Forgot - sorry!

Looks like tax ‘silly season’, plus scrambling to get my bike put back together for a trip this weekend appears to have gotten the better of me for a while there!

Any road up (as they say in my home county!), it's packed up and ready for our very sweet mail lady to collect tomorrow afternoon. All being well, you'll have it on Friday.


Cheers,


Michael

That's an example of what Crispy can do for a 690. He has a Vendor's thread on here. Top lad, top quality stuff, well priced.

Dead happy with what we worked out for my 990:



Just in case, like...

Do you have any pix of the various bags in a collapsed state...I am looking for a tailbag that would be a permanent mount on my 990, maybe holding just a few items that I dont often need to get to, with the bag mostly collapsed, but one which would expand to, say, a cubic foot and a half (12x12x18)...very approximately. I would rather it had a small footprint when collapsed...like a foot square or less. I currently use a variety of pelican boxes, depending on what I think I need to carry, but always seem to get caught out with the wrong size at the wrong time...

Looking at investing in the Kriega US-system. All other of their products are simply awesome. My selection of luggage is based on several criteria, and the Kriega US simply fulfill them all. Probably do a smaller rollbag on the rear rack as well.

Opinions and pictures of the Kriega US70 combo (US30 + two US20) are rare. Mostly because the stand-alone US30 isn't that old. If you have that setup, please share.

Planning to fit a US30 + two US20 side mounted on the US30 (as in the US70 combo) on my XT660R pillion seat. My concern is that its to big. A US30 + two US10 might be more sensible. That does however make less sense, as the US20 can be made smaller. Doing a US20 + two US10 is an alternative, but doesn't provide much space.

Please share your experience of US70 (30+20+20), US50 (30+10+10) and US40 (20+10+10 combinations to help me decide. There are no store to test-mount these stuff at.

US30 & US20 setup

I use a 30 and 20 on the rear for long trips. My bag, tent, pad and camp clothes fit into the 30 nice and tight. So packing/unpacking is simple. Rok straps help to make the setup off road bulletproof. Oh - they make air drying wet articles a snap too. That's a US10 upfront for my tank bag. Perfect for its low profile and charging electronics on-the-go while keeping them safe and dry.

Can you let us know what you use the most and what all you can fit in each one. I am thinks about the 30 but not sure if it's under or over kill.

How big is your tent(2-3 person) poles too and sleeping bag? If it's not a PIA could you post pics of the item out side of the 30 to get a idea.

Here are my US30 contents from top: Big Angnes pad (long), BA bag in compression dry bag (long), BA 2-person tent in orange light dry bag, Coolmax bag liner, extra foot print, headlamp, pillow. The "long" pad and bag do take up more space than "regular" length. Tent poles and stakes ride in the (not waterproof) tent bag atop my right pannier since it ok for them to get wet. I was mistaken earlier as my camp clothes/shoes, electric jacket and backup hard drive ride inside the US20. Hope this helps.

Just spotted y'all on Airline, small world. Bike looked sweet!!

Edit: and a second time, now I'm sounding like a creep. I was northbound on 10 and saw y'all across the way. Hope y'all didn't end up too soggy, we know the gear is dry!

Ok so here is the deal, I don't have quite the fancy bikes that are shown here that are bright and shiny.

I have had my same Kriega luggage since my bike was new 2 years ago. These bags have far surpassed my expectations. I originally got them because I wanted something different.

I beat the crap out of my bike. It is ridden very hard in the rocks, tumbled and flipped down hills and unfortunately crashed hard more than once. I have ridden in downpours, exteme cold and 100+ degree weather.

Here is how they look today:

This one got a small tear from tumbling through some sharp rocks about a year ago, a little silicone and it's good as new.



Here are the rest of them as of this morning.



Please note the smashed and gouged exhaust. That's what caused the other one to tear I just swapped the bag to other side.



These are the only bags on my bike that remain 100% waterproof. In an emergency, you could remove and fill the liners with water. These bags have been bombproof! And the Rack Loops work perfectly every time when really loading my beast down.

My other bags, while nice, end up getting everything wet in any kind of damp weather or washing my bike.





The other products such as my R15 backpack is the most comfortable pack I have ever owned. I'm going to get the R25 when I'm ready to purchase another.

And lets not forget the pull straps. WAY BETTER than the "tuggers" brand. You can actually get a grip on these in wet muddy weather. Kriega has some really great engineers who obviously ride. Sorry, no bags on this bike. Purpose built for hard core single track.



And hiking trails LOL




So lets get on about what I don't like about the bags. WHOOPS! Not the fault of the bags, But when going through fast whoops the pendulum effect of the bags makes the bike a handful. But that would be with any saddle bags not just Kriegas.

Another thing to note is I have had my suspension sprung and valved for my bike all bagged and fueled up as you see in the photos. When I strip off the bags and put on the stock 2 gallon tank, my Beta is transformed into a full blown, hard edged race machine.

Thank you Michael for selling me a great product!

Kriega tuggers!!

I'll echo Ballistic Chris's experience of the Tuggers. I've used competitors versions, homemade versions, etc. The Kriega tuggers are head and shoulders above in terms of usage and quality.



On this bike poking out underneath the tube bag. I really appreciate the way the Kriega tuggers keep their shape (better seen in Chris's pic above) providing an effortless handle to reach out and grab. I've even used it tow the bike up ledges with webbing. Stout stuff!!.

Stretching the arms prepping for yanking on the Kriega tugger to get out of this quicksand.



Edit: Chris that's an interesting method to keep the exhaust quiet on the 300. I bet it's stealthy for poaching areas you may not technically be allowed to ride?

THANK YOU! What a great idea for the mounting the Kriega tugger. I'm going to have to try that out under my tube bag.
