Q What’s the best soft op­tion for my Euro blast?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I’m plan­ning a trip to Europe for a cou­ple of weeks soon and I would like to get some soft pan­niers for the trip. I have a Yamaha MT-09 Tracer. What are the best bags for me? Lee Fin­ney, Car­shal­ton

An­swered by Keith A Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles I al­ways rec­om­mend go­ing large with these sorts of bags as you can make them smaller, but you can run out of space with small bags quickly. The lat­est ver­sion of the well-proven Ox­ford range, the P60R, comes in sev­eral colours with fea­tures like heat­proof bases, and should also suit the lines of your bike.

The Ride-rec­om­mended Qbag pan­niers claim a per bag (ex­panded) 20-30-litre ca­pac­ity. I don’t think you’ll be want­ing for space with the Richa De­signer bags with their claimed 63 to 84-litre ca­pac­ity. The Kappa racer RA310 al­most dou­bles in size from 34 to 60 litres when opened up.

The bar­gain bags in this mar­ket are the 48-litre Buf­falo Sports Pan­niers.
