That's the ticket!  Ordered the Nomadic Rack last night (the Wolfman was too short).  The Kriega 20 is coming soon.  It's awesome that I'll be able to access the gas cap without screwing with the bag.  Thanks for posting the pic.

That's a pretty good blog about bags. I think I need some more soft luggage.  Think I'll try a Giant Loop Mojavi bag setup next. It may cover the gas cap though... but that may be worth the strain cuz it'll distribute they weight accordingly. We'll see. They're like $250 so might have to put that on the backburner for a bit. :P

Hugeroost,

Yeah, at one time we were allowed to store our pictures on this website, then the policy changed and that is why the pictures are deleted.  Now we have to have the pictures elsewhere and link to them.  Anyway, here are a couple that I took recently.



Here's one from today with the backpack, the gym back (C-10) and a package from the post office to boot!

Colorado Rider,

I see that you have a Scott Oiler installed on your bike.  Which model, how do you like it and why did you go with the Scott Oiler vs others?

Thanks.

Philip,

Check out the install page for more pics - it's on this site here: http://690enduro.createaforum.com/sweet-mods-and-accessories/scottoiler-automatic-chain-oiler/msg1263/#msg1263

I've seen the Scottoiler on street bikes and really liked the idea of reduced maintenance and less spray lube to buy!  I bought it because it was the one that I knew the most about and they seemed to have a good reputation.

Anyone gotten the rear rack from Perun in Serbia?  http://www.perunmoto.com/products/ktm-690-enduro-luggage-rack
Looks a little better than the Nomadic one (slots for straps and rubber bumber/support etc)

Price is on par with other racks.   Was thinking about getting this rack and the tank bolts together and saving on shipping charges!

Sweet find.  I like their side rack adaptor plates.  Unfortunately I already have the Nomadic rack.

I have Perun's basic rack and the extension plate he sells on my 690. So far I have only carried my Wolfman tail bag on it that is large enough to hold a full face helmet. It will be later this spring and summer before I really get to test it out.

Great thread!

I've been going back and forth between the Perun Moto ($120), the Nomad ($100), and the Wolfman ($200). The Perun costs about $40 to ship to the US, but I ended up choosing it because:

I'll post a review when I get it installed.

If I were posed with the same options, I'd go with Perun's rack. I really like the extra spots for straps and whatnot. I got the Nomadic rack and its working just fine, but I woulda gone with Perun's if I'd had the chance.  :P

I ordered Perun's tank bolts, rack and heel guards last week.  Hope to get them soon.
