Problems with ST1300 Panniers coming a drift?

If you have had a pannier come a drift it may not have been because you didn't lock it in properly. Take a look at this attachment.

Me nether, in 13 years. I always check that the bottom is positioned correctly on the mount. I find that unless the top mounting positions are in place. I cannot turn the key to lock them in place.

I always give them a good shake and pull just to make sure they are secure... :grin
