My question: do you know of newer-model sports bikes with more trunk for our junk?? I'd like to be able to carry more in my next bike

lots of bikes from 80cc to 1200cc
Current : ZX11
KX80







With .0125% storage under the seat...I, along with most everyone has struggled to find a happy medium. For years I have used these to carry larger everyday items ( work shoes, jacket liners, extra gloves etc. ) http://ogio.com/moto-140f6969d5213fd...61e/saddle-bag

I have a large tank bag that Can attach to them if need be. But being in IT I generally always have a laptop with me. Which means a backpack... and I hate it LOL but it works for daily commuting. Just make it as light as you can.

come the weekend the backpack stays at home and I will only use the saddle bags if need be. Otherwise for weekend rides they come off as well

I am trying right now to find a good way to carry my work badge. with some way I can quickly present it to the gate to open up the parking garage.. I look funny pressing my chest to card reader... ( card sits in chest pocket )

I use the Cortech Sport tailbag it has a nice large handle on it to take with you. It easily fits my booq laptop case. OGIO makes one as well.

"FastPack is attached or removed in minutes, but never has to be removed from your bike. When not needed, simply zip it up and it becomes a stylish padded seat cover. Features a quality waterproof zipper and weather-resistant heavy-duty canvas and vinyl construction."

I remove it when I don't need it. It has Velcro straps that wrap under the passenger seat. I remove the passenger seat and replace it with a seat cowl.

How does that work in a downpour? Do you trust your laptop without a raincover?
