Any reports of fitment on a WR250R with a stock exhaust?

How long till the bigger ones are out for the likes of the 950/990?
There was talk of a waterproof version?

Sweet. If you can post some pics of it fitted, would be great (I saw youre mate's pics already - didnt get that good an idea).
Also, how do you think it will get on with the KTM luggage racks (that I use as crash bars).
Will the fastening still require drilling plastic for the 9x0?

Cool - maybe it'll fit the G650Xch as well?

Easy on-off? If so, mark me down for a pre-order.

Hey I want one as well- can we say that I was first? Really though I can't wait to get mine. Looking forward to leaving the boxes behind.

I've got an 07 640 Adventure, should I be waiting for the new design to come out, or will the existing bag fit? I really like the idea of the new bag being fully waterproof though, but 60 - 80 litres sounds pretty big. Which do you think would fit best?

Ta,

Adrian

Hi Wach,

What's a week, I can wait a week for pictures. Re which design might be best, I want to use the bag for long desert trips in Australia and the tracks vary from good dirt roads to rough as guts and bulldust which gets into everything. I've been using Ortlieb roll top bags which are water/bulldust proof and good but I'd love to piss the racks off and get a bit more crash resistance.

Do you envisage the new design will be available in Australia in May? Will they be quick release?

Ta,

Adrian
