I was working in Malaysia for the Commonwealth Games 20 years ago...based in KL but travelled around a fair bit. It's a lovely country and the people were really friendly....we were made to feel very welcome. Think it was coming up to Ghost month...lots of plays and huge incense sticks :062:

that is in 1998 right? lots of things have changed here, especially the road condition and most of the scenic places. come again, this time bring your bike.  :152:

How waterproof/resistant do you find those E22 bags? I am looking into adding them for a little more daily luggage capacity. My backpack can fill the whole 46L topcase, which doesnt leave any room for my helmet. Therefore when I go to the mall or shopping I need to carry my backpack or my helmet. Both dont fit (safely) in my bike.

If you mean by waterproof is to submerge them in water, I don't think so because it don't have rubber ring on the lid. But so far water never leaks in the bag even if I'm riding in heavy rain, at any speed. There's like a drain along the lid inside and drain hole at the bracket side which I just notice last month when I'm spraying pressured water jet during washing, the water flows through the hole but no water going into the main compartment.

For long ride I will put on the topcase but it is just for to keep my helmet. Same like you, I don't really like to carry the helmet anywhere when walking.   :152:
