Hello!!
I have Givi crash bars and am looking for some inexpensive panniers to attach to them. I have seen some pictures of a few and they look like universal bicycle panniers, but cannot find any online under $60-100. Just wanted to know what everyone is using out there.

I'm using bicycle panniers........made by "SunCoast"....or "Sun????" I paid $9 apiece for mine.......not waterproof, but work well for what I use them for (to carry a bike cover on one side, odds/ends on the other). Ebay is your friend on finding some..........

thanks

Do yours strap to the bars out of the box or did you have to modify them. Do you have any pictures of them to help me narrow them down? I looked on eBay, and nothing came up for SunCoast. There are a lot on there but not many that I think will work.

A good buddy of mine runs a set he got from Mountain Equipment Coop. Not overly expensive and just the right size for small stuff within reach of the rider. I'll probably get a set for my strom next time I'm in the store. Couldn't find them on the website but I'll look a little further and ask my buddy as well.




Found it!

These are cheap, and can surely be rigged to mount on the crash bars, BUT, mounted as designed under the gas cap, these look like they could stop a lot of the wind that comes up the legs. I just ordered some!!

Sorry........I should have followed up last night at home. Here's a couple of pics.......they strap on with velcro straps already on the bags.





I have a set of the Aerostich Tank Panniers.......they are larger than the bar bags......and hang off the tank like Dolly Pardon........and are tricky to use with a tank bag (can be done, you just have to arrange them to clear the tank bag and not foul-up steering lock-to-lock.........and they will make gas fill-ups a PITA when I do use them in the future).

The guy that ZukiGirl mentions is great........he can build you a custom set of bags to your dimensions.

!!!!!

Mark, thats about exactly what I am looking for. I wanted to get them before a week long trip this June, if you can remember where you got them, or the name/style, let me know!! As far as custom set goes, my wife has that covered, I would just prefer to buy something purpose made, instead of trying to rewrite the book.
thanks

I got a set of ATV tank panniers at princess auto for 12 bucks and disguard the center piece that goes over the tank. They each have velcro that I wrap around the crash guards. Each pannier has a large pocket and small pocket and a water bottle carrier.

You can't get much cheaper than these...US Army surplus M40/M42 gas mask carriers, that I picked up in a surplus store in Asheboro NC for (I think) $6.00 each. Once I sold the V-Strom, I remade them into another incarnation for the Super Tenere (Just some Krylon Fusion black paint and some nylon buckles and straps. I paid more for the ADV patches than I did for the bags).

Here's a link to more photos that show how they are attached.
