yes, I haven't told zigzag about the false bottom, I'll tell him they are heavy because of the quality. :)

Bike looks good Kaiser but that bar bag will bounce and shoogle about loads offroad. I'd put stuff on the rack but thats just me.

Dead jealous of you lot but unfortunately my ME is playing up so I couldn't do it if I tried :(

One pannier is not noticeable in its effect on handling even off road but make sure the racks securely fitted :wink:

Have fun, dont do anything dangerously stupid and I look forward to your tales of adventure :D
