    Which size duffel works well as a tail bag for KTM990? My aftermarket rack is about 12x12".

    This is the Kriega 30. I have both tubes, tire irons, patch kit (including a pump), first aid kit, electrical repair kit (Including a meter) and an extra set of clothing including gloves in case I go swimming.

    I use shaving kits you can get at Walmart for all the kits and different size dry bags (Also at walmart camping section) for tire Irons, tubes and clothing so I can just disconnect the straps and dump everything out on the ground.

    +1 on Kriega set ups

    I used to travel with a 45-50 liter dry bag. It worked as it's supposed to work, lots of room and waterproof. They are fine.
    Kriega bags are several steps ahead: due to its straps design they are as fast and easy to install/uninstall as a hard topcase, they are waterproof, easy access to inside by its side without removing any strap, and you can stack other Kriega bags if more room is needed.

    I travel with a Kriega US30 and US10 on top. On the small one I carry the items that very likely I'll need more often so they are at hand. If you need more room you can put a US20 over the 30, or take the small one if you're for a short spin.
    One of the best piece of equipment I have.

    I use a Kreiga US-10 or 20 for everyday use on my rack.

    When travelling I use the Kreiga Overlander system with 2 x 15 on each side, plus the KTM bag on the top. The KTM bag comes with straps with loops on the end and Kreiga style clips on the bag, the bag can be undone while still strapped to the bike. When the bag is removed the 4 straps clip together so you can ride the bike without risk of losing the spraps or entanglement. There are 2 carrying handles on the bag which velcro together for carrying by hand and also a loose shoulder strap that clips onto the bag.

    I also have the full 3 piece HB hard luggage, but never use it now!
