I own them and I feel like they're worth the cost if you tour.... they keep everything organized and I can just lift them out and go into the hotel room without taking of the sidecases. I'm freakin lazy LOL
They fit perfectly inside the sidecases, they're really light and they are padded so they protect your gear as well as the sidecases.
I also bought some smaller stuff sacks that I use to further organize inside the OEM interior bags... one for toiletries, one for all my heated gear, one for street clothes, etc
I own them and agree with Sprockethead. You don't have to remove the hard bags and lug them into your room; just grab the liners by the straps. And they are the same shape as the hard bags to maximize usable space. I also pack using the kind of vacuum bags that you sit on to remove the air; saves much space.
Tip, on your phone save a list of what's in the left bag and what's in the right bag.
This is interesting. I bought a set of the factory saddlebag liners (from my dealer) and I swear they are between 1/2 and 2/3 the volume of the hardcases. Definitely not the full volume of the hardcases. Anyone care to compare notes?
Tag on the inside says Givi, with other side of tag showing "PN: 016817
They came as a symmetric pair, and each looks like it's contoured to fit the part of the hard bag facing away from the center of the bike (I hope that makes sense).
There is no way either of these bags is even close to the 28L volume of the hard cases.
Yup, I agree. I just got back from my first over-nighter and I couldn't be more pleased with the KQR Bags and factory liners. We packed our liners and found we got more in than we were expecting. Just before we headed out I told my wife I thought we still had room in her KQR for her back pack. She grabbed it, and cool, it fit.
We then head off to parts unknown (not really, we had reservations) and arrive at our destination. We soon discovered another pleasant surprise. Her jacket with shoulder and elbow pads still fit in her KQR! I tried my leather jacket with no pads and it fit just fine.
So I think the 2/3 rds size works perfect for us. You can stuff the liner full and still have usable space with easy access.
We leave again tomorrow and feel we are well set up to have a nice ride, a cool dinner train, and great roads
