Now that Eric has let this out of the bag... (Sorry bad pun there) I can tell you that he spent a lot of time and energy designing bags to meet the needs of ADVriders like us.
He figured out what types of gear, and how much we carry, and how we like to pack our bags, and then worked to make luggage that suited our uses.
I used several prototypes last year, and based on honest feedback, each generation of these bags got better...
I can vouch for the fact that these bags are easy to load and attach to the bike, are very durable in a 15 mph crash, and waterproof in a day of heavy rain.
Here are a few more pictures.
Add the external bottle holders and you can carry:
- Chain lube
- 33oz of camp stove fuel
- 33oz motor oil
- Evening victory beer.
This way all the fuels and lubes are on the outside of your luggage in case they leak..
