So should we enter in both places, here and FB once per week, as long as the drawing is on?
Very good, elron! As long as you filled out the FB entry form after clicking on the sweeps graphics, you've hedged your bets nicely there.

Cheers,



Michael

I'd like to be entered as well please???
I have a GiantLoop Mojavi, but it's too small and the Coyote looks too big.... The Kriega has intrigued me and I am definitely wanting to get this set up.

I like having a decent amount of tool space, like the old XR's Only large tool bag or bigger for the top bag and then a size about double the capacity of the mojave side bags. This is for my XR650L.

What suggestion do you have for this use?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Another 625 mile with the Overlander 30 this weekend... I like it more and more as I use it.

Overlander 60 question

I currently run the BR Moto racks with brand X bags on my 990...I have one of your backpacks now and like it, and I am sure I would like the Overlander 60 as well. Has anyone mounted them up on a Backroads Moto racks? It looks like the racks are .75 or slightly larger than the 18mm.

Hey Durwood,

Thanks for your kind words about our backpack. I'm sure you would like the Overlander 60 just as well. However, unfortunately, at the moment, the only racks we can guarantee a perfect fit on are from Touratech, KTM Power Parts and Metal Mule.

While the tubing on your Backroads Moto racks might be close enough for the clamps to fit, the shape of them will be the limiting factor. The ADV Platforms that the Overlander 60 is based upon has multiple mounting points for the hardware, to enable exhausts and body work to be cleared on various machines. However, the adjustment is all based around the most popular shape of frames, which are roughly rectangular, such as these from KTM:



I know the lads back in the UK are looking at alternative mounts for Hepco & Becker, as well as SW Motech frames, which will hopefully be available in the not too distant future. I have also asked them to see if it is possible to develop mounting systems for oval frames, such as the ones you have or Wolfman etc, but I am not sure if it will be. That said, I'll let you know as soon as I do.


Sorry I can't be the bearer of better tidings at this stage. But do let me know if I can be of any further assistance.



Cheers,



Michael

I loaned my my US20 to my buddy Peter for last weekends trip. He has my old R15 but had never used any of the US bags. He was very impressed. (I hope he gives it back)



His comment as I was breaking camp and loading the Overlander30 "Wow! Those bags look so easy to pack up!" And he was right.

And now after another trip with the Overlander30 bags I am down to one and only one nit-picky complaint. The female fastex buckle that goes over the roll top needs to be on a shorter piece of webbing. Not that it doesn't work the way it is... I just think it would work slightly better with a shorter strap when the bags are not full.

This past weekends trip included a lot of fast, poorly maintained fire road, dual track and single track. The bags were rock solid. They did not require any messing with at all. Awesome.

Hey Wattner,

Based on what you say, it sounds like the Overlander 30 would be ideal. The capacity is going to be more than double your existing set-up (15 liters per side vs 4.5 liters per side), but that doesn't mean it'll be any more restrictive. You could either just grab a decent tool roll and stash it in one of the Overlander bags, or - as would be my personal preference - pick up and US-5 and put the tool roll in that, strapping it to the rear fender using the Rack Loop mounts included in the Overlander 30. Like so:



There won't be any fit issues on your XR. And - by sheer coincidence - you can see a the Overlander 30 lined up next to the same bags you have in traveltoad's photo above!

I hope that helps, but please feel free to post up any more questions you may have, or PM me a phone number and I'll be happy to call and learn a bit more about your particular requirements, so we can go through the options in greater detail.


Cheers,



Michael

Thanks - as always for the detailed feedback, Aaron. I'll definitely pass your nit back to Dom (who designed the Overlander) to see if there's any reason why that webbing loop shouldn't be shorter.

Lovin' the photos of the system out in its natural habitat too!


Cheers,



Michael
