Name that luggage!

Hey inmates!

Just wanted to see if anyone knows the brand and model of the large duffel on these bikes. I'm getting ready for a 9 day loop through Canada and around the Great Lakes from Denver. I need as much luggage help as I can get in a short amount of time.

I will be posting a plan in the next few days.

Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the advice. Not sure what you found, but all that came up was the forum post this pic was originally posted.

No info on the company that makes the large center duffle. I also PM'ed the inmate that owns these bikes but still haven't gotten a response.

The Al panniers are I am guessing touratech or probably the BMW Factory ones. It's kitted with a bunch of Touratech accessories - the tool kit one, the fuel hooks and the additional cargo bag on top. I know you asked about the duffel bags, but the photo makes it harder to see what the stuff actually is. Duffel bags are a dime a dozen, and I have seen people frequently recommend the giant loops, and wolfman. Anyway, if you ask around in the Equipment forum, mention your price, and features that you are looking for, you'll get some solid recommendations.


Man, I really know the Touratech catalog inside out.

Thanks sarathmenon. I might have to send that pic over to Twisted Throttle too and see what they think. Just how that giant gearbag/duffle sits on the seat looks perfect for what I need.

Ortlieb, Wolfman, and SealLine all make some nice dry bags. A little spendy, but good stuff. Helen 2Wheels is another option.

Someone posted that picture on the internal Twisted Throttle chat program to try and identify it. None of us recognized it. My guess would be that it is not designed for motorcycling.

I might suggest the DrySpec B65. The volume of that bag (you might guess) is 65 liters. The opening of the bag is 28 inches. Big enough to put anything you might need to bring on a motorcycle trip.



Shown here with the B50 (50 liter) DrySpec bag on top of it.

The dimensions of the B65 are 13 x 10.5 x 28"

The B50 is 12 x 12 x 22"

You can tie them to the bike using the D rings on the side of the bag so that you can get inside without taking them off of the bike. I would suggest using the optional DrySpec Cam Starps



Either way, I am kind of curious about those bags. I am now susbcribed to this thread if I find anything out about them I'll post the info here.

The Home Depot was selling 20" long Husky waterproof bags for $12! I picked up several. I just got back from a 5 day/1900 mile ride and I did ride through a monsoon in Alabama, my clothes inside were bone dry that evening! Yes, you read that right...$12

They work great, they have several places/loops to anchor ROX straps and they are plenty big. I placed one on each of my Touratech saddlebags. You could place one across the backseat too.

This has been some great info. Having an army of inmates on my side is one of the main reasons I'm finally able to stop dreaming and start living!

Thanks everyone. I will be posting a thread here soon that starts with buying the bike (done), on to prepping it (in process), outfitting it and finally the ride itself.

I have been riding dual sport bikes for years but never had the right bike or the right gear to go on a two week long adventure. I think watching a n00b go from nothing to finishing a 4000+ mile loop, all in one thread should be....educational.

I would stream the whole thing if I could.

I'm personally a huge fan of this thing:

http://www.atomic-moto.com/Wolfman-E...ium_p_244.html

Comes in small, medium, large. Dimensions/volume is posted.

I use the small bag to carry my sleeping bag, pad, pillow, and extra clothes. Medium you could add a small 2 person tent if your bag is small enough. Large you can have all of the above in a cold weather setup.

Mounted backwards in this stock photo lol:

Name that luggage!

Check out first gears line of waterproof bags, the Torrent line. Revzilla has them for 50-80 bucks for 25,40 and 70 liter sizes. I bought the 40 liter and it is a nice bag, well made. They make a water proof back pack as well.

I use ROK straps for any bags I strap to my bike. They are the best! Comes in different sizes, some with buckles and are adjustable. Heavy duty elastic bands and keep gear solidly strapped on.

This is a canoe deck bag, 100% waterproof, six cinch tie downs, nice little bungee net on top, that I used until I learned how to pack right. I think it cost me $20 on closeout.
