Small Tail Bags - Bring a little stuff with you.

My preference is to ride without luggage. Daily twisty 300 mile loops from a central hotel.

That said, riding in the mountains means that it can be any type of weather during the day. It is also prudent to carry some tools, tire repair kit and air compressor. I have an aluminum mount that I bolt one of two tail bags to my Hyperstrada for each ride.

A small one that easily holds my tools and tire repair stuff.







Or, a larger tail bag that also holds a heated vest and waterproof gloves.







Both have been made water resistant with NeverWet Fabric spray. Both come with rain covers for constant downpour.

Any photos of the brackets themselves? I'm assuming they slip through a channel in the bottom of the bag to hold them in place?

The two aluminum holders for the bags are simply flat aluminum stock from Home Depot. Cut to the width of the passenger handrails, with holes to match the 4 threaded holes already in place. Remove the little plastic inserts and thread in common bolts. You also can see in the top photo that I added small fender washers to the top of each aluminum mount. This is because the steel will spread the stress of the connection across a wider section of the aluminum.

The top photo reveals what I did to mount the aluminum to the bike.

I drilled two holes in the center of each aluminum holder, then melted two holes in each bag.

The larger bag has a large aluminum plate with two holes. A plate to support any weight I may carry.

The smaller bag is secured with large fender washers.

Easy and proven reliable over 3,000 miles of use, on the street and off-road.

All made with simple tools in my garage.

I also cut off all straps on both bags.

The seat can't be removed when the large bag is in place, but is easily removed when the small bag is there.

This is the system I've used on a number of bikes to secure tail bags. Works well for me and makes everything very secure.

I use a Kriega US10 bag which connects to the 4 loops under the saddle it fits perfectly, is 100% waterproof as a drybag and holds 10 litres so plenty enough for most days out.

I just ordered the Nelson Rigg Jumbo tail bag. $116, Rev Zilla.

For a temp bag, I'm using one of my Tank Bags on rear rack, but it's just too small to fit much.

I'm hoping this "Jumbo" tail bag will not be too obese. Easy returns on Revzilla, but hoping I can make it work.
Here is pic of the tiny tank bag on there now. It fits good on the bike, IMO, but can't get what I need in it for an overnight ride. Zero room under seat on this bike.

Where do you guys put your tool kit? My stock one is under the seat ... but I'll need a more complete kit for longer rides ... plus tubeless plug kit, pump et al.

Any longer rides I'll use panniers, which are huge ... a bit wide!
Can't complain. Hard Bag kit for FJ-09 are OVER $900!


Nelson-Rigg tank bag temp mount.
