Tusk Panniers - What a DRAG
Put on my new black Tusk Panniers yesterday. It took most all of the day to do. Mainly because I was lulled by the directions into using those crimp connectors. Of course they don't work worth a crap so then had to go an solder the extension on the left blinker.
Going to work this morning, I hit the highway and wow, these boxes cause an azzload of drag. I mean 400rpm worth or close. Also makes the bike less stable by a touch. Maybe if it the boxes were loaded it wouldn't seems so. But empty they like to play with all of the unstable air on a busy highway.
