Picked this up instead of hard luggage for the KLR 650. Wanted something that I could easily take off of the bike and take with me. Does a great job and seems pretty well built. A lot of storage room, and is expandable. I had room to spare with my Tourmaster transition jacket, gloves, riding pants and misc items that I needed for work. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something that they don't want permanently attached to the bike.Read All Reviews

Bought for my 2007 KLR because friends recommended. I'm totally happy with both the panniers and the rack system. First, don't believe dopes who say they're 'cheap' or 'thin' or claim the install process to be difficult. I will say you should get a friend to help - this will save a LOT of frustration when it comes time to mark the holes for drilling. Rocky Mtn's video is easy to follow...a 9 year old could assemble this based on it. The only recommendation I'd make would be to disclose the bolt/nut sizes just to save some time. Also, on the rear rack that goes under the tail light the top nuts barely fit in there - you need a needle-nose pliers to hold the nuts while you drive the bolt in. Also, in the video they make reference to another video showing how the lock/latches are assembled. I couldn't find it but, again, a 9 year old could do it. Very intuitive. Now, here's a tricky part. In attaching the brackets to the panniers, the video suggests drilling out the two corner bolts, tighten and then use the bracket as a guide to drill the other holes. This seems logical until you discover the 11/32" bit they recommend DOESN'T fit through the pre-drilled holes in the bracket. Also in the video it doesn't say how you now have to drill through the bracket slightly to bore it out to accept the 11/32 bit. Once you figure this out, however, it goes smoothly. On mine I had to use two washers on each of the three upper bolts in order to get the latch to work. But then they went on smooth as silk. Net, these are awesome boxes! Solid and well designed. Thanks Rocky Mtn for making these available!Read All Reviews

I have had this on the crossbar (MX style) of the handlebars on my VStrom for at least 3-4 years. I love it! It holds a lot of stuff and has been very durable. It will keep small electronic items dry in the rain (although it's not completely waterproof if you're in an extended downpour). On long trips, I keep snacks in it; easy for me to pull out a granola bar or some beef jerky. I find it to be a great alternative to a tank bag, which you have to remove at gas stops, and worry about every time you go into a store or gas station. Highly recommended, though you'll want to look at the dimensions and make sure there is room for it based on the handlebar/gas tank layout of your bike.Read All Reviews
