The Desert Fox Storm 700 water & dust proof motorcycle soft saddle pannier bags are designed to be tough, secure and simple to use.
With any dual sport or adventure bike you want to carry enough gear to be comfortable at night but still be able to handle some pretty rough terrain be it river crossings, dirt tracks or mud.
There is nothing worse than soggy clothes and a wet sleeping bag after a day’s hard ride.
We have been there, too many times, and realized there must be a simple cost-effective, universally fitting solution to this perineal soft motorcycle luggage problem.
Whether you call it a saddle bag, pannier or cargo bag the net result is the same – your gear needs to be 100% protected from the elements.
It must simply work.
