Thank you for any update you may have.
I have some water proof material on order and should have it in a few days. After I have a chance to play around with it, I'll post a message letting you know the results.

Good news! Can you post some pics -- sewn seams, etc -- after you play around with it a bit? Also, do you have specs on what the fabric is, weight and material? Any thoughts on seam seal tape?

The fabric I have ordered is a 200 Denier 100% nylon with a heat sealable lining on the back. At 200 Denier, it's not quite as heavy duty as the 1000 Denier Cordura that I typically use but I'll see how tough it is once I get it!

KLR bags

Took a ride today on the KLR to test test the bags at speed. Got up to 70mph (actual) . The bags were rock solid on the SW Motech bars. They even block the wind off my legs. They do crowd the hiway pegs just a tad. But still very workable.

These came out just perfect!

Thanks

How bad do you think they scratch up the plastics?

No, that's my tire-change tool, etc. duffel. I had it with me that last ride we went on ... but I guess ya didn't notice. See the first post in this thread for the Agri tube bags. I actually stuff a tool roll in my Agri tube, but that probably eats up too much room in there.

Edit: Actually, now I can't find those Agri bags in this thread either ...
