Soft Pannier, Saddle Bag system for the 2017 onward, Suzuki V Strom

DL1000 and DL 650 V-Strom XT narrow, light, soft luggage set.

Australian made unique, tidy, tough and extremely light pannier system.

This system was developed on Andy's bike, The Bumblewee.

Fits both the 650 and 1000 all models from 2017

Weighing in at a grand total of 3.7 Kg, yep that's bags, frames and fittings; the lot! A set of hard box frames often weight 5 to 6kg alone!

Using our proven heavy canvas, Traveller Pannierz we are able to get the right hand bag above the muffler to make the package very narrow. Just what Adventure bike luggage needs to be.

Our frame design approach is to create a somewhat sacrificial but strong frame that is quick to remove and refit. It should be strong enough to take "garden variety" falls and bend back in shape on a bigger prang. A pannier frame set should not risk damaging the bike's subframe.

If your bike looks like this, contact us for another solution.


Important - all sets will require frames (purchased separately).

There are three ways to go.

  1. A set of Traveller Pannierz that gives 15 - 25 l per side and a symmetrical look. Both left and right bags are same shape and size.
  2. A set consisiting of a Traveller on the right and an Avduro Bag on the left to add another 10 litres of space and a asymmetrical look.
  3. Buy a single right hand side bag and use your own left side Andy Strapz pannier bag.

Why Liners?

Not only does it make a waterproof system but allows the contents of the bags to be removed without fiddling with the panniers. 

Our package deals usually include two different colours to help you keep organised.

We are being smashed with orders at present, it may take a while to make yours, allow three weeks, sorry.



Sorry it gets a bit complicated.

Quite a few riders already have a set of our bags. They need to mix and match old and new to get set up on a new bike.


Frames - 2 mild steel, satin black powder coated frames, spacers and bolts. Required, purchased separately.

Choose between

                Traveller Pannier set - Left and Right bags, 6 attachment straps, 2 memory foam rear pads (optional parts) for bikes that need body work protection. Travellers can be used on many different bikes. This might sway your decision. Total max usable volume 50 litres. More info here


                Asymmetrical Pannier Set - An Avduro pannier on the left (max 35l useable) and Traveller on the right. All Avduro straps sewn to bag. Traveller straps has separate attachment straps. Total max usable volume 60 litres.


               Right Hand Bag only (RHS) - If you already have a set of our panniers and want to use them on a new V Strom. Just buy the RHS Bag and use your existing left pannier. You will of course, need the frame set too.


Made in Australia to the highest standards, meeting Military specs, CS12 T/S (tear stop) is 100% Corespun. This ensures that the fabric is suitable for any situation where great strength is required.

Tear Resistance: WARP – 250N, (AS 2001.2.10) and WEFT – 190N via a polyester ripstop thread

Breaking Force: WARP – 3200N, (AS 2001.2.3) and WEFT – 2870N

Hydrostatic Head: 800mm min, (AS 2001.2.17)


Unlike coated fabrics after weaving the thread into cloth our supplier immerses it in their chemical formula and then squeeze it through the actual threads deep into the fabric. This makes it waterproof and breathable. Specially treated to resist mold and mildew.

The Bumblewee, my DL650 XT is set up just as I want it now.

I've tried to find a balance between keeping it road touring friendly and gravel road capable. A bike like this is never gonna be a single track screamer, it's not designed for that but it did need a bit of 'Rallying Up'.

This was a long term ownership planning exercise.

Other than an AA Bag, a set of our frames and Asymetrical Pannierz, I've added

SW Motech

  • Crash bars
  • Bash plate
  • Centre stand (the best I've ever used)
  • Chain Guard
  • Handle Bar cross stay
  • Auxillay light mounts
  • Side stand pad
  • Mirror wideners to reduce wind noise off fairing
  • EVO footpeg widening set
  • City Tank Bag and tank ring
  • Adventure rear rack



  • Screen


  • Radiator guard

MC Performance

  • 3/4 header and muffler with special Andy Strapz baffle mods, throaty but not obnoxious.


Grip Puppies


  • Anankee Adventure Tyres

Suspension R Us

  • Wilbers Rear shock
  • Front fork magic by Izzy


  • Kangaroo Whistles
  • Second accessory outlet LHS near seat lock.
  • ABS Bypass switch
  • AMHP Headlight protector
  • LED Driving lights

    Ordered the pannier racks for my 2021 Vstrom 650. Very quick delivery and a great price. As well as that they are a great local product using Aussie sourced steel. Thanks heaps. Regards Andrew.

  • V Strom Pannier frames and Assymetric panniers

    I have spent weeks researching the best luggage system for my V-STROM. In the end I ordered this set from Andy. The frames bolted straight up and aligned from the box. I was a little unsure of the best method to install the soft panniers, but followed the clear instructions and they fit perfectly with the under seat straps taking the load. The quality of all the parts are 5 star. I’m well impressed.
