I hope this is an acceptable question for the Weestrom group although also involves a Thumper.
I did some searching but not finding what I am looking for - my bikes: 2015 DL650ADV with OEM hard panniers/rack and I also have 2011 DR650 with no panniers or rack.
I want to set up the DR650 with pannier racks and soft luggage - I hear good things about Nelson Rigg but open to suggestions. Again, apologies for asking on this forum when it involves the DR as well but my hope is you guys have knowledge of both.
From my research the OEM bags on the Wee are SW Motech made for Suzuki. So, the question is: can I buy the Motech racks for the DR and use my Wee hard bags as well as mount soft panniers when I don't want to hard cases?
It would be nice to have both options for each bike as sometimes the hard bags are bulky - especially when on the back roads. We are planning on running the PuppyDog trail this summer and thought the DR with soft bags would be best.
Anyway, hope someone might have more experience with this and can offer suggestions. Also thinking of calling rep at Twisted Throttle or similar supplier as some of them are well versed in these products.
Appreciate any input!
