Looks good! Are you using a rack or does this strap to passenger foot rests?

690 luggage

Got the GL Mojave. Mounted the rear onto the KTM stock handles with provided hardware from GL. Tied off the front to the trellis frame.
Tool bag is in front of fuel cap. Standing..the MX boots just touch the bags. The saddlebags are on top of the stock handles a bit.

Mounted Wolfman Explorer Lite Tank Bag.

Planning on getting a Great Basin Dry Bag from GL. Going to strap it inline
one wrap at the rear over bag and under fender. Front strap, over front of bag, will tie off to KTM handles.

Bag is for sleeping bag, tent and pad.

Here my bag.

It's made in hard nylon, the shape is wrapping the bike
so no rack is needed.

It does not interfere with the fuel cap.

It's about 25/30lt .Complete with the straps.

2012 KTM 690 Kriega system, non-rack

Here's what I've decided to try. I didn't like the Giant Loop that necessitated a heat shield on the exhaust and sat on top of the gas cap (although least of the issues) and didn't like the need to use the passenger pegs as mounting points. My objective is to carry the gear I need but keep the bike itself as light a possible. So, in this case, the SW-Motech rack is used with the optional detachable rack plate. On this is mounted Kriega US20 with US10 on top of that. Since I already had the 20 and 10 which I used with my XR, I didn't have to buy these. But you might consider just getting one US30 if you are starting from scratch. The new addition is the Kriega Overlander, a no-rack saddlebag system that looks similar to the Wolfman. I have not used them on any long trips yet but for the short haul and pushing, pulling and jerking around on them, it seems like they will be adequate for Adventure-dirt expeditions. Here you are:

This bag is tightly mounted and doesn't move. But because of the shape of the left side of the bike and exhaust, it mounts up higher. However it does not interfere with legs either seated or standing. If I loosen the lower left corner slightly, it will mount lower and more backward but is not as secure. Will have to play with it on the long haul to get a real feel for it.

Back view: The Kriega mounting loops slip through the slots in the detachable rack. The loose ends are just laying on top of the tail light. These would normally be cut off so there would be no excess.

Additional view of the right side: The weight is low, the bag does not flop up, out, or forward. It's tight. I will probably carry the tools on this side.

That's it for now. Final thoughts: The Overlander is 15L each side. Completely waterproof. Very well made like the rest of their bags. While the left bag is near the exhaust it is held considerably away from it by the Carbon fiber shield and the left plastic itself. The Akra Ti can doesn't get very hot anyway. In fact the left plastic side cover is laying right on the can and it is not even melted at the point of contact.

Last one:
