  1. Hey Espanolito, now you’ve lived with your Longride bags for awhile, may I ask you;
    if you had your time again, would you still go for the ‘Racer’ bags or the ‘Patriot’?

    I can’t get it off my mind that I really wanted the ‘Longride bags’ and So I’ve decided to return my Kreiga duo 28.
    I like the fact you can attach the Longride bags directly onto your spacers also, which you can not with the Kreiga! This was an issue for me as I have moved my indicators to the shock position.

    Hi Goonergoose,

    For me, I would still go for the Racer. It has a bit more capacity than the Patriot (15L Racer, 12L Patriot). I also like that I can use a small padlock on the Racer. I was thinking of getting the large Patriot (19L) instead of the Racer, but I was concerned about the clearance with the exhaust pipe.

    Just as an aside, I have had them in pretty heavy rain and the inside of the bags were dry. I do have liners in them, which makes it completely waterproof, but even so the inside of the bag itself (and the outside of the liner) was completely dry. Not sure if that would be the case with prolonged exposure, but they held up on my .5 hour commute to work.

  4. Thanks for that, I ordered a set of Racer yesterday. Both models looked great. Very excited!
    In the end I decided to get the liners also. Spending that sort of money thought I may as well go the whole hog and get some that fit properly.

    Those were my thoughts exactly! The bags do look beautiful on the bike. I get comments on them pretty close to daily.

    I had also bought a large tailbag, which I think looks great with the 'ensemble'.
