Question Panniers for KLR650

Hello,
I am currently outfitting my 2009 KLR650 for long distance travel. Doing Arizona backroads trips currently. Planning for trip Tucson to Alaska. After that crossing Canada.
Need advice on buying economical but high quality aluminum panniers. I have seen many advertised and want to make the best choice.
Thanks,
DanielJ
Did a nice loop ride yesterday... Redington Road to Cascabel Road and back to Tucson on Interstate 10

I had "Happy-Trail" Canyon Cut panniers on my 97 KLR 650. Fantastic system.

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.
