Petrol tank bag/panniers

Looking for some bags/panniers to go on an 23l aceberis tank on my TT600RE - saw some at the HU meeting but forgot to write down the name of the company making them.

You saw them on mine and the wifes bikes, I have aerostich, wolfman and hein gericke, the hein gericke are not available any more. The wolfman and aerostich are both US made and may sit on your knees if you are tall. The panniers are great for easy access stuff like bug spray, snacks, spare gloves etc. Tank is 20 litre (XT is 23).

There is also (unfortunately) touratech ones. and I have to say that they are very good (that is cus they are not made by TT). Although TT sells them as bike specific from what i can see they are universal..

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine.
