Can't see them in the photo - but the meshy section of the US-10 fits two 1L MSR bottles perfectly.
I just ordered a set of E-12 saddlebags (like your daytrippers but 3" wider) so I am glad to see how they fit. I had previously test fit the Rolie saddlebag setup with 2 mediums and 1 large bag but it just didn't fit worth a damn on the wide ass end of the 690 (fit beautifully on my GasGas 300 and a friends Husky TE250) and takes several minutes to get out of the way to access the fuel filler... not to mention that I'd have to completely remove the bags to access my front/airbox tank. I was really sad that they didn't end up working for the 690 because they really are a nice setup and would have met all of my needs otherwise. I still kept 1 medium rolie to mount on the seat and have a renegade duffel on it's way too.

I tried and got about half way through this thread and decided just to ask -
My new to me 08 690 has a SW Motech rear rack. What is the best soft bag for day rides that fits well and is not too big or small?
Also, what is the best "tank" bag, seems like a small Wolfman?

I just need to carry tools, tire repair stuff, water, hat, etc. for long day rides.

Thanks,
Davy

I have the KTM tank bag. I believe it is a good size and have been pleased so far. I just got the Motech also plus the aluminum plate/adapter that goes with it but I believe it is too wide so I may return it or cut it down. You should look at the Kriega US 10 and 20. I have both and they were my preferred gear bag on my other bike.

I like the GiantLoop Mojave - have the SW rear rack on my 690e. I could snap some pics later today if you are interested.

While I love the under seat fuel tank, having the gas cap behind the seat makes for tough packing, convenience wise.
I will be doing Wolfman rack & large rollie bags (I have already) with a duffel holding my tent/bag with some fastex quick release buckles for fueling.

Right now I can't bring myself to put on the racks as I am enjoying tight single track riding.
I hate to bulk up a trim bike!

That Kriega 10 looks good. Does anyone have a photo of it mounted on the SW Motech rack?

Don't like Rotopax on my rear TT rack at all now

I tried strapping one to my TT rack and ended up with this -

+1. I admit I had a bit of extra weight on top of it but, even still, I wouldn't have expected the rack to crack. Mine started to split -from the bottom- in the exact same place. Fortunately, I caught it in time, removed the rotopax and extra bag, and had the TT rack welded.

I use Rotopax and Coyote together.



Just twist the Rotopax handle, lift off tank to refuel the main tank.

I have the Touratech rear rack which is similar in size to the SW Motech one. I use the Wolfman Peak tail bag and the Wolfman Enduro tank bag. It works great for my needs. It's a perfect size to pack a day's worth of stuff.

Here's the only pic I could find:

The Letter J - you can't really see in the photos, but I have the forward straps of the wolfman bags tied into the frame. In my first tests I used the passenger pegs, but the left bag wanted to rest its lowest point on the top edge of the heat shield. And as you can see I've already melted a couple things on the exhaust, so wasn't eager to repeat.

With it tied to the frame it clears the heat shield nicely.

A picture would be great. Does it cover the gas cap?

The "old skool" wolfman tank panniers work well on the 690, btw.
I'm too lazy for real pics, you don't need much imagination to figure it out, though:

Gas cap is not covered - 1 strap wraps around back of rack with 2 others fixed on passenger pegs.
