Hello there people - This site (ADVRider) has been quite an inspiration for us over the past few years. Truly a global community of enthusiasts that have enlightened us to cultures, methods, experiences and places that I would certainly never have been exposed to. We are proud to announce the launch of our new product and hope to hear from those interested. Thanks for a really cool web environment.

can your fully-loaded machine do this?





or this?





No racks to bend, break, or stress your subframe.



Bolt this right to your plastic - it 'hugs' the bike like a tiny passenger that never complains.




Ride a KTM? get yourself a spare fender and permanently mount the bag for easy swapping.



It makes an XR look even better!



Remember that '95 KTM RXC 620? No racks, no melting and ready for the 1000 mile loop!

Great looking product. Any chance these might work on a 950 Super Enduro? Even my aluminum FMF's get pretty warm back there.

Nifty Bags

Dear Wachs,
I spoke to you a couple times last week-thanks for returning my calls. I just placed my order and want to make sure the bags will we delivered well in advance of my 10/13/08 departure date for the Mexico (Chabochis-"Hairy Face") Rallye.
Please advise.
Thanks,
Jimmy

absolutely best design i've seen for softbags. Not sure about the MSRP, but with a design like that, you'll probably get it.

Hi Wach,

What's a week, I can wait a week for pictures. Re which design might be best, I want to use the bag for long desert trips in Australia and the tracks vary from good dirt roads to rough as guts and bulldust which gets into everything. I've been using Ortlieb roll top bags which are water/bulldust proof and good but I'd love to piss the racks off and get a bit more crash resistance.

Do you envisage the new design will be available in Australia in May? Will they be quick release?

Ta,

Adrian

Hi there! Looks nice and well thought. I just checked out your website and was wondering if you could show the mounting system and how the bag attaches/detaches. Is the bag bolted to the bike or just the mounting system? It isn't clear to me but perhaps i missed something.

We are producing a short install video this weekend and will imbed on our website, that should make this much clearer.


Have you guys seen any fatigue of the plastic with this system? So there are no straps that hold the bag to the bike, at all?

Thanks Wachs, I am on a Suz DR350.

Ok, so the bag bolts on and off...straps are for cinching down the bag or strapping stuff to the bag, not for mounting to the bike right? Brilliant for dual sport touring. Very interesting.

I think the install video would clear up confusion as how it mounts.

I've held off buying a set of bags for the RXC for a long time. Never found anything that really fit the entire bill. This is looking pretty damn close.



Is there a "max width" that the back of the bike can be? (or for that matter, minimum width?) Like if I get a set for my KTM now, will it fit on the GS800/Wee/Whatever my next long distance bike is? Or are streetbikes too wide?

I guess I don't have a handle on how much of the bag shape is pre-formed, and how much of it is from having it fixed to the bike.




Also, does stuff inside need to be drybagged, or does the GL do an acceptable job of it?
