Those who know me better, also know I'm a bag man, and OCD. I got the 38L rip-stop barrel bag. Its a good size for general use and well made. Decent material and zips. Time will tell how well it will stand up to use and abuse, because that's we what we do with our bags.

If there is any criticism on the one I received, it is that the seamsters will over time get practice and tidy up the stitching. That is just my OCD talking and does not at all take away from the quality and value for money.

If I had to pay for this bag I would still have bought it. Also knowing the attention Pete gives to his customers, I think these bags will still go a long way to fill a gap where we have otherwise been charged too high prices over the years.

A F'ugly is a different sort of bike, the 1150 is boring and the 1100s makes me smile.

...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !

Thanks for the feedback Gerrard.

GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT !!...If it breaks due to workmanship/material failure I fix or replace it at no cost...factor that into the equation as well!!

That applies to ALL my products except samples/prototypes where the prices were heavily discounted.

We are all about functionality rather than aesthetics, but your point is well made and noted.

Ok I'll take the one with the loops....and can you make it from PVC? My wife has 10 cam buckles and strapping left over from an order that I can get quite cheap...where would I be able to have them stitched in E.L.?

Cool.
What colour PVC?
I HAVE ORANGE, BLACK, GREEN AND OLIVE.

See Brynn / Wesley at The Tarpaulin Factory(my old business) on the Westbank..043-7366516. They will sort out stitching.
The KTM has hard luggage....This is for the KLR so black would be fine :thumleft:

OK..black PVC with black webbing loops then?
Will make it up today...courier tomorrow..with you Wednesday.

Grant they are the same height but you wanted black with black webbing.
If you want the orange trim on black let me know asap and I`ll make a plan.

These tailpacks and barrelbags can be customised to YOUR spec`s...in many cases with little or no extra charge.

Everyone has different ideas / requirements and we have the flexibility to adapt to that...we see that as a real plus for our concept.

Big plus this IMO!
I received my bag yesterday, not something "as close as I can find, and adapt to suit" bag, but made to the actual sizes for my requirements. Very happy with the bag  :thumleft:

OK...so I did a ride to check out the damage to Swartberg Pass and then spent a LOT of time sitting looking at my bike and trying to come up with ideas for a soft luggage pannier system.
R & D takes time, but we will get there.....WATCH THIS SPACE !

I need these in my future.

Please add some adjustable straps for over/under the seat. My suggestion is a wide strap that goes over the seat with velcro on the ends and the soft velcro on the bags. You add the strap to the bike and then 'stick the bags at the height and angle you desire.  The bag then needs a few D rings (or clips) which you then use with some flat straps to secure the weight of the bag over the bike at the correct height for each bike.
Even a double D ring on the bag with straps that connect like in a helmet chin strap and velcro back onto itself to stay in place.

Imagine the bags and the centre stap being individual or separable items.
