Being able to use the AT ignition key to lock/unlock is something I like about the Honda panniers.

And I like that you can't take the key out if you haven't locked the pannier to the bike and locked the catches. And therefore you can't set off on the bike and forget you left the panniers unlocked or part open.

I made that mistake with my Givi V47 box. Locked position, removed the key and in a moment of madness thought 'I don't want that bunch of keys in my pocket. I'll shut them in the box' Threw them in and clicked it ****. Realised it about a mile into my journey....Dohhhh

For similar reasons I replaced all the Yale type locks on my doors at home with deadlocks It got embarrassing calling up family members to let me into my own house when I had let the door close with me on the outside and my keys inside

I don't think there's anyone from Malaysia on this thread, but if there is, please let me know if there are stores in KL where I can check out options for side box panniers for my AT!
Thanks in advance.

The advantage of side opening panniers is you can still access their contents when you have a duffel bag across the passenger seat. Try that with top loaders.

Do not want to hurt your feelings kaosad, but these panniers from rear look terrible, sorry.

Kaosad, in the Tusk system you show, do the boxes mount to the frames with any type of quick disconnect or are they simply bolted on the frames from inside the box, or ?? Same question for the connection of the frame itself to the bike. I am seriously considering these due to the low cost vs alternatives but would like to at least know the answers to the above. Did the system come with detailed mounting instructions, and/or could you share that here or email me offline?

I don't own Tusk boxes, but they have a quick disconnect. I have a friend with them and he likes them.
