Tail bag?

Anyone run one? How is it secured? Who makes a good one for the RC(or any sporty for that matter) Thanks TD

oh, what about saddle bags...Please spare me the "why would you put saddle bags on a sport bike" lecture!

Actually, I'm begining to think about that myself. Just a small discreet one, enough for a change of clothes and a couple misc. items. I saw the one on the grey ducati you rode with on the 7/7 thread. What did you think of that one? Maybe a little tall for me, but if it compacts some...

Ya Jon, it was pretty nice. Thats actually what has me considering one. I have a tank bag but, for overnight rides(one up coming) id like some more room.

Randy's(yellow st4) tail bag was actually a tank bag he had adapted to the tail on his st. He used the supplied straps to attach it to the saddle bag frames. He used some type of packing foam to cushion the straps as they crossed over the painted portion of the tail section. Although functional, it wasnt all that atheistically pleasing

I dont have the luxury of any good attachment points on the RC
So i was hoping for some feedback from fellow RC'rs...
I dont know what Rick(grey st) was using on his bike?

There was someone selling a tailbag on Craigslist last year up in the Cleveland area. It replaced the passenger seat and matched the colors of the RC. I never made my way up there and it eventually sold. So there is a RC specific tailbag out there if you can find one.

This is what I run. It is a tank bag I attach to the rear. I am sure you could adapt a stronger method of attachment in the rear.

That's not bad at all Waldo. Looks quick and practical. I still have the frankenbolts for a front hooking point.
Like those Mori's too!

I just bought this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=221008414776 mostly interested in the tail bag. And a little jab at the HD guys

Even if the saddle bags dont work, its still half what i paid for my tank bag. Shit...i should have bought several more and turned a profit

Ill see if i cant figure a way to run the whole set...anybody got any low mount slip ons for sale

It still allows you access to the truck. When converting for the track I just have to remove the front bolts and the bungy.

The Mori are soo beat up. I have a new set in a box but just don't want to get them beat up.

For the few times I would use it, I like the Waldo adaptation. Simple and cheap.
