And we are off today!

Today is the day! 

Just showing few  photos as we tried fitting our luggage on the bikes yesterday.

The TTR with the panniers:

Wish us good luck. Over 3 months of travel and open spaces ahead of us! This is gonna be awesome! :)


  1. Hi. What kind of panniers are those? Would you recommend them? I am looking for something like this for my upcoming CRF250L.

  2. Robert, they are Andy Strapz panniers. They are very good, definitely recommend them. Easy to fix to a frame with rock straps.
    They are very tough and waterproof ( up to a certain point!) . I have used them for all my trips for the last few years.

  3. Perfect. They look very good and the price is more or less reasonable. I am also considering some horseshoe-like luggage like Giantloop Coyote. Have you considered or tried something like this?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. No, I bought my panniers a while ago so no need for anything else. However, last year, when we rode in the Altai, our friend Anton had (Russian made) horse-shoe panniers like Giantloop, and it was very good on rough trails. He seems to like them.

  5. Thank you very much for the input. I like the Andy Strapz very much. I have some time till the bike arrives so I will give some more tought.
    Thanks again and best of luck with your future trips!
