Have there been any talk or thought on mounting an US30 on the Adv. Platform ?
Waiting on arrival of a R 25 back pack. My US 20 continues to get used and abused. Such a great bag for daily rides. Carry's tools, tube, air compressor, Frog Togs, jacket, gloves, hat, etc. Room for a few beers even in a cooler bag. Sits tight on the rear, water proof as, well, just bad ass.
There has been talk of this and it is technically possible, but we do not recommend it, due to the differing demands placed on pannier bags, compared to tail packs meaning that they need to be constructed entirely differently (e.g. heavy duty Cordura in place of flexible RipStop / Rhinotek; stiffened back panels; top opening roll closure and bolt-on fitment, rather than straps etc).
I wouldn't be at all surprised if a larger version of the Overlander 15 pannier bag (or an entirely new product along those lines) breaks cover at some point, but I don't have confirmation or info about it at this stage.
Sorry I can't be the bearer of better news.
All the best,
Thank you kindly, good sir!
Hmmmm... Honestly speaking, I'd say it can be done and could well work... But it wasn't designed for this application, so it really would be a case of just giving it a shot. That said, the US-5 is an extremely versatile piece of kit, so if it doesn't fit the bill as a crash bar bag, I'm sure you would easily find another spot (which you may not have previously considered) for it.
I do see that it would be a whole new product, as it would have to be a top load, and not a side load - but it would be nice if something like that would come.... more flexibility
Any chance they made up some extension straps? I got a new chest protector/neck brace setup and my Hydro-3 can no longer be buckled. I'd like to not have to buy another hydration setup as I quite like what I have now.
Not that I'm aware of, but I'll check and let you know if they have.
In the meantime, would you like me to send you some more webbing and clips to make one up yourself?
Yea, if they don't have something pre-made I'd gladly accept the parts to diy it instead.
Thanks to Mikes input, a Kriega US30 and two US20 (US70 combo) now sits on the ass of my XT660R. US20s very lightly packed on the pictures. Goes along well with the R15, Hydrapak, Stash and Kubes. If Kriega made houses, I would live in one of them.
OK. PM me your address and I'll get the parts on their merry way to ya.
Is there any info from Kriega if they are thinking of coming out with a bit bigger version of their Outlander-30? Because 15L per side is a bit to small for my needs as my current panniers are approximately the same size and would like something bigger.
Thanks for your answer!
Thanks for the quick shipment of the US-10's. They fit perfectly on the top of the GlobeScout 45L panniers on my 2014 GSA. Exactly what I was looking for. I'm a bag/gear junkie and the features/construction don't disappoint. The mounting system works great with the panniers and also on the Jesse's mounted on my '04GSA.
Going to sew up a shoulder strap and adapter. One of these will adapt to a great haul bag on the road. You don't happen to know who Kriega sources their side release buckles from do you?
just a general question to Mike or anyone running the Overlander 60s:
once you snug down the mounting and compression straps, how much 'leftover' strap is there and what do you do with it?
if there's one thing i hate is excess strap ends beating around on the highway..
if there's anything i hate almost as much, it's having to knot and unknot the loose ends every time i need to access a bag!
Kreiga includes small plastic hoops or clips that hold the strap ends. My US 20 has 2 on each tie down strap.
Could anyone tell me if the Overlander 60 System will fit on a 2014 Super Tenere ES? I do not believe the Touratech or Metal Mule racks fit on the bike.
I haven't heard anything thus far, but that's not to say it won't happen. That said, it will probably be an entirely new product given that they experimented with quite a few pack sizes and found that 15L was optimal for this type of minimalist set-up, with further capacity available in the form of supplementary US Drypacks fitted to fender via the Rack Loops included with the Overlander 30.
I do know Dom is working on quite a few things at the moment. I'm hoping to have a chat with him in the not too distant future and you folks will be the first to hear of any developments, just as soon as I do.
Glad they lived up to your high standards, Jim!
Kriega clips are top-of-the-line Fastex Acetal ITW Airloc moulded jobs, which retain their form and range of operation, while remaining pretty much impervious to degradation from extremes of temperature and chemicals / gasoline etc.
Lemme know if you need some and I'll be happy to mail over a few of whichever ones you specify.
Yep. What AteamNM said.
The compression straps are not overlong and even on maximum compression, can be tidied up by threading them through the included Strap Keepers. That said, you could always trim 'em if - for any reason - you needed to. Just seal the cut ends with a flame to prevent fraying.
Also, might be worth mentioning that the straps can be unthreaded and the direction reversed so the buckle is on the inside or outside edge of each pack, depending on preference, left / right handed operation etc.
*puts on best 10 Commandments voice*
Hopefully the email which [I suspect] you sent and to which I responded to the other day cleared this up. But do let me know if you didn't get it, have any further questions, or it that just wasn't you.
Just in case any other Tenere ES owners are perusing this thread, the minute Touratech release their rack for the 2014 model, the Overlander 60 will snap right on. Other than that, if you can find - or fab up - racks with the 'hoop' dimensions shown in the image below, then you won't have to wait around.
Hoops themselves are available to purchase from TT.
