The Golden Arrow was designed to blend in with any environment and to work as well as a suitcase as it does a motorcycle pannier. So whether you be camping in Carlisle or residing at the Ritz these were designed for all eventualities. They are hinged at the bottom with the catch at the top. These are an excellent piece of luggage with the fact that they are compact but still having quite a large volume. They look slick on every bike and as standard the bottom fixing is quick release secure push button.
