Pannier racks.

My 2017 Africa Twin and I tend to do shorter runs, but make one or two longer camping rides a year. We fall alot, and dont mind gear that has seen hard use as long as it is fully functioning, has all the parts, and doesnt come with any surprises. Looking for racks with a brace for offroad use (SW-Motech, Happy Trails). Let me know.
Thanks,
Peter

I have a 2018 ATAS. I got touratech pannier racks and mounted tusk panniers on with a happy trails universal 4 point mounting kit. The touratech rack, while expensive, is very tough 18mm steel and can take plenty of tip overs. The tusk boxes are an incredible value! I bolted large drawer pulls onto the lids so I can carry them around like suitcases.

Edit: I wanted to add that the touratech rack not only clamps onto the 4 pannier slots but it also bolts in under the passengers foot peg and there’s a cross brace between the two sides of the rack. I would trust it off-road.

If you're after hard luggage and money is no object then I'd recommend Jesse Luggage. If you plan to go offroad, which it sounds like you do, then I personally wouldn't use hard panniers (fear of injuring my leg/ankle) and go with a soft set up. Use whatever rack you want like Givi, Heppco Becker, Touratech etc and use soft bags like Wolfman. I run HB racks with Wolfman Expedition Dry Bags. Mosko Moto has a neat set up but I don't care for the big plates that stay fixed to the racks....though the convenience is hard to beat. You know that saying...."Opinions are like Aholes....everybody has one." Ha!

Are you looking for just the racks or panniers also?
