So how does it then quickly detach from the bike? You don't show that on your website.

I think you use a 1/4 inch quick release ratchet and the proper socket size!

fyi for those interested, I have the same KTM fender bag pictured above (it is the new 690 bag and not the 640 bag). It has a quick detach mount that looks like a horseshoe. I mounted it on a 950SE Touratech rack that is fastened to the 690 rack, but it can be mounted directly to the 690 rack of course. On the front I have a Wolfman Explorer Light tank bag. Also using a Touratech cross bar to which I have mounted a Garmin GPS and 12V socket.

I just got my Giant Loop bag in the mail the other day, very impressed, plenty of storage. A lot bigger than I thought.

I suppose you could use quick release fasteners, if you want to remove it quick. I am using a spare fender, just take the whole thing off when I am not using the bike for camping trips.

Ortlieb QRL saddlebags

Woo hoo! My KTM side luggage rack arrived earlier this week and the bar sizes on it are small enough that my Ortlieb QRL (quick release) saddlebags fit perfectly. I'm so stoked!

The Ortlieb's are awesome because they're truly waterproof; no other soft saddlebag that I know of is so. They're also hugely durable; mine have been through a number of tumbles when attached to my KLR and they're still in one piece and waterproof. I prefer soft bags because hard bags have a tendency to injure your legs in some kinds of accidents. Plus, they're relatively inexpensive at less than $100 each from Aerostich (see link above).

I think you'll have a hard time finding a better set of saddlebags for the $450 that the OEM rack plus Ortliebs run.

Does it look like there will be enough distance between the muffler and the Ortlieb bags so they won't melt?

Post pic of your setup if possible, it looks like a good way to go.

Thanks

Took pics of my set up this a.m. Will post this evening. I also have the Euro LED tail light and Electrosport LED turn signals. I also have the SM windscreen, which others have added (see the 690 merged thread). Running a Wings pipe.

Here are some quick pics. There's 2.75" of clearance between the muffler and the left bag, which should be sufficient even with the heat from the catalytic converter. The bags in their unloaded state make the bike 32" across at the rear. The bags can probably expand 1-2" when stuffed. They're offset from the centerline of the bike by 5/8" to the left because of the muffler.

Set up pics as promised. Thanks to Ron at KTMTwins.com for suggesting the use of the 950SE luggage rack. Easy to mod by drilling/filing a few holes so it can be fastened to the hardparts luggage brackets. The way I set it up allows me to quickly remove the fender bag if I just want to use the rack.

Doubt it. Also, bag isn't waterproof but comes with a rain cover.

Anyone know of a tail bag that will fit a laptop and attact to the fender rack?

On an unrealted note, I wonder if there is any news on the Metal Mule rack/panniers.
