These are Oxford Extreme panniers. They sit nicely and have a good carrying capacity. Don't know if they are available outside UK though

Cyclegear has a set of Oxford F1 bags in my price range. I'll just grab those.

Did you pull your turn signals off or something or am I just not looking hard enough?

Question is - travel alone or with a passenger?
If alone, nothing simpler than a proper bag mounted on the passenger seat part. It can be expanded left and right adding side bags secured well with a couple stripes.

I traveled Mexico from Cancun to Copan Ruinas in Honduras, Guatemala stopping again at Antiqua for 2 weeks, Belize orange Walk back to Mexico and Chetumal, and from Valladoid to Merida, Campeche, Puebla, back to San Cristobal and Palenque, and lots more, from Vancouver Canada and back, 8 months, with a small backpack and all 3.5 k dollars. All you need is 3 pair of socks, 3 underwear, 2 shirts, fleece, windbreaker, and that's all.

Building an engine from random parts. This will eventually morph into building a bike from random parts - if it ever happens. Need a frame to begin with.
