Oh let me add a 4th crapola factor- the so-called 'rain covers'you speak of.. Ahem...they cover most of the panniers EXCEPT for the inside of the panniers.. you know, the tire side which is like a fire hose throwing water into the panniers. No I'm sorry my friend, these suck big time. On the other hand, I am completely ecstatic over the bike itself. Without a question the best steed I ever rode.
The waterproof covers do have a use. Put them over the bags when not in use in your garage on the shelf. No dust:)

I just need a luggage bracket. I don't need the rack. I can't find where--or even if I can at all--to buy just a bracket for a luggage rack.

Hi guys I live in the uk and want to tour next year on my new r3 is the pannier system worth the considerable expense or are there any alternatives ? Tia.
Just spoke to Hepco and Becket
They make a nice system and its 1/2 price of the triumoh system
Assuming its also bigger and better quality

I almost ordered them, but went a different route.
Used factory rack and brackets and made a wider plate for it. Now I can fit 80lt tail bag on top
