Thanks for the suggestion. I have a pretty good size SeaLine bag, a roll down top, kayaking bag that is bullet proof and 100% waterproof. I plan to strap that on the bag of the bike. What I'm looking for is a tank bag to hold maps and other odds and ends so that I don't have to stop every time I need directions.

What days would you actually need. I am taking the Buell to WV tomorrow and again the end of next week. But what days you need it?

I have a tankbag that would be good for that. It's older, but has all the storage you need and comes with a rainproof cover. I'll take pics when I get home.

I'm really not going to be picky on a loaner. I'll take it sight unseen if you don't mind parting with it for a week. Let me know and I can come get it later.

KJH- I'd hate to cut it close with yours. Thanks a ton for the offer though!

HorseHead, have a safe trip.

Packed up and heading into the land of no cell coverage until Sunday, I think the Tag photo makes for an easy find, if not click HERE.
Hoping to have a place to ride to on my home Sunday. Think North.

Mr. Toast's GSXR is quite nice as well!! Though a little cramped for someone my size.

Much thanks to Rick for kindly parting with his gear to a fellow inmate (and a new one at that)! I'm really looking forward to the ride. Kind of funny though that the highs in PA next week are mid 50s. Oh well, dress warm right?

Sorry I'm late to seeing this. I have a set of soft saddle bags that you could use. They fit my ZR7 well and I'm sure they would work on the Bandit.

Thanks for the offer. I'm going to load up all of my stuff today and see if I can get everything into what I already have. If not, I'll definitely take you up on that.

Sent you a pm with my contact info. They're yours if you need/want them. Here is pic of what they look like on the bike.
