The bike is in hibernation, no photos from the rear, sorry. Less wide than the handlebars, which I find important!

Likes: the fact that when I dropped the bike totally on its side there was no damage. I like the separate compartmentation of 4 bags, gives me a chance to split things up. I get my tent including poles in 1, sleeping bag, liner, airbed and pump in another, 2 water bottles and food in the third, cooking, washing and medical in the 4th.

The boards attach with machined alloy brackets and clamps, I swapped the clamps for M6 screws for extra security and carry an 8mm ratchet ring to remove quickly.

No dislikes, I guess in theory they are less secure than locked boxes, but if someone wants to screwdriver a lock or prise open an aluminium case they will do.

I've got Gobi's panniers on mine at the moment which have been great but I'm now looking for a narrower set up with more space. After clouding a couple of cars this summer...

Has anyone had any experience with Vern's panniers at http://http://www.projectvnd.com

Not familiar with the Vern's but they look like copies of the jesse design - as for width, the jesses are the most narrow setup I found in hard cases - the racks are tucked in very tightly...

Peanuts thanks for the feedback! Yes, slimmer than the handlebars is what I care about as well...some of the other setups are quite bulky, something I cannot tolerate.

The price is a bit off-putting but I think the design more than makes up for it. I also like the compartmentalized concept rather than a big bag of sh*t.

Hello gents,

This thread - and request in particular - just popped up on my radar, so I hope you won't mind if I chime in with the requested photo of the arse-end of an Overlandered 990:


(photo credit Inmate Wantajustride. More here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...878&page=1057)

Got more shots of the system on my 2010 990, but apparently not one from the rear, it seems. Happy to share if you like.

Clearly, I might be considered a tad biased, so I'm not going to push it. But I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the Kriega set-up. And, by all means, feel free to post them in my Vendor's thread, if you'd prefer.


Cheers,



Michael

This is the system I want, but unfortunately will have to probably wait a long time to get. I sure wish it was more affordable.

That's perfect, thanks!

I always seem to forget about water when planning my camp setup and I think that's is great with the fuel and water Rotopax on there.

ooh, that's a nice looking setup right there. I really like my Gobis as far as hard cases are concerned, but if I'm riding hard off road, I typically unlock the latches to the rack and just strap them on so that they can break free if I hit something, which has happened before. The only real downside is that because they are a dual-wall design, there isn't quite as much room inside as you might expect. I don't have any experience with the top case.

That's 3x 15L Drypacks + 2x 1-gallon RotopaX on the sides with the 4th 15L pack on the rear rack.

Cheers,


Michael

Wolfman Expedition dry saddlebags work wonderfully at a reasonable price point. I know many 990 owners that use them. I'm working on a custom set up for quick removal of the rotopax from my saddlebag rack, as in no bolts, or I can mount them on my crash bars if I choose. I'll post up pic's when they get back from powder coat.

Just ordered my first half of this system yesterday. I'm really excited to get the bike dialed in.
