    I can’t get traction in any gear mate so I don’t know. Wheel spin and sideways to 7th gear. :viking

    It's called throttle control Al. This may be a new concept to you.

    Husaberg ain’t racist Chris. They recognise a nice rack when they see one.

    There's something wrong with that engine, it is kind of vertical!
    What kind of witchcraft is this? ;)

    It looks like great stuff. I'm a little torn between getting the whole OS Combo enchilada or just an OS-6 for the tail.

    Depends on what you intend to do. I have the older OS15’s. The OS18’s are the updated replacements. These are ultimate for multi day camp out trips. If you are going to pub/accom stay well less will do.

    Most of the time it will just be day use. Something to throw some extra fuel in, carry some tools, spares etc. I have a Wolfman Enduro (6 liter) tank bag that I keep on the bike also.

    Maybe along the lines of what Dukehunt is running then would suit.

    I decided to dip a toe in with the OS-6 and the OS Rack Loops. I'll use the 6 as a tail bag and if I like the quality I'll probably get an OS Combo.

    Get ready to order than, the quality of the Kriega gear is absolutely first class.
    I've got a US 10 or 15 and the R25 pack and have had them since 2008 maybe? Still looking like they'll outlast me.

    Looking forward to it. Kriega doesn't seem to be overwhelmingly popular in the US for some reason, but from what I can tell their offerings look the business.

    I would say they are on par with my Mosko gear and that is good stuff, I have no problem with either of them for quality and durability..

    I’d also say the English product would prob be in competition with some excellent US made luggage.

    Yes, they are lent to supporting their own businesses and gear over others, sometimes even when the product isn't as good.
