Rear Bag Recomdations 850 LeMans
« on: December 25, 2019, 01:30:05 AM »
All,

Looking to buy a strap/Velcro style set of removable bags for my mostly stock 850 Lemans and V7 sport and hoping for some recommendations.

I'm not after panniers or large bags to fit a wardrobe in, just some added carrying capacity for a few days/week away on the bike. Something relatively easy to take off and put on, so when staying at a friend's house etc I can take off and into the house.

Would prob only look to hold a few clean clothes rolled up, some tools and maybe a bit of food etc.

Any recommendations?

I use this banana type bag. Cheap and very useful.

Chase Harper. Worked great and held a lot, and with the tail bag you could carry stuff for the rest of your buddies too.

I have a pair of Eclipse bags. Soft sided with a plastic back. I have used them on my LeMans and Norton. Once the straps are setup it takes seconds to get the bags on and off. No longer made but there is a set on eBay now for small money. Not mine, usual disclamers.

I, too, like banana bags, but they likely provide more carrying capacity than you're after. I also use waterproof roll top duffles (mine are from Ortlieb, in small & medium) lashed on with Rok Straps, or the Kriega R20 or R30, that come with their own fixing system. These are waterproof roll tops as well. A rear rack may be useful for these, but is not necessary.

I also use the Chase Harper bags.  Older bags but have served me well.  Easy on/off system.

I like roll top bags as well. 2 or 3 sizes will cover most any reasonable need from 2-3 days to a month. Bungee cords are dangerous. Rok straps are very good.  R3~

On my old 850 Le Mans, I used a CORTECH (expandable) tail bag + a tank bag.

Good for a week's travel if you motel it... :wink:

Anyone have any experience with Longride bags?

They are a bit more retro/hipster/Cafe but the quality looks great.

Was looking at the Patriot
