Having traded in my BMW GS650F for a Triumph Scrambler 900 I have not missed anything other than the capacity to carry my tech. I have got round this in two ways. One is to fit a removable tail pack to the rear rack which can carry all my camera gear and lenses. And the other main solution which is all I need 90% of the time is to buy and fit the official Triumph Scrambler 900 Pannier.
It’s effectively a thick leather briefcase large enough for a 15″ laptop, small camera and cables etc. More than enough should I be off to give a presentation or consultation for the day.
It’s not cheap mind. Around £200 from @PureTriumph but this includes the bracket that fixes to the bike allowing quick attaching and disconnecting. It’s probably the most well made bag I own which is saying something what with my present bag fetish.
High quality, big enough for my tech and comes with a rain cover should you find yourself in a torrential downpour. I thought I’d feel weird having a bag on only one side of the bike but it off sets the twin pipes nicely and reminds me of the saddle bag on the classic triumphs in the film The Wild One.
It’s also the perfect size for me as with other bikes, if i have the space to carry stuff.. I tend to go crazy.
