But I'll look over whatever else Moose has. They make good off road stuff.
I fit Motion Pro Bead-Breaker levers, 2 T6 combo levers, a mtn bike pump, 2 HD tubes, a BeadBuddyII, and more into a Moose Dualsport front fenderpack on a braced fender.

How big of a tailpack do you need?

Big enough to hold what's on your list, plus a decent first aid kit and two small water bottles.

I found one

I found just the right one - at the local motorcycle shop.

I stopped in at Folsom Cycle (my favorite local shop) to see if they had any other options. First they showed me one of those Moose Racing ones as has already been mentioned here, that is slightly larger than the one I already have on the back of the bike - too small. Then they showed me a huge yellow pack that might work on the KTM for a week-long trip - way too big for the XR.

Finally, they showed me one of these - perfect.


And because they had lost the straps that allow you to turn it into a backpack, they knocked twenty bucks off of the price. I'm happy now.

I just need to load all of the right stuff into it and I'll be set to ride out in the middle of nowhere, far from civilization. And it will be easier to make sure that I bring the right stuff every time I'll need it. Thanks to all for the suggestions.

Here's the full description:

Looks like I've got a few decent choices now. Thanks to all.

Anybody else got some good recommendations?
I bought a XRL with a similar top bag...





Works great and as another inmate mentioned, it expands sideways!

Make a tool tube and mount it to the front of the frame down low. I had one on my bike as well. Place all the heavy tools in it.

I have the same one except mine has a Cortech label on it.

I found the mounting bungees to be less than confidence-inspiring, but it's never fallen off and it can hold a fair amount. The expandability is nice.

Wolfman Expedition dry duffle. The medium holds plenty and you can cinch it down if you are carrying less. The material is grippy so it doesn't slide around. Completely waterproof.

+1 on the Wolfman Dry Duffel. I use the size large on my Wee-Strom behind me. Lots of room when fully open, cinches down for less. Love it.

Namaste'

I have the Wolf tail bag, and it's been great, although bigger than what you want. The Peak is the Wolf's little brother.
I love my Wolfman, it never let me down and never fallen off even when my bike found itself upside down.
