    Pannier protection

    Has anyone found something to protect the panniers on the XR? I've used the TechSpec snake skin protectors on previous bikes but they don't make them for the XR. I found something on Amazon from Moto Screenies. It's a clear film but it says it's only for 2015-2018 models. Was there a change in the pannier style between 2018 and 2019?

    Gen 1 and Gen 2 have different panniers.

    All XR's 15 thru 19, (Gen-1), are essentially mechanically identical.

    Thanks, gents! I can’t seem to figure out how to get off my bike without scuffing a pannier.

    Consider the following: While continuing to hold your hand grips firmly the whole time...Put your side stand down; lean your bike onto the side stand; put your left foot on the left foot peg and stand up with just your left leg supporting your whole weight; lean your upper body forward at the same time bringing your right leg up so it points straight toward the rear of the bike; pivot on your left foot and swing your right leg across the bike and to the ground. If you've had any martial arts training, this is similar to a rear round house kick. This move is particularly helpful when you have tail bag that you need to clear. Even if you master this, I recommend you still put paint protection film on your panniers; you never know what your passenger might kick when they dismount.

    I already messed my panniers up completely, full of nicks and scratches due to my own carelessness... Fortunately They are a simple enough shape to wrap at home or get sprayed professionally for cheap if I want them looking good, not that I care that much for aesthetics of panniers anyway...

    I'll add to that... buy trousers that fit, with the crotch in the right place, not half way down your thighs like a rapper.. :164:  :008: :008: :008:
