Imagine you want to make a longer tour and need to add some panniers. ICE Trikes has a picture on their site of the Vortex equipped with panniers at the rack and Radical Design recumbent bags mounted at the seat looking like this:
Sorry, but apart from totally screwing up corner handling of a trike with weight high up at the rear wheel it also destroys the look of this beauty quite well.
An now a little Photoshop…
How is this idea instead? A pair of Givi E21 Cruiser cases provide a sturdy crash and water proof solution that look good and has a fairly low center of mass for good handling.
Another shopped example of the cases at an ICE Sprint 26 X
