990 bigger tail bag

What kind of nearly or really water tight bag can you get for less than say $80 that you can hard strap to the tail plate thingy but still open on top whiles it mounted. I am thinking 11x11x20 or backpack sized. I use a backpack now but it gets terribly grouse from mud&water&rain and stinks.

Its needs to take abuse. I want to put it on and leave it, and be able to remove stuff without undoing the bottom straps. Something for tubes, air pump/slime, jacket liner, rain suit, spoons, 6pack...

It needs to be survivable & like sitting out in parking lots for a year.

(I'd get hard bags but I like riding/sliding mud & streams and think I'd break my leg. I was going to get side wolfmann bags for my wolf side rack (muffler protectors really), but I'd just rip those up in 2 days of Arkansas for sure on some gravel nap. I got some crappy water proof stuff for getting to/from campsites already I just strap on that wouldn't last one wreck)

TIA - happy holidays out there!

I tried to find a weather proof soft pack for the tail and never did. I went with a Givi scooter case for the tail to keep my stuff in that had to stay dry. The racks allowed me to mount soft Wolfman bags or hard pelican cases. Beauty in my eye was dry storage that didn't get in the way in the brush or snag my leg if I fell. Yes, this would tolerate falls and dumping it on the trail.






Just posting up as something to consider...

Sounds like your the perfect custom for a Pelican case. Hit up your local craigslist as these cases are used by photographers, various industrial uses and service industries and you can find them in your price range.

Just bolt it on and forget about it.

FWIW, I had a Pelican on the back of mine too! It wasn't easily removable and locking it securely required two padlocks which bounced around. It was very durable and looked better than the Givi scooter case!

This is what I have. I have two TSA approved locks on it. I store all my tools, pump, tubes, spare socks, wet weather gloves in it. It looks good too !!

I have used an Eclipse tank bag on the back for years, works for me. I have a CamelBack waterproof backpack cover for water protection. Is narrow, won't break your leg, top loads, rides well. Make a thin plywood plate for it that mounts to the rack, also acts as a rear mud shield. Added straps to the plate to facilitate cargo net use too. You might need more water protection than this setup of mine, but the price is right, I got the bag used.

I've got the HP branded version of that box and the exact same bike too! FYI, I had to get the subframe welded from putting too much weight in the box!

Here is a rock solid piece of kit. And it is coming in a 12 litre version soon. Comes with hardware to fix it permanently to your luggage rack.

Wow thanks a lot for that link which inevitably led to THIS link (scroll down in link to vid at bottom - impressive stuff this Enduristan, too bad I already bought a full Gobi set as I would rather have had these plus the 6.5L mini packs in your original link): http://blackdogcw.com/black-dog-shop...gs-detail.html. Granted, for some reason they look way better on the 990 S in the vid then they do even on an 1190 R in the pics.

It looks like they have incredibly good quality and design features - very very well thought out and probably excellent value. The above soft panniers for instance don't even need racks which usually add a large part of the cost for pannier systems. I look forward to the 12L version of the ones in your link.......then I'll I'll get three. One for topcase and one for each Gobi pannier.

Or since 20% off Tornado bags but I may get them as they go from S to M to L to XL and a S or M on each panniers would be perfect and an L or even XL on pass seat behind me. Better not get too big though and bigger isn't always better. Or get the same sizes/quantities in Tornado2's for new features (good vid here): http://blackdogcw.com/black-dog-shop...ag-detail.html
