Great report! Question: what brand are those saddlebags, they're leather, I guess?

I am in the states now til July though. It is a fantastic country for riding.
Thank you very much, I wil definitely check it out. However, our aim is not only to ride but also to visit all the interesting places. It is going to be after this summer and I will definitely shoot you an email. It would be fantastic ride together or at least to have a beer with a fellow adv rider

Greetz, Hans.
Yes they are leather. I made them myself. They work great and are so much better for the bike then hard luggage. Offroad, the hard luggage is really hard on your subframe. But the saddlebags distribute the weight over the seat.
