    Andrew,

    Have you gotten your hands on the luggage yet? I was curious about which material you prefered and why? Those strapz are a classic, I should have though of that! Anyway let me know how much the A (bigger) tail bag is and I'm thinking the oilskin would be my preference but that was the reason for the Q above.

    We are finalizing all the arrangements and will inventory by September. I have had a lot of correspondence with the owner and he is very excited to kick off the line into the US. I'm trying to get him to come over for next years national BMW rally along with the owner of Kaoko.

    I've been waiting for this one to come along and which would allow me to say a fond farewell to the day job. It will be very cool....

    As soon as I have inventory on hand I will ask for beta testers and product reviewers :deal

    thanks,
    Andrew

    Mate the stuff that Andy makes is great !!!, a lot of us here in Oz use his stuff. The expedition panniers are the best soft bags Ive ever used.

    Hi,

    ive got a Cordura A bag and a set of panniers as well as a heap of different strapz. I went cordura with the A bag because I have bad memories of filty oily belstaff jackets, however Andy assures me thats not the case with the modern oilskin. A pile of my friends use the panniers as well as tankbags and all sorts of other stuff.

    Ive ridden with Andy and he is a great bloke. he rides a Cagiva 750 elephant. basically he started making stuff because he couldn't buy the stuff he wanted in any good quality.

    you yanks will be onto a good thing when the stuff gets over there.

    Thanks Greg.


    I'll be buying the A Bag and a few strapz I think. I guess I'll have to decide on which material after I over analyze the hell out of it like I always do it seems.
