    A rear bag with a little more space

    I cant find the thread where a rider was mentioning his wife's issue with packing in the stock bags but I wanted to post a couple of pictures of how we traveled this weekend.
    I found that when I go camping (and ride two up) and try and bring a tent, two sleeping bags, cooking equipment etc. the stock rear box wasn't quite roomy enough.  We usually put clothes in the two side bags.
    So, I have this soft bag that fits securely on the rear and expands nicely.  Plenty of pockets and storage.  (note that this a seat bag but when riding two up it seems to attach very well to the rear rack).
    It weighs quite a bit less than the stock box which of course gets offset by the gear you can put in there.  My passenger seems happy.

    If you cant fit your gear in this thing.....

    It is a Motofizz bag.  It comes in there sizes.  I'll have to check for you if that is the medium or the large.  I know I did not get the small.  I cant find any data about volume in litres but did see that the large bag is 5000 cubic inches if that helps! Medium is 3100.

    It can probably handle a pretty good soaking but it did come with a cover.

    That rear bag is a good size,  I could probably fit my wife in one ....... there's a thought!!   :745:

    Can I ask what is the device fitted to the front mudguard?

    The bag does look good.  Also silver does look the best  :107:

    Some interesting things in the picture. 

    Why wrap the grab handles?
    What do you clip the bag to?
    Like the bead seat (I have one as well).
    What is the seat, coming up the back of the tank? 
    Also the knee grips look good.  I got some supposedly transparent ones but the have discoloured in the sun light and i am thinkng of changing them.  And black look good.
