Noah is transferring his KTM 690 Enduro to Indonesia, by boat. He had to lock up his Siskiyou Panniers, by order of the boat captain, so here is his solution.
Noah posted on our ADVrider thread, “I had to put my girl onto a Vegetable boat today bound for Indonesia. They said I can leave my bags on her, but I should secure them. My solution was to find some wire rope and crimps. I ran a string through the bags to find the desired length, then cut the wire rope accordingly. Obviously this will not stop someone determined to get into the bags, but it will slow them down. You can also lock the zipper closed using the loop inside where the buckle is. I had to use a round file on the zipper pull to fit the padlock through.”
