    I started with the cyclerack pannier and a free pair of givi e21's



    The pannier was a bit small so i had to make an adapter plate and i put on a givi lug kit which is the attachments pieces for most givi boxes.

    Last just put on the pannier/adapter plate. The givi boxes have a quick disconnect so they just pop on and off of the adapter plate or just take off the whole pannier which only takes a few seconds.

    Those look real nice. Do they move around at all, as in sway from side to side?

    If they are empty you can move them a little by hand. I rode about 2 miles at 40mph or less and they were empty and didnt move around. My turn signals are to long but they flex enough to be out of the way until i shorten them or get shorter ones. I dont think they will move especially if They have weight in them. We will see.

    Thanks goes to Hodakaguyfor this mod that I used to shorten my turn signals



    Time to shorten the turn signals to get them to fit behind the Bags. I looked around at aftermarket ones and didn't see any I really liked...So I just modified the stock ones.







    Here I started by taking the stock turn signals apart and cutting down the signal stocks.









    Next I went to the local hardware store and bought a couple of these hollow threaded shafts that you use to hang light fixtures in your home, and cut it to size.









    Here I installed two layers of heat shrink tubing onto the exposed wires of the turn signals, now that the signal stocks are shorter the wires will be exposed to the ends of the threaded tubes .









    Here's the wiring installed back on the bike. The factory rubber boot that keeps water out of the signal will no longer work with the new size nuts that are used on the new threaded piece. Soooo, I used some black RTV to seal the wiring where the shrink tubing comes out of the threaded tube.









    Here you can see the difference in the shortened turn signal vs the stock signal. Now just repeat for the other side.

    Those panniers look great...just the right size and the price was great..free is good!!.

    I modified the OEM panniers from my V-Strom and installed them on the TW.They work great but at speeds over 100kph or less when driving into a stiff headwind the bike weaves/wobbles.

    I am curious if you have noticed any different handling characteristics with your set up??

    Well on my last road trip in October to the blue Ridge Parkway we hit up the Heintooga/Balsam mountain loop. 28 miles of tight twisty curvy one way gravel road. I dont remember if it was on this road or another but there was a long section of gravel woops just enough to get a little air off of them. As you can see in this pic that that cyclerack panniers "left one" bent down. I dont think its from the weight as much as its from them flapping up and down while on the woop sections. The nylon attachement they come with is mounted at the top of the supports which doesnt do a good job of keeping them from bouncing around.
