I urgently needed a proper luggage system for my 660Z Tenere, but am financially quite constrained (i.e. I'm broke).
After exhaustive research, these saddlebags proved to be the most cost-effective option available. They also appear to be the most practical, especially for the type of riding I want to get into. Revzilla offered them at a reasonable price, cheaper even than our local distributor here in Oz (we get so gouged here price-wise on everything). And that price was delivered!
I ordered them on the Friday and they arrived at my home on the monday. Unbelievable! Revzilla's customer service was pretty good too, very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.
I've since used these bags, and must say that I'm very happy with them. They seem to be high quality items, and the included dry bags are a thoughtful and perfect way to keep things dry and organised. I was able to stuff a lot of gear into them. As my equipment list grows for ADV riding/camping, I like how I can expand my capacity but strapping stuff behind these saddlebags. I'm still working out a couple of the buckles, but that's just my own stupidity. The bags do affix to the bike securely, and the bike still handles well.
I'm planning to get the Giant Loop dry bag and tank bag next (plus various other bits and pieces) as soon as I can afford them, and you can bet I'll be order ordering them from Revzilla.
Outstanding product, outstanding supplier. Thank you and well done to both.
