I like those too..... :tb
Wonder how they do without a frame support.
I use the SW-Motech frames that is for my TraX panniers, I would not use the Adventure Spec Magadan soft panniers without a frame.
They are water proof, slash proof and got pockets on the sides, I love them!
They look huge! What is their capacity? Probably more bag than I'm looking for...
I think these Ortliebs are the front runners for my needs....
I'm actually digging the smaller ones a lot
Yea... I like those too... 46 L...just a bit smaller and they are 4 inchs shorter than the larger Ortliebs which might be a good thing with the lack of a large rack.
You think there is any concern with how these Ortliebs would hang over the tenere pipe guard with that rigid back? I wonder if the wolfmans would have more flex and bend and hug around it better. Sure wish the wolfmans were about 24 L per side....I would definately get those.
I just checked and the pipe guard is almost flush with the top of the oem rack so I dont see that rigid back on the Ortlieb as being a problem
So you imagine we could use the Yamaha OEM pannier mounts as attachment points for soft luggage, instead of having to buy the more traditional racks?
I'm also having a hard time tearing my eyes from the Wolfman Rocky mountain bags. I think they are the nicest looking ones. Also the priciest but you know what they say about getting what you pay for.
All Wolfman soft luggage.
I used the wolfman expedition saddle bags and an expedition duffel bag for my 1.5 month trip around NZ. More that enough room for all my cooking, food, beer, cloths, tools, spares, sleeping bag and computer. Totally water proof as tested. I strapped my tent on out side of all my bags.
The saddle bags are some what adjustable in volume in that you can roll the top down less if needed. 24l? didn't measure but there is a lot of room.
If I had a fancy down sleeping bag and no laptop, I could have put the tent inside the duffel bag.
bags were tested in a couple of light crashes when off road but never tested them on road.
Did one badly rutted 4x4 track (Worsley Spur in Christchurch) http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtmTHqKyOhE where you are forced to ride in the wheel tracks often. My mate got knocked of a couple of times when his hard luggage cases hit the bank. My soft case where less of a problem.
Those expeditions or rocky mtn saddlebags...? Assume wolfman rack used?
I was looking at these for my S-10.I just haven't gotten around to ordering them yet.
and a advrider review
I have this ones and are great
Not sure if I'm crazy about how high up all the weight ends up. Takes up a lot of space on the cargo rack too from the looks of it. I use a 36L dry bag on my tail and it would be tough to squeeze that on as well.
Looks like you would have to scoot it way back in order to ride 2up also.... or it might make for a good pillion couch.... ?? Have you ever ridden 2 up with that bag on the bike? Guess that would solve the issue of sagging into the wheel or getting on the pipe though without some sort of support coming off the oem racks.
I plan to do some overnights this spring trading out between my 13 yr old daughter and 9 yr old son.
If you want to ride 2 up Giant Loop ofers a better option: http://giantloopmoto.com/products/siskiyou-panniers/
that can be completed by this: http://giantloopmoto.com/products/fort-rock-top-case/
I ride "solo" so the Great Basin works well
