Ready for winter change

Tired of the backpack thing when going on 2 day trips. Bungee it down, when something is needed un bungee it, re bungee it....
Now I can access clothes by unzipping the large flap. And when I arrive it comes off with 2 connectors. Looks a bit large but, I can fit some tennis shoes, shorts, tees, light sweatshirt...

Stuff it correctly - and U can use it as a backrest .

I used to use my duffel bag on the sissy bar of my 650-4 CSR Kawajappy and run

They didn't make cool stuff like that in my price range back then.

Nice. +1 on the backrest idea

Just to throw in as a variation: I got the premium collection luggage set from Harley (2012 edition) and they are awesome. The small one is capable of carrying a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and some more things, the big one can accommodate much more stuff. They look cool too.

Another vote for the backrest. The tour pack thats pictured in my avatar use to ride on my Sporty. Pack that thing right and I could run all day long, put my feet up on the highway pegs, was like sitting in a chair... Good purchase.

I just sprung for throwover bags. with the supports under and tied to them (i use zip ties) They are perfect. AND the ones I have dont really take away from the look of the bike either.

I was able to pack 4 days worth of clothes for the wife and I and still buy tshirts along the way at the dealers we would stop at.
