I'm considering an upgrade to the current luggage setup on my KTM 500.
Around 30 litres of waterproof capacity would be good, with as little as possible packed above seat height.

Do you have pics of the bag system rolled down to 30 litre capacity and mounted on a plated dirtbike ?

There's more for the big bikes too -



Lower waterproof stowage for tools/heavy stuff.



Custom dry bag shape so that beast still rides well and easy access too






Check out the bald Scorpion on barely thawed desert pudding and throttle position





(thanks KW, Hanksmybuddy & Pedrom for the shots and action!)


more . . .

Enough tease....

For those of us active prepping for travel, give us a timeline. I like what I see and was near ready to outfit a couple bikes for a spring trip to Baja. A timeline for a full description and sales will help.

Oh so right about the bath mat - we towed that thing out there and called AAA to take it back to the owner's garage

This looks good.
However, almost all big bikes of the current generation have a single, big exhaust to the right. (New VStrom, GS LC, KTM1190, Tiger).
How do the bags fit on those?
Are there any plans for an asymmetrical solution (smaller bag on the right and full one on the left)?

the big bags seem to use a pannier rack/frame, which will keep them away from the exhaust

Yes, but I was thinking about keeping them narrow.
A smaller bag for the right side, that sits above the exhaust, would solve that.

I'm in!

WACHS,

Sign me up dood… I have a 2014 690 on its way and I like what I'm seeing. I currently have the Wolfman saddlebags (racks were sold off along with my outgoing DRZ400) still have the bags and was thinking of just getting the new racks for the 690 but…. I like what I'm seeing here and the fact they are waterproof, say what?! I'm totally in man! Riding the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route this summer and this new system looks like it would fit the bill for me. The sooner you let us all know when this is available the better. Keep up the good work!

Shit.....that supposed "clap trap" has seen more adventure and mileage in the past year than your garage queens have or will ever see!

Regarding my bath rug......I can't help that I have a delicate lily white ass and need some comfort during my rides. Should you ever go on a ride of over 20 miles you might be able to understand this concept
