690 Enduro R. 2 years, 4 months ago #116614

Well, the 400exc has gone & in it's place stands a spanking new 690 Enduro R(well it will the wk end)....The question is if anyone has one that is, how do you carry your kit?
What type of rack have you got fitted & what type of bags do you use??(soft luggage for off road).

Congrats, hope you like it now.

I normally whack all my gear into a 90L bag and strap it on the back. Not ideal as it makes the bike top heavy. So try and keep it light! If you can limit it to 10KG's all the better. Sounds a lot but trust me, it isnt.

And make sure you waterproof everything....remember the car wash. Even though I thought Id waterproofed I still had a damp nights kip after this....

Been looking at one of these myself and have been looking at luggage options..there 3 options 1 touratech style pannier rack that will except soft luggage also still be able to fit your gobi boxes if you wanted,,i use 2 kriega us20 strapped to my touratech rack work fine.2 specific soft luggage rack like the wolfman from winding roads, this might be good for you because they do the specific adaptor plate to carry the rotapax you have with the wolfman bags..theres also a soft luggage rack from rally raid.. 3 no track at all giant loop or wolfman rolie system..I've seen great shields available to protect from the exhaust
