If your considering soft bags check out givi 35L canyon bags, they’re top rated bags 👍

There's something worth talking about that never seems touched on the luggage discussions, The OEM Honda pannier are rated to max 10Kg using the motorcycle attachment,
roughly both cases are 5Kg, so one can wonder if it's a good idea to use heavy aluminum cases with steel frames weighing allready near the 15Kg mark on each side.

That's also why I went with the Mosko Reckless system, I didn't see the point having frame weighing 10Kg to attach bags on them.

This occurs to me also. It's a heavy bike, and once you start adding stuff it only gets heavier. Given a choice between adding several kg for a pannier rack and several kg in crash bars, I'd sooner get the crash bars and try to save weight with a rackless system.

Horses for courses applies, naturally - if the AT is being used mostly on the road it's less of an issue.

I fitted Bumot pannier frames to my 2017 DCT. I have two sets of panniers. Bumot Defender hard (aluminium) panniers and Bumot Soft panniers. Both lock onto the same Bumot frames. So, removing or fitting either hard or soft panniers on the bike is very easy. It's a great system and gives me the opportunity to easily switch (or mix) sets when I choose to do so. One key fits all locks. Specify on ordering.

They look real nice. Is there somewhere in Canada to buy these or can you only get them from Bumot in Europe?
