Hi all,

I have a 2003 954 and trying to decide what luggage solution to get to sit on the pillion seat.

I am leaning towards the Kriega UScombo40 but as I understand these are pretty much just dry bags that hook onto the fitting hooks that come with it? How easy is it to put the fitting hooks in under the seat of the 954 - preferably without drilling into any plastic? The other option would be the Bagster whopper - but as I may occasionally put a tent or something on top as well I figured the UScombo would be easier to do that.

Your thoughts are much appreciated!

Many thanks =)

Edit: I should also add that I may need to carry a small 11" laptop with me too - but i have a bagster tank cover and could probably get a bagster tank bag to do that :)

Hi, I've been using the Kriega bags for years and always have a us10 on the back with spare visor and other stuff. Great bags, really robust and waterproof. I don't know about the newer versions but with mine you just lift the seat, lay the straps over the bike then close the seat and clip the bag on. Really stable even when they are full. I've used them for touring a few times in combination with a tank bag and they've been brilliant. Hope that helps.

Hi thanks for that, really helpful. Do the straps have something for the bag to hook onto ? On the Kriega site it says locate 4 strong areas of the subframe and then tighten them: http://www.kriega.com/template/downloads/USDryPacks_FittingInst_A4_WEB-1.pdf

Does that look anything like what you have? Do they have pockets or anything or literally just one big dry bag compartment per sack?

Many thanks for your reply.

Ah, that must be an updated version. With mine you lift the seat and run the straps across the bike then close the seat and clip the bag on then tighten the straps. You can do the same with the new version so you can either attach the straps to the subframe or do what I do and just loop them under the seat. There is also a zip up waterproof pocket that runs the length and width of the bag on the top. Here is a great video review on the bags.
