I was about ready to try a pair of the Apduro panniers but clicking on their website shows an error code....I am presuming they've gone bust?
Anyway, just had a 9 day two up tour of Scotland with everything we needed (we weren't camping) crammed into the 3 Honda plastic cases. It worked, just. I'm looking at better options but don't actually want much more space than the 105 litres I get from Honda. I just want it to be easier to pack.
I'm starting simple, by buying a givi top box plate so that I can use a 58 litre top box I already have. This is the least costly attempt at getting packing right. Light and bulky stuff in the top box, use the two Honda (SHAD) inner bags in the panniers for clothes/toiletries etc
(Whilst perusing various manufacturors and shops websites, I've found some laugh out loud gems. Apparently a 58 litre Givi Tracker top box weighs 7kg. Someone asked if it was suitable for their Suzuki. The store responded by stating, Yes, provided the total weight of top box and contents don't exceed your 6kg weight limit.WTF)
