Jesse Bags

Is anyone using Jesse bags on their 650XT+?

One of my neighbors has Jesse bags on his Triumph Tiger800 and he absolutely loves them. Very well built. He put rechargable LED light strips(from Home Depot) in the lids, they work well.

They are really terrific



I had to carry for two on our 3 week west coast trio and they were wonderful. Handy hooks on top too for those camping. BTW the rack on the kid's Shad topcase was wonderful for drying clothes.

Nice tuck in spot for spare fuel too on the Jesse'
Company is super responsive as well....but $$

Jesse bags are pretty much the standard others are judged by. They are also a good indicator of the owners income bracket!!!!

fortunately mine came with the bike for $4500 for a 2010 abs in 2015
Had no need for the Jesse capacity.

Sold it for $3800 in 2016 ...missed it ...bought another with factory side cases for $2250 ( high mileage 93k km ) ....sold that for $2250 a year later with even HIGHER mileage ( 120k km )

Aside from a stator ...Vstroms have been bulletproof for me.

I studied all the pannier systems for months and had it narrowed down to between Jesse and Bumot for my Yamaha.

I will advise that Jesse is under new ownership now. This could mean the quality/service/whatever has changed.

That will be something to follow. They probably got to the retirement age! But, there are cases where the right people took over and all was well. Or not, such as with Gerbings!

Saw a facebook post in one of the V-Strom groups yesterday from a guy who sells some very reasonably priced handmade powder coated aluminum cases. He has regular and slim side cases and a top case.

I have no affiliation or first hand knowledge of his products, but I think his stuff is worth investigating. Facebook page is S O L O B O X. *HERE* is his youtube channel. Eric Nolan 360-840-7139.

I am guessing the answer to my question is no.

Perhaps not. Your line of inquiry makes for some great posts though.
I like Ricks mention of the state of the wallet!
