Luggage that moves/The Whisky Thread
« on: March 31, 2014, 12:15:58 am »
Alright, I don't have anything at all that I can bitch about with my bike. I am currently a very happy owner. But I do have something that for some reason, and I really have no idea why it does...but it bothers me. Luggage that moves. Try as I might, I can see no possible reason whatsoever why Triumph decided to do this. It goes against every shred of common sense that I have. I spend a great deal of time and effort securing my loads to my bikes so that nothing will budge even a fraction of an inch. I spent a lot of money on luggage the clamps on so tight the bike can take a tumble off a cliff and the luggage will stay put.
I can find no other manufacturer that does this. So my simple question would be why? What rocket scientist Triumph engineer thought one day 'Hey, lets give the people something new. A load that swings back and forth while they push it through the twistys" And just to make it better, they did the same thing to their Adventure bikes, so now while riding at 50mph on washboard roads you can REALLY have things jump around back there.

Full disclosure, I really don't care. It doesn't bother me really at all, and it hasn't created any kind of problem for me. But if I stop for the evening some time, open the pannier, and find my whiskey bottle broken....well THEN I'll be truly pissed.
But...If I decide to buy the Tiger, theres not a chance in hell Im sticking these thing on that. Even if they throw em in free.

Ok, rant off my chest......carry on!

The moving panniers, and top box, reduced rear end oscillation at speed. Works on the Sprint ST and GT as well. There are videos on YouTube that demonstrate.

Don't worry about the grog mate all is safe. I carry grog in my luggage with no problems so far.

Cheers,

Scott

It ain't whiskey unless it's Macalans 25 year old single malt in my opinion!  :745:
