Hey Chris, I was joking about the triangle. I'm sorry to hear that your bottle of hooch got waylaid by customs too-I guess we both will just have to go over there for a little riding?

I was really dissapointed about that....
About the "Dualsport Croatia tour powered by domestic hand made liquor", there were some rumors that the next "Dakar" might pass through Croatia and I see you two as ideal riders for the new factory KTM team "Sljivovica KTM racing team"....special camelbacks are designed for the team as we speak...

Whatz up? You on?

Here are the racks I made for my soft panniers.
1/2" 10 gauge tube easy to work with. I tigged them and machined some spigots to go in original holes but you dont need to go that far.

Do you have any pics of it mounted on the bike? They say it is made of a waterproof material, but is it actually waterproof?

luggage - speedbag

Yep - I'll load a pic of it on

http://picasaweb.google.com/KTMPETE/...gAndBashPlate#

and yep its totally waterproof. I just did a 5000km ride with it and its all good. I ended up stuffing the top pocket zip (my fault) so am going to change that for industrial velcro and snap clips. It holds 100lt and is very light + not as wide as panniers ....also not as secure. All in all Im very happy with its perfomance.

Cheers Pete

My Packs

The is my cunningly designed Adv pack system, I’m a saddler, and do a bit in the canvas trade, having more time now. I bit the bullet. Got a base made. 4mm alum, to suit the standard rack. Made PVC 680gram rip stop cover, which secured to the base. Put a heavy coil open ended zip, which attaches to the pack. Assorted web that also attaches to the pack and some Velcro as well. I can never be accused of under engineering anything. I though a twin packs system would be the best. The top takes tent, sleeping bag and air mattress. The bottom pack takes stove cooking stuff, clothes ECT, The things you need are in the tank pack, and the fairing bag, phone, camera. Being a saddler I had to do a water satchel, it seams to work well. I think you could do it with the fuel bladders. The material used is a core spun 440gran rip stop canvas. This is very strong waterproof but not to heavy, is general used for truck tarps. It isn’t cheep but when I looked at some of the packs on the market, and what they were made of. This is a work in progress, so I will be making some changes as I go
