  2. Hepko&Becker frame with Touratech panniers?

    I got a set of Touratech panniers (41 ltr) and a hepko and becker pannier frame for my varadero (xl1000 va6). Now admitedly I only had 5 minutes, but the panniers mounting kit did not seem to fit inside the H&K frame hoop properly. Now in my innocence I thought that all ally panniers and...

  8. Make my own pannier racks

    Mechanical Advice
    I have been a bicycle-tourist for 23 years. I have also motorcyle-toured a bit - 15 years but not so many trips per year. Currently my TA has a huge Givi top box and a tiddly magnetic tank bag that works very well, thank you. I'd like to get some side panniers to expand my luggage space a...
