This guy is already in Capetown! 17 000 miles on the little CRF250l with zero problems!

I watch a vid on his luggage review. He used the Kriega soft luggage system with their new saddle strap to hold the bags inplace,. Looks really good after 17k miles. Not to much sagging, etc.. No frames required..

Edit: its actually more of a saddle base to mount the bags on.. Can't post a pic now! Anybody?

This is a really cool luggage system!

If you have an iPhone email the photo to yourself and make it a small or medium image, it will tell you what size it is, the forum has a maximum of 500kb.  Use the image you mailed to yourself to upload


Or a Samsung, you can use the stock email app and there is also an option to resize to small, same thing, email to yourself and post an image of less than 500kb


If he is in Cape Town, set up an evening, would love to buy him a beer.  I enjoyed promoting his videos on this and another forum

In the beginning of this video he looked so sad I didn't know whether to keep watching.

That's the thing about travelling in Africa. Its also an emotional journey, from happy, angry, sad, disgust and everything in between all in one day!.. Also remember he is very young!..

I dont believe so at present at least; the costs to import and then sell are prohibitive - if you do ever import, just be sure to add 35% duty (or thereabouts) and 15% VAT, if you import it through formal channels.

Bag made outside Europe 30% duty & 21% VAT, bags with European proof of origin 20% duty & 19,5% VAT

Slight advantage for EU made bags

Are you sure he was already in Cape Town, he spoke in his video about making it to be in time for the burning man festival which I assume is Oppikoppi?

Hi Meurig, sorry I only see this post now. Yes quite sure! I saw a video of him doing the soft luggage review in Cpt with table mountain in the background. He said that the luggage system endure the whole Africa trip without a problem...
