Let's talk storage, the Viking Bags Dirtman Enduro saddle bags are huge compared to some other brands my crew rides with on their bikes. There's plenty of room to store all your adventure traveling necessities. I carry cell phone ,tools, food, dry socks, toilet paper, personal protection, spare goggles, flashlights, first aid kit, water purification filter, gopro equipment, and a few more items when I ride.
When half full I don't feel them behind my legs, but once I fill the bags to capacity you can tell they are there, but it didn't bother me. I'm also 6'4" so I'm big on any bike. They actually make really great calf supports for those long uphill climbs.
Each bag comes with a small zipper pocket on the outside for the little things like tire gauge, bug spray, sunscreen, etc. Four plastic D rings attached to the outside of the bags provide extra storage for use with straps or paracord if strapping down jackets, camping gear, fishing pole, any thing for all the fun stuff that can be done on a adventure trip. With any motorcycle you will eventually feel the added weight, but the Dirtman Enduro dirt bike saddlebags carry the weight low and evenly distributed if properly packed so the feel of the extra weight was minimized. While empty, the outside webbing strap can be tightened to pull the bags against the number plate so they don't flop around and get in the way.
At only $79.99 the Viking Bags Dirtman Enduro saddle bags pack a lot of value (see what I did there). In my testing they have taken a handful of tumbles in the last month, been soaked in the rain, blasted with dirt, and slammed into rocks. All that abuse and no tears or scratches. Simply put, they are tough.
Another great feature is a reflective strip on the side of the bags which adds a little more visibility in the evenings when riding out of the woods and on the tarmac in the dark.
I'm very happy with the bags as they are, but some possible upgrades would be metal buckles and D rings instead of plastic. I have NOT had any issues with the plastic clips or D rings so far. Water proof bag liners would be a nice option for those extreme riding adventures. For now ziplocs get the job done.
I would definitely be interested in the fender bag and the handlebar bag that Viking Bags offers. I will be looking into a set for my Harley-Davidson down the road. In closing, I say pack your luggage, enjoy the ride, be safe, have fun out there, and forever ride on two wheels.
