Ever been caught in the rain with these "Tourmaster" bags? If so do they keep things dry?

The problem with bikes aimed at first time riders is that first time riders buy them..

Thanks for sharing. I checked their website. These panniers are 12 litres per side. Great for day trips or commuting, but not enough for touring. My current panniers have 26 litres per side.
Of course, this large capacity is useless when the right one touches the muffler.

That's right if you go any deeper then your touching the silencer. Only way to get more space is to go wider or a bit longer, if you go any wider starts to spoil the look of the bike. Anyway old geezer like me hard to swing the leg over

And wrecks your aerodynamics as well. When you've only got 30 odd ponies to push through the air you need all the help you can get! For this reason I travel light and try to get everything in the soft bag I put on the pillion seat/tail piece and the rest in my tank bag. I'm heading away on an over-nighter this weekend, usually it's easy to fit everything in as long as your not camping.

The bag I put on the back is just one half of a saddle bag set I bought for touring in the 80's. An Australian made brand called Gearsack that made stuff as tough as nails, hence still going strong today. They no longer manufacturing though.

The tank bag is a magnetic one made by Oxford. similar to this:

Works well.
