    Default Cramster saddles

    Got mine last week; used them today as a test ride with Wifey riding pillion. Found them extremely useful & had a large storage space.

    Why I like this because...
    1. easily removable so that I can remove them during my regular ride to office or even when touring when I don't need them.
    2. has large storage space & doesn't really need to be balanced
    3. Nothing to lock up & leave it; I can carry my own personal stuff

    Wondering if you are aware of any better alternatives ?? locations to purchase / fit the same. Let us share innovative ways to carry luggage.
    Hi PitBull,

    This topbox is really a great stuff and essential for the bikers who tours more often, would you please share an info where can I find the topbox like this or is it a custommade, I've tried contacting GIVI (Indonasia) however they are not aware of the fitting of Indian bikes, I would really appreciate if you can
    provide us info.

    Cheers,
    Amogh

    Got some questions....
    1. Is it turtle from cramster (tank bag)?
    2. If yes for above, then how much it do cost u and hows the material quality?
    3. Regarding size of the bag, do you feel comfortable in front? Means is the speedo visible and is there any problem in turns when the bag is loaded???
    4. Do the powerful magnets have any impact on atm card strips? (Sry if u feel its a stupid question)
    5. Any matter if scratches on tank while loading/removing the bag? If yes, any solutions you opted for??

    The price of turtle is 1800/- (You may find the store at/ near yoyur city please check out the below mentioned URL )
    3. Regarding size of the bag, do you feel comfortable in front? Means is the speedo visible and is there any problem in turns when the bag is loaded???
    yes comfortable it depends how do you mount on your tank, however when tankbag is completely loaded you may find difficulties to view entire dashboard (i've had trouble on my RTR though)
    4. Do the powerful magnets have any impact on atm card strips? (Sry if u feel its a stupid question)
    not quiet sure, i've not face any issues especially when i keep my wallet/ATM cards in sidepockets
    5. Any matter if scratches on tank while loading/removing the bag? If yes, any solutions you opted for??
    Yes, usually i put plastic or fabric before i mount the tankbag/ magnet straps to avoid the scratches

    While saurav was busy working on-site, i bought a Cramster Turtle for him. Mounted it on my P220 and ther are no visibility issues even when the bag is filled to its max capacity (after expansion).

    Also one thing i noted is that the fabric quality, although VFM at 1800/- bucks is a little on the inferior side when compared to Rjays tankbag. Also i think this bag will be a tad small if you want to pack a sweater/jacket along with clothes for a couple of days. Anyways, it is bang for your buck and sticks to the tank like a leech no discomforts even at 120kays
