The annual trip to Spain is on again for March First time on the RSVR. Enjoyment control (wife) said she would get me the appropriate luggage for Xmas. What do I get chaps need your help. I will be travelling for 10 days but always travel light, (see last years story on BrianR tripTail pack is preferred cant use back pack (the race position on the bike is gonna kill me anyway)
Thanks in advance

Pity you don't like back packs. I used a baglux tank bag and a 40l rucksack. It was a goodun, cost about £45 quid but the straps were thick and very padded. I didn't feel a thing for long periods. I had enough for a long weekend and clubbing every night - plus all my "being a tart" bits like after shaves and cleanser, toner, moisturiser etc and a different pair of shoes/trainers every day.

Hi Brian,
I have a '99 Mille and during the summer I traveled with my girlfriend within Greece!!! It wasn't the most pleasent jurney but the old girl managed to do it without any problems. Anyway I use oxford's Sports Panniers,I have them for almost three years now and I am very happy with them. The quality is good,their capacity is good (about 100lt,I think) and they come in black!!! If you need anything more that I can tell you please ask me...

Regards Nitro

I just did 11 days and almost 6000 km on my RSV. I had a modified Ventura Tankbag (Which I attached 4 suction cups to the bottom) which worked perfectly, and a Ventura Pack rack and slip-on Ventura bag for the rack. Heaps of room and still able to comfortably do 230+kph with the luggage on, and that wouldnt be so easy with paniers.
