Question Compact Tail Bag - Your Favorite?

Yes, I did a search, but couldn't find what I was looking for.

I have an oversized luggage rack on my 950, and would like to find a small to medium sized tail bag to fit. While I do like the Touratech, I don't like the $121 price.

Anyone know of another that is about the same size? I'm just looking for something for around town to throw miscellaneous stuff into, not a touring pack.

Thanks,

Dave

Check out the TourMaster Sport tail bag. http://www.tourmaster.com/product.html?sku=82-417
Inexpensive and easy-on easy-off. Real convenient and nicely built. Looks good on the bike too.

Thanks - I have seen the Cortech, but I'm looking for something smaller. Maybe 10 X 10, instead of the 15" length or the Tourmaster.

So, does that KTM Hard Equipment bag mount directly to the stock rack or does it need an adaptor? Maybe some part numbers?

The KTM bag...

Is called the LC4 tail bag (KTM part # 58412078000) and it use three tie downs and will fit any of the stock KTM racks, My favorite too and can be bought for under $100 bones w/ the 15% discount ($119 retail) from the KTM talk site (which is Munn Racing) Has three separate compartments (Big center and two side) and include a rain cover.

Thanks, I thought that was the bag from the catalog, but remembered seeing it as an LC4 item.

So, this will attach to the oem standard 950 rack? Don's pic looks like he has a Touratech rear rack adaptor or something. Or maybe I'm just not seeing it right?

Think so...

but as that very cool pic shows a TT rack, I too have the TT LC8 rack on my 950 which obviously does work, but I'm pretty sure it does...

I have the smaller one from TT on my 950

it fits very well and is big enough most of the time.
if i need more space, i put my gobi-topcase on the rack

cost 42 = ~50$ (in germany)

Try Rev-pack

I just purchased an "Excursion pack" (VERY LARGE SEAT PACK for back of seat) for my 950 and I can't believe the quality of the pack! I use it with the same KTM tail bag shown in the pics above. But I know that Rev-pack makes two smaller sizes of "seat packs" (also used as tail packs) that would be perfect for what you are describing and they are cheaper than KTMs pack! Check them out, especially the Jr. version. The quality of their products is INCREDIBLE and they are very, VERY reasonably priced for what you get, tough as nails, and almost waterproof even without the rain cover.

http://www.revpack.com/motorcycle/pr.../SeatPack.html

Side note: I had been looking for an alternative to saddle bags for a tour this summer, but I didn't like the idea of having racks on my bike. Then I found Rev-pack's "Excursion" soft luggage seat pack. It is INCREDIBLELY HUGE, built like a tank, looks fantastic on the bike (everyone who has seen it asks where I got it) and very resonable without the cost of racks and hard luggage. I really struggled about this and can't be happier with my decision. You might want to check them out. The pack is basically an upside down "U" that just straddles the seat. It sits totally above the exhaust without bungies or brackets! Also: note that the "Tour Pack" is almost exactly the same pack for just $89! Not bad as an alternative.
