2012 Crashbar Bags for sw-motech bars by BlackiBags

Hi all
We received the bags today
They are well made and a good size and fit really well.
Service from BlackiBags has been great.
Wet weather pants fit easily with room to spare for bike cover and over gloves in one side, what to put in other side mmmmmmm.
Stromtrooper patches look great







Cheers Gotawee and Vman

Wow, not what I call attractive(not much helps a Vstrom), but very functional. I'm gonna look into a set of them for my trip out west this year.

Changes in mpg with bags?

Has anyone observed how mpg varies with and without bags, whether the Trax panniers, top cases, or crash bar bags?

Looks like they might block some (a lot?) of the air coming out of the radiator, notice any difference in operating temps?

I'm glad you are happy with them. They are some GIANT bags for sure. I haven't calculated the actual volume, but their the biggest bags of that type I've done.

I'm most interested in what you think of the attachment points. Are they in the right places, would it be better with one more, or are they fine as-is?
