On second thoughts I prefer the all grey version as it is.
Shall I order on the web site? :062:

Ok no problem, yes please do order from the website, I have only three sets for the Explorer coming in the first delivery and one set is sold already so the sooner you order the better

Cheers

Hi Cliff,

Just to let you know my Bumots arrived today!!  :046: Can't wait to get home and get them fitted on Saturday  :152:
All your efforts are very much appreciated, customer service above and beyond, thank you.

When I was at the bike show last year I was wandering around looking for the perfect pannier, I could see it in my head but couldn't find it anye here,  until I turned a corner and there you were! You were a pleasure to do business with from the very first handshake,  I wish you continued success in the future, and once again, thank you!   :020:

Hi DonVulpes,

I can't really comment on how your panniers compare to these as I've never really seen the Trax panniers in the flesh, so to speak, but OneWay has written a really good description of the Bumots a couple of pages back, he has also posted pictures. I chose the Bumots because they are an incredibly strong looking, and feeling, pannier. There is also a great side by side test with all the leading competitors on Adventure Bike TV, I think there is a link on the Adventure Bike Shop link somewhere.
Sorry I can't be more help but ill put some pictures up once they are fitted this weekend, I went for the Frozen Grey colour so you will be able to compare to the black of the ones fitted to OneWay's bike.

Thanks. It was OneWay's review that picqued my interest and even though I'm happy with the Trax, I might find a little more space handy ( I have 2 x 37L ) and the locks are woeful, so I'm never 100% sure my gear is going to be there when I get back.

I look forward to seeing some pics, although I'm pretty sure I'd go for black...just need to move my stickers across  :084:

I sell both the Bumot and the S W Motech, the Trax Adventure panniers are a good pannier, much better than the Trax Evo panniers, but the Bumots are stronger and cut to fit around the exhaust so you have more capacity but less width, add the toolbox and its a better all round set up.

Cheers
