If I was one of y'all crazies that ride in stupid cold weather, I would use them. So much better than trying to find a good set of gloves that come anywhere near the protection, and comfort.

along time ago it seems I had a battle on what panniers to buy for my 12 , tour tech won out , but sometimes I think the happy trails could have served just as well and cheaper. those look very nice indeed.

Can you tell me what model you ordered amd what "cuts" you chose. Do you know the liter size, or inside dimensions. I really need the same size as oem pannier

I really like that new style. My Happy Trails are still going strong even after 3 or 4 years of hard off road use on my KLR. I have used them on my 2013 Tenere since it was new. I replaced one of the seals because the laptop bag I was using abused and cut it over time. Other than that no leaks and no complaints.

Send them a few pics of your bike, should take them just a few minutes to put them on the site. With a price. Speaking of which, how much were they?

i have my first set I bought for my klr in 07. They have well over 100,000 miles and multiple drops, dents, digs, and decals. Still water proof usable and ready to go. The only real wear item is the latch, the turn Handle on it is worn and vibrates. I put black rtv on it to stop the rattle and just keep going. Good products for sure.

Let me look for the receip, I bought several items and don’t recall the pannier and rack price. I had mine set up with the top rack on the panniers with roto pac mount lugs.

Thanks, would love to see some details on how you made them fit tighter. 34.5" is ideal for lane-splitting.
