I also just noticed that is the first partial glimpse of a brand new Altrider branded tank bag in that last pic. This thread is like a moto luggage strip tease show.

We're so stoked to share this that I couldn't resist!

One more session shooting the whole story - it'll be worth the effort.


FWIW.... would a flap over the bottom storage pockets be a good idea? Don't want to find out my tools left the party somewhere back on the trail...


IMO this bag looks like a "better mousetrap".

I need luggage for my 95 Tiger. This design has my interest, as does this one:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=927215

(Yes, I know these are rack bags, but rackless are in the works)

Biding my time until more details are available.

Even though the info here so far hasn't provided much in terms of specifics, at least those of us in the market have been notified that there is one more contender in the ring.
Regardless of where you spend your money, I am just happy to see so many great designs out there.
(It would be great to see a comparison test between all of the major soft rackless bags on a multiday trip. Probably just wishful thinking)

This is a great idea for all designers.

My 2 cents worth is I like the idea of the retro-reflective logos. I don't think they are grossly large on the product. Almost everything else associated with motos has logos plastered over it--why be ashamed of having Altrider on your luggage? I think it would be nice once production gets underway if you could offer the Horse shoe part of the bag in say black, red, bright yellow, and orange.

Ooohhhhh man this looks good.

On another note being able to purchase the ice bucket part of the bike separately would be nice if you rode two bikes regularly.

Mud/dirt/blood/etc. will cover the logos in no time!

Ready for 2014 Death Valley NOOB Rally

Thanks for responding to my pm...any chance a set of the bags will be ready before this March? I'm ready to buy and/or test the "bitchin" hi-viz ones during the upcoming Death Valley Rally.

Whoa, nice!! My last Fandango is done, now, I got my money's worth, but time for sumpthin new. GL is promising a Fandango Tank Bag "Pro" for 2014, whatever that is.

Will this new AltRider tank bag fit into the space left when I remove the Glove Box on my 990? I think you remember seeing the GL on my bike when we met up in Sisters a couple years ago....

I really like the idea of slipping the big back bag into a "holder" that's well-strapped to the bike.

Looks great! Would like to be on the list for when they come out, as long as you can ship to Canada.
