Rackless Motorcycle Luggage Versus Soft Panniers

If you’re an off road motorcycle travel enthusiast looking for the best adventure bike luggage or dual sport luggage, the very first choice you have to make is a simple one: rackless motorcycle luggaage versus soft panniers?

Both options have their advantages, but the choice between them is not as simple as it might seem on the surface. Rackless motorcycle luggage doesn’t require racks (obviously) so you aren’t adding unnecessary expense or weight. There are less potential failure points and the weight of your gear sits where a bike is designed to carry weigh under stress: on the subframe. Motorcycle rackless luggage can also move from bike to bike quickly and easily without needing to buy racks for every motorcycle you own.

Motorcycle soft panniers are generally regarded as better for travel because they carry more gear and add more weight to your bike than a rackless setup. Soft panniers for motorcycles are easier to swap with hard cases if you have compatible soft luggage mounts and they keep the top of your bike free for additional cargo or a passenger.
