    Is the Kiger harness different from the Fangango / Diablo?

    Could you post a picture please of the Kiger unzipped for filling up with petrol?

    thanks

    Yes, the Kiger, Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags all use the same harness and fueling is as simple as unzipping one side of the Tank Bag and flopping it to the side for all of them. They are all also compatible with the Pannier Pockets.

    Happy Friday! Here's a little inspiration from Tolga Basol, Ride Must Go On! Road of Bones, Russia, 2014.

    Does the tracker packer thing come without the red EMERGENCY top strap?

    The red strap's functional purpose - beyond calling attention to the SPOT Gen3 for first responders - is proving a redundant closure. I took inspiration from surf board leashes: By securing the third strap over the two inner straps, there's almost no way for the closure to come open, even in a crash.

    We wouldn't recommend removing it. If you don't like it, use a big black permanent marker and color the strap!

    Our design criteria are based on the needs of SCORE off-road racers and the Kurt Caselli Foundation. If you're not using it for racing, then it's probably not as critical to have the bright red EMERGENCY strap - your riding buddies will know where to find your SPOT without it. Strangers, spectators, emergency first responders may not.

    Thanks for the great question!

    Thanks for the reply...

    I completely understand why the top strap is there and don't want to remove it... as I don't race (officially) the red seems very bright.

    Permanent marker would work... or a good layer of dirt/mud.

    Ordering...

    I did not want the shirt or cap... so I did not use the ADVinmate code.

    Yes, I think the Kiger Tank Bag is faster to get in/out than the zippered Fandango, Diablo and Buckin' Roll Tank Bags. And the easier it is to get to your camera the more likely you'll be to use it - and not miss shots.

    The Columbia Dry Bag went steelhead fishing on the Oregon Coast last weekend - and it brought good luck to its owner, photographer Jon Tapper!

    Oregon's Kiger Mustangs - wild horses with a lineage connected to the original Spanish horses brought to the Americas - inspired the name for our new Kiger Tank Bag.

    Yes, all of our saddlebags, panniers, tank bags, dry bags, etc. fit the BMW R80GS, R100GS - pretty much all of the airhead models.

    The Great Basin Saddlebag, Coyote Saddlebag and MoJavi Saddlebag mount in much the same way: 2 side anchor straps attach to passenger peg mounts and at least one rear anchor strap secures to tail rack, passenger grab handles or other solid connection.

    Here are a few examples:
