A fully loaded bike can be a little tricky to get on with Panniers for sure, at any age. My method is to stand next to bike, lift my right leg high enough to grab the suit fabric at the bottom with my right hand, left hand on the grip, then I lift my leg straight over the seat. Very easy to do. Not very glamorous, but it works.Considering Givi Outback 37L side cases for my 2014 1000. I'm concerned that since I'm older and less flexible these days, I may have a problem getting on and off the bike. Anybody have a set of these installed? Thanks for your feedback.
