    Tail Bag

    I have the BMW small softbag 3 tail bag (30 liters) and it's still on the big side. I don't use even half of it.

    Just wondering what some of you are using that are on the smaller side.

    Thanks in advance  :028

    For the money, the Nelson Riggs ones are hard to argue against.

    Good call :028:

    Did some quick research and this looks like what I'm looking for. A lot smaller than my old trusted BMW bag but big enough to suit my needs. Plus I won't have to pull a muscle swinging my leg over the shorter Nelson Riggs :001:

    Bonus: it's $20 cheaper on Amazon.

    If I'm looking for something like this, or any other luggage, I search google images, find something I like the look of and track it down. It's worked many times for me.. just saying  :028:

    Someone on here fitted a Triumph sport tailpack to his XR - it was a great fit and looked the part.

    If it helps, I use the Kriega US 5 for really small items.
    Or the Kriega US 10 for a bit more.
    Been used in the most awful weather, never leaked, great quality.
    Very happy.

    I use the Givi UT813 tail bag which is expandable. Designed to strap to the givi luggage plate if you happen to have givi top box. Find it perfect for spring to autumn day trips.

    I modified an old magnetic tankbag (pictured) onto a quick release tank ring mount then put the mount on the rear carrier, also have a small I-ON tank bag so can use either depending on what size I require, both quick release from the carrier . . . . .
