Affordable ALU panniers
For my next trip, I bought some ARO aluminum panniers for the BMW. The have more volume, are stonger (2 mm thick aluminum !) and easier to load.then the original BMW panniers. Beside that, they look good and with a price of € 595,- including the mountingsystem and pannierrack, they are cheaper then the Touratech panniers.
They are made in the Netherlands by a company called ARO (http://www.arokoffers.nl/en/home
) and I bought them via a local bikeshop, Motorservice Ossendrecht (http://www.motor-service.nl/
The only problem is that my big BMW touring topbox does not fit anymore so we phoned, to the company that made the panniers, for a solution and they are working on it. (to be continued)
