While I love my well farkled 07 KLR, I just can't bring myself to spend $700 for a good set of panniers which might get used once a year. I've seen the Ammo Box idea but you still need an expensive rack and the boxes weigh a bunch. The Giant Loop Great Basin bag is interesting but still $400. Has anyone got a good solutions that doesn't cost a bunch? I've thought about taking some canoe type dry bags and trying to make saddle bags but I'd like to hear some good ideas from the group. As always, thanks for the expert advise.
