When there is no luggage, it can be folded and compressed and acts as a cushion for the pillion. In its expanded form it has a capacity of 12 litres which should be enough for day rides or at the max a ride with 1 night stay if you pack light. It is very easy to tie it around the seat, can be done within 2 minutes. Will post a review once I use it for a few rides.

    I would love to know the reviews. The bag looks interesting.

    Regarding sewing:Are local cobblers enough for the job?(they're getting rare nowadays as are purpose oriented leather shops in this part of the nation)
    They should be good enough, all you need is to sew the cut with a nylon thread and you should be good to go.. I haven't done such a thing myself but it should work I guess..

    Where can I get the tank pads?? ( Not the ones you put on top of the tank but the ones you install on the side of the tank to get better knee grip while cornering)??

    I need them desperately to get the knee down without spending money on Leather Pants, since the side of the tank of D200 is quite slippery.

    I'm also thinking of doing some DIY there with regular old mouse pads made from rubber. Will post if successful..

    As of now I've done a 450km trip with the bag and it seems like the best thousand bucks I have spent in a while. Review coming up soon.

    Hi guys,

    I want to buy new riding jacket and have shortlisted dsg Evo and rynox air gt. Both are mesh jackets and pricing is also similar. I have read dsg Evo review here but haven't seen any review of rynox ( have searched here ). So which one should i buy, i want

    1. Good protection
    2. Good ventilation here in my area temperature goes to 45 degree in summer.
    3. Should be durable i will be using for at least 1-1.5 years.

    Budget is around 6k

    Also which size should i pick l, i wear L size shirt. Should i take one size up or one size down

    Thanks in advance

    Ride safe

    Hi,

    Iam planning to buy the Air GT vs DSG Evo as well. Along with Rynox Kombat/Rampage semi-gauntlets.

    Any help from fellow xbhpians in this regard would be welcome.
    Also, will the Air GT be too flashy for daily commutes. What about its level of ventilations vs waterproofing?

    Thanks!

    You can get stompgrips at about 4.5k, from prs, or keiti traction dots at 2.6k , from planetdsg.
