do I need one of those brackets to keep the bags off the rear wheel or might I not need that? also, has anyone combined the smaller triangular bags with the regular ones? I'm thinking about maximum storage capability. Should I consider saddlebags that are easilly removable like in case you have to leave your bike but you have your saddlebags full with valuables?

Hi jj, I suppose a lot depends on what style and which manufacturers panniers you use. Many years ago I borrowed some from a friend for a long trip that were the throw over type, they just had a buckle strap underneath that secured them to the bottom of each rear shock. Never needed any stays and they lifted off very easy but I can't for the life of me remember what brand they were. I went all over Wales without a problem (the country, not the swimmy things :lol: ).

thanks. I'm looking for brown detachable ones you can lock wide enough to hold a gallon of milk. I suppose I can try some out and if they need the "stays" then I'll get them.

I have those bags you see in the pics and it works ok on my european CB650.

It's from a chain of store called Biltema (car theme) here in Sweden, but i know those saddle bags is made outside Sweden.

my question is how to install them under the seat? it seems impossible without heavy modification. it would be perfect installed under the seat cushion. all nice though. I just gotta secure them better. they have rings on the inner outside I guess your could put cable through to lock them to your bike. Might do that
