So, last summer, I helped a fellow Tiger rider load up his motorcycle to ship to the Triumph shop for a damage assessment after an unfortunate accident. He was banged and bruised, and his poor motorcycle was broken.
.....And that just SUCKS...
After getting his estimate for repairs, I told him to save everything as Triumph parts are expensive and hard to get a hold of in a hurry. Long story short, they even replaced his Trax Evo Aluminum Panniers and brackets... Yes they were bent and dented... and I wanted them if he did not have further use of them.
The factory panniers I have are plastic. One of them is cracked and the other will just barely fit a granola bar, due to the exhaust pipe routing.
So these would fit a ton of stuff for Adventures with Bud E.
So out come the repair tools, and let the beatings begin.

So that's my story today, saving the planet by recycling two very large aluminum cans at a time. Thanks Jim.
