Re: Tubliss tire system

Thing about backpacks is to pack them with a get-off in mind. A tire tool through a rib cage would not be very pleasant. Just sayn...

Yes. That's why I keep soft stuff between me and the tools.

Re: Tubliss tire system

I carry all my stuff on the KTM 530 EXC in soft side bags. They are Kriega Overlander 30s. They don't make them any more, but they still have something similar and better.

https://kriega.com/overlanders/

Mine don't have the part that straps to the bike independent of the bags. The straps are built into my bags. I like the newer version better.

I put the tubes flat in the bottom of one side bag. I put the pump in the same bag. I put the tire irons and other tire related stuff in the same bag. All my other, and heavier, tools go in the right side bag. This fills up the bottom half of each bag (approximately). That is it for a day ride. I can just about disassemble the bike with the tools I carry.

If I am camping off the 530, things like my chair, spare gloves, cooking stuff, etc,... go in the side bags. Tent, sleeping bag, and some clothes go in a Wolman medium dry bag across the tail of the bike. I try to keep that as light weight as possible!! I use a small Wolfman Enduro tankbag for other stuff, like JB weld putty, bailing wire, spare spark plug, tire gauge, and other small bits. I will wear a Kriega R20 backpack as well.

https://kriega.com/riderpacks/r20

Snacks, water, and clothing go in this. Again, I try to keep it light weight other than the water. For clothing, it is just socks, undies, a shirt or two, camp pants, and maybe a sweat shirt. My jacket liner and pants liner will go in the top bag on the back of bike if I am not wearing them.

I do not use a front fender bag. I have tried them and do not like the weight on the fender. It makes the bike handle funny.

On a typical ride on my GS, I just put my tools and tire stuff in the rear top hard bag. I leave the side bags off unless I am doing a multi day trip on the bike and need to pack clothes and such. I don't use a tank bag or back pack for the GS. I might use a Camel-Bak if we are going to be somewhere that we can't stop every 100 miles or so to take a break and get drinks or if it is just going to be really hot.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, youíre a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, youíre a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, youíre a moderate. If you donít want government to intervene anywhere, youíre an extremist. ó Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a Ďdismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. Ė Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction ó the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Man I remember my "Camel" patch kit I used all the time. Remember getting sad when tubes had more than 10 patch's on them, meant we had to go find more soda bottles to return for cash!

Gas was $0.26 cents a gallon too.
I remember the .56 gal at the gulf station in 1970 something. But .26 ? Boy, your OLD !

The underside of the right one is a little toasty from exhaust heat, but otherwise fine.



I usually ran without the tailbag.

I might take you up on those in a few weeks if kirk doesn't. But seeing as he told me I apparently get to carry all the tools, maybe he should buy them to put on my bike lol
