Hahaa!

He wasn't joking either, folks!

Order received and greatly appreciated. You will now have the very first Rally Pack released into the American wild, just as soon as I get 'em in a week or so's time. The rest of your gear will ship today and I've refunded your shipping fees 'cause it seems you neglected to request /use the ADV free shipping code.

Cheers,



Michael

I challenge anyone to find a vendor who sends $$$ back....because the purchaser was too stupid to enter a code....

KTM 690, Rear Rack and Overlander 30's

I've got a KTM 690. Overlander 30. US 20 with a US 10 piggy backed on it. I've not used the Overlander 30 yet.

Is there any advantage on the US 10 & 20 riding on a rear tail rack as opposed to all if it riding on the fender hooked to the Kreiga hook buttons, and not using a rear rack (saving a little weight)???

I've had it all mounted to the rear tail rack, (Tourtech), but I'm tempted to remove the rack and go back to the OEM grab bars.

Dagwood I've used the hook buttons for awhile on trips now and have never had any issues with their working or reliability. Using the bags without the rack would give you a lower profile as the bags could then sit flush onto the rear fender. Not sure how tall you are but the 690's are taller than my 500 and swinging a leg over them was awkward for me. Anything to lower the height of obstacles to swing a leg over would be a bonus for me. Of course you'll also save the weight as you noted.

One thing racks offer is something for which to pull on to removed bikes from mud, pick them up etc. However if you re-mount the OEM grab rails I see no downside to removing the rack.

Like FTB pointed out, a rack has no real advantage for bags, only for seriously solid stuff like a winch or fuel cans etc. In fact, a rack not only adds weight (and cost), but can increase the chances of subframe damage if and when you throw the bike up the trail.

Hope that helps.


Cheers,



Michael

Hi Michael, can you tell me about the orange "dp" dry pack tag that's on some Kriega bags.

Is it a third party waterproof membrane like Goretex or Riessa that you guys incorporate into the production of [some of] your bags?

Hi mate,

The orange 'dp' label is Kriega's own doing - a designation for items that incorporate the Drypack construction and are therefore 100% waterproof.




Cheers,



Michael

R25 Backpack

I've gone on a bike diet, from a loaded up 990S with hard bags to a 690 with Overlander 30 and a US 10 & 20 on the tail. So, I'm hooked and a Kriega Konvert.

And, tho I haven't gone on a overniter yet, it all packs pretty well and I can get most everything in the bags, but I think I gonna have to go with a backpack to carry my personal gear.

I have a old Otega (or something like that) left over from my woods riding days, but it makes my shoulders hurt after all day riding and is hard to get over my winter Olympia AST Jacket.

So, I realize that everyone is made different, but should I expect the R25, med loaded to have all day riding comfort?? And how does it fit over a Large, winter, padded up jacket and liner such as the Olympia AST??

Thanks,

I would recommend the R20 because of the smaller strap system on the chest. I think the R25 would be fine (good) for sport bike riding... but for dirt biking or dual sport I much prefer the R20 (I have both).

And yes, you can load that sucker up with anything you want and ride all day in comfort.

Does the overlander15 come with the mounting buttons and bolts? I'm considering getting one and building a single pack mount similar to the adv platform and wonder if I'll need to figure out mounting the pack to my platform, or if the parts come with the kit.
Thanks
