Keep in mind something that fits the BMW 800 gs. The big fat tail makes it difficult saddlebags if you want to keep it slim. I mean the bike of course.

Is this something that can be made to fit 2001-2008 Husaberg's?
Left side exuahst, all models and years close to the same and it has a very strong steel subframe already.

Hi there! Looks nice and well thought. I just checked out your website and was wondering if you could show the mounting system and how the bag attaches/detaches. Is the bag bolted to the bike or just the mounting system? It isn't clear to me but perhaps i missed something.

We are producing a short install video this weekend and will imbed on our website, that should make this much clearer.


Have you guys seen any fatigue of the plastic with this system? So there are no straps that hold the bag to the bike, at all?

Thanks Wachs, I am on a Suz DR350.

Ok, so the bag bolts on and off...straps are for cinching down the bag or strapping stuff to the bag, not for mounting to the bike right? Brilliant for dual sport touring. Very interesting.

I think the install video would clear up confusion as how it mounts.

I've held off buying a set of bags for the RXC for a long time. Never found anything that really fit the entire bill. This is looking pretty damn close.



Is there a "max width" that the back of the bike can be? (or for that matter, minimum width?) Like if I get a set for my KTM now, will it fit on the GS800/Wee/Whatever my next long distance bike is? Or are streetbikes too wide?

I guess I don't have a handle on how much of the bag shape is pre-formed, and how much of it is from having it fixed to the bike.




Also, does stuff inside need to be drybagged, or does the GL do an acceptable job of it?

Thanks again Wachs. Is it a problem to mount the bag on a different bike (say i get a new bike eventually)? Would I need to get new parts?

'96 620, so exactly the same.


If he's got the rack, lemme know if it'll fit with/without the rack (mine's currently on, and I'd probably like to keep it if I can).
