Touratec Zega Pro Panniers

G'day all, I have just bought a new 650 and am looking at luggage options. Has any one got the new Zega Pro panniers, would love to hear some reports on them before I lay out $2200 Aus.
Thanks

G'dayGareth,
Have a look at locky's panniers on my bike (made in oz)

I'm very happy with them, especially at a1/3 of the price of touratec.
If you have a look round the site he's on here somewhere.

Scroll down until you find Thunderbox toolboxes. [halfway down page 2]
Under tray ute box $169 each.
Side opening lid, key lock.

You would still need to make/buy racks and modify to mount them but hey you can do a lot with the left over $1800

The dimensions are listed so you can compare the size to "proper" alloy pannier boxes.

Some brackets from Bunnings on top of them will make it easy to tie stuff on and no need to remove it all to get in to the box.

I have Happy Trails bags, and am very happy with them. You might want to check them out. Not sure what shipping to AUS would be.

I have them and love them. Just make sure you fasten the lids before you take off. I learned the hard way, even had a lid ran over by a car a few weeks ago. Didn't damage the lid. They are more expensive than the alternatives.
