    Can anyone recommend a set of panniers to fit?

    Often away with friends for some weekend B-road blasting in the Highlands. Can anyone recommend a set of panniers that fit nicely?

    my wife is starting to commute on her Hawk to work...and she doesn't like bungee-ing the stuff to the back too much...I am looking to get her a Ventura rack system for her to be able to load her stuff in an go....I have one on my bike and it is stable as hell and awesomely simple!...for more details...you can look here http://www.ventura-bike.com/ for their international site and in the USA it is http://www.cycleventure.com/products/products.htm

      Yeah, I love my Ventura rack, too. It wasn't cheap, together the two components ran about $140, but it's way, WAY better than trying to bungee stuff to the rear of the bike. There's nothing back there to keep it from sliding around, which means you have to bungee it down so tight that you end up scratching/scuffing the rear cowl.

      As for side panniers, perhaps you could weld something onto the Ventura side bars? My Dad did something very similar on his W650 with his Ventura rack.
