I use a Kreiga us-10 for all my tools and two tubes.

Sits on the pillion seat no problem at all.

Hi,
I'm using Givi XS313 on the Pillion Seat. It has around 20 liters and fluorescent waterproof cover built into the rear pocket.

I'm still considering my options about hard luggage.. this is actually code for: Im too broke at the moment to buy panniers and this is unlikely to change any time soon.

While I still had a bit of cash spare, I measured the pillion seat and rack.. and then looked at Dri-Bags. Ortlieb do a 49Litre bag that is a perfect fit within this length and this will be enough for any non-camping weeks away next year.

I have a givi v47 top box and run a cheap 70 liter waterproof duffel rok strapped to the pillion. Works great and has never failed me.

I got this in large:

I got the Tusk set up and I like it. I can put my 2 gallon rotopax on the tail if want or a 12 pack.
If going on a long trip then i redo things as needed. Before the pillion rack I just put it on the seat and it worked fine.

I use the Givi as well, a handy size for when I dont want to carry to much, I have a top box as well but mainly use the givi tail bag

Drum Dog: Nice looking bike. What are your crash bars and skid plate? Your bike looks like a 2017?

Looks like that bag is expandable. Can you fit a full face helmet in there? Looks like the Givi XS316 XStream 35L Tail Bag would hold a helmet. Like the look of the 20L but being able to throw a helmet in the bag would be handy.

Thanks it is a awesome bike,The bike is a early 2016. I was one of the first guys to get one around here. The crash bars and skid plate are SW MOTECH.
The skid plate has been tested and passed. I rarely lay a bike over so the crash bars have not been tested but I think they will do fine under most situations.
