    Yep...attach and cinch down. That along with other straps tightens the rig up nicely.

    Im sure loving these tusk tranverse bags. Im running them with the perun rack(they dont move at all). Perfect for all the tools, first aid, big tire kit, and some waters and snacks. Best $100 ive spent in a while. 20210402_130408.jpg

    Haven’t seen much in here about the OS system from Kriega. I’m really happy with the setup. I went with the 18l bags and really like the ease of use.

    Well, I lost my PVC bag today made by Wildheart. The mounting sucks on it. Someone has a decent bag now with my unopened u bolt lock and my water bill. Oh well.

    Yup, I have the same, along the OS6, 12, 18 bags... Coupled with a US 30 tailbag - Very versatile!
    Fits close and tight into the bike, solid as! :thumb

    Love the wolfman set up. In these pics have an e-base but have since got a b-base. Using large rollie bags and a small duffel. The b-base carries the large rollies a bit better than the e-base but you can use either e or b base. I run medium bags with the e-base on my WR250R. I don't like tank bags so I use a bum bag on the back for that stuff. It has hydration in it too. You can move the luggage back if you need more room and wear the bumbag. So much flexibility in attachment methods. Once secured it is solid and fully waterproof. I also add a couple of gotcha straps for securing my jacket to the back if it gets hot, or for anything else (I used them to pick up a dump truck for my son 2 Xmas' ago when we were on tour in tasmania)
    Also love that when fully loaded the luggage doesn't protrude further the handle bars - that's the best!

    Hi! I've been looking into it but was discouraged when I saw on Kriega's website that you can't / shouldn't (don't really know which) use the passenger pegs as anchoring points. I see that you are, so how is that working out for you? Have you noticed any damage to the straps?

    No damage whatsoever. I originally thought that they might be too close to the exhaust on the right side, but it doesn’t appear to be an issue. The edges are a little sharp on the inside of the pegs where it mounts, but I’m going to wrap the strap with a rubber of some sort to just to stop it from being an issue.

    I agree. I was skeptical but I'm impressed with the overall quality and fit. They fit my 890 with Perun racks like they were made for it. Can not go wrong for $100.

    Slightly different set up. Looks a lot like giant loop shape there. Still plenty of room on the seat. I use a hydration bum bag instead of back pack and there's plenty of room there for when attached behind me.

    Well @Perun came through in true fashion! Passenger peg tie downs have made it to the U.S.
    I am using these for my Mosko R80 rig, but they reportedly work for the 40 as well. I do not know if they work for other rackless systems, I'm sure he would be able to verify fitment..

    A few key points on why these are the coolest thing since sliced bread:
    They allow you to eliminate having to tie your rig to the driver's pegs, which was the only way I had found to get the rig as far forward as I wanted. Tieing off to the passenger pegs got it forward, just not enough. Not to mention...passenger pegs. Now I can remove the pegs, strap it forward, but eliminate the straps from going all the way down and possibly interfering with my boots. Now my luggage weight is safely as far forward as possible. If you've ever ridden with any substantial weight all the way back you know how this can affect handling. If need be in a pinch, I can still use the rear rack for additional (lighter) items. They have a very low profile so when not carrying luggage will not get in the way.
    Of course these also keep everything close and tight. Can't recommend these enough!

    Do you need to have in the boot pants to use Steg Pegz?

    I dig those strap hold downs they came up with to replace the rear foot pegs.

    Just a thought on your set-up FWIW. For our setups on the 790 you can remove the center rear holding strap completely (slide aluminum bar out to take if off the holster) and you could use the slots closer to the holster on the rack for the two outer rear straps and trim them down (or not) which will secure the rear of the holster down more firmly and prevent it from lifting/bouncing when on rocky trails and it cleans up the rack for anything else you might want to add at some point.

    Serbian customs took a long look at the passenger peg tie downs, but eventually released them and they have arrived in Switzerland a week ago. Thanks @Perun for yet another fantastic product for the 790/890 platform!

    Great fit and finish and I can confirm that the tie downs work flawlessly with the MM Reckless 10 and 40 (V3.0). No need for a heat shield with either bag system.

    Excellent, I am glad it works with R10 too. I have R80 and R40, but I don't have R10. Perfect.
