Hi Rickus

We are still developing the product but will not be manufacturing heat shields.

We are trying to develop something for plastic bikes and those without racks or crashbars and it`s extremely difficult to make one size to fit all bikes.
That said it is in our interest to get as close to satisfying all potential customers as possible and will keep you updated on this thread.

Make the seat over part adjustable with valcro
A F'ugly is a different sort of bike, the 1150 is boring and the 1100s makes me smile.

Your point is valid Gerrard but I don`t want to do it on this model as the target market for these generally have seat that are narrow and the whole purpose is to give the rider the option of being able to use the whole seat on more technical terrain without catching your pants on a double layer of velcro and material.


We will be using velcro on the bigger soft panniers which will be aimed at the bigger D/S bikes.
We will get to a prototype in the next few weeks.

Internal soft bags for hard panniers / topboxes.
R650.00 each and made to fit your pannier exactly. I just need the measurements from you.
Easy access to pannier contents when on the bike via the double zip system and access to contents via a 3rd zip (like a suitcase) when removed from the pannier box.

Same lifetime guarantee as all our products....

SIMPLE...FUNCTIONAL...AFFORDABLE.

We have been off the radar a bit as we have a few new products we will be launching shortly as well as the finalization of the website.
In the meantime we are slowly managing to build up stock of the popular items, which is not always easy as we are busy with custom bags virtually on a daily basis...like this very bright set of bags: a 38litre barrelbag and a tentbag made to the customer`s specs.

Just a suggestion : make the new one slightly bigger than the tentbag that the tent came in. It`s almost impossible to get them to fit back into those bags once you have unpacked it for the first time.

Come back to me with sizes. Should be R300.00....PVC or Ripstop canvass.

OK...the first fitting of a "u" type bag.

Will also be doing a bigger volume model but there seems to be more interest in the smaller, more compact type that can have a tailpack or barrelbag as an optional fitting at the same time so that is our focus for now.

The bigger volume bag in the "U" shape WILL be forthcoming....let`s just get this one right first !!

I am personally amped to test this model as it appeals to my type of riding with the weight in front of the rear axle , low down and snug against the bike.

WATCH THIS SPACE !!

Made up two fuel carrier`s to Rickus`s specs. Pretty functional..he wants to carry 4 x 2litre coke bottles with extra fuel.
Once the fuel if used he disposes of the bottles and folds up the Ripstop carrier.

Quite a lot of `custom` requests coming through ....what`s on YOUR wish list?

Yes...came out well. Not a fashion item, but functional and simple and you are , after all , not on a breakfast run to the local Wimpy.
Let me know about getting them to Namibia.

What's the progress on those side panniers for enduro type bikes?

I have a prototype I`m testing this weekend on a variety of terrain and will then possibly get some riders to test them.
What we have found is the one size does not fit all and while the first prototype fits my DR 650 well it does not work satisfactorily on some of the other bikes, particularly with big exhausts on one side and broader seats.

They are all problems that can be solved but this takes time and I don`t have the luxury of doing this fulltime as there is not enough volume to my sales yet.
The other issue is that I can`t let half-baked product onto the market as there will be a ton of wiseguys branding Nomad as `cheap local crap` and clearly this is not conducive to building a brand.


Don`t worry...as soon as they are ready I will plaster ads all over this forum.
