I just purchased the DrySpec 20L bags. Havenít had a chance to try them out yet but they look quite sturdy and are 100% waterproof. They arenít too large and wonít hold a great deal but enough space to take along clothes, small camping equipment and needful supplies, though youíd need to be selective. I would have to keep my tent, sleeping bag and larger items on the pillion but I had to do that on my 1200gs as well.


....oooo, never gone down there before!

Iím using the SW-Motech Pro side carriers, with Wolfman Expedition bags. A nice set up!

Spart, are your Dryspec bags on a rack or just hanging free from the straps?

I'm wondering if anyone is using the soft luggage from SW-Motech - at around $500 they seem nice.
The Honda factory hard bags are nice but at $1600... ?  :027:

Hey lojo, you might want to look at the Tusk Highlanders.

I've been using mine for less than a year, but I do like them. I think they are a good value.
Cheers
Just damn happy to be here...

Screamer1665, I do have a set of RR side racks behind the DrySpec bags, which are a much heavier duty rack than what is needed for these bags.

Swanny - hard to tell from the pictures, but do you have the SW-Motech Blaze bags straps under the seat? 'Cuz I tried but seat won't close...   :187:
