    Tailbag Solution

     I found a tailbag that works for me when I don't need the side panniers. It's a Cortech Super 2.0 with shortened straps connected to the pannier mounts.  I ride solo so this is perfect for me. You'd have to be creative to mount this to the rack. Nice quality, secure mounting, and expandable..... :821:

    Hmmm....Perhaps the tailbag solution I've been looking for.  Looks to be about $110 for the bag and mounting hardware plus another $13 for the rain cover accessory.

    When I mount and get of f the bike I usually throw my leg over the back seat,  dodgy back prevents me mounting any other way.  (i can see a lot of inappropriate responses coming my way!!!.  keep it clear guys.   

    Related question,   Does anyone stand on their footpeg to mount / dis mount, while the bike is on the side stand, can the side stand take the weight of the bike and a rider standing on the peg.

    I've been forced to use the footpegs for mounting - dismounting for a number of years now.  Most recent (mounting/dismounting/balancing) issue happened on my Trophy's first road trip several weeks back using the factory tank bag. I'm a bit rotund so that can present special challenges, one I found out was rocking the Trophy off of its center stand with the tank bag installed.  No room to rock forward I had a bit of trouble balancing the bike on one occasion - no such issues with the bag removed. 

    Didn't drop the bike but one observer close by could see I was struggling momentarily and commented.  In the future I will remove the tank bag, fill the bike and reinstall once the process is completed after the bike is back on its side stand.  Don't have this issue with my Sprint and tank bag installed probably because of its smaller dimensions.
