Has anyone seen the Urban Enduro saddle bags in the flesh and have an opinion or pics? Curious about there size etc. If they would make them in black and yellow to suit the Icon I might be tempted. Need something just to store wet weather gear, water bottle etc. I've been spoiled by top boxes on my other bike.

They only hold 16L between them so in my opinion waste of cash as am sure better priced after market ones will be with us at some point soon

I've always had top boxes too and kept everything inc the kitchen sink in them! I've just ordered a tail bag but they do tend to get in the way a bit, it's supposed to expand to take a helmet:

16 litres is pretty small but would probably suit me for the purpose I want them for if they really fit into the look of the bike, as in they would have to be black and yellow and fit nice and slim. I'm in no hurry so am with you TC3, I'll wait to see what the aftermarket has to offer.

Littleowl, thought of tailbags but they are in the way. Small saddlebags are something I am thinking of to leave on the bike permanently but they have to look good too. For trips I am quite happy to strap a bag over the seat and do the hop, step, jump mount bit that I have gotten used to doing in the past.

Hi Doc, I just picked up a 10 and a 20ltr Kriega set that will either strap together on the tail or individually on the tank. They look great and the quality is excellent.

I've seen them in the flesh and wasn't impressed. But, like the tank bag and tail bag, the are made from a welded pvc type material, with a roll down closure, which is a quite popular 'adventure' type look. The advantage is that they are 100% waterproof, but the downside is they just look cheap and nasty to my eye.

I'm sure the aftermarket will come up with something better.

I completely agree about how they look, not something i'd go with unless I was in a rush to get a bag and it was the most suitable one i could get with its functionality being a priority.

Hi Joe, are they both the same size? i mean left and right bag are they the same? I am asking this because I think they are different, one side seems smaller than the other, and that does not any sense at all to me

thanks

Absolutely, I don't believe there's anything out there as good as Kriega luggage, I've got the US20, US10 and US5 as well as the waistpack. Bloody brilliant stuff and with a 10 year warranty. And for the volume you get cheaper than the Scrambler stuff too.

just to know... what makes Kriega the best?
I do not own any of them... so I cannot tell. But I was willing to buy the ones for Scrambler eventually. But if you say Kriega is better, Cool! just to clear my ignorance, what makes them better?

Hi Doc,
just a few days ago the FT bags has been delivered to my dealers; here attached some pics that I taken before they were mounted on the byke.
The bags looks very nice with much attention to details (see in pic. 652 the combination lock and its housing inside the bag pic. 654); they are semi rigid, and a rain cover in pes textile (like cordura) is supplied (its pocket visibile in pc.658).
As a first impression the only negative thing I can think of is that the matte surface can be easily scratched

Good question. Let me begin by stating that I have no interest in the company nor do I work for Kriega.


For me, I really like the fact that the whole Kriega system is completely scalable. The bags all clip together and are rock solid when they are clipped together so with the stuff I have I can take anything from 3 litres to 38 litres of luggage easily on the Scrambler. I've had my US10 bag go down the road when I stupidly rode off without clipping it in place and it didn't put a mark on it, all Kriega stuff is really well put together and feels quality from the off. It is completely adaptable, I can use my bags as tank bags, tail packs or Kreiga also do a system that enables the bags to be used as panniers. On top of all that, all of the Kriega stuff I've used, (I used to have the R25 rucksack as well), has been completely and totally waterproof. To load up all my bags takes less than a couple of minutes too.


All Kriega stuff comes with a 10 year guaranty.


Year after year it consistently tops luggage tests done by Ride magazine here in the UK. In my opinion, after hard luggage, (and by hard luggage I mean big enough for two weeks away), it is quite simply the best that's available and believe me, I've tried loads!

Doc Looks like there is an Australian site for the bags Jerry mentioned
Motorcycle Tail Packs - Kriega Australia

I saw the bags yesterday and must say that I am not very impressed, especially the right side bag, its just so small.
I will wait until the aftermarkets come on line, they will kost likely be way better and cost a lot less.

One is 11L and other is 5L. These are the soft enduro bags. The semi hard panniers are bigger of course
Thanks Tony, they are as I suspected from Pictures. way too small for the price.
I wonder if they would just sell the side brackets, so that I can use my Wolfman Monarch Pass saddle bags (22L each).
Will check with the dealer, but I am afraid the answer might be no, which means I will wait for someone to build some sort of side frames ;)

Well, let me get the bike first :)
