Kriega Overlander

Going to Dual-Out my KTM 350 SXF for this year's Montana trip. Been eyeing up Wolfman Rolie Harness system and thinking of that with Kriega strapped to it on the side.
Wolfman Rolie Harness:


But somewhere I read Kriega is making new bags very soon. SO I contacted Kriega USA about new products thru facebook and got this response:

"Soon, Jimmy. Very soon... The 2012 catalogue is on the printing presses right now. Once that's complete we'll be able to release details of the awesome new OVERLANDER framed and frameless soft panier systems, which would be perfect for your bike. Exciting stuff. Can't wait to show y'all!"

Did my best to search the web for any info but nada. Guess I have to wait My guess is it will be like Wolfman's harness system which I found a pic of what I was looking to do from a KTMforumUK I belong to. I'm hoping Kriega's new kit will look like this or very similar:

And then, with a US-30 in the middle, 90L of rock-solid, almost indestructible Enduro spec capacity is possible. Production is scheduled for April and we'll get our first shipment around then.

This is the toughest stuff Kriega has ever made.

Stay tuned for more details as they emerge...

Yeah, but can you use the Kriega bags you already own?

Indeed you can, Jim. That's the beauty of Kriega - everything works with everything else. Nevertheless, the Overlander bags are purpose-made for this application and are therefore the recommended option. I'm expecting the full tech spec and product induction in a few weeks, so either me or Dom from Kriega UK (the genius who designed, developed and field-tested the Overlander systems) will post full details ASAP.

You'll hear it here first, folks!

Me either!

Glad you like 'em, Jimmy. 'Badass' is the right word.

And to be fair, Joe Bar's to thank for the teaser - it was he who really let the cat out of the bag with the spyshot!

Not really a spy shot when they were on open display at both EICMA and the NEC. That said, it did look a neat system and Dom from Kriega took the time to fully explain it all. The only slight concern I saw was the weight pushing the side panel onto the exhaust as you can see it the photo, from what I've seen of the Wolfman set up, the load may be a little more widely spread via their harness system. Don't think you'd go far wrong with either set up though - both quality manufacturers, with great reputations.

Indeed they were!

Bear in mind that the photo is of a pre-production model, which may not even be fully strapped on. Official images, spec and info will follow from Kriega in the not too distant.

Is it just me that looks at the pic in the lead post, and thinks something naughty?

Ah, I thought so.

Carry on.

At the gothenburg (Sweden) show I picked up a 2012 catalog and saw the some of the new bags. The overlander 60 system looks very promising! I would be very curious to see some pictures of how it looks installed and how easy it is to remove the bags from the LDPE frame.

Hi SpaceMan,

If you have a copy of the catalogue you have all the images and info that is currently available to me, but I will be getting my first demo system for the Indy Dealer Expo in two weeks time and will be able to post full details after then. But suffice to say, it looks great and it is very slick and easy to unlock the LDPE platforms from the racks and the bags from the platforms.


Cheers!



Michael

These might make it a bit clearer.
