Tail Bag or Tank Bag Recommendation for Trophy
« on: November 22, 2013, 06:10:09 PM »
I have a Trophy SE, with panniers and top box.  The luggage is a great setup for long trips (and my wife likes it when she is on the back), but I do a fair amount of commuting to work on the bike, and a fair amount of solo local riding where I would like to get as much weight off the bike as possible.  I am contemplating buying a tail bag for the few essentials I need (sun glasses, GPS, registration papers, maybe a water bottle), and then taking the panniers and top case off.  Has anybody done this?  Any suggestions on a tail bag that will mount easily to the base plate of the top box?

I see that Triumph makes a tank bag as well.  This may work for my needs, and it would be nice for long trips as well.  I have concerns that the tank bag will be in the way for the more spirited local riding.  Anybody have any experience with this?

Thanks!

The Triumph tank bag is great..

Perfectly compliments the bike. An odd shape to allow full steering lock but quite capacious and does not interfere with the view of the clocks and info panel..

Only criticism I have is that it is not fully waterproof, although they do provide a cover..

There is a much longer thread already where people are comparing the merits of the Triumph bag to other options.

I have the tank bag and could not be happier. Im short so of course it is in thw way of the bottom of the middle display but as far as handling etc with the bag in place it is desogned foe thw bike and you have full movement from lock to lock on the bike.  Hope this helps.
It may not be legal but I have a Dr's note!
