Probably a fot and life saver bag.
We are 2 ups, recently drove around in Iraq. Traffic is immense. Early in the morning we ride nice and easy in our lane. From the nowhere came a minivan, high speed wanted to use the exit lane just in front of us. He hit us from the rear and side. Actually you could feel how the bags damped the impact, and softened it down. Somehow I managed to keep the bike upright, and stopped safely.
Another occasion happened in Oman, we laid down the bike on a sand dune. My foot under the bag, and wife on the top of everything. My foot was not crushed.( zoom on the picture you can clearly see the impact)
THANK YOU Lone Rider for these excellent products!!
Love these! The flexibility and the strength is amazing! We went through the Sahara and the High Atlas off-roading and the ease of the inner bags traveling was amazing!
This review is not just for the Moto Bags, but also the 6L bag, the 30L Duffell, the Water Bottle Holder & the locks!
I am glad I did my homework on which bags I was going to put on my 23 GS1250. Lone Rider products, I'm talking about motor bags and all the other accessories, are by far the most versatile, best built quality products on the market for any dual sport motorcycle.
The thought & engineering of these products shows in the craftsmanship and the ability to attach any of the products to another, with the customization of well thought out straps, molles and loops.
I'm proud to be seen with these attached to my GS and get nothing but compliments on the products. Once you start playing (so to speak) with the bags, both inside & out, then and only then do you realize the long and grueling process that went into them to make them the products they are!!
Thank You Lone Rider!!!
Excellent Product. Premium construction and easy application. Durable and well made.
Perfect, easy to install
Good waterproof quality
Perfect.. easy to install
Bags are exactly what we were looking for, having difficulty getting the key to lock but I need to see if some adjustment is necessary. Plenty of room for 2 up storage for an extended trip. They look very very sharp on our triple black GSA.
Great quality and easy to install, this is my second set of bags and looking forward to increase my LoneRider collection
Good quality bags, though they are prone to getting caught on things and if you don't have your bag set up perfectly for your rack, they may bend the mounting plate, though it is easy enough to bend back.
Also, it would be nice to see spare fasteners and such come with the bags for install.
It was supposed to fit 2022 GSA right out of the box but needed a lot of adjustments. Then it wouldn't lock. After looking closely, the weld on the GSA frame needed filed down so latch would close all the way. The 38 l bag fits very solid on the frame. This 31 l has a lot of wiggle once mounted and locked. I don't know how to correct that.
Great product excellent quality thanks
Great product strongly recommended thanks to lone rider
Good quality. Very hard to clamp and lock on stock 2022 bmw GSA racks…once I figured out to adjust locks they worked..also figured out to adjust top clasp so they closed to put a lock on…there should be much better instructions…had to research on YouTube to get it all together….certainly not an easy attachment….all working now..
Super valise, qualité au top, kit reçu très généreux avec outillage et visserie. Petit gift avec le tout, vraiment content.
Envoie rapide et fiable.
Compatible avec Yamaha tenere World Rai 2022.
One of the best bags I have seen really liked them thanks to loneriders
Great packaging, really remarkable quality, really good online service. Can't wait to try them off road
Der erste Triumph Street Scrambler mit LR MotoBags. Passen perfekt und von höchster Qualität. Dagegen sind andere Hersteller nur Deko Artikel (meine Meinung) ;)
The best bags I ever have
Love these Bags! All the benefits of a hardcase with the safety of a soft! Also LoneRider customer service is Excellent. Thanks
The bags and the rest of the other products was so nice and distinctive shape, as well as their high quality. Dealing with lone rider was smooth, and they responded to every email I sent, and the delivery was very fast ,, thanks lone rider ,, I hope to receive a gift ☺️
It’s only the best in market
Lone rider Bags
Perfect combination with my R1200GSA
The metal fitting that closes and locks the lid is too tight, so it's hard to match when the luggage is small, so it's difficult to lock the padlock. I think it's better to have a little more clearance.
Hello it’s Marc from Montreal, I just finished my install of my MotoBags, fits like a glove on my Triumph Tiger Rally 900 2020. Beautiful product, thank you very much for your support and install vid!
One of the best in market
If u looking for good and best
Just have ( Lone Rider )
One of the best in market
Only the comment on it the bracket and holder need to adjust
To be fine
Très bon produit
C'est un bon produit sauf la fermeture reste à améliorer pour le reste rien à dire.
The Lone Rider Motobags have been a dream realized for me.
My previous luggage setup was an entry level rackless system. It served its purpose, but I was tired of constantly struggling to pack and always being the last one in the group to hit the road, on top of the frustration of being cluttered and unorganized. I was ready for the investment into a premium luggage system. Not only does Lone Rider offer top of the line materials and craftsmanship in their products, they offer the peace of mind in knowing that when you arrive to camp, it'll be a joy to simply grab the inner bags and unpack, while the rest of your group hopes their belongings didn't get beat up too bad inside their soft luggage. These bags are truly a godsend, and an absolute must have for not only someone who values the convenience of hard luggage and the safety of soft bags, but someone who also values organization. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to invest in a premium adventure travel luggage system.
On a side note, there are no pannier rack options that the QRS will work with the Suzuki DR650 (latch is too big for the clearance). Luckily, Lone Rider included the fixed system so I could enjoy the bags until I have time to engineer and weld some 18mm tubing together to make the QRS work. Would love to see the development of multiple latch options that can fit a wider variety of tube sizes in the future. Don't mind the Mosko bag in my included picture, my Ranger Tank Bag Mini is on the way.
Product quality and function serve as promised. I am a new owner and am waiting to see how they hold up against the desert climate here in Las Vegas NV. That said, the customer service is excellent. I had a few hiccups when ordering because I chose two 38L bags as oppposed to a 38 and 31L - so the side on the muffler, didn't fit. Anna in customer service squared me away and I had my replacement in hand and installed before long. They look great!
Hey there, I received and mounted my Moto bags! After moving the Quick releases the bags fit perfectly on my Unit Garage pannier racks! Loving the quality and ease of removal! Heading to Arizona in a week to complete a full test before my longer trip to Mexico! Cheers!
Great fit, sturdy and roomy
This is a quick update on my previous review; The metal closure latches are super easy to close now that I have figured it out better. If you Roll the top 3 times (vs 2 in one of the videos) and tuck it into the latch on the lower closure, it almost auto lines up and closes easy and secure. I am also liking the lock better, the smooth end makes it easy to slip into the molly loops to secure when open and don't want another key to keep track of. So, love everything about the bags! Am wishing there was a way to secure the inner bag top to the main bag so in dry weather it would be like just opening one bag.
It took much longer to adjust the plate to the frame than anticipated
I actually needed to move the plastic guides out of the holes in to the slides
And to take the screws out of the bags to detach from the plate takes much longer than advertised
Not impressed at all
However the bag seems strong and I need to break it in to get the stiffness out
Il sont étanches il absorbe les choques quand la moto tombe est je peux ramener tout l’équipement que j’aurais besoin, c’est vraiment génial et je peu les détacher facilement
J’ai plus peur quant la moto tombe il la protège contre les choques brusques et il m’aide à ramener tout mes équipements et la chose meilleure il sont étanches
Moto bags were shipped promptly and fit my GS rack perfectly. They are quality construction and look great.
One of the best pannier for BMW
OR OTHER ADVENTURE BIKES
Great item overall, I had a few observations witch I explained in my other review,
But I do believe this is one of the best soft bags in the market since their installation brackets make very easy to install/remove the bags when needed. I do use this feature very often since I like to ride my motorcycle on my way to work and during those days I like to remove everything from the bike, during the rides/weekends I do install the bags.
Very good set of bag, really useful, durable, rigid enough to maintain the shape even when riding at 80mph.
The only observation I has is that even that I bought the specific set for my motorcycle I did struggle with a couple things:
A- Installing both bags was a little challenging since I had to force them down to be able to close the locking mechanism.
B- The plaques to lock the bags with a lock (could be the included one or any other, I did used the included one) have a mechanism to align the holes of both plaques, how ever I realize that these ones are not wide enough or properly machined so you do not have any room for in proper alignment. I did ended up using the length of the lock arm to lock the bag.
C- The screws that hold one of the plaques that help to lock the closed bags came loose and I almost loose one of the plaques. Short term solution during the ride where of course the use of zip ties, when I got home from the ride, the bags comes with extra screws, I did installed them to the plaque back again but this time I did use loctite blue to fix in place the screws and give them resistance to vibrations, meaning prevent this problem of happening again (hopefully).
Great fixation system and extremely well built overall. Quite some work to assemble and fit but the installation/adjust video on the LoneRider Youtube channel is quite thorough. I personally like theses way better than hardcase, semi-rigid luggage are my new favorites for the function, safety and forgiveness off road!
Installation instruction video was very helpful, take a good amount of time to assembler but it really worth it. Really like that the bags are easy and quick to unmount and mount on the rack. Built quality and materials of what the bags are made from feel very tough. I won't go back to hardcase now that I've uses thoses semi-rigid bags.
The bags are really well made. I love the fact that they are secure with the locks provided and have a ton of space for gear. Customer service is TOP NOTCH and they respond very quickly. I'm happy with my purchase and will definitely buy more merchandise from Lone Rider.
Had to adjust the bags, I am using Touratech Rag. There is enough space to put in all your stuff for vacation.
I really liked it. It protects my gear from rain and dirt and keeps it dry and safe
This Motobags are great. Even when dropping the bike on them. There‘s no Damage on the Bike. I like a lot more than aluminium panniers. Highly recommend to everybody that travels with his bike on and offroad.
Love the bags. Exactly as advertised and so much cheaper than hard cases. They look really great on on F850 GSA. Highly functional and I love how I can add components to it to fit my needs
I purchased the 31 and 38-liter pair of Lone Rider semi-rigid motorcycle bags with a Touratech pannier rack for my Tiger 900 Rally Pro. My first trip was a 5,400-mile tour of the western United States including the Pacific Coast Highway from Santa Monica to Seattle, plus Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming and Arizona.
The bags were as advertised — strong, durable, roomy, waterproof, secure and good looking to boot. I would recommend them to adventure riders who travel long distances on varied terrain and weather conditions.
I was a bit disappointed (and surprised) by the weight of the bags when empty. Sometimes it seemed like the bags weighed as much as the things I put in them. That said, however, they travelled well on the racks on my bike and did not seem to affect the handling all that much.
As I said, I would recommend these bags for their quality construction, durability, safety and security.
A hassle making them fit. They are not ready to go out of the box. Not a big deal but was time consuming to break them all down and put back together correctly. I also feel they are bit of a hassle to use as opposed to a metal bag but again that’s not a negative on lone rider just a byproduct of the design of any soft bag. These in my opinion could lose a couple bucks on the cost.
Now as for function they are fine and will probably last me a good long time.
J'arrive d'un premier voyage d'une semaine en Gaspésie (Quebec) avec mon kit complet de Lone Rider et j'ai vite compris que j'avais fait le bon choix en les achetant. Top qualité, étanche et très fonctionnel, j'adore.
I am very pleased with the quality of these bags, and although I have not yet had the opportunity to take a road trip and really put them to use I do intend to purchase more of the smaller internal bags in the near future . Thanks for a great product. I am very happy with this purchase.
Good outlook design
Love these bags.
Excellent quality and look fantastic
Die Taschen passen perfekt auf meine Bmw R1200 GS LC Adventure….⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Support ist auch TOP!
Great bags. World class quality. The semi-rigid design makes it perfect for packing all our gear while keeping me safe in an event of a crash. Beyond satisfied with the looks as well. Highly recommended!
Purchased my LoneRider Motobags a few weeks ago (2x31L), and just finished a 10-day, 4200 km road trip, incl. a few sections of each of the WABDR and the IDBDR. They're awesome!
Perfect bit of kit. They work great, and yes, bent rather than breaking my leg/ankle when I got my foot in the wrong place while flailing my way through a turn on loose gravel! More importantly, they're clearly bombproof as advertised. Put 'em on the bike and go think about something else. They look awesome on the GS too!
Finally: lots of spare bolts, brackets, nylon washers, cool ratchet wrench, neck tube, stickers, red key chain... I'd buy 'em again just for the accessory pack!
Great to travel with
Easy to install and secure to the bike. Best panniers available on the market. Quality and functionality are the absolute best.
Valises parfaites pour ma Tiger, très résistantes, d'excellente qualité et très esthétiques.
muy buen producto, buena calidad y super practico, muy conforme con la compra, no tengo fotos por el momento montadas en mi moto
Works as advertised on website, and in the videos.
I would gladly buy again, were I so fortunate as to be able to own two adventure bikes.
Bags mounted easy on my 2022 1250GSA; just had to take the little reflectors off the factory luggage frame.
I spent way too much time researching a set of bags for my Pan America. These hit all the marks as I decided not to go with rigid panniers.
I bought them on a Black Friday sale and feel it was a great value. It took several months to fill the entire order due to supply chain issues.
Was it worth the wait? Hell yeah!!
These take some practice learning how to use them. So does every other piece of gear. Once I was comfortable with the open close procedure, it was easy. Took some time to adjust to my Touratech racks, but, well worth it. I am glad I had to adjust the backing plate. It made me more comfortable with how the system worked.
Capacity is great. The inside is easy to pull gear in and out. The construction and materials are far superior to any other soft side bags I have used.
The videos on the website help greatly when making adjustments and the initial set up.
Total winner in my book.
Great motobags with really high quality. I had to adjust the right bag because I do not need the spacer. But from description and Youtube it is no problem to do this.
Bag is really big and I get all stuff for my journey in it
The quality of the bags is really amazing. And it looks good on the bike. However it was a bit of struggle to fit the bags on my BMW1250GS's OEM racks. I couldn't do it so I had BMW technicians sort it out. They also had to keep the bike for two days to make it fit perfectly. The problem was that the latch were not closing properly. Even after filing the weld bumps on the racks, it's still bit of a struggle to open and close the latch. I wish it wasn't so difficult. It cost me extra money to have the bag fit the racks. But yet, I love the product.
Die Motobags ist spitze. Sehen super aus und passen zur Tiger.
It is both light, aesthetic and useful.
compartir con mi familia la comodidad y seguridad que brindan las maletas no tiene precio!!! gracias!!
gran capacidad de transportación, practicas, ligeras y a la vista una maravilla!!! excelente servicio al cliente!!! les doy un 10!!!
I bought the aluminum panniers originally because I wanted something to fit on my stock racks and didn’t want to add an adapter plate. I kept the aluminum top case for my helmet. The Motobags are huge and fit right on the BMW R1250GSA racks. Love the look and features of the Motobags not to mention I’m not banging my knee on the aluminum panniers any more. Great job Lone Rider.
I have all ready my moto bags and my budy just recived there new moto bags and i just have my crash bags all the products are awsome
They look cool, they seem to be very tough, but I really DO NOT like the padlock shackles, which are next to impossible to get aligned so that the padlock can be used. The shackles (upper with tab, lower with keyhole slot) work by mating together via a keyhole slot and tab. To make that happen, the two pieces must be perfectly parallel, otherwise, you will struggle to get them mated, and then when you do get them mated, to separate the two is extremely difficult and frustrating. I've gotten to the point that I simply don't use them because they make the bags so difficult to enter. All other aspects of the bags nice, but opening and closing the bags should be easy, and struggling with the shackles is anything but easy. My analogy is something like buying a really nice car, but you can't get the door closed, and when you do, you can't the door back open again! Maybe I'm missing something which makes the shackles easier to use?
Incredible bags, very spacious.
7,250 km. through the Alps and 11 countries in rain and dust would have been awkward without these bags.Absolutely amazing!
Hamid / Stockholm-Sweden
Everything is perfect. I like this bag.
Instruction clear. Modified both for my 2022 Tiger 900.
All ready to head out for a 8700km trip into the Canadian wilderness.
Mamadou Mansour S.
very nice jadore ces sacs
Pretty solidly constructed bags. They have done great so far.
I purchased both panniers for my Africa Twin. Couldn’t be more happy with them. I have more space then I need now. The muffler side bag comes with a spacer on it. Which wasn’t required for my bike. Once I sorted that out it was smooth sailing. I was so happy with the bags I purchased the front 6L bags, as well as the handle bar bag.
If anyone out there is on the fence of hard bags or soft, and what brand should I purchase. Well friends your search ends here! These are so superior to anything I have ever owned, and I have owned just about all of them out there. Build quality is amazing, ease of use incredible, and they look fantastic. Thank you Lonerider for going above and beyond making such a great set of bags.
Great service and great product! I would highly recommend over the stock BMW side cases as this is a much better option.
Nach unserer Reise durch Slovenien und dem Friaul bin ich sehr zufrieden mit dem Lone Rider Gepäcksystem.
Weder Wasser noch Staub fand den Weg ins Gepäck, obwohl wir Starkregen und Hagel abbekamen und staubige Kammstrassen befuhren.
Super sind die Innentaschen, so bleibt das Zelt trocken und sauber.
auch die Mini Bags sind absolut Wasserdicht.
Ich bin sehr happy damit, das Thema Gepäcksystem ist somit abgeschlossen.
Die Dinger halten ewig und sind ihren Preis wert.
Always a good and save ride!
When I received my Moto Bags I was very impressed by the heavy duty quality of the bags. But that is 'look and feel' only. Actual proof of quality came a short while later.... I took them with my GSA to Scotland and on my first day took a fall with my bike, for the first time in about half a million kilometers. Doing about 40km/h in a sharp bend of the road in a split second I wandered off the asphalt, into loose stones, and the bike fell over and skidded along the road for about 10 meters, turning 180 degrees while skidding. My GSA rested on the crashbars around the cylinder and on my right MotoBag. The crashbar was heavely scratched, but not so the Motobag: just a few scuffs, even though it had slid over the tarmac for the entire sliding distance! Same as my riding gear. so I dusted of, and with the help of my friends lifted the bike - and continued on our way. Later on we had the mother of all rainshowers for a full hour, testing the waterproof state of my bags: they were fine :-)
In short: love them !!
There is nothing better on the market
Md Ayza Azurith A.
Still can’t get over how easy it is to mount the motobags on and off my bike. Very happy to own them!
Everything was as expected.
These Motobags are the best. Totally uncomplicated to install. Right out of the box they fitted perfectly. The great thing is that when you want to switch to de hard paniers you don't have to uninstall any parts of the Motobags. You can switch in seconds if you want. Also the Overlanderbag and the 6L minibags are a musthave. I also had the headlight protector installed and it is a beautiful design and looks great with the orange running lights of the latest BMW model R1250GS. All in all I'm very satisfied. In about a week from now I'm traveling to Romania and do some off-road and camping. Oh yeah almost forgot, I also bought the Lone Rider ADV tent and it is a great tent. Super easy to set up and lots of space to store your gear. Thanks and keep up the good work. Arie from Germany
Hello, I switched from the original BMW aluminum cases to the Leon-Ride and I have to say I am very satisfied.
I have a couple >1000km trips with the MotoBags under the belt now and they have been up to the task and then some so far. Dust and water are kept at bay while out on the road or trail. A few dirt naps haven’t fizzed on them either. I’ve even managed to snag a few compliments after fielding some questions from fellow riders. If you’re on the fence and considering these, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Great product, trip 20.000km
Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran
Super solid gear. Bomb proof. I ride everyday. These bags are the highest quality. Plug and play out of the box for my 2022 R1250 GS ADV. They fold into flat when not needed. They never come off my motorbike. Ever use a hard case ever again. Super light. I went with 31L right and 38L offset left. Best purchase.
Shared my thoughts on the MotoBags in a previous post. These panniers are the best! I’ve only used them a little, but I’m totally impressed with the quality and look! I will be purchasing more items from Lone Rider. Also, Anna is awesome! She exemplifies how customer service should be!
Mounting on the Givi frame (Givi One-Fit Rapid Release Tubular Side Case Holder Cam-Side Monokey - PLOR7710CAM) was very difficult to get right. I don't recommend them on those frames.
