I'm cheap, but I'll upgrade when I get serious on long travels. But weekend trips around the Ozark's back roads these work just fine for $20 each and $10 on paint.

Got more shots of the system on my 2010 990, but apparently not one from the rear, it seems. Happy to share if you like.

Clearly, I might be considered a tad biased, so I'm not going to push it. But I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the Kriega set-up. And, by all means, feel free to post them in my Vendor's thread, if you'd prefer.


I just wanted to update Michael,

I have now had the OL 60 on my 990R almost a year and a half. A few drops here and there and the kit is holding up well. 1 drop on the pavement and a couple others on the trail.
I've done a few extended trips with the Kriega system and I think it works well. I do throw on a large capacity rear soft bag on the for additional gear.

I think some of the advantages to the Kriega system is you have 4-15L bags to load thus making it easier to keep things more organized. Other factors I considered were weight and overall width of the system. Then the fact that you have a viable way to carry extra fuel and water made it a system that made sense for my needs.
When I looked at cost vs hard luggage it was almost a wash either way.
I'll be putting the OL 60 to good use this year riding the CDR.

Michael,,Maybe you can cut me a deal on a drypack 50 system since your using my bike as one of the Kriega 990 show bikes! Just kiddin',,

Has anyone had any experience with Vern's panniers at http://
I know this is an old post, but yes have verns on my BMW and sorting out fitting for my 990, only real difficulty is that since they were originaly for the bm they have an exhaust cut out which is a bit of a pain for fitting on the 990.
Have to be the best panniers I have ever used, way better than metal mule, TT, Gobi, and Jessies. The lids open rear to front lifing up, which is great for me, I strap a bag accross the top of the panniers and seat, when I need access open up both and just lift. I personaly cant abide the Jessi style where they open to the side, means unpacking to get to them, and you have to lean over the lid to get into the panniers, (never understood that idea).
