I currently don't have a rear rack on the bike, so the short straps don't work either. I'm leaving for a long weekend Fri. am and am going to rok strap it, which isn't what Kriega wants to hear
I used 4 fixed length rok straps with some butterfly clasps (what wolfman uses to mount their saddlebags) and it came out great.

As to using a US-5 on the front try this, mount the tank adapter sideways, kinda like having just one side of a tank pannier. If it looks like it would work for that then simply get a second tank adapter and US-5 for the other side and have a make shift tank pannier setup.

I ordered the 20/10 combo pack. Are you still doing the ADV shipping discount? I entered the code & still got charged for shipping. Still a good deal but I like to save a bit whenever I can....

With regard to your query on the combos. These are precisely the same as buying the individual packs, with the prices just rounded down. You get all the components you would if you bought the packs separately - I just have them on the site to illustrate the most popular configurations and save folks a few clicks when they're ready to order.

All of which means you'll have everything you need, no matter what you choose to buy.

Give us a shout if I can be of any further service.


Cheers,



Michael

Hi mate,

Musta missed this one. Sorry about that!

To answer your question: yes. Dom, Mike and I had a chat about this a couple of months back. A Kriega roll bag, or duffel has been on the list for a while now. But since Mike had a make his own last-minute rough-and-ready prototypes to carry all the camping gear when he took part in the APC Rally in Australia earlier this year (see below), and I acquired a frequent pillion (otherwise know as a wife) and therefore bought a bigger tent / extra sleeping bags and mats etc, it's [hopefully] been shunted up the order.



As you know, all the gear is designed and tested by the two Kriega owners who won't just knock out the same kind of thing you can get anywhere, so R&D takes a little longer most other companies, but I'm sure that when it does materialize it'll be kick-ass. And, as you now know, for business and personal reasons, I'll be very keen to see it happen ASAP.

As always, stay tuned to this thread, join us on the Book of Face, or sign up to our occasional email newsletter to get the lowdown ahead of the pack.


Cheers,


Michael

Yeah - we are, so not sure what happened there. Let me know your order number and I'll refund the carriage charge to your card.

Yep. Pics or it didnt happen.

Once we've got eyes on target, I'm sure we can sort it. The Loop Straps are critical. I'll send you some once, I know what we're dealing with.


Cheers,



Michael

Thank you

BTW note my Ktm's rear fender area, I utilized a front haul loop due to her large rear end

Just returned from a week of adventure in Kentucky and Tennessee. Had one really nice day and one gray but mostly dry day - rain the rest. A couple days of steady rain and my gear stayed dry. I really like the easy mount and dismount of all the bags. I used a 5 with adapter for a tank bag with a 10 as a tail bag and I don't remember what number the saddlebags are but rack less, I think 15 liter per side.
I have done similar wet trips in the past with wet results - kind of ruins your night trying to sleep in a wet down bag. Anyway, Thanks for an exceptional product.
For this trip, I used a WR250R with a 5 gallon oversize tank.

I actually meant that it's on the list of things to do, as opposed to being done. Hopefully, it won't be too long.

Sorry for any confusion.

Heh michael, question for you. I just bought the overlander 30 for my ktm 690 r and it looks perfect. However, after looking at it, it got me thinking. I traveled about 25k last year to alaska and central america 2 up. Most of the time i have a hard time keeping the front wheel down under acceleration, so i have been looking for a way to transfer some of my heavier weight up front? Buying a second set and using an overlander 30 as a tank pannier set might be just the ticket. Has anyone tried this, maybe using two tank adaptors?
