We designed our product line-up for Yamaha Tenere 700 with rack-less soft luggage in mind. Perun moto Yamaha Tenere 700 Top luggage rack provides smooth and perfectly positioned slots for upper straps, Yamaha Tenere 700 Side carriers offers support for the sides of the bags and Yamaha Tenere 700 Tie-down brackets are perfect as a lower tie-down point.
This works great for several most popular rack-less systems. Here are a few photos of Giant loop Great Basin on this setup. Other systems are shown in the blog posts too, look it up. All posts are written in the same manner, so it should be easy to compare the fitment of different systems.
In this case, bags are positioned as far forward as possible, without interfering with a rider, sitting or standing. This greatly contributes to mass centralization and improves the handling of the bike.
Also, set up like this and with the help of Side carriers, bags are not touching the silencer at all.
It is hard to take a decent photo, but Side carriers are supporting the rear end of the bags.
At the same time, Tie-down brackets provide perfectly placed tie-down points for lower straps.
And Top luggage rack offers smooth slots, which are angled, so upper straps can be strapped properly.
One of the benefits of this setup is that it is (relatively) narrow. Much more narrow than the handlebars.
These bags are on the market for a very long time, and they received many updates and improvements. Very polished product, time-tested.
Outer pockets are waterproof. Three waterproof inner soft bags (with air valves!) come with the system. Total, a bit less than 70 liters.
Since almost entire rear part of the Top luggage rack it is easy to add extra luggage or extra fuel or water in Giant loop Armadillo bag. Straps needed to secure it are already on the back of the Great Basin.
