Which Backpack?

Recommended Posts

I just started commuting with my Z and needed a backpack to carry my lunch, laptop and such. Does anybody have any suggestions? I'm currently looking at a few Ogio's. Oh and my commute consists of a lot of highway if that matters.

Kinda vague....but if you have a lot of stuff (I got binoculars, lunch, towel, two sets of clothes, mask, and a bunch of other stuff) but my dream backpack is the Oakley "sink" Backpack. The thing is rugged. With tons of spaces and a lot of hooks on the outside to strap stuff on. And it says laptop sleeve.

I Like it alot, but pricey. More like under $100

i've got the special edition Spongebob squarepants backpack with drink and crayon holder built in!!, works great!

Freaken awesome my kid would love it. By the way I must say I really like the look of the Suz plastics kit, do you know of any way to purchase just the back end pieces?

Ogio 1850. Water bladder, tool pouch, rain cover, etc. Plenty of storage. No laptop sleeve, but one would fit in the main compartment.

i would just use a normal kind of backpack (waterproof) at about 2000-3000 cu in capacity with an aluminum stay in it to help hold the weight. Make sure it has a good padded waist belt. I think the mc specific backpacks are overpriced for what you get. I would check REI or other outdoor sports shops.

Without a doubt. Very comfortable too! The 1850 does it all, well.

Anyone riding a dirt bike should avoid REI like the plague. REI contributes significantly to organizations hell bent on shutting down off road recreation.

I have the Ogio "no drag" pack and like it. Lots of internal pockets w/ lap top sleeve. Very comfortable while on my drz.

I have a Kriega R35 and a Lowe Airzone 45+10. The Kriega is bike specific and a good bit of gear.

I use a northface, its waterproof and has held up great for a few years. The slot for carrying the water bladder is where I slide my laptop into. Has a chest strap and waste stratp which I find ideal for riding. Search around, I doubt the most expensive is really needed.

There's the thing... I didn't think that it was expensive at $200 (in Oz)... I thought that it represented excellent value compared to some of the medium and high priced, brand name, Chinese made snot that is pushed into the consumer market.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
