Wolfman Tank panniers test

I strapped a pair of Wolfman tank panniers to the bike to see if they would work. The bags can be made to work, but not without some modification. There are couple of issues. 1. The upper straps pretty much have to be placed on both sides of the tank cap, which places the bags…

Giant Loop saddlebag on Honda 250 Rally

Luggage testing continues. The Giant Loop saddlebags are also on loan for testing and I’m not sure which model bags they are. The GL bags fit on the bike quite nicely. The fatter arse of the Rally support the underside of the bags well and strapping the bags securely to the bike is easy. In…

Tank bag for the 250 Rally

I borrowed a Wolfman Enduro tank bag from a friend to prove myself what I already suspected, which is that a tank bag doesn’t really work for the Rally. (For me that is) Why? 1. The bag needs to be quite far from the bars* in order to avoid the bars from pushing against the…

Tail bag for the 250 Rally

After some searching I found a budget version for a tail bag. The Giant Loop and Wolfman bags are the obvious top shelf choices for this, but I wanted to spend about half what the premium bags go for.   The medium size version of the Held Iconic Evo bag fits like a glove on…

PM Racks luggage rack

The rack feels pretty sturdy and is not likely to give up on you especially if you stay within the recommended load limits…

Luggage rack

I need something to strap my stuff on for longer rides. Carrying a back pack is not a viable option for anything but the shortest of rides. I’ve done some research on whats available for the bike. I’m assuming anything made for the CRF 250 L will also fit the Rally. I left out the…

Toolbox & tools

Slowly getting to know the bike. Started easy and took a look in the toolbox. The box itself is a bit larger than in the standard L, but the tools are nothing to write home about. I think bare minimum describes the content.
