Well between work and life the poor Tenere has been kinda dry docked. There is a Southern
Utah ride being put together for next weekend. It's suppose to be thumper friendly.
Since the Tenere is really two thumpers it should be twice as good, right?

Anyway, there may be some fancy footwork going on and I didn't want side bags.
Had this Moto-Fizz sitting around and I think it will be the transport of choice.
These things are the best soft bag/trunk for motorcycles. Really well designed.
This only has one end extended, so they are roomy too.



Gotta hold caming gear and some food. Plenty of room. They also hold a Kolpin
gas/water tank perfect.



On a side note, here's the other reason the bikes are ignored. The ice is off the water
and it's time to get wet.

Wow, Pluric...

And I thought I was the only one who loved those MotoFizz bags!

I've got both the small (http://www.aerostich.com/motofizz-ca...ags-small.html):





And the medium (http://www.aerostich.com/medium-moto...-seat-bag.html):





And they are some of the very best motorcycle luggage I have ever owned. Those Japs are sure an ingenious bunch!

Best of all the MotoFizz bags, straps, buckles, etc. wear like iron, and the bags come with all the extras in the package. Pricey, but definitely worth every penny once you use 'em for a while.

Nice pic!

What kind of tail bag is that? Any other pics, or a link, etc.?

Thanks!

Another angle:


I found it in the equipment section here on the board. It's an REI kayak bag. I bought it for my dual sport, but till I get some luggage on this thing I swap it back and forth.

Many thanks!

But damn, wouldn't you know it... It is now no longer available.

Story of my life.

Had a perfect use for one or two of those! Oh, well.

Don't tell the rangers, I use the family boat for the wake. The Speedster is wake jumping
maybe a little closer than the recommended distance.

I've ridden this rig as it stands at 160kmh (GPS) on the highway. 80kmh standing up over speed humps and some very fast bumpy off road with and without a passenger. Quiet frankly I don't notice much difference as to when I'm riding along with no luggage. Just seems to feel the same??

Yamaha does say that the max speed should be 135kmh. BMW says 180kmh on the aluminum panniers for my friends GS1200. Whatever they say, common sense tells me that 160kmh is just fine. Going into the stupid zone over that.

You can still find them around, but not for the $20 special price:

It does have two Beast motors and it got to the lake on two wheels. Does that count?

You should have seen the pop knot the poor girl got when this landed, She flew into the dash, Owww.

Thanks for the link and the info. Should have know somebody would be selling them besides REI... And damn, it seems like you can find almost anything through Amazon these days! Should'a been the first place I looked!

OTOH, sure looks the reviews there paint a less than stellar picture for the bag, though. Have you had any trouble with the zippers, or the straps pulling free?

Looking some more on Amazon I found this one...

http://www.amazon.com/Seattle-Sports...f=pd_sbs_sg_19






And it actually looks like it might work better for the idea I have. Most trips I have my Yamaha side cases mounted, as that way any luggage weight is carried low and balanced. But on some rides I just want my tire plug kit, pump, and maybe some room for a camera, shield cleaning stuff, etc., so I want something *LOW* I can quickly tie on my Altrider rear rack. But I am also thinking of getting one Altrider's RotoPax mounts for the rack to carry one of their fuel jugs, and I want whatever *LOW* bag I get to be able to tie down *ON TOP* of the RotoPax fuel jug.

I could use my small MotoFizz bag, but that's kind of overkill, as it had tons of space, not to mention it would sit up pretty high. I got short enough legs as it is (29" inseam), and I don't need anything back there on that rack any higher than it needs to be!

Thanks again!

Dallara

Nice in white, I like it.
The Karoo are lot cheaper in Spain than the TKC. I like it but in the rear wheel they dont last a lot. The TKC is harder. So the Karoo are OK for a long trip in the front wheel but noy in the rear.
I'm just arriving from Sardinia (nearly 1700km off road) and it was a good combination.
