Pannier liners
« on: December 24, 2012, 06:56:17 PM »
Anyone else invested in the pukka item? I've always had cheap ones from eBay on previous bikes.
The Triumph ones are all branded up; very smart, with a shoulder strap and even plastic feet so the base doesn't soak up water whilst you've plonked one on the ground whilst dealing with the other one. One is plenty for a few nights away.
Only slight criticism is that the fabric is rigid (at the moment) and quite thick, so you do lose a bit of volume.

I'm a fan of pannier liners.
For years I resisted, worried about losing storage space (travelling with wife, so space at a premium). Having to carry panniers into hotels and getting legs, carpets etc covered in road dirt is not a great idea. Then I was given some liners for my (then) Kawasaki GTR1000.  Fairly cheap-looking, plasticky things which took up little or no space and were water resistant, and worked very well. I used them on the GTR and Trophy 1200 and only went to "bespoke" items when I was bought liners for my first R1200RT. Quality items which I still use.  I still have the Kawasaki ones lying about if they're any good to anyone ......

Hi,

I have the liners for the Triumph panniers which are the same as I had on my Sprint GT and they are brilliant. As you say they are rigid and I would not think that would change (don't want them to), they are proper suitcases. My wife and I use one each for up to eight days (at the moment) or so away and the overnight bits go in the top box in a rucksack. So when we stop for the night it's rucksack on and carry the two cases.

As far as volumes go we were given some advice a lot of years ago for touring on a bike........lay out on a bed what you think you need to take and halve it, it's worked for us.

I've orded the liners too.
Was told this would be a worthwhile investment.

Hi Guys,  Do the pannier liners fill both halves of the panniers? Is there still room once the liners are full to put something in the lid and then close the pannier?  I have used pannier liners in my other bike and they worked quite good when we were travelling.  Planning a big trip at the end of the year so looking at getting some liners.

Hi OZ

One of the few extra's that I've invested in  :028:
When full they do fill the pannier's with not a great deal of room left  :138: But in my opinion they are worth it.

Don't grow up, it's a trap...
