Mounting soft panniers on the 900GT
« on: September 18, 2019, 18:00:04 PM »
The 22litre plastic panniers that come with the GT are grand for hotel travel but imho toooo wee for camping, of any duration.
The link is a few pics of my DIY mount system.

Panniers on the bike pic, was ready for the first Tent trip with the Lomo pannier set up a couple of weeks ago. The sharp eyed might see I had not made the wee bracket to tie the mounting plate to the pillion peg OEM pannier bracket.





These pics taken this morning has the additional mounting bracket; almost certainly over engineered but it kept me amused for an hour or two !
