I don't have photos of it, but I sometimes use two little "pannier bags", too! They originally were front fork tool bags! Big enough for short tours. The most difficult thing was to find some without an Eagle or V-motor on it!
Here are two examples:
Both cost 9.95 Euro each, so very cheap! You should look for motorcycle shops in NZ (as our shops surely have no branch offices in NZ) and watch what they offer. Maybe the bags are originally meant to be used for something different (like my bags) - but if it fits ands looks good, who cares?!
As for the back which is at the side of my Estrella,Kawasaki is native. If there is a store of Kawasaki in Australia,it may be possible to buy. Because the back isn`t so big,too much,a thing isn`t stored.
sorry for my impetuous. rather unrelated posting. It appears that the forum is a bit upside-down every now and then - nothing to do with the down-unders, even though it popped up in your thread.
This strange posting was meant to appear in a thread which was removed just "seconds" before I posted my comments. For some mysterious softweary reasons it then apparently spent a few days looking for a cosy place to stay. Thanks Claire, for offering it your hospitality.
By the way, it was just an attempt to make a small joke - no meaning at all out of its context, which has vanished since. Vanitas-vanitatem (if I remember it right). U.
When you get a message from the Far East, what do you expect in NZ - a letter from Argentina ??? Or would this be Middle East and the Far East would be located - same as the Far West - in South Africa ??? The Mid-West logically being Australia...
Or do you still use London/Whitehall/frontentrance as the center of the Universe, i.e. Empire ??
now I know! Well your browser may delete the cookies after some time. So, you won't automatically get logged in.
