    Hello there people - This site (ADVRider) has been quite an inspiration for us over the past few years. Truly a global community of enthusiasts that have enlightened us to cultures, methods, experiences and places that I would certainly never have been exposed to. We are proud to announce the launch of our new product and hope to hear from those interested. Thanks for a really cool web environment.

    can your fully-loaded machine do this?

    or this?

    No racks to bend, break, or stress your subframe.

    Bolt this right to your plastic - it 'hugs' the bike like a tiny passenger that never complains.

    Ride a KTM? get yourself a spare fender and permanently mount the bag for easy swapping.

    It makes an XR look even better!

    Remember that '95 KTM RXC 620? No racks, no melting and ready for the 1000 mile loop!

    Neat idea. I'd like to see one up close, as far as what is accessible as you ride without taking it off.

    Great looking design! For those of us in the "wetter" part of the world, any chance of a "truly" waterproof version? :deal

    Great! Keep us in the loop. If you need a Guinea pig...(or swamp rat as the case may be) to test on, I work for discounts! :deal

    Great looking product. Any chance these might work on a 950 Super Enduro? Even my aluminum FMF's get pretty warm back there.

    Dear Wachs,
    I spoke to you a couple times last week-thanks for returning my calls. I just placed my order and want to make sure the bags will we delivered well in advance of my 10/13/08 departure date for the Mexico (Chabochis-"Hairy Face") Rallye.
    Please advise.
    Thanks,
    Jimmy

    absolutely best design i've seen for softbags. Not sure about the MSRP, but with a design like that, you'll probably get it.

    Keep in mind something that fits the BMW 800 gs. The big fat tail makes it difficult saddlebags if you want to keep it slim. I mean the bike of course.

    Is this something that can be made to fit 2001-2008 Husaberg's?
    Left side exuahst, all models and years close to the same and it has a very strong steel subframe already.
