T120 Saddle Bags

Looking for saddle bag recommendations for my 2017 T120 Black. I just finished a 1800 mile trip using a Keurig multi bag set up to haul gear. I found the main 2.0 bag mounted to the seat restricted any repositioning on the seat which became very tiresome. What would be a good bag set up and a support that could be easily installed and removed for use a couple times a year?

A lot of guys like the SW-Motech Legend bags. Probably more bang for the buck than the Triumph wax cotton panniers.

My search is over. Burly Brand and Triumph pannier supports. I am having the supports powder coated.

Yeah, the Burly Brand bags really go well with a Bonneville. Great classic look and very good quality. And very good pricing.

Hi T-595 - Those saddlebags look really good. I have been eyeing the Burly’s myself but unsure if they will fit a Scrambler. Do you happen to have a part number for the triumph pannier supports you used? I wanted to check if they will fit a scrambler (left side)

Cheers!

I think that would look great on a matt green scrambler.

I just went with a set of Stansport Saddle Bags. You can get them on Amazon for $24.99 (they come in black also, but about $10.00 more). I have the standard chrome Triumph saddlebag supports.

I seriously considered the Burly bags, but Burly does not make a bracket that fits the T120. You can get the saddlebag style similar to the Stansport Saddle bags. The Burly ones are much nicer - but they are around $400.00. Before I spend $400.00 or more for a set of saddle bags, I'm going to wait and see what comes out for the T120. I'll just get by with the Stansports for now.
