Sometimes I don’t want to fill my pockets with my phone, purse, house keys and chocolate bars – but it doesn’t warrant carrying round a huge rucksack. This cool little rear bag offers a great solution.
It fits on the back of my KTM 390 Duke by two Velcro straps under the pillion seat, and turns the empty cushion into a handy storage space that doesn’t ruin the lines of the bike. When fitted it makes the motorcycle a single-seater – but that’s fine as I never take pillions. Plus if you did, the ease of fitment means it can be taken off in seconds. The black and orange colour-scheme ties in with the bike, and the elasticated section on top is convenient for storing my waterproofs when I’m not wearing them.
What I particularly like about the bag is the fact it opens up to a huge 30 litres, meaning I can fit my helmet in there when I’m not riding and the carry handle on the top means I can carry it round if I don’t want to leave it unattended on the bike. It comes with an orange waterproof cover to keep my belongings dry in the rain which simply drawstrings round the edge of the bag, plus it fits in neatly when not in use.
