    Default Dirt Bike Pannier Carrier

    We do motocross and trail rides with our dirt bikes.
    Next weekend is a 60 kilometre long trail ride. We normally only ride 15 kilometre loops twice before stopping to re-fuel, rest, drink and eat.
    We normally only carry water, first aid products and an air pump. But this trail ride we need to take food, tools, spare tube and a two way radio.
    Thus we need some way to carry the extra 5 kilos of weight.
    I came up with an idea and drew it on my cad system. I printed out the design and glued it to a sheet of 1.6mm or 1/16th" ali.
    Then the usual took place cut and shape.

    With the carrier attached to the bike I can now test fit the push bike pannier I purchased and work out how to fix it to the carrier without any movement.

    So far so good.

    That's super clean. Good work. How did it work on your ride?
