Asking for opinions on hard sided panniers or soft bags for the TW. Need to outfit our two TW's for the wife and I. I was thinking maybe the aluminum panniers would help keep the bike off of her leg if she went over. She thinks they could hurt as much as help. What do fellow T-dubbers think? We would be carrying camping gear, weekends and longer. Was looking at the Happy Trails set up, kinda wide, but that is why I thought it might help prop the bike up.
