Necessary evil for everything that I need for a 4 day excursion to the track, which involves a 400 mile ride each way. They're not a fashion accessory and won't be on the bike for 1 minute longer than necessary.

To use your analogy it might indeed be like taking Miranda Kerr to dinner in a bomb suit, but it's what happens in the bedroom afterwards that counts ;-)

Don't worry too much about rubbing. You just need to put some of this anti-slip matting across the tail of the bike before you lay the bags on top. I've used this this stuff on all my long bike journeys and never had any rub marks on the farings.



It costs just a few pounds from your hardware store for a roll. It's most commonly used to stop cell phones sliding off car dashboards and is very grippy.

The bags look like this from behind.

Off topic, but have you ridden Black Spur on your Panigale? Did it (5x) on a Honda hornet, but it must be a real buzz on the 1199.

Have you tried the panniers with a pillion ?

I know this post will make a lot of people cringe but there is a good reason for the question ? Last year went to DWW in Misano from the UK with the girlfriend two up on the 1199 with a tank bag and backpack !! the memories are still painful ? will probably head down again next year and thougt the panniers may be a good solution ? I had thought about Diavel Strada but must have been having a "dark day"

Spoke to a 1199 owner recently who had these and he thought they were fantastic.

Highly recommended.
