Aerostich Tank Panniers

Anyone ever had these on a Connie?

I've heard of some long-distance riders who use them across the pillion seat to hold water jugs, etc.

I wouldn't think I'd want any more weight up top on the gas tank....the Connie is top-heavy enough as is.....



Any thoughts/feedback would be welcome.


TIA,
John

I don't have them, I've never seen them on a Concours, I'd really think twice about putting tank panniers on a Concours for the reasons you state. BUT, I have a bag that sits over the pillion with depressions that sit over the factory saddle bags, looks kinda like a big "U" shaped bag. Not sure of the maker, it was designed with adventure bikes in mind but worked great on my Concours. I'm at work today but I can get you some more info on Wednesday.

I've seen some riders use ATV versions of these but I settle for my huge tank bag on trips .

if it's the same company I'm thinking of, way back in time I sent the guy a really nice drawing for a "custom" made bag I wanted...(all of the stuff they made was custom at that time), I suppose because he wanted to charge me like $400 for the kit, and I said no way, he went ahead and made them and sold them.. it was based on a big "U" shaped, deep sided system, that would fit on my C10, (and also fit the C14 easily). I saw some of his work, and it was reall good quality, urethane coated balistic nylon, strong straps and clips, waterproofed zips with cover flaps, velcro patches all over, to attach smaller bags and gear, real nice stuff.. just the price was to high for me, when I could procure the materials online for about $95.. then I found out my wife's mega Singer sewing machine would not sow the thickness' I wanted to sew.. ditched the project.

Do I remember Mark Haas had that setup on his C10? I rode with him a couple times, RWTW weekends. That setup was cavernous!  ;D

Sorry again, I didn't have my notes with me and posted the wrong company, it was "MAGS-BAGS" Gear bags, I found some info and looks like they stopped production after a crash in 2009. But, my research found many bags that were very similar like what MOB said, they are out there, and with ADV type riding exploding I'm confident you will find something you like. Good luck.
