Hello everybody,
I'm Claudio from Mexico. I'm 38 yo and driving a 2017 XR.
I'm now looking for panniers, still wondering if I should go for the biggest ones available (like the SHAD SH58X + SH36) or a smaller one will be fine?
Usually I travel with my wife for weekends only.

Hi Claudio, if you travel with your wife I would suspect you need the biggest panniers available aswell as a a big top box and any other luggage option you can get your hands on !

As soon as I got my XR the first thing I did was take off the pannier carriers as in my opinion they compromised the look of the bike, I also only want panniers and top box on when going away with 2 up........and I get use of half a pannier  :084: I went for Givi panniers simply because of the quick fit carrier system when not using the panniers, they don’t even take 60 seconds to put on or take off and with very discreet mounting brackets, also went for the largest Givi  top box because I preferred the look of it compared with the BMW, it was convenient that the price was better for both options too. Coded the ignition key to the Givi top box barrel which wasnt too bad a job in the garage, havnt bothered with the panniers as don’t use them that much.
