I'm still trying to figure out how to get more storage for long distance cruising. I've looked at the hard top cases like Givi and Coocase but I was wondering if there are any good quality soft tail luggage that our members like.
Looking on the web, I did like the Roadgear, Euro sport jumbo hauler for $115.00
Seems like it is well constructed. There are other options made by Chase Harper (looks cheap), Wolfman, Marsee, RKA but none of them seem quite as large and some are pretty expensive.
I have a GS with a "top of the line" rear rack platform. The rack is about 10" deep by 23" wide.
What have others used for cargo carrying tail packs?
i have been hearing some good things about motofizz bags, available at aerostich... but have not personally tried one.
personally, i use an ortlieb dry duffle bag because they hold a ton and are waterproof. they don't have all the fancy bells and whisles, just a simple roll-side dry bag, but they're reasonably priced and *waterproof*
for day-to-day use, behind your seat, not on your rack, a really nice, simple and very reasonably priced seat bag is the rev-pak seatpak. these things are practically indestructible (damhikt).
hope this helps.
Motofizz M has served me well
Thanks for the input! I did check out the motofizz on the Aerostich website. Nice bag but a bit too deep for my 10" rack. Seems like it would work perfect on my back seat but I'm trying to keep that open for my wife/passenger.
Good to hear from Kentuckid who actually owns and uses the Roadgear bag and seems to like it.
Keep the info coming. I think this thread will become useful for other long distance riders who need quality, well made rear bags.
