    Hey so.... I’m going to the TT next year and then riding up to John O Groats which is going to be one hell of a ride from reading oh did I mention we have just over a week to do it all......

    My friend was giving away some bags which hang over the seat. I asked for them but don’t think they fit very well or even at all. I’m worried they are going to get hot and burst into flames with all my clothes in them

    Does anyone have any experience with this type of bag? Or know better bags that might work better?

    TIA

    Kriega all the way. I have used them on long trips in all weather's and they just work. Even flat out on the Autobahn they don't move an inch.

    Limo 40L roll top bag. Think they are £30 if that. Worked great along with a flat base plate that replaces the pillion seat. Did Spain and North of Scotland with that set up no problems in the past few years. Couple of roc straps from eBay and all works well. IMG_3811.JPG IMG_1747.JPG

  7. Kreiga all day long. Faultless and neat. This is a 20L below a 10L. Was brilliant and if you wanna rag it they are secure but easy to take off and leave at the Hotel and leaves no trace.
