    Would you mind asking your friend the brand/model of the bags as well as the type of cords he used to attach on top of the panniers. I like the set-up.
    Thinking of the North Face Camp or Patagonia Black hole, but those look the better.
    Thanks

    I can probably tell you alot:

    Alumn. bags are BMW.

    The yellow bags we all got on Amazon clearance for like $15 each. They were waterproof bags for on kayaks. They had their own straps we used to mount ontop of the saddle bags. They were great.

    The grey and black bags are waterproof compression sacks-
    Edit: these were Sea to Summit bags.

    We used a lot of compression straps from REI for mounting things. They come in a lot of different lengths and have heavy duty plastic latches on them. I still use mine and have had them for 2 years. He also had some bunji cords from somewhere.

    I can't remember where the tank bag came from. I will ask him. It was pretty trick. It had cig plug built into the inside of it for charging things. It also had waterproof ports in it to run wires from things like cb radio/ mp3 player out to the helmet.

    Not sure, but they appear to be Seal Line bags, I use them on canoe trips as well as on the bike, tough as nails.

    I would suggest Wolfman Luggage. The owner is on ADV and he makes great tough stuff. Adventure riding is what his luggage is designed towards.

    Link to their dry line.

    Arriving in Valencia, Spain, last week. The helmet bag was folded and stowed in a pannier, used original BMW bike-securing straps for the stupid suitcase.

    Picture from the middle of a three week cross country trip from the past summer. This picture was taken just as we first saw the pacific ocean on the PCH just above Ft. Bragg.

    Before anyone asks, the 8 inch metal vent tube on the back held my totally custom traveling electric guitar. :evil By totally custom I mean made with an crap free Yahama strat clone, and a band saw in about an hour. Played through a 9v battery amp it was perfect for passing time at the campsite though.
