OK, folks, thanks for all the really helpful threads and posts about Transalp luggage; here's a question about exactly what I'll need to fit the Trax panniers to my XL700V.

So far, I've ordered the following from Motorbikes and Parts:

SW Motech Quicklock EVO removable pannier rack Honda XL700V 08-on
- Plate Type: Trax
- Make: Honda

Sw Motech TraX 45 Aluminium Pannier Left & Right

SW Motech Trax Lock set 3x

Now I've made the order, please tell me I've not missed anything that I need.

Thanks

You might want to consider getting a couple of Quicklock locks so some scroat with a screwdriver doesn't do off with your rack.

These 'ere lock thingys just near the reg plate http://www.xrv.org.uk/photopost/showphoto.php/photo/10206/ppuser/4255/sl/o

Thanks, Doggy. Will think about getting those as well. I've also ordered the top box.

Hello Sharribee, nice to see you around!

I've now got a 1200GS Adventure with all the panniers and Mrs J and I are touring Europe next year. Rather than use her Guzzi, she'll be using the Transalp as, with the right luggage for that too, it's a better bike for the purpose.

I had a 2006 GS up until two months ago, then I saw a brand new but preregistered 1200GS Adventure in the Astle showroom. The price was too good to pass up so I've traded up to the bigger bike.

So far? Brilliant! A really big bike but once it's rolling, it's surprisingly nimble. Weather protection, road presence and power train are streets ahead of the 1200GS which was a pretty amazing bike anyway.

I bought the Transalp for my son to use last summer but I have to say that I'm terribly fond of it. It does 90% of what the GSA does for less than 50% of the price.

Have you got the panniers yet. I was seriously thinking of getting some. Have you got any pics with them on ?
