Received this product in January, in Maine, and so have yet to put it to the test. However, my wife has an Oxford tail bag which she has used extensively, for two riding seasons, in heavy rain and all kinds of weather, on the Honda PCX-150 and it has performed admirably; waterproof, stable and dependable. I ride a Vespa GTS300 and was looking for saddlebags to expand the storage for long trips. Having had a great experience with the Oxford tailbag, I chose the Oxford X50 pannieres, which are basically two bigger "tailbags" linked by three attached adjustable velcro straps. The pannieres themselves are made of extremely durable cordura material with heavy zippers and an internal waterproof bag (same as the tailbag) for each panniere, which I prefer over external covers which might blow off at speed. Each can be unzipped to expand the storage capacity, as shown in the photos. Both pannieres also have lots of reflective material for night riding, although one arrived with a small scratch on one of the reflective patches, visible only upon close inspection. Both pannieres come with comfortable and conveniently-placed grab handles for portage off the bike. The pannieres were easy to fit under the opened seat of the Vespa; the three velcro straps adjust quickly and easily, and attach very securely and quickly. Locking the seat down holds the three velcro straps in place, leaving the pannieres to hang beside the bike; rubber backing on each panniere protects the paint from scratches. Additionally, there are two additional bungee cords provided to attach to the crash bars on the bike. One advantage of these pannieres over other luggage types is that I can now refill the underseat gas tank without having to remove the luggage. See attached photos. Incidentally, I considered the Oxford X60 pannieres but was concerned that they would stick too far out beside the bike to be attractive, and I believe that I made the correct choice; the X60s might look best on a bigger bike, and the X50s have all the capacity I will need. Overall these seem like very well-made and serviceable luggage and I am anxious to give them a try!

Nice fit - just what I was looking for.
Ordered for my CBR1100XX, used as a daily commuter and for touring. The finish of the product is very nice, looks good on the bike - worked well in a hour drive in a pouring rain. The installation requires a bit of thought (and the hard inserts do have to be trimmed down to fit properly), but once done it has been easy to remove and re-install as necessary. As I am not a big fan of hard bags on the Blackbird I find this to be the right alternative.

jared e: needed a water resistant or proof bag to carry wet weather gear and other odds and ends on long day rides and be my daily storage.Feb 11, 2015
J A: I ride a Vespa 300 and needed luggage that would allow me to lift the seat for fueling, without removing the luggage. Looked at the Oxford X60 but they seemed like they would be so big that they'd look really dorky, so I chose the X50 and am hopeful that it will be the right choice. Also should say that we have used an Oxford X30 tailbag for the Honda PCX150 for a year, and it has performed in outstanding fashion, so I wanted to stay with the Oxford brand.Jan 13, 2015
F R: because I want some panniers for my motorcycle and your price is the best, bar ends down!Jan 9, 2015
anthony F asked:I ride a cbr600. The exhaust comes out behind the passag seat. Most bag systems have straps that would touch the exhaust, get hot, and catch fire (happened to a buddy). Will this bag system mount without using the under seat straps?Feb 3, 2015
jared e:maybe wrap heat resistant tape around the strap location? i know my buddy kept burning his leg on pips and this solved issue, might resolve potential issue. sorry cant directly answer, I am ordering bag myself.Feb 11, 2015
