    Nice! Haha. I actually have the mount on that VFR they're made by a guy on VFRD. I guess I could ditch my Givi and move to a milk crate. Nice!

    I've used them to keep my rain gear on my tail pack on week long, 6000 km trips on my RC-51. Works great. Lasts long!

    I have a three Givi set up but on longer trips I still use a cargo net for some stuff.

    Tail bag works pretty well. I also have a cargo net, which is bigger and bulkier, but gets the job done. As always make sure your gear is in good working order. I have a tank bag which I prefer to the backpack, but to each their own. That's my 2 cents.

    Listen, I've got two yellow and one black milk crate left, to the highest bidder. You pay the shipping. The orange one left with my KTM 950, the Green on left with my Red KLR.
    I'll even wash the dog piss off them.

    I just got some ROK STRAPS though I haven't had a chance to try them out yet... I've used a cargo net before, but seeing as I don't like to leave stuff on my bike, it's just easier to backpack it IMHO.

    Best so far.... A tail bag that hides itself when not in use and pop up when in use. Nice carbon fibre look and yes you can sit on it!

    That's true. I'd like to swap out the yellow one I put on the Ninja for black. If anyone has a black milk crate, let me know. Has anyone tried painting one of the yellow ones?

    What about a tailbag designed specifically for your bike?

    I have one of these for my VFR. Totally awesome, nice storage capacity and pretty secure. I use it around town all the time.

    I'll hook you up. Don't paint the yellow one. I have a guy with a 748 Biposto that will need it.

    OK, here's the TRICK set-up: part milk-crate as luggage rack / base, PLUS cargo net! beat that, SW Motech!



    Ride fast if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime.
