Luggage and More.
An interview with Andy White of Andy Strapz fame:
Motorcycle thermals made by a motorcyclist! You’d reckon
they would work?
I interview Andy White of Andy Strapz fame and get quite a
look at his motorycling world. Every product in Andy’s
catalogue (a lot) has been born of a motorcycling need or
borrowed from another country to benefit motorcyclists here in
Andy started making luggage tie downs called “Andy Strapz”
because he hated “occy straps” and with good cause. As a nurse
Andy had seen one too many eye injury from these cantankerous
little suckers and thought there had to be a better way. Once
his mates saw how good they were, they wanted them too, just
like every mate. And so his business was born.
I even bought a pair of these first run straps while
travelling through Geelong about 8 years ago and had a great
run with them.
Andy needed saddlebags so invented his own! His
Expedition Panniers have had rave reviews and have a lot of
cool features we discuss in this podcast.
Thermal Underwear was a pain in the but for motorcyclists so
Andy designed his own! The sort of stuff he would want to wear
on a bike, and it seems plenty of others do too.
I love the AABagz and wish I hadn’t spent over $200 on the
BMW rear bag recently. Yes, the beemer bag is good but this one
from Andy would have suited my needs better. I just didn’t know
it existed at the time. I recently bought a set of Rain
Off Overgloves from him at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Expo
and we discuss these in length and answer all the questions you
might ask if you wanted to buy some.
In fact we talk about a lot of his gear all made in his own
factory in Melbourne making definetely Made In
Australia. He also backs everything with a no
hassles satisfaction guarantee. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this
interview with Andy. I know I enjoyed the chat.
Over the last 8 years I have bought two sets of piggyback
straps and a set of Rain Off Overgloves from Andy and paid full
price so I give you my no bull “spent money and tried it

I recently got the ABagz for my GS500 as
I needed a bag big enough to carry my laptop to work. It’s
fantastic - so huge I haven’t managed to fill it yet. I
originally ordered the AABagz from Andy but found that my
laptop didn’t quite fit. Andy accepted a return in exchange for
the ABagz. He didn’t even charge postage for the exchange.
Excellent, I love the look of the A Bag and am
intending on making the Tuorismo this October. It looks like
the best bag to strap on the back of the monster. I reckon I’ll
give it a go and review it then.Cheers
