Here is my set up installed yesterday Mosko 25L and 35L  that I already had mounted on Outback Motortek racks love the bags but thinking I'll be looking for other racks wish the right ride was tighter to the bike think you could trim at least 2 inches off and still have plenty of clearance. 

not really happy with how high they are as well, think they could be a 2-4 inches lower cant really lower them on the racks because of the way they mount. 

any one have a offset rack system could you post some pictures, if i cant find any thing else that's  better  I may have to break out the grinder and welder.

I think that a high exhaust would allow the panier racks to be much closer to the bike.

I have the OM tail rack but there is no way I am getting OM panier racks, or any other for that mater since they all make the bike as large as a bus. On the plus side, it's going to be easier to pick up with a wide behind.

... crazy idea ... SherpaX, trailtail or similar trailer? ... (just saying)

Here's my Mosko R40 setup that I'm planning on putting on the T700.  Anyone have pictures of the R40 on your bike using the Adventure Spec side panels?

The SherpaX SuperSized trailer is sweet! I have it myself and use the 35 gallon tote. Can be setup with a 24 or 48 gallon tote as well. Just wish he’d get a hitch for the T7 already. 🙄 I tow it behind my WRR with ease.

S W Motech racks and bags are too wide for me.  This is a picture of a friend’s bike.

I plan on running a good sized soft tank and tail bag....no side cases.

Magadans fitted. I could get all my camping gear in with out loading it on the seat creating up top weight, definitely have a another set, they are soft canvas so very easy to roll the top with pockets front and rear for cooking fuel and water bottles.

I have some magadan panniers that I haven't really used much yet, tried them briefly on my Africa Twin but never really got a tidy solution to using them neatly.. Lots of strapping and looked a bit saggy and baggy when empty and lots of loose strap end to try and tuck in.. Have you used them for daily commuting when they are ofter empty or half full?

Yeh empty they gonna flop around but normally i double back a strap on the bottom that pulls them up and supports the bottom really well, they take alot of kit without loading stuff on he seat so keeps weight lower down

Impressed with the stock mono seat rack myself.  Beyond its armor all slipperiness, which was simply solved with some double sided gorilla tape & a couple misfit sander belts. 

  There's extra trunk space & a rubber strap under this unit  too. Any racks that mount over the rear seat must come off before the seats can.  No thanks. 

   The enduristan or mosko moto rackless systems look like the absolute winners as far as saddlebags go.

Oh yeah, I think they are excellent if you are lucky enough to be on a proper tour when they are constantly loaded, but I'm not lucky, I mostly commute and pop out for a quick blast.

Curious to see how well this mounts on the T7. Seems to be the best rackless system available. (Of course the most$$ too) Modular & not too large. Their R80 seems a tad too much for the tenere.

I have used Magadan panniers on a number of european trips and found them to very versatile and easy to use.

I use a 1" strap through the slots in the sides of the front and rear pockets and round the back of the pannier support frame to keep the bags tight to the bike whether full or empty.

Does anyone know if the hepco and becker mini rack is compatible with the T7 rally tail tidy? I don't especially want a rear rack but it may be useful for a bit more luggage room at the rear as well as an anchor point for the rear straps of a giant loop great basin. I like that it's quite light and doesn't have any side rails to get in the way..

Nice. I have touratech pannier frames on my Africa Twin and really like the ortlieb/touratech endurance click roll top panniers, they are very light, quick to fit and remove, roll up to almost nothing when empty and are good when partially loaded.

using  the burmot rear rack and  ad spec  pannier racks        the bags   top hook to the burmot lifting rails and bottom to the  adv spec racks     ...slightly higher and furtherback than optimun   but still  i think putting the weight    lower than most loop type  set ups       and certainly narrower than most out there  ...need must i alreardy had the wolfmans  ..set up seems to work ok  clears the exhaust with no sheild   ..secure enough and no paint rub issues   ....it will do for me i think   seems good so far      ..i do find that lifting handle really  usful and will be   handy   i think in a picking up situation     .....  best thing is the bike is  pretty much as narrow as you will get   ..theres no right and wrong    but its a option    that works ok for me
