I hate backpacks in the heat... I use a large tank bag daily. I have soft side bags and working on hardbags... make the bike carry the weight, not your body....

I believe there is a luggage rack for a grom that makes it so you can use a number of tail bags or just a spider web netting and a backpack.

I don't see how anyone can ride with a backpack in this heat. You lose all the ventilation with one.
So, I just (about a hour ago) ordered that a cortech dryver tail bag as I just need one big enough to hold a camera and a bottle of water for my day trips... and water is optional. Didn't even think tail bags for sport bikes were a thing until you mentioned the one here.

I can ride with a backpack, but it's usually a camera bag... although it is better without it.

I'd rock the turtle shell any day! I doubt id even have anything in it... my keys debit card and ID fit just fine in my pockets lol

I got tired of the backpack too and got the Kriega US-30 for the tail. It's so much better riding not having to worry about stuff shifting on your back mid corner or holding the weight up on longer rides/commutes. Kriega stuff in general is well made and worth the price tag from my experience.

Nice, I'm interested to see how you like it. I really like the Cortech bags I have but like you sometimes I don't carry much. I don't think my camera would fit though.

Well, I just need to fit a Nikon D7000 with a Tokina 11-16 2.8 attached... or 24-120 F4 N. If it can't do that I plan on sending it back and picking up the Saddlemen T14 or T16.

The sling backpacks are a must when zipping around town. Mines a send for short trips.

You're going to need that 9.0 stabilizer strap or itll be all over the place... Chrome bags come with those...looks like they sort of copied them materials wise.

Chrome has some awesome camera bags. My mom uses it.
