Requiring the advice of luggage experts - Kriega or Wolfman?
Luggage experts of ADV, this one is for you.
I have a CBR f4i (sports bike) that I do a lot of distance riding with and need to pick up some soft luggage. I've narrowed down my search to a few different options and really wanted some experienced opinions.
I'm trying to stay around the 200$ range, so I won't be looking to go all out. I've had soft saddlebags in the past and was nonplussed with them. I don't really like having to throw them on and off and having them be so unwieldy off the bike. So I've been looking into variations of tail bags.
I think the wolfman above is a really great compromise bag between saddlebags and tail bag. Plus, it has 45L capacity, which coupled with my backpack should be more than enough room. I traveled the world with a 40L backpack for a year, so I think this would be more than enough. However, it is not waterproof and I would have to buy an extra liner.
I've heard nothing but rave reviews of the Kriega. It's not as comprehensive an option as the Wolfman, plus I would lose 15 liters of room. Still looks nice, is waterproof, and has the option for adding more bags in the future.
Finally, I can't find them state-side, but if anyone has one (or knows where I can find one), there was this bag by Jofama.
So, thoughts overall? Additionally, if anyone has any of these bags (or similar ones) for sale, let me know!
