    Pannier protection pads

    Hi all.

    I've got a pair of scratched pannier (it fell over) covers that I'm happy to leave on all the time. I'll save the good ones for showing off. However I seem to recall seeing a Trophy with some rubber type patches/protector/mat type things.

    I'd like to stick some on my scratched panniers to cover them up a bit.

    Did I dream this or has anyone found some after market things?

    Thanks in advance.

    The one time sure fix forever is have someone that sprays in LineX bed liners on the sides of the case lids in whatever pattern you like and they will never be scratched again.  Tough stuff.  Did that on an R1200RT and complete protection for the side cases in the area they were likely to touch in a drop.  Now they can custom color it to any paint code with a sample.  My stepson and I had to beat a truck tailgate open with a hammer once to get it to release and you couldn't even tell where we hit it.

    Hi Isaac_f,

    Have a look at Halfrauds Halfords - They have self adhesive "Bodywork Protectors"
    in a few different variations, or even search eBay for the same !  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    I saw this recently too - think whoever did it cut their own protectors out of adhesive backed rubber sheet.   Can't recall if it was here or on the Facebook group that I saw it though...
    2015 TTSE.  It's blue.

    I'm thinking one of these options would work quite nicely on the panniers:

    https://www.amazon.com/runmade-Universal-Auto-Protection-Guard/dp/B0753DRGNR/
    https://www.amazon.com/Protector-Threshold-protection-waterproof-width5CM/dp/B07GCHXPTV/

    And these might work well up front by the turn signals:

    https://www.amazon.com/Guard-Protector-Carbon-Protection-Sticker/dp/B07MS7ZSCY/
    https://www.amazon.com/runmade-Universal-Auto-Protection-Guard/dp/B079YMVWCQ/
    https://www.amazon.com/ZYTC-Reflective-Anti-Scratch-Protection-Universal/dp/B07P7RQM4L/ (for the slower, blue colored bikes)

    I'm partial to the carbon fiber for my Phantom Black, but there are a lot of color options out there if you search....

    Schindawg- I'm wondering, do you think applying the blue anti-scratch guards to the blue bikes will help them go faster? I desperately want to be able to keep up with the black Trophies.

    Maybe if you put enough of them on, it would create an aerodynamic vortex that could make them a bit faster. I think about 25 or so on each side should do the trick. Let me know how it goes!
