custom small aluminium tank panniers?
my last year long trip i used aerostch front panniers along with my happy-trail rear alu ones. but they leak and are easy to break into and small. this next trip, RTW? im thinking of having some custom 5'X14'X12" alu panniers built to match my denaklis on back. theyd be h2o proof and difficult to steal stuff. why does everyone talk so negatively about them? if you have super huge metal boxes on back what does it matter alongside the tank, on my custom super macho crashbars im having welded up.? anyway theyll be a good place for stickers accumulated during my 3-5 year trip.
