    The TUSK rack is awesome and was fairly easy to install. The Nelson Rigg bags seem very tough and appear to be made of quality materials. I wish the kit had included the soft bag mounts from tusk. I've only mounted the bags but haven't had a chance to fill them up and test them yet.

    Prepare to fiddle with parts to get it to fit right.
    I was apprehensive about drilling holes into my Africa Twin but I watched the installation video that RM made and decided that installation was pretty slick when complete.

    One issue I had was I drilled the holes too far to the rear of the fender and was to the outside of the adjustment range of the rack. Luckily, I was just barely able to fit the bolt through the hole after tapping it slightly forward.

    The passenger footpeg mounting plate on both left and rear racks were all bent out of shape leaving 1/2" gap between the frame and plate in the worst place. I had to clamp both into a vise and bend them, to my delight they flex like butter (made of aluminum, I assume) and installation quickly proceeded henceforth.

    I love the aluminum billet parts that sit right in the stock mounting location, it was the most satisfying part of the whole process. However don't leave the rack hanging only by this part because the whole rack will tip off the bike and clang onto the garage floor. Ask me how I know.

    The bags strapped right onto the racks as easily as I thought they would. I still took a few minutes to get equal tension between the over seat straps and fitment to the bike. Then, I wrapped the excess straps back and tied them up neatly.

    These bags look so nice and have quality parts. The g-hooks were backwards on a couple straps, which indicates rapid assembly and low quality control but they are easy to turn around so I'm hoping they are not an omen of bad quality down the road.

    Installation took me about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I'm sure the second time, I could get it down to 45 minutes or less.

    I'm not fond of how the straps look over the passenger seat.
    These bags look great on my bike.

    Excellent product, well made, good fit, nice hardware, excellent price.
    Great product, well made and good fit. I took it apart and had it powder coated another color, looks spectacular. Hardware was better than expected. Only reason for four stars, I think it should have cost more and included the soft mounting plate kit.

    Great Combo
    The best bang for your buck is when you are buying this combo. No separate. The rack is easy to install if you are not afraid to do a little work. The Nelson Rigg Sierra Bags are great, less risk of accident compare with the stainless steel ones and lighter. Highly Recommended!

    Great Bags and Rack!
    Although the installation was easy there were a few issues related to the bike more than the rack. the bags, although loose-looking are really quit sturdy, however, time will tell (based on some of the videos I've seen. I used them for the first time with a soft frozen foods bag and some cool blocks on an 86 degree day (F) and my 8 pack of Angus beef cheeseburgers and creamer stayed cool and frozen for over 4 hours and the panniers easily handled the weight and bulk. Cant wait to go camping!

    Great Product!!!!
    I ordered this item and it came exactly as described. It is exactly what I was looking for. I would say I couldn't be happier but there are a few things I would have liked to seen on the Rigg bags. It would have been nice to have some attachment points on the front and rear of the bags like maybe mollie attachments so you could attach a water bottle or other gear. This is an oversight on Nelson-Riggs part. Other than that, this product is great.

    Can these be mounted to the tusk rack pannier brackets to enable quick release/change without compromising their waterproof qualities?
    Calvin L on May 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes these can be used with the quick release and will not compromise the waterproofing.
    Does this set come with the top rack as well? That covers the top of the rear fender
    Richard S on May 3, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: No! There is a support bar that forms a ridged support for the bag mounts that runs to the rear of beneath the license plate mount. Although I do recommend the Tusk Rear Luggage Mount as a separate purchase too!
    The Nelson bag and tusk rack package should include the tusk soft luggage mounting plate to allow easy removal of bags, but i don't see it in picture. Is one expected to strap bags directly to the rack?
    Jeff G on Oct 20, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I bought this setup in August to go on my DRZ 400s. It comes with the heat shields that have the two, over the seat, Velcro straps that connect the two sides. The bags have straps that do wrap around the racks themselves to secure them to the rack.
    They worked just fine and stayed dust free. I just took the insert bags out every day to bring my gear in with me. The vinyl is fine on the bags but I punctured one in the side when I dropped the bike in a rocky, technical section and used a big tire patch on both sides to reseal. Pretty good value but Not going to be as durable as a strong cordura bags with a waterproof insert.
    If these are bolted to the pannier racks, do they still need straps over the seat ?
    greg s on Aug 28, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I can not answer this question directly because I have never attempted to bolt this to the rack but I share your feelings about the Velcro strap. the rigid backing on the bag (pannier) itself is somewhat flexible but moderately stiff. It supports primarily the weight in the lower 1/2 of the bag against the rack but when full, without the straps, the weight at the top will pull away from the rack, at the top, causing the straps at the bottom and mid-side to fail to keep the bag on the rack. Having said this however, I can envision, in my minds eye that if mounted to a aluminum plate with bolts, as can be found at Tractor Supply, this "might" work.

    I use my panniers, when I am not camping, to do my weekly shopping and put a soft cooler with ice blocks in one side then proceed to fill both to maximum volume and weight successfully. Hence I can see the necessity for the over seat Velcro straps!

    Do you have to relocate taillights on 07 Klr650 for proper fitment?
    A shopper on May 13, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I have a 2011 KLR 650 and had to relocate the turn signals but not the taillight. The brackets and wire came in the kit.
