Anyone use a tail bag?

Recommended Posts

I've had enough carrying a backpack just to carry my waterproofs and disc lock, can anyone recommend a smallish tail bag I can leave permanently on the bike?

Do Yamaha sell a specific one for your bike?

I use a tank bag that locks onto an adapter on the fuel filler, nice and easy to remove and I've got locking rings on two of my bikes so nice and transferable

I think Kriega sell something which may work? Don’t know if they can be left on the bike (and if they could whether someone would want to pinch it?)

If I do need additional storage then I just use a roll bag on the back, but as Blackie alluded to, depending on the bike / size of pack it can be an art getting on. I tend to mount my bike like you would a horse when it’s fully loaded.

A tank bag has my essentials in for quick access, but I don’t need to remove mine during petrol stops.

Yamaha don't make a specific tail bag.

Ironically I didn't even think about a tank bag, even though I've had a bagster tank cover with mounts on for the last year. I've just kept it on to stop the tank getting scratched when parked amongst the bikes outside work.

I'll take a look but I don't think they do any tank bags which still give easy access to the filler cap.

Had a look at Kriega but they look like bags and I'm quite vain, I'd like something which looks like a small shell bag, similar to the hard shell type motorbike backpacks.

If you like that style, maybe try Givi? I just Googled on my work laptop and saw model number ST607 which is a shell design. Looks quite big (tall) though.

I was having similar problems a while back, didnt want a tailpack as I struggled to get my leg over the added height, tank bag stops access to the filler, so I bought a largeish leg holster, it takes all the daily stuff, phone/cash/discklock/keys. Depends how small you can roll up the waterproofs

That would have been perfect if half the size

Still has the hassle of taking on and off, I'll eventually get the right tail bag, just harder to find than expected.

what about a cycling tail pack?

 

might have to adapt it, but might do the trick
