Jesse Aluminum Luggage Made in the USA | Motorcycle Products Topics
Jesse Luggage Systems is one of the most trusted names in adventure touring. Our passion here at Jesse Luggage has always been on providing the best in durability and functionality. All of Jesse Luggage is made in Arizona, U.S., and comes with the mounting hardware and everything needed to get you going.
What The Luggage is Made Of
Jesse Luggage is made from 2mm thick aluminum, hand-welded, and assembled with stainless steel parts. Our lids are hinged on to the boxes and provide extra packing space or even a flat place to put your camp stove when setting up camp. We make virtually every part of the bags to our specifications. Our luggage has a capacity of 105 liters (for the R1200GS) yet maintains a narrow profile when mounted on the bike - only 35' wide mounted on the R1200GS. Our unique angled Seattle Motorcycle Parts Store and interior MIG-welding provide for improved strength.
The Angled Corners
Angled corners help in increasing the overall strength of the boxes. Visualize the difference between you trying to push in the corner of a cardboard box versus the side. You know you can indent the side of the box with much less force than the corner. The same thing holds true for aluminum. Our Motorcycle Shops have been crash-tested by many customers, who consistently tell us how surprised they are that the boxes survived with so little damage. Another reason for those angles is to provide clearance while riding. The side angles provide for cornering clearance, and the front angles enable you to paddle in deep sand without the worry of catching a heel.
Jesse Panniers Are Strong
They are stronger than most of the other Motorcycle Products on the market. In a recent test in Adventure Bike Rider magazine, they said, In the event of nuclear war, climb in a Jesse.' and 'Buy these if you're riding in war zones!' These Jesse panniers are well made, well finished, and very strong.
Another feature with the Jesse panniers is the resistant hinges, which means the lid stays where you put it and will not drop down and bend the side of the pannier. The catches/locks also act as carrying handles. Once you have removed the pannier from the bike, close one catch and carry the panniers using the other catch as a handle, one pannier in each hand. All the panniers come with a sprung steel retainer that holds your stuff in the lid so that it does not fall out when you open it.
All of the above is why Motorcycle Bags are so successful in the U.S.A. Jesse Luggage is probably the best luggage in the world if you are going on a big trip and want it to last for years.
