Soft tail/seat bag

For pottering around and short trips I didn't want a top box as it's not a look I'm keen on. So I've bought a softbag.

It's a BMW Softbag 3 small size and, imho, it fits the bike perfectly. It can also go on racks but I've yet to buy one of those. 20 mins to put the seat straps on - you need to remove the passenger seat to do this although you could, if you prefer, have straps going all over the outside of the bike.

127 in the UK although you can get them cheaper from Germany but then have to pay shipping - I got mine shipped free from Bahnstormer in the UK - free AND next day. Shows how much profit margin there is in BMW bags lol.

30 - 35 litres with a waterproof (not yet tested!) main compartment and 4 other non- waterproof compartments/pockets.

I have to stand on the foot-peg and swing my leg over it but then I stand on the foot-peg with the side-stand down to get on and off anyway (and no problems yet with the side-stand - seems just as sturdy as other bikes).

I've been looking for a small (2/4ish ltr) tail bag to mount onto my rear rack for carrying small stuff. Must be an age thing, but I remember enduro bikes in the 80's with small rear gags fitted as standard. Haven't found anything suitable yet unfortunately.

I haven't fitted it on my CRF1000 yet but I on my CRF250L i was very impressed with the Kriega US20, I have a number of Kreiga bags and highly recommend them.

Maybe the Kreiga 5 ltr one would do nicely ?

Kriega US30 here... Permanently attached and left empty most of the time. Handy if I want to stop at the supermarket and pick up a few things on the way home from somewhere though.

I fitted this to mine, it's by SW Motech, fits a treat and expands enough to fit your full face helmet if needed, super quality too,
