These were mentioned on another forum, so I can't take credit for finding them  :) cheap enough.

I love the 'Buy 3' price.

And the realistic proof of waterproofing (they do include a rain cover though, to be fair):



Good price, I agree, Rae. But why pay that bloomin' much, when you can save 2 * £4:  ;D

At either price, definitely worth a try, but it's worth adding some protection where they touch the bodywork. It may not show after 3 or 4 rdes, but after 10k miles you'll some lovely reminders about where they sit.

...and the bodywork on the rear of the K is NOT soft luggage friendly as far as siting and stability is concerned. But, as you say, cheap enough for a holiday.

Well, one of our members goes on tour with all his 'about to be discarded' socks, pants and T shirts neatly packed in his cases and leaves each set, once worn, in the Hotel bins. Goes out fully loaded and gets lighter as the tour progresses.

Now he could just dump the cases too  ;D

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

That is clear proof that the line between genius and insanity is not really that broad.

I am impressed.

I resemble that remark! :D but I think disposal panniers may be a step too far.  I don't think they'd cope well with ... er ... Autobahn runs!

Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!
