tail bags

Hey guys,

Anyone use a tail bag for daily commuting? What are you running? pics?

I'm thinking about this one

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.

I am curious to see how a tail bag would work, I went with some Bungee cord knobs so I can bungee things down in the rear. I would like to see and hear about how it works if you go that route.

Here is another tail bag that I am considering... I wish stores around me would stock products. It is so hard buying things without seeing them in person

Which ever one I get I'll post pics...

Which bungee cord knobs did you get? I was looking at the cobra ones...

I have that Tourmaster tailbag. I used it on my Ninja 650 before I sold it, now it is on my wife's Honda Shadow Phantom. It works well on that. If you want pics or some more info let me know.

I agree pics would be awesome. Thanks.

How do you like the bag? I'm looking for something to allow me to pack lunch and maybe a light rain jacket.

There's plenty of room for a lunch and light jacket. The sides expand a little to give you a bit more room. I can take more pictures if you want some of the bag sitting on a 900LT.

MC, thanks for the pics, it makes it easier to see it in relation to a bike as opposed to just a picture on the internet... It actually is a bit bigger than I imagined. What do you think of the bag as far as the bungees go? Do they hold well on the back of your wife's shadow?

I also have the coretech bag. The bungees work really well and there is a non skid rubber on the bottom that also helps keep it gripped to the luggage rack. Perfect for a commuting bag. Also come with a rain cover.
