Colebatch - What kind of straps are you using?

Magadan Bag Size

Any further news/developments on the size of the Magadan bags regarding what they are size wise, compared to what they should be?

The AS website currently says dims are:
35 x 19 x 48cm
Which comes in at just under 32L.
The middle figure matches the tape measure photo above, more or less, and the height must vary by a few inches depending on how much you roll down (which is the good thing with roll tops).
On WC's bike it looks like around half a metre tall to me.
Plus the outside pockets add 2-3 litres.

Looking forward to having a closer look myself when the June batch comes in.

thought these bags were priced too high until after a bit of digging about how these bags are built with kevlar, and all sorts of features.
--------------------

Having tried pretty much everything out there and still frustrated by the shortage of features, I decided to build a set for myself. I wanted bags that were capable of carrying a good 35 litres of stuff. The bigger the bags are, the more weight you can get down low, and the smaller your back bag needs to be. I wanted bags that could keep your stuff dry. In the end I decided a removeable waterproof dry bag liner was the best solution as you can take your dry stuff out in a 5 second grab - and take it into your tent - or accommodation - without having to rummage thru the bag in the rain, or take a wet muddy outer bag into a tent or hotel.

Then the bags had to be lockable - a few ideas came and went before I decided to use PacSafe WrapSafe cables. The advantage of these cables is that you can not only lock the bags shut, but you can lock the bags to your luggage rack - by routing the cable through it. The bags have loops front and back for routing the cable and holding it to the bag. So by doing that we had the first motorcycle soft bags that actually offer some sort of security and lockability.

But to complete the security picture we wanted to make the bags slash proof. Not much point locking the bags shut if someone can just slice them open in 2 seconds. Again everything including internal wire mesh was considered, before deciding to sandwich a layer of Kevlar / Twaron in the bag construction. Its extremely difficult to cut and is used in stab proof and bullet proof vests. This puncture restance further adds to the durability of the bags.

Do the Brits swap the month and day or would this be correct (from the site for the bags) that they're gone until November? June 11th would be much better...

My friend's DRZ exploded its FMF in a very similar fashion. We concluded it happens due to lack of frequent repacking. Thats mainly why i still ride with my stock pipe while saving for that fancy euro pipe Walter is rolling around with. My other friend who used to build his own thumper pipes said thumpers pulse too hard for an empty closed pipe so once packing is gone this will happen eventually.

Some country's have no idea how to write dates. The rest of the world reads it as 11th june.

If the construction of that can is the same as my freeride you might be able to save it. Drill the rivets out and remove the end cap. If there is a perforated tube going through the centre of the exhaust, and the damage is limited to the rear inch or so as it appears, you could try cutting the damaged section off and trimming the tube by same amount. Repack the can with loose fill packing and rivet the end cap back in place.

Actually it would be the rest of the entire world that puts dates in order of size .... day/month/year ...

I mean you dont tell time by hours:seconds:minutes ... do you?

The question is why did you guys mess it up?
