Royal Enfield + Longride

  • 2 min read

Royal Enfield devotees, this article is for you.
Here are some photos from our customers, showing off their setup with Longride bags. We will also explain how they installed their luggage.

Let's start off with this Classic 350.
The Scout Pannier is installed with the LOXX system. The leather flap support is secured under the seat, allowing a quick release of the bag.

The following customer also relies on the LOXX mounting system.
He handcrafted a custom frame and cut the leather flap for a perfect fit.
This allows him to release his Mini Patriot saddlebags easily.

Next, a straight-forward solution that involves no work.
This Royal Enfield is fitted with simple pannier rails onto which our customer mounts his set of Mini Patriots bags, with their autonomous Saddleback mounting system.

If you own a set of two Longride saddlebags, you can set them as throw-overs.
You will receive saddle belts to attach them together. You can position them on the seat, or secure them below it. This is the method used on this Royal Enfield Classic 500.
You can find more details about this setup in this video.

This method works well with this bike as the exhausts are straight. They don't come up close and personal with the bottom end of the bags. In other words, it's an interesting method for the Classic Royal Enfield, not so much for a 650 interceptor where you would probably need pannier rails.

Let's end on a final alternative with a customised Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.
These bikes are fitted with the "Adventure Kit" created by the French garage Atelier du Motographe.

Amongst the parts offered in the kit, you can opt for the luggage rack.
It was developed with the Longride Super Patriot in mind. If offers plenty enough support and works best with our Saddleback mounting system.

This kit was initially designed for Mono 500, a French based riding experience provider. They organise trips around the world, and need sturdy, adventure-ready bikes to run their business.
