    Tail bag options for gen2 with BMW Luggage?

    I'm curious if folks have any experience with the BMW tail bag that fits with the BMW luggage system or other options that work with the factory mount?  On my old bike, triumph sprint st, I would ride with a tank bag all the time for odds and sods during day trips, but on the S1000XR I don't want to clutter the cockpit with a tank bag.  I don't like the look of the bike with just the top box for just trips and was wondering what smaller options exist.  All the options I've found so far seem to want to use their own mounting hardware.

    Really depends upon how large you want the topbox to be. Here is a soft bag option (13L): https://www.s1000rrforum.com/threads/touratech-soft-tail-bag-for-the-gen-2-xr.249530/#post-2434999 . I use this topbox for short day trips.
    The OEM is 30L: (https://www.ascycles.com/bmw/2020/S1000XR/Optional%20Equipment%20and%20Accessories%20Motorrad/Topcase%2030I.html#PartsTable).
    Or, you can BIG: Large Top Box (49 liter) with backrest ( part# 77439829378 ) for Sports Touring- (https://www.s1000rrforum.com/threads/my-2021-xr-sport-designed-for-sport-touring.247056/)

    Best,

    I use the BMW 30L OEM top case for daily commutes to/from work as it easily fits my 16" Macbook Pro, gym clothes and a few extras while keeping the bike on the slender side to help with lane sharing. Also think the 30L case looks better, and more aerodynamic on the bike, compared to the monstrous 49L top case.

    Thanks folks.  I have the 30L box that I plan to use for multi-day trips with the side panniers, but didn't want to use it for shorter rides.  While it does hold a boat load of stuff I kinda like the look of the bike without hard cases at all for those spirited rides on canyon roads when you've dropped your luggage at the hotel.  The touratech one linked above is along the lines of what I was looking for if not a bit on the large size.  It looks like it attaches to the stock top box carrier. 

    Anyone have the BMW tail bag (called "Bag for Luggage Carrier" in the catalog)?  A picture of how it mounts is really what I'm looking for, but searching the web I only find the stock photos of it from the BMW website.  It's a 4.5L bag and has a waterproof main compartment.

    I believe you are talking about this one https://www.ascycles.com/bmw/2020/S1000XR/Optional%20Equipment%20and%20Accessories%20Motorrad/Bag%20for%20luggage%20rack.html#PartsTable
    If so, I do have it. It has a lip that slides over the aft section of the factory tail rack and two each quick release straps for the sides.

    No pics on the bike, but i have the Held Tenda tail bag. 11 ltrs max capacity. It sits on on duo section of seat. It has a base which i strapped to the seat. The zip off bag has a shoulder strap, and GPS, Bose QC20 etc go in it when I park the bike. Just enough space for a light rain jacket, apple, sandwich etc. Fits the shape of the seat ok. I pulled the front straps thru the holes in the base pan of the seat so they are fairly well fixed

    Works great for short day rides and only take a minute or two to remove/install. Has a nice pocket under the lid that my FasTrak toll tag slides into, and enough space to store a few items I may need on the ride. I've had it since 2017, and still in great condition.
