Hello all. Noob here so I can't create a new thread but I joined because I traded in my beloved Honda CBR500r last month and bought a '22 Tiger Sport 660. I'm very happy with my purchase. It's my first Triumph and so far I'm loving it.
Upgraded primarily so that I could take my bike on longer rides more comfortably. As I've been using it a bit, I'm now thinking I might even sell our 2nd car and become a 1 bike / 1 car household. My question for you all has to do with luggage.
My bike came with the topcase mount (but no topcase). So I can either buy a topcase or the panniers. I'm looking for the best option for grocery shopping, which I've done in the past with a backpack only. If I'm going to spend some money on either the panniers or the topcase, which would you suggest? Personally I don't like the look of the topcase as much, but I also want to be able to continue to lane split (here in California). What would you do in my shoes?
