IIRC, these tyres are "L" rated, ie max speed of 120 kph. This is stupid slow. I wouldn't even think of these tyres for my impulse

I am planning to replace my Frogmans for the same reason. Will take Nomads whenever in stock. Good to know that Srivastha's rack can take 50% of claw weight while keeping pillion comfortable!

As for tires, do keep me posted once you get them. Have few months to go until i would need the knobbies.
Motocafe told me they have replaced 10 nomads so far. The stitching on that bag near where the straps attach to the bag give way. They have stopped recommending the bags even though they sell them. They feel rynox does not do quality baggage systems and should stick to apparel,and leave the bags to viaterra.

I saw the defect bag. The stitching is god awful weak - single stitch, no reinforcement nothing. Apparently they give way when loaded up near to capacity. Rynox's response to this issue was to tell retailers to suggest to customers to load less than 60 litres. This is nuts. Then why advertise 60?

I trust the guys at motocafe, there was no hardsell at all. I spent 2 hours sitting and exploring different bags with them. They weren't too fond of the dirtsack either.

I will head back shortly and get the via pro v2.0.

Oh that's too bad. Maybe lately they have gone bad with the bag quality since they are getting a lot of profit from the riding gear. Have an Optimus tank bag purchased sometime around 2012 and it's still going strong.

Will need to explore some more options now.
