Look at post #350. You will see some straps installed on my ProMoto Billet rack. or look at #578 of my Hodaka's small rack.............drilling is not required!

You can even just wrap the straps around the rack and back onto themselves if needed.

Yep.

What he said.

That said, the idea behind the 30 is that no additional hardware is required. With the Rack Loops enabling the Overlander 30 and our US packs to be mounted directly to the bike, there's not much reason to have the weight and expense of a rack, unless you just feel you really need one.


Cheers,



Michael

Huh!!? Someone sold their R25!? Poor chap musta had to sell his bike too!

The R25 is pretty much ready to rock as it is, but these Kube Pocket things are extremely useful:

Yup. Sits right in the outer pocket, attached at the top with a clip or loop, (which fitment is in there depends on how old the R25 and reservoir are, but you can always get a fit). The tube just routes out of the top of the zipper and over your shoulder. So, now I come to think of it, I need to send you one of these to secure the tube to the front of the harness.


I'll get one in the mail tomorrow.


Cheers,


Michael

I just picked up a few more Kriega bits today and while going through my new R15 and putting the bladder in, I noticed there isn't anything to secure the hose with on the front of the pack. Am I missing something, or do I need to do up something like the photo below? The bag's going to get a workout on the dirtbike and I'm not a fan of being whipped all day by hydration line.


Here's the photo (I thought the iPad was supposed to take decent photos?) of the current collection. Adding another US10 as soon as the heat dies down from this last purchase.

My "touring" setup usually consists of a couple days worth of clothing and my credit card, so I don't imagine I'll need much more. Right now I've got enough gear for the street and the R15, US5 and tool roll are going to be on dirt bike duty. This weekend should be a good test.

Well just had a huge box of Kriega bits show up.



Loads of gear to go through. On initial glance I'm very impressed with the quality of stiching and materials utilized, first class stuff.

Sadly off to England for two weeks tomorrow so no real time to take a proper look at everything. Can't wait until my return.

The key word is "need".

Seriously, that kit covers so many travel options that it is unlikely you will need much more.
