    Well, I've now got Andy's Panniers and, would you believe, the first person I spoke to after putting them on was the fabricator for the support frames!
    I plan on my first long trip in November. I have (I think and hope) everything, but just have to make sure it works and I know how to work it.
    Do you get cold hands under gloves? If so, how did you solve the problem?

    Thanks - I'm convinced i"m on the right path. Now to just get it all and get out, trying it out. My other solution for some travels will be to stay at Youth Hostels - a change for w/w gear to drain out if the weather turns bad.
    I'm also planning on getting the B & B bashplate!

    it's a great way to get around.I've got some andy strapz panniers[canvas] tough as nails
    he used my dl 650 to make up the support frames for the bags 3 days before a trip to central coast NSW. back along the west side of the blue mountains -great devide
    and boggong hwy. the bags hold about 20 lt each [jerry can size] carry 2 change of clothes .ww gear, food & cooking gear for 3 days before re-supp.swag rolled up on pack rack.
    apart from a B&b bashplate and some stock handguards no further mods required by me
    found Andy a good bloke to deal with..
    happy trails Douggie.

    There's nothing I can't do, but there's a lot I won't do.
    SUZI - I'm in love with her, but I'm afraid she's taking me for a ride.
    SUZI - she dumped me, I was hurt, but we're both recovering now. We'll be going out together again once we're both feeling better.
    We're both better now, but with heated grips, SUZI's now hot stuff!
    Alas, poor SUZI [DL650 L2A 2012 - 2015 R.I.P.], I knew her well. After being dumped a second time, I must farewell her.

    I'm not flighty, but SUZI II [DL650 L5A] has now stolen my heart.
