    The top bike has Dirtbags I think.

    I know the bottom bike has Andystrapz Expeditionz, approx 25L a side and damned heavy duty but simple.
    I run them on my DRZ400 and love them, definitely a recommended bag if your looking for simple and hard wearing.

    But, I have seen the error of my ways!

    [​IMG] I actually bought the Andy's Bags before Wolfman came out with his Slick Kit!

    Recently did a ride out from Colorado Springs to Azusa and back on my 2015 WR250R. No problems other than the temp light turning on as I was passing a truck through Needles. Great little bike.

    Now here is some objective feed back on a couple of the more popular WR250R accessories often touted on the internet:

    Flatland skid plate: Well built but makes a lot of racket refracting all the engine noise up to the rider. Someday I will drill mine out.

    Seat Concepts Seat: Mine gave me a severe case of butt burn after about 75 miles in the saddle. Ended up having to buy the Coleman ATV seat cover for the ride home. When advertised as a adventure seat one would expect at least 250 miles of riding in reasonable comfort. The best Seat Concepts could to do to remedy this problem , was to offer me a carbon fibre cover for another $45. I am now experimenting with a Butt Buffer gel pad for the long highway rides.

    All the other accessories did their job well as expected.

    Flatland can be 100% silent- apply Rubber door gasket with adhesive backing along frame-

    Tried a silicon bead along the frame rails. Didn't help a bit.

    Slow progression to the perfect adv bike but with every adventure it gets a little bit closer.

    Here's mine with lovely Hyperpro suspension and prototype Kriega OS 32 panniers
    Just back from 3000km in southern Morocco.
    A RR here: http://adventurebikerider.com/forum/25-ride-reports/571813-wr-ing-about-in-morocco.html
    Other stuff on my website.

    Liked:
    Hyperpro suspension
    Economy - 550km on that tank
    Lightness on the dirt - means no track is undoable
    Trail Tech temp sensor - used like a 'rev counter'
    Tusk rack - took a hammering
    Kriega pans - the new Magadans
    Garmin Montana - Nuvi meets 76CSx
    GL tankbag - just right
    The whole rig took the beating better than me ;-)

    Liked less:
    OE seat - big range means I ride too long w/o breaks
    Brakes - on the limit with my weight/load
    Mitas MC23 Rockriders - wore a bit quick for a light, low-power bike
    With a hill and a headwind you're down to 45 - just like my old CRF and a KLX then
    Fuel pump worries - but held up at up to 35°C
    Probably should have fitted a screen
    It's not a WR450R - but what is?

    With do a full review on my www shortly.

    Had the same issue with the Seat Concepts seat. I made the mistake of getting the standard foam. Called them & within a year of purchase they will trade out at no cost the firmer foam. Did this & night & day better. Have found them to be great people to work with.
