Weighing in at a grand total of 3 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.

There are three ways to go.
Important - all sets will require frames (purchased seperately).
Not only does it make a waterproof system but allows the contents of the bags to be removed without fiddling with the panniers.
Frames - 2 mild steel, satin black powder coated frames, spacers and bolts. Required, purchased separately.
Traveller Pannier set - Left and Right bags, 6 attachment straps, 2 memory foam rear pads 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 exisiting left pannier.

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.
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.
