Rated a very well deserved 5*'s to this thread.

Thanks a lot for sharing.

In my case, I simply made my own saddle bags (Saddle bags. Make it yourself.).

I suppose yes; that's what Viaterra says, but, if I get hold of an Impulse in Chennai, I don't mind testing it for you.

Thank you; but the stars don't appear for some reason, must be some bug or something.

Excellently detailed review! Rated a well deserved 5 stars to the thread.

Thanks for taking the effort to put up pics and your attention to detail in the review is just too good!

As for me, the Colt held up well on 2 RTR's for nearly 15000kms of touring. Still going strong.

Aargee, thanks for the extremely detailed review. This should help out a friend of mine who is thinking of buying the viaterra for his CBR. However, i am a bit surprised with your cramsters crapping out. My Cramster Colt (for upswept exhausts) seems to fit perfectly on the CBR and has seen ladakh and a few other tours as well.
Viaterra is though not for me and my wife. Its pillion luggage friendly but not pillion seat friendly . Cramster is pillion friendly but not pillion luggage friendly

Awesome review Aargee! First time I'm actually coming across this brand. What was the price?

Excellent review !! Would be interested in knowing the durability of it in long trips. Couple of things comes to my mind, how will it perform with full luggage in worst road conditions, secondly will the handle/shoulder strap will take the full weight.

Great detailed review.

PS: There is one another advantage of this bag, it saves the trouble of saying no for strangers asking you for drop during the ride

Great review Ganesh!

Well, am still doing well with the Cramsters, both the Colt and the Turtle, been great so far! The only major improvement I would want in any tank or saddle bag would be the addition of a waterproof fabric. Carrying the rain covers is idiotic sometimes and with advancement in tech, am sure a rain proof fabric can be made for the original fabric of the bag..Something akin to maybe a Gore-tex.
