    I sure wish I would have heard that rumor! :huh

    The new bag looks great Dave! Looks like I'll be making a Flea Market post to rid myself of some old Horseshoe shaped bags and make way for my new 'Wox Werx' bag by Altrider. :D

    So, sell me. What makes these better than a GL bag? Is it external pockets? How do I get my gear to my tent? IE, do I take the entire bag off, or will there be inner bags?

    So is the GL stuff when you use the inner pods, which also make transferring and sorting gear easier. The inner pods are a big plus and if I manage to rip through the outer bag and inner bag I deserve what I get.

    FWIW, it looks like a good product, but I would hesitate to claim it is better, just different. Time and use will tell.

    I'm sure wachs will give us the correct info in short order--but from the pictures he posted it gives me the impression that the horse shoe big bag slides into a separate cordura looking over sack that is strapped onto the bike, and has the underslung tool pouches. So maybe the idea is you can easily grab the horse shoe shaped dry bag bit to sling into your tent or into a motel and leave the tools/gasoline bottles and the part that secures the over all rig to the bike--on the bike? Or maybe I have that messed up? :ear

    You just explained why I'm having a hard getting too excited about something we know nothing about other than a few pictures of a black bag that looks vaguely like a GL:hmmmmm

    I've seen it. Up close and personal. Trust me, it's a lot different than a GL. Patience.........

    Very interested. It looks like just the stuff for my 690R that is on it's way.
    I want a totally waterproof bag. Yeah!
    Looking forward to more pics.

    Totally waterproof may be a bit of a stretch for any bag. I can tell you though that both my Great Basins were a PIA to zip up so the roll top design is welcomed.

    Problem with gaining access to tools or anything else is that with a GL you have to unstrap and unbuckle everything, then fight the zipper.

    Agreed, we don't have many details as of yet, but those three issues are what make this bag a huge improvement.
