Product Description


These tough, semi-rigid containers keep your load low and secure. Extremely handy for day-to-day use with or without a tank bag, they fit a variety of unfaired motorcycles. Detailed for a sleek look and functional design, and a great value for the price. Constructed of tough, water resistant urethane coated 1000 Denier Cordura nylon with an adjustable mounting system: two padded, two-inch wide, hook & loop closed webbing straps plus two adjustable bungee shock cords. Hook & loop attached neoprene tank pads protect your paint and eliminate slippage. Removable plastic inserts shape and define both of the bags. The panniers also feature two pockets along the rear panels for small items like pencils and a tire gage, several 1" web straps for attaching additional items, and 3M Scotchlite reflective material on the front and outside panels. Specify Black or Hi-Viz. Standard (12"×9"×5", 8.8 Liter, each) or Competition (12"×7.5"×4.5", 6.6 Liter, each). USA. Made in USA

Very good productReview by ScootersNotBombs
I bought these panniers last fall. I ride an '09 F650GS. I used these bags on a 7000 mile cross country trip over the summer. All of my rain gear, a water bottle in the right side, my wool pants, extra warm layers, and a water bottle in the left. These are very durable, and easy to put on. I attached some zip ties to the frame of my bike to attach the elastic straps. My tankbag fits over the top, and keeps the bags from moving. The outside pockets were very useful for keeping a pencil, loose forgotten tent stakes, and a crushed can for kickstand support :)
I wish they were waterproof, but nothing a lightweight drybag or trash bag couldn't fix. The Hi-Viz yellow also made my advancing motorcycle very easy to see! (a 6 pack of, um root beer, fits perfectly in eack pannier:) (Posted on 11/6/09)

I have been using these on many bikes from fully faired (with straps running under the passenger seat and the bags resting on the passenger foot pegs) to un-faired bikes as designed. About twice a year I soak them in CampDry or some other type spray on treatment and never have a drop of water inside my bags. I keep my rain gloves and booties in one side and food and drinks on the other. They are a permanent fixture on my bike GS Adv. Aerostich will even extend the straps for a small cost for big behemoth gas tanked bikes. They work Great! (Posted on 1/20/09)

I hope I don't wind up posting this twice (the directions are bit sparse).

I just got back from a 2,500 mile trip on my '01 Tiger with the tank panniers. They were easy to mount (modified a few of the suggestions that came in the package) and remained quite stable. The added luggage space in a convenient spot was very helpful.

On really hot days I could have used more wind on my legs but that was a trade-off I knew I was making. I wish they were waterproof but knew they were not.

Ride safe!

I bought a set of the tank panniers a few years back to compliment the system bags and givi back bag for my BMW R1100R and absolutely love them. Great for packing drinks with a little ice packed in with them. Easy access to drinks with minimal effort from their position near the tank. Takes less than a minute to drape them over my tank and secure the bungee connectors near the bottom. By virtue of their position they also offer a little additional wind protection for my legs since my bike is unfaired which is great for long distance riding. (Posted on 8/25/08)

I purchased a set of these tank panniers several years ago for my R90/6.

I use them to hold a single burner Coleman stove, fuel bottle, two bottles of water and my cook set.

They work great, I just love them, in addition in really cold weather they block the wind nicely.

The best part about them? According to my kids, the Hi Viz panniers make my bike so ugly that I don't have to worry about anuone stealing my bike, and they're large enoug for people to leave donations in for a new, non ugly bike. (Posted on 5/29/07)

From the start we were always afraid to tell our customers these were sized specifically for carrying two one gallon cans of gasoline, because we thought recommending this would be dangerous, so they were never presented this way in any Aerostich catalog. We never ended up using them for that ourselves. They were introduced in 1988, because back then nobody else made anything like them, and we did think someday we occasionally might want to be able to carry some extra gas.

Sales were low at first but later they became more popular and others began making similar ones. One company even made an exact ‘reverse engineered’ copy after taking the pattern from one of ours. What made this especially funny was that company not only stole the design stitch-for-stich, but also lifted the product description word-for-word from our catalog directly to theirs.

Today there are lots of different tank pannier choices, but these remain popular. Their simplicity, many functional details, high quality and general versatility are why. People have hauled just about everything in them, all over the world. They fit a lot of different bikes well, and have become a minor classic.
