Same construction as before, but with a versatile "D" ring system that allows fastening to the bike in a number of ways as well as being used to strap additional stuff on top if necessary.


Looks good.
The D-ring system also means you can tie the bag down whilst still having access through the zips.  :thumleft:


That`s one of the main reasons for using this design....
Thanks for the feedback.

I like this idea on sub frame mount.

I have used this on some designs...primarily bikes without racks, as per my DR650
This pic is during manufacture and shows the fastening to the frame and rack at the back...critical to getting it stable.

After that we add the bags to the client`s requirement.....in my case a small pannier , low down  and ahead of the back axle, but far enough back so it doesn`t touch my calves when I stand and with enough space to use a barrelbag across the seat for the light stuff.

Add a barrelbag up to 38litres for clothing, sleeping bag and light stuff....and you still have a reasonably compact setup that makes sand and technical riding much more fun.

You need to add more weight at the back to compensate that TANK up front :)  .............. how many LT is that ?

25litre....no issues with it weight-wise. I like it.

I HATE travelling heavily loaded. I will rather shit off without luxuries that carry too much crap.

My setup also leaves the seat free to get your weight back if necessary, which I like as I tend to move around on the bike quite a lot.

Ha....excellent pic.

I too am a SERIOUS coffee snob and I hear where you are coming from.
What it highlights is that everyone has different expectations and requirements for a trip...something I as a manufacturer need to bear in mind.

Thanks too for your support and feedback over the last year.

Or just live with it and adjust accordingly. With a long range tank like that the dynamics constantly change by up to 20 odd kgs as the tank empties so I would probably treat it as a std tank
Dirty by nature!
