Triumph official internal pannier bags
« on: March 16, 2013, 02:47:42 PM »
Has anyone bought a set of internal pannier bags? I would like a pair for when we go touring in Scotland in May but am concerned that they may not be very wide. When I had a CBF 1000, the bags that came with the panniers were very slim with a width of half of the pannier. Any info anyone has would be useful especially given they are an expensive item.

 Hello friends. I ordered the bags a couple of weeks ago and I am a little bit disappointed. The internal side panel of the plastic saddlebags of of our bikes are not flat. They have some "protuberances" that are not modeled in the bags. It means that even with the bags empty it becomes really dificult to close the saddle bags and, in any case, you are loosing some volume in the saddlebags.

Summarizing, from my poor point of view the bags are not properly designed. If I had known it before!!!!

On te other hand the bag for the top box is really goodg, it is big and mathes perfectly in the box.

I hope to have helped you somehow.

V,sss

They are brilliant, well made, just like two small suitecases, I kept mine over from my Sprint GT which uses the same panniers. Have used them fully packed one for each of us, not had a problem closing the lids and use a rucksack for our wash gear e.t.c. in the top box so at the end of a days riding put the rucksack on and carry the two side inner cases to your accommodation.

Thanks for your reponses guys. I just need to know how wide the bags are. They look as if they are 300mm wide (10 inches). Am I wrong?

The ones i have are 8" wide, 10 1/2" high, give or take 18 " long. More of a taper up on the front with a taper down at the back. Very ridged. Open like clam shell. Flat side pocket each side.

As an alternative, you might want to consider saddlebag liners from GIVI -- the smaller of the two sizes offered fit the TROPHY quite well ( roughly $80 the pair ).

I bought them a few days ago at the GIVI booth in Daytona; there, I learned that the GIVI top cases do not presently
fit the TROPHY, but I was encouraged to keep calling -- perhaps in a month or two ( or three or four or . . . ), GIVI
may have developed something. 

I am content to wait -- the GIVI top cases not only look good, but the option of supplemental brake lighting is too
good to pass up.
