I'll admit though, some of the best long trips Ive made included nothing more then myself, a bottle of water and an atm card. Its unlogical not to be prepared, but it feels more like just 'you and the road.'

Couldn't agree more. That's how I looked at it with all the BS/Drama going on, just up and leave with your confidence. Makes you feel like your actually "getting away"

Cortech Sport Touring Tail and & Saddle Bags. Saddle bags are around $130 and tail bag is around $70.


They are SWEET!!

Nelson Rigg has a similar setup for a bit less. I still like my tank bag. Keeps the weight central, and lets me be lazy on the freeway. I do plan to add a set of the saddle bags.

This is along the way to the Hills last Oct. I had no issues with the double decker tank bag running the twisties to and from. Wife and friend chose back packs and were both tired after 6-7 hours on the road at 80+.

I also had the duffle on the back for the wifes, ahem "necessaties".
