Motorcycle backpack

Hey guys, what up? it's been a while!
School is about to start up and I need a new backpack for my books. I will also use it to ride, and of course I want style. I have a blue CBR so if it could match that would be awesome. I'm going to have about 5 books and it is going to be hot this summer, so I would like something cool if possible. A helment carrying compartment would be useful too, but I don't want some big ugly hump on my back. So if you guys got any ideas send them out!

-Kevin

icon has a nice tank bag that turn into a back pack and helmet carrier, not cheap around 90 bucks or so, and not so big on space inside

I have this same problem... :/:

I just got a large tank bag and I lock my helmet on my bike at the college. The bag is not cool and it's not fashionable, just functional.
