How adventurous is your adventure biking?

I won't have hard panniers on my bike..., or even soft panniers if I can cope without them.

Me neither. I like my bumbag and/or pockets - and a tank bag and a small tailpack if it's a weekend away.

I'm not sure there was a lot of choice over that - it was more like it followed him! At least his helmet was well secured ..... :80:

Certainly the fastest that bikes ever been. Think it says more about the rider and the person filming it than it does about panniers!

Nothing more than rider error hard or soft luggage is required when on an adventure ride accordingly simple lots of negative comments on panniers and bike not really need from fellow bikers
