Enough to camp in style. 30 deg sleeping bag, Exped 9 mat, Warbonnet hammock with tarp, a few changes of undies and socks, flip flops, a little freeze dried food, tools, tube and pump. Water in backpack, plenty of places to tie on a jacket liner and my small camp chair and I'm ready to travel to places unknown...

Just got to get ride of the Wolfman tank bag, doesnt match :)

How does the rear end of that 690 hold up to all that weight back there?

Have you braced the rear or done any other mods to support the weight?

I like the looks of the Rally Raid tanks on that bike!

Cheers

I did the upper and lower RR bolt replacement.

The 2 tail bags, a US20 and a US10 are actually not a large as the pic displays.

I packed this up to see how it all fits. When I actually go on a campout, I will repack it and put more lighter stuff in the top. Right now I have my sleeping bag in a side bag and my tool kit in the top, not the best weight distribution for that bike. I also have the tool kit in a US5 and its inside another bag. It is made to mount on the front fender, but I dont really like it there as it does block the headlight some. I'd like to find a better place to mount it, instead of carring it in another pack.

So, I know the weight on the rear of these bikes is a concern, but I'm going to go with what I've got and if I do get into a rough section, meybe take it a little easier.

I've got a Holan top box on my Tiger 800XC and would like to use a US10 on top of it for lightweight stuff (tent or sleeping bag stuffed inside). The dimensions of the US10 look perfect, size-wise, but can someone tell me the distance between the straps? On the box, the mount points are 12" apart, front-to-back, and 9.5" apart, side-to-side. Also, does anyone have a suggestion for a secure mount to the existing points on the box?


(In the background you can see my Overlander 60s along with a whole bunch of other stuff...)

Too cold to look for very long, but...

It looks like the US10 is 7.5" center to center, give or take a quarter..

And the 20 is about a inch wider.

If anyone has a lead on a pre-2012 US-20 for sale let me know (in excellent condition). I have a 20 and two 10s. Just bought some side racks so I can mount a 20+10 on each side.

Thanks.

I have a brand new one, still in the package. Pre 2012 model. I requested it from Michael recently but it wasn't the "exact" one I wanted.

Some of the pre 2012 bags had a second set of D rings on them, on the same bit of material as the female buckles. I even showed him a picture of what I wanted, he sent me one that did not have those, which annoyed me.

Anyway, it's brand new, still in the bag.

Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks HaChayalBoded

Looks like that bag isn't what I'm looking for. I also need a pre-2012 with the 4 D-rings. If I find more than 1 I'll let you know!

Anyone?

Here is a shot of the US20 + US10 on the new side rack I just installed on my KLR. Once I can get another 20 I'll have the same setup on the other side.

How did you strap them on? I'm still convinced this could be the best setup going. I wish I spent more time trying to perfect the straps before giving up. I'd prefer the opening on the top though, rather than the side.

This is the rack. The top rack is the one you would be looking at on my bike.
I wove the straps through the support bars. I also wrapped the US10 strap around that top bar instead of just having it sit on top of the US20 w/o any additional support. Once I have another 20 for the other side I'll get some additional straps and 'tie' both sides together over the saddle for some extra security. I've read so many stories of guys having racks break. I don't want to be one of them, although they mostly were all using hardcases.

I posted an update on my experience with my Overlander 30 bags here, update is post #36:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...0#post23200270


Upside is I have enjoyed the packing convenience and waterproof capabilities over the Giantloop Coyote. Downside is I have had some issues with the Overlander 30 systems mounting system as outlined in the thread above. Michael and i have been in constant communication regarding the issue and his last email to me stated that one of the owners of the company is on top of the situation. Looking forward to further refinements on the system from Kriega.

I have begun my own modifications to the baggage system and will update the thread in a few days on my findings.

Having fun in Southwest Cambodia with the bags.

US10 as a tank bag

Michael.

I am considering buying a US10 and the tank adapter and us the US10 as a tankbag, as I need a waterproof one.
Do you think this US10 will be too big as a tank bag on a Honda CRF250L?

Cheers
