Fingers crossed they're happy with them then eh!

Nice one Walter. A top effort!

Merci dude

The list of improvements I have got in these over existing bags on the market is truly vast - and they all stem from real experience - this is what I always wanted adventure luggage to be. It all started from my own project to get custom made for myself a set of luggage that does what I want them to do ... and turned into more than that when just about everyone I know also seemed to want a set.

Very nice indeed! How are these going to attach to racks?

Is there an ETA for these?

So, umm, do you guys happen to have an extra stash of those 690 fairings and brackets around, as well...? Might be persuaded. :)

Think (have to calculate the orders ) that there is one set left in stock. But the next batch will be in production after the moving of the workshop and my holidays coming month.

Dont know the Audi part numbers. The infinity lights I am using now are just as good if not better,and lighter. If you are in the US contact theretrofitsource.com for a wide selection of projectors including the infinity ones

Those look really great! Can you tell us a bit more about the dimensions? You mentioned somewhere 35-38l, but how does that translate into LxHxW?

Well soft bags are not square ... they kind of round out a bit - cause they are soft ... but if they were rigid, they would be about 45cm high x 37cm long and 22 cm wide.

Basically the same shape and size (a touch narrower) than the steel pony gascoynes pictured here:

I will probably be able to get the ballasts and all the wiring inside the box section.
