    I live in Chiang Mai and will do a Laos bike trip soon. I have checked around town for a set of soft over-the-seat saddlebags with no success - the Chinaman shop on Chiang Moi Rd, G-Shop near the river, even the BMW shop who have a custom carry box for 19,000 baht(!) I talked with Tony at Tony's Big Bikes and a few other local bikers. Still no joy.

    Something like in this photo would be perfect

    I need them in a week so ordering from Bangkok won't work this time. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hi captain-bob,

    Same you, I did it some 2 or 3 months ago for my Fazer... But as not in a hurry I order in UE...
    NO-THING in CNX! There is not the market for thai riders...

    Maybe you can try this on Mocycshop. If items available, "it is said" they deliver very quickly (2 or 3 days after payment).

    or
    http://www.mocycshop.com/product.detail ... th_1627754

    I'm not involved in the trade with Mocyc, OK? So no responsibility from my part for the quality of product, service, delay, and the rest... :wink:
    Just if can help...

    Good luck,
    And happy trail in Laos!

    Thanks gobs - the bags on that link look good for another trip. Guess like many people seem to do I'll just bunjy down a duffel bag for this trip but I still have a few days to search, just hoped to avoid any top-heaviness which can be unsafe when the road gets slippery. Thanks again for your suggestions.
