What suggestion do you have for this use?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
Hey Wattner,

Based on what you say, it sounds like the Overlander 30 would be ideal. The capacity is going to be more than double your existing set-up (15 liters per side vs 4.5 liters per side), but that doesn't mean it'll be any more restrictive. You could either just grab a decent tool roll and stash it in one of the Overlander bags, or - as would be my personal preference - pick up and US-5 and put the tool roll in that, strapping it to the rear fender using the Rack Loop mounts included in the Overlander 30. Like so:

There won't be any fit issues on your XR. And - by sheer coincidence - you can see a the Overlander 30 lined up next to the same bags you have in traveltoad's photo above!

I hope that helps, but please feel free to post up any more questions you may have, or PM me a phone number and I'll be happy to call and learn a bit more about your particular requirements, so we can go through the options in greater detail.
