Just got Perun's rack -- Serbia to Portland Oregon in 5 days --

There are plenty of photos of his rack, but I wanted to share how well it integrates with the Altrider Hemisphere softbag system. The rearward clips on the Altrider bag fits perfectly in the strap slots -- kinda like this rack was designed just for the bag. This positions the rear of the bag just in front of the gas cap and provides easy access.





I'll post up more photos once I get the bike loaded up for an upcoming trip.

Thanks Perun!

Thank you very much for the photos of Perun's rack with the Altrider Hemisphere. I was on the fence wrt that rack (the PO of my bike bought the TT rack, but it's crap) and now that I have the Hemisphere, it's great to know that Perun's rack works so well with the Hemisphere.

Gen - how do you like the Hemispher'se ?

Are you using the Saddlebag or the Panniers ?

Did you compare that with the Giant Loop Siskiyou's - like
Noah was using ?

Ttime4four - looks like you have the saddlebag set up - correct ?

Anyone else using the Hemisphere's have any input ?

I looked closely at the Giant Loop stuff and it is quality, but I decided to go with the Hemispheres because they're basically a next-generation design. I haven't used them on any long ride yet but there's an ALTRIDER thread thatt you should check out:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=947051

In response to demand, ALTRIDER is selling just the holsters so if you want to bring your own dry bags, you can do that too. Quite cool of them, tbh.

Does anyone use the Kriega 30 system on their 690? If so, how is the fit

+1, I am hoping to final rackless system that does not cover the gas cap or have straps over the seat as that is were my but goes. I don't get the bag straps and buckles on the seat exactly were your but goes. I think that would not be comfortable. Hopes are on the kriega. Let us know.

I have the wolfman e12s which might be too small for your needs. The straps sit on top of the seat but I've heard of people putting the straps under the seat. I don't notice the straps while I'm riding. Wolfman also has top bags that attach to the top to increase your capacity. Very versatile system. I like them for day riding, they synch down when the load is light with just the necessities. Just keep in mind they scratch the plastics pretty good. I run masking tape underneath them to prevent this.



Here they are with the fuel bottle holsters

KTM 690 luggage & rack thread

Kriega Overlander 30 works pretty well on the 690. I have not tried any other systems, but after seeing it on a KTM 520, I went with the kriegas.
The strap that goes over the seat is far enough to the rear that it is a non issue for me. It takes some practice fitting the bags and riding to know exactly they should ride, but once I got the figured out they are a really nice setup.
Shown below with a Wolfman Duffel across the top and another bag I had to carry for a buddy.

Thanks, looks good. I used a Wolfman beta duffle and it worked ok other than having to remove it to fuel up. I also found on some steep downhills I could not get back as far as I wanted due to the duffle in the way. I think the Kriegas will work out. Keep the fuel cap accesable and allow you to move way back on the steep down hills. All without having to add heavey racks.
