The only thing missing is the Renazco ergo seat that will be here on monday.

The reason I chose the Adventure Spec skid plate was for the extra protection for the cases and brake cylinder. Maybe I'll pick up a set of carbon case savers though. Better safe than sorry.

I've got enough space to scoot back and get on the cushy part of the seat and the middle of the Great Basin is packed lightly to allow for space to move in technical situations. I easily could move it further back still if I wanted to.

The bag up high is my sleeping bag inside a waterproof compression sack. I found that it is much more enjoyable to have a clean compression sack inside the tent so I wrap it in a plastic bag. The tent and camp chair are in the blue bag. Tools and Stove/Food are in the lower side sections and a little bit of food water and first aid are in the middle section over the seat. Maybe a little laptop too.

As an added bonus, I have fallen hard with this setup too. I've got a couple scratches, a small tear and seam seperation on the GL bag. All completely understandable considering the abuse....Point is I am still using the same bag, expect to for many more years and the 690 is lovin life much better without all the dents and scratches.

I'm going to post a video of riding trails with this bag attached to the bike. It isn't as loaded as this but, none the less is on the bike.

i really packed my gl bag on the top too...maybe thats why i didnt have enough room to scoot arnd....i might just throw out some more stuff from the mid section and just carry the tent as u have done....
but i think i still need to position the GL bag further out....its the gravel fast section where u need to feel the rear brake to slide is where i need the extra seat space....

Posted pic of top box earlier in thread but tested on 10 day trip to Alps (10 points for guessing what pass in background). Box worked perfect, kept thing dry and in place and just take out inner bag when park at hotel.

Bit off topic, but was not sure how well 690 would work in up to 400km/250miles a day. But no need to worry, it worked brilliant and had more fun than on my superduke. I had no problem following ny buddies on sports bikes even on mor open/wide roads but the narrower/twistier it got, the easier I pulled away from them Not even stock seat bothered me...but it's rubbish on autobahn (luckily we cheated taking ferry/train most of the way to Munich).

The Rally Raid UK luggage rack looks the business.

Has anyone tried the new Kriega luggage rack?

RR tail and soft luggage frame

Nice looking setup. Thats exactly what I ordered a few days ago to put on my 2012 690 enduro. Also have the GL great basin bag. Will soon find out how it all works.

If you could send more pictures that would be Let me know how they work out for you.

The two together seem very robust; I have man-handled the bike using just the racks.

I you want- I have a few other photo's if you need better shots?
