage rather than hard, especially considering that I'm looking for a lower...

    One of my pannier lid retaining wires broke the other day so I've been looking to replace it. The first issue why trying to figure out what the bloody thing is called to search for a replacement! I gave up on that so thought I'd buy the individual parts and just make some up - found the...

    F800 GS Adventure Travel Edition - Luggage Options.

    I'm just looking a second opinion from someone who know more than me... I purchased the above bike and it comes with pannier rails and mount at the rear for a top box. I went to BMW to see what options they had for a top box. The result was I was informed you need a box, a mounting plate...

    Clip on givi fitting for guitar case

    I carry my hardshell guitar case sideways across the back of my 1150GS with umpteen bungee cords. It works ok and doesn't stick out much more than the panniers. How amazingly elegant it would be to convert an old guitar case so it could clip direct into my GIVI rack. Anyone out there got a...
