Definitely.

Let's blame it on Barley. Who can resist a dog in a sidecar!?

Mike,
do the rack loops only include the loops and hardware? ie: you need to also purchase the alloy hook straps?

Hi levain,

The Rack Loops are a stand-alone product, so what you see in the photos on the site is what you get i.e. this:



Alloy Hook Straps are included with all US packs of 10 liters and above, and are also available to purchase separately. The older US packs without Alloy Hook Straps will still work with the Rack Loops, but they are a little less conveninent (you'll need to remove one of the male quick-release clips on each straps and thread they through the Rack Loops, then reattach it).

This is no big deal if you're not going to be wanting to ride without the bag attached very often, but the Alloy Hooks are a tidier solution.

The only exception is the US-5, which need to be attached with a set of our Cam Straps (due to the standard straps being designed to be bolted directly onto the bike and are therefore too short for a Rack Loop application). Like so:



That said, you can attach pretty much attach anything you like with any appropriate 25mm straps. Comme ça:



Hope that helps!


Cheers,



Michael

Hey Michael, are the straps slightly different between the US30 and the US20? And if so... why?

I am looking at these two photos on your website:

Hi mate,

The strapping system on the US-10 and US-20 is now identical that that on the US-30. It's just that Kriega has yet to update the official photos of the smaller packs, which is why the old 'compression strap' system is shown in some photos on the website.

I got your email about the other things - I'll give you a call in a few.


Cheers!



Michael

I just got an R35 and a US-20. And I have a US-5 on the way thanks to the Kriega rebate. Wonderful bags so far!

I do wish there was another mounting option if you're using a rack. Something a bit more permanent looking. The webbing loops are OK, but they ended up being a bit too long for my use. And when the bag is off the bike, the loops hang down pretty far and flop around.

So I ended up making my own solution, at least for now. Seems to work OK. This is an SW-Motech rack on an F800GS.

Thanks again for making such a wonderful product. There was no second choice.

Looks good! For a minor aesthetic you could put the loops on the underside of the rack (leave the button head bits on top).

Or get some of these......................

http://www.kriega.us/rack-loop-endur...uggage-mounts/

I am in the process of trying to figure out the best position for the Rack Loops on my ProMoto Billet rack that is installed on my KTM 640. The Rack Loops will look similar to your install when I am done.

Cheers

I would like to do that, but it's not as easy as it sounds. The holes I'm using are actually threaded, so I'd have to run the bolts up from the bottom. Two problems with that. First, the bolts would stick out, though I could probably find shorter ones. Second, and more importantly, the threaded ferrules that are welded to the rack extend beyond the bottom surface of the rack. So there's no surface to "clamp" the webbing. I could maybe use two washers to clamp the webbing.

Droptarotter, I like that idea, and they're beautiful, but they're pricey. And again because the holes I'm using are already threaded, I'm not sure they'd work. I could potentially use some of the other holes that aren't threaded. Hmmm.

Hey Mike, you know what I like, or think would be cool?

I have been using the heck out of the little rectangular stuff bags, the Kubes It doubles as either the tire kit, or toilet kit, depending on the trip

But importantly, I think it definitely keeps things from going loose in the backpacks. If I had three of them, there wouldnt be any loose stuff. The backpack becomes a stuffsack for smaller, nested ones. And each pack could be used independtly, without going spelunking in the pack just to find one thing.
I could either pull out the toilet kit OR the tire change kit, OR the maps, compass, keys and phone.

Just a word out to you guys looking to get a backpack. get two or three of the Kubes. It just helps my organisation a lot, because I tend to get a little spread out

It's funny you mention that... I just ordered a Kube 1 to check out for just that reason.
