New backpack

My kreiga r35 was getting long in tooth, turns out revzilla has a labor day sale on this backpack ive been eyeing. From $300 to $200, so I pulled the trigger. Hoping the roll top works well, we'll see!

Kreiga makes such good packs. My R25 has lasted forever, even surviving an accident where my Panigale 1299s was totalled and I had four broken bones. Hope this new one you found is just as good! It has big shoes to fill. Great bargain on it, and I like the styling. Thanks for sharing.

I second that. Fantastic bags. Had mine for years and they still look like new after riding in every kind of weather.
An excellent purchase.

Sorry, r25 is the one I had! Def has a legacy to live up to. My kreiga is still going minus looking a bit worn and the torn laptop sleeve. I bought it to do grocery shopping when I only had motorcycles and no car in SF. But I use it constantly, including for most of my non-moto travel. Lots of adventures and memories.

Glad to hear you came out of that and are back on the saddle. Eesh!

My 2018 BB came with a beautiful , well constructed backpack from Triumph. I'm not really a backpack wearer , but if I was , I would wear it everywhere. I believe it was a 2018 promotion.

Hi BB,

Yes I too got a lovely Triumph back pack with my bike. It fitted the folder/paperwork in nicely. I don't really use it but felt it was a real class act on Triumphs part.

Cheerio,

Roy

Have seen those Velomacchi bags in person and they're beautifully designed constructed. Should last you a long time. If I didn't already have a Givi, that's what I'd get, too.

The harness system looks sweet, but I'm a little apprehensive about the roll top and hooking mechanism. It'll be promptly replaced by another kriega if it's fiddly. No doubt it looks high quality though!
