Question Pannier options on the Storm

Hi, I know that this is something that has been talked about in several threads so the question is not which would you choose (well, not just that anyway).

I am looking to fit leather panniers to my Storm and before I give a hell of a lot of cash to my local dealer I am looking around and have found

Cs4 Click & Lock saddlebags

http://www.bagsfortriumph.com/index.html


Has anyone else used these? Are they any good? Anyone else got any alternative manufacturer for these? I do not want to leave them on the bike all of the time as I like the look, but I want to use something for long trips away.

Thanks for any info ....

Well, I went and bought them and for anyone interested here's my opinion of the CS4 panniers. These are really well put together bags, with strong stitching and good quality leather. The pannier liners are strong and it looks like the construction should keep their shape well. As for the locking mechanism this is really good quality. the mooting brackets fit perfectly and have a good finish and the locking quick release system seems strong and well made also.

They took no more than 15 mins to fit, mark up and mount the bags. They are well clear of the springs and sit well on the bike.

Off for a long ride tomorrow so we'll see how they fair after that.

Red_SE_1600, thanks for your input. It was much appreciated

I think we are going to need some pictures. It would be nice to see how the look.

Links to other forums are not acceptable on this forum. Period. No argument, no discussion. If you want to play here then follow the rules.

Apologies for those who want to discuss panniers. Please start/continue in another thread.

People from any forum, or from anywhere in internet land are welcome here.

They are not, however, allowed to advertise, or link to another site, nor should they be pm-ing our members in order to induce them to another site.

I've banned four people today from another forum who were doing just that. Others I have given infractions to.

You want to play here, then play nice.

BTW you thick twunts (you know who you are) the picture below is of Charlie Chaplin in his ANTI-Hitler movie - thanks for the sig picture. I'll use it from now on.
