MotoTrekk Panniers (sold as a set of two) are slim, rugged, dry bag-inspired panniers sized for overnight or multi-day trips. Made of welded waterproof fabric and featuring a roll-top closure, contents stay dry and dust free. In addition, their integrated mounting system enables them to strap to virtually any motorcycle side luggage racks, working well for both on- and off-road adventures.

Other rider-friendly features include lash loops to secure waterproof roll-top Possibles Pouches™ to the front and back of the panniers for expanded storage capacity, and quick-connect magnetic buckles to facilitate easy mounting and removal—even when packed.

“MotoTrekk performed flawlessly and gave me the assurance that my gear is always protected from the elements. The bags are only 6 pounds when empty, and they’re also slim, so I didn’t have the wide and heavy feeling I’m used to with hard panniers.”

Road Runner Motorcycle Touring & Travel Magazine


MotoTrekk Panniers use six webbing connection points per pannier to mount to our GL Pannier Mounts™ (sold separately) or virtually any side luggage rack system; no additional mounts or hardware are required. In addition, a quick-release magnetic buckle allows the pannier to hang from the top of the rack, making the mounting and dismounting process easier.

When used with our GL Pannier Mounts, the MotoTrekk Panniers become a quick-release, quick-mount, lockable soft luggage system. Their universal design also makes them compatible with almost any motorcycle side luggage racks—including dual sport, adventure touring, naked, standard, sport touring, scrambler, and V-twin motorcycles. From our experience, MotoTrekk Panniers have fit on every conventional side luggage tubing rack we’ve tested.

Giant Loop recommends using Vinyl Protective Film where panniers make direct contact with body panels and plastics to protect surfaces against scuffing or marks. We also recommend installing our optional Hot Springs Heat Shield™ to prevent the panniers or side panels from making direct contact with exhaust components.

    I’ve travelled with my MotoTrekk soft bags sparingly, but I’m gearing up for a MABDR trip and have opted to take them along instead of hard boxes. I haven’t packed them yet with the gear I plan to bring, but I think with a little effort I should be able to fit a big portion of everything I’ll need for a 7 day camping trip in them. In my experience, they are definitely tough/durable, waterproof and easy to mount to my existing rack systems. I’ve used them on both my dual sport WR250R and R1200GS. Both bikes have rack systems from different manufacturers and I have had no trouble mounting the MotoTrekks to either bike. I do plan to expand them a little bit with a couple of Possibles Pouches. This combined with my Columbia Dry bag should make for a very effective and off-road safe setup.

    I purchased the Motto Trekk soft paniers for an upcoming motorcycle camping trip. I have been totally impressed with both their storage capacity and their waterproof material. Now I don’t need to get any extra dry bags for my non waterproof gear. Even with ought the quick release mounts they are easy to mount on my panier racks. They have easy carrying straps and handles, for the times when you are taking them off the bike. This makes it so much easier to bring the paniers into the tent with me. They don’t move around even when taking a tight corner. They fit my Big Agnes bike packing tent inside with plenty of room to spare for all my gear and clothes. With these amazing soft bags I am prepared to go anywhere, feeling reassured that I have room for all my tools in case theirs is a need for them. I am also glad to know that they will work with the Possibilities pouch if I ever need to bring any extra gear with me. I can never go back to hard paniers after using these. I could not recommend them any more. Best purchase I have made for my bike yet.

    Well at first I thought what a great setup, turns out I was half right. Here’s the problem, and I blame myself entirely on my lack of attention to detail. I purchased to of these packs and on the inaugural trip I destroyed one, in the sense it will never be waterproof again.

    The bags have all black straps, a lot of them, and one of them is critical. It’s the center magnetic strap that if you don’t pay attention to, or you get distracted when installing the bags you’re in for trouble, it’s very long and has potential to go where you don’t want it. I think GL didn’t take into consideration rider fatigue and here’s why.

    After riding 400 miles, the bags were great. Removed them for a short nights sleep to ride another 350 the following day. In the morning i installed the bags quickly and set off on the next adventure. As I was accelerating I felt it, a big jerk indicative of a foreign object inserting itself into the drive train somewhere, and my heart sank. I knew what it was immediately and yes, that extra long strap went and destroyed itself, fortunately not the bike, creating a nice hole in the top where the strap once resided.

    I think Giant Loop should change that singular strap from black to RED, so that it really stands out amongst the spider web of black, giving us tired riders a chance at optically identifying the weak link before we self destroy it. In aviation with pins and covers are RED so we don’t launch with them attached to the plane. Seems a smoke fix on GLs part, I hope they consider it.

    I know it’s my fault, but I’m knocking my rating down for one very expensive mistake and the fact that I didn’t destroy two bags, saving myself $350 LOL and I laugh with a tear in my eye, and a tear in my bag.

    Learn from my mistake, take your time as you attach each strap, and in particular the remnant end of them….

    I have the Moto Trekk panniers and GLhard mounts. Yet to go out camping in the first 30 days of ownership but find them only a little different to get used to than my old hard panniers.. I had questions about the hard mounts moving around or rattling but called customer service and find after owning them that it is actually no problem at all they Snap-on and don’t move around. I’ve used this type of waterproof duffel 3 years prior to this and convinced me that this type of materials and construction really works very well and allows you to pack objects of all sizes. I’m using mine on a 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 with the OEM mounts they fit perfectly. 2 different manufacturers of hard luggage I’ve used were quite easy to take off but I never remove them when I was camping and I see these being so much easier I may well take one into the tent especially if it’s a rainy night. The last three years I’ve traveled about 20,000 miles each year and I’m camping out about 7 weeks a year so have quite a bit of experience with loading and unloading my gear these will be perfect. Also would like to add that in a tip over these are going to be a lot easier on the hard mounts to cushion the landing and not damage the motorcycle sub frame and mounts.
    Thanks GL

    Just got the Mototrekk Panniers to go with a MoskoMoto 50 liter duffle for my LD touring/camping needs. HOWEVER, after seeing how easy the aluminum mounting plates go on and off, I’m thinking of just getting a set of the Round the World Panniers and skipping the MoskoMoto duffle entirely. It would make life a LOT easier for this 60 yr old to swing his leg over the seat after a long day off road. If they are as HUGE as the reviews state, I could even ditch my tank bag and have better forward movement while standing. Only question now is do I keep the MotoTrekk paniers and a tank bag for a short trip loadout, or return them and just use the RTW panniers for an all the time configuration?
