I'm coming to Thailand this week for who knows how long. I have decided to pick up a CRF250L of similar. There are plenty for sale. Some with luggage, others without. My question is, if I buy one without luggage set up, how much does it cost to purchase in Thailand?? I was thinking the hard case saddlebags unless somebody suggest something different.. Input??

*Note* I'm traveling with a Osprey Farpoint 70L and it is packed FULL. I need some kind of luggage that still fit everything in my bag plus my bag

Don't know about prices but can advise that the rear subframe is open to cracking and breaking under too much weight, I would guess that the side box holders may offset some of the weight off the rear subframe, but the top box won't.

Honestly you don't need to carry much luggage when touring here.
Enough clothes for 5 days, a few tools, some rain wear & away you go.
I'm always amazed at how much extra gear & luggage many people carry.
You don't need to carry the kitchen sink with you.
A "small bag" on the back & away you go.

Only problem is my bag is already packed and I'm on the way. I won't have a centralized spot. I'm just going to ride from place to place, country to country. I might be able to just strap my bag to the bike, but it's a fairly large bag.
