After a couple of fires coursed by the heat from the silencer,i fitted ally boxs on my Tenere,i got the boxs secound hand and made my own frame to fit the Tenere, they are a little on the heavy side but they are waterproof and very secure. It gives you piece of mind knowing you can leave your bike some where, with out some one cutting open your bags and taking your gear and i've yet to have a box catch fire.but on the other hand soft luggage is lighter.....
Hope this was of help Skip
