Australian Made, soft luggage support frame V-Strom 1000 (2014+)
Made by a local craftsman just for us, designed in-house.
These frames are intended to be basic and lightweight supports for our saddle bags.
As the weight of the bags is carried on the seat we only require the frames to stop the panniers flapping about or contacting the exhausts.
You'll see all sorts of comments out there on the internet. A common comment is that our frames are too lightweight. Our approach is to make a frame that can take minor tumbles, be straightened with a pair of hands and a size nine after bigger ones, repaired in a redneck's shed and protect the subframe of the bike by being somewhat "sacrificial". Andy Strapz pannier support sets weigh in the region of 4.4 lbs so we ain't making crash bars for the rear.
Supplied with all fittings and spacers required.
