I just mounted the large bags on my DR 650. The bags seem really well made for any price point, but especially at $350. Plenty of room and straight forward mounting.
There is so much to love about these bags.
Here is just a couple of reasons
- red lining making it easy to find items in the bag.
-shape of bag allows for it not to interfere with getting off and on the bike and also allows for standing position riding off road.
-waterproof. And several sizes to choose from for your personal needs.
The drawback was in the way they attached to the bike. (IMO) the best way was to go under the seat in order to secure bags making them harder to be “taken”. But this also makes them harder to bring up to a hotel room.
Also the side straps had to be secured in several locations. This also makes it a chore to remove from the bike when bike is in for service or again if you want to take into hotel. My Solve for hotel is: I put items in a bag and then bag in side the saddle bag. Or just carry a collapsible bag and you can load it up with contents of saddle bag. This may not be an issue depending on your use.
Very rugged tree layer fabric , also waterproof, plus good service at Enduristan USA.
