There is a lot of debate about panniers. Hard or soft? At Touratech we speak with riders all the time that want to know what luggage best suits their riding style and/or plans for future riding. We’re kind of partial to hard luggage.
We thought the best resource to tap regarding panniers (or anything else having to do with long-distance motorcycle travel is Helge Pedersen. The Godfather of ADV.
Touratech asked him to make a few short videos discussing his reasons for using hard luggage. In this video, Helge talks about his general luggage philosophy.
Helge continues to ride the world with his Globeriders team!
