I have bmw aluminum panniers and top box for my 2015 GS800 adventure. I’m looking for a simple but effective (read: also affordable) way to keep smaller things in one spot when I ride, but also can pack larger things when I need to. Any suggestions?
In that case, I'd just go with a set of these: https://www.bestemusa.com/BMW-R1200GS-Saddlebag-Sideliners-Side-Case-Trunk-Liners-Bags-with-Clear-Pocket--Pair_p_975.htmlThe panniers are the same size as the 1200gs.
+1 to that. I buy 2-gallon ziplock bags. You can put several folded tshirts, or two week's worth of socks or undershorts in a single bag. They're a bit tricky to find at the grocery store, but you can order them off Amazon. You can also buy compression bags in the luggage section at Walmart, but these are almost as roomy, and a whole lot cheaper.Heavy duty clear zip lock bags. Craft pouches from Hobby Lobby. Tupperware like containers from Dollar stores, Wal-Mart, etc. Pouches from the hiking and camping area from Academy, Wal-Mart, or any sporting good store. I like clear containers so that I can see what is inside instead of opening each one.
that's what I use. I also use key ring tags (cardboard circle with metal rim) to help identify contents.There's some little draw string stuff sacks at walmart in the camping section that are multi colored that I use for my everyday stuff. Blue bag for rain gear, red bag for electric liners, etc.
