Well Dan I could always try the Wolf rack + Ortlieb Recumbent Panniers for max space.



Decision made: I'll call Ortlieb tomorrow, tell the of my quandary, tell them I'm buying a Wolf rack and explain how they really should send me the different QL2 pannier sets to test on the rack, and how positive results will be posted to ADVRider.

If that doesn't work, I'll call Kreiga.

If I'm not mistaken, the Ortlieb M22's are motorcycle specific, and a bit bigger yet. I need some luggage, too. Please post back and tell us what you learn.

It looks to me like the motorcycle specific ones have two bottom mounting clips that would fit the wolfman rack better and be more solid than one single clip in the centre like the bicycle ones do ...imho.

This rack



with a couple of these attached...



Anyone done it?
I'm waiting for the US-30L bag myself. I already have the largest Rollie bag Wolfman makes but I need bigger. The US-20L has more volume then the largest Wolfman Rollie but the opening at the end of the bag is almost the same size so it limits how big an item you can put in it.

I have some of those Sea To Summit bags and they are very good. The thing that I really like about the Kriega is the interlocking feature which makes stacking and mounting various bags together a breeze! I don't think anyone else has this part beat.........if you need this feature.

That being said, you can't go wrong with any of these top brands....they're all quality kit!

Can be done, but it will always be a 'jerry rig' situation.

We actually have a seriously good framed and frameless pannier system, called the OVERLANDER, which will offer 30 to 60 liters of bombproof side-slung capacity, due for launch soon. I can't say too much about it right now, but will be able to in a few weeks. Safe to say, it's going to be pretty darn special and hopefully answer all the questions commited ADV'ers have about panniers.

If you want to let me have a few more details about your bike and the type of riding you have planned, I'll be happy to see if Kriega can offer a solution for this situation. Plus, you can always call on 504.872.9367 if you'd like to discuss your requirements in detail.

Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.



Cheers,


Michael

Thanks, Mike. Please post back here and in Vendors when it's available. I'll send bike info in separately.

The Kriega solution may be good though, so might be worth the wait. Well for me anyway as it's still snowing here.

Hey Sarah,

Prolly three. As soon as I'm fully up to speed on them, I'll be posting details on here and the Kriega USA Facebook page. And Dom (the genius who designed, developed and field-tested the Overlanders systems) will wade in with the hardcore technical stuff at some point soon too.

I have a Kriega US20 that I use as a tailbag on my F800GS. It's the most water proof bag I've strapped to a motorcycle. I'm looking for a luggage system for my TE630 and was wondering the same thing as the OP. Hopefully the new Kriega overlander rack will fit my almost-mythical bike otherwise I'm going to see what I can do with the Wolfman racks.

Just to let y'all know, that after a *slight* delay, due to Dom (who designed the gear) being an absolute perfectionist, I am pleased to announce the arrival of our new range of hardcore Dual Sport pannier and Rack Loop mount systems and bags.

The initial batch is now shipping and is expected to move pretty quickly. However, our inventory will be constantly topped up from the UK on a weekly basis, so it's unlikely that we'll ever stock out for more than a day or two. You can also contact your favorite Authorized Kriega Dealer (more being added all the time - see the Stockists page of www.kriega.us) to ask about ordering your choice of gear.

More info and images of the new range can be viewed by clicking on any of the following photos:


OVERLANDER 60 (shown here with one of the four included 15L bags mounted, along with optional RotopaX gas/ water cells and an additional US tail pack attached with optional Rack Loops)





OVERLANDER 30 (shown here with optional US tail pack mounted using included Rack Loops)





RACK LOOPS
(set of 4, used to mount US tail packs without additional hardware)




More info here: http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=...&id=3409715bbb

And on www.kriega.us.

As always, do not hesitate to post up any questions you may have (please click the following link to post them in the Kriega Kit Q&A thread in this section, so I can answer everyone's questions together) or get in touch via the phone number or email on our website.


Cheers!



Michael
