Dirt Bagz Ranger soft panniers and frame

Does anyone have the Ranger panniers and frame from Dirt Bagz?

http://www.dbzproducts.com/specs.htm

They have a frame for F650/F800s. It's an inexpensive choice. If anyone has them I'd like to hear how it's working out. I'm obviously not looking for the RTW solution -- just something well made and functional to carry some stuff.

Got them on my '11 f800gs. Actually the bags were on my ktm lc4. Just bought new mounts for the bmw. Work fine for me. Cheap, don't dent if you lay bike down. I don't need to carry a lot of stuff very often so they work well for me. Just put them on when needed.

1+, I have them on my 10 F800 very light (7 lbs total) and inexpensive. Work well for muti-day trips. I did add a wrap of gorilla tape to the clip loops to prevent rubbing the finish to the metal. Also a tip I got from Mark (BigDog), picked up a couple of 12 qt plastic trash cans from the dollar store, fit well and keeps the bags solid when empty. These with a small roll top dry bag and I am good for 2 days or 2 months on the road! And yes I did used to ride a KLR

Just an update --

I did get the Dirt Bagz Rangers panniers and the matching rack. Easy install on the rack -- 2 bolts out -- 4 bolts in. The bags and rack work as advertised. A happy customer. Exactly what I needed at a very fair price. Not for carrying a heavy load but I don't plan to.
