    only had the bags for a couple of months now.... mine are the bicycle bags (not the Motorcycle type) and are current product, although the brochure states 40L... I reckon that's the 2 combined!

    I carry a 2man Bibler tent, H/D foil blanket, sleeping bag, pillow (and bottle of wine) in one and odds and sods in the other - they hold a shed load and pack down as the load is 'consumed', so I ride out like a granny... and ride home like an idiot... :D

    can post some detail pics tonight if that helps...

    gozell, what kind of engine bash guard is that you're running? Don't think I've seen one like that before.

    Well that explains why I couldn't find them....didn't look in the bicycle section. Yea....the specs say 40L for the pair...which is 7L less than the motorcycle specific set.

    I just received a set of Wolfmans new saddle bags, which are similar to the Ortleibs....they look good out of the box, but I've yet to try them on the bike...time...

    Yeah, being where I am, it's kinda like a surfer who gets to live at the beach. :D I just need more time to catch a few waves.

    Thanks. I took about seven different shots, trying to get something interesting. The rest are here:
