Not exactly bike porn, but can someone tell me what these are for?

Oh! I see the OEM panniers. That's what I thought but until I located the installation instructions...

I don't think I'm obtuse, but I have looked everywhere to find out what these slots are for. Anyone

Honestly, I don't think a lot of AT owners are impressed with the cost and durability of the stock panniers.

I sourced aftermarket racks and they're super solid-like a rear crash bar. I'm glad I did. I could get the racks and some cheap panniers for less than just buying the oem panniers cost. Just something to consider.

I used Happy Trails panniers and rack they work
well and did not break the bank!
Very well made may different sizes available.

I'm leaning on going with this guy's box's. I've seen a top box in person and it's built very well and they're very competitively priced in my opinion. He has a couple of other videos showing AT's with different mounting hardware also.

Pannier attachment points. Super quick to mount and take off, and convenient for occasional use. Not really suited for heavy off road use. And somewhat fragile. But imho look the best.
