Rear bags, luggage rolls and complete sets for your motorcycle
Anyone who ever thinks about going on a tour with his motorcycle will find that a bike does not offer many possibilities to take a lot of luggage. So sooner or later one or the other motorcyclist will ask himself the question, how can I pack everything I need and fix it safely on my bike?
Besides luggage systems like top cases, suitcases or panniers, rear bags - also called soft bags - offer a flexible solution. Motorcycle rear bags offer a good alternative for all those who do not like to carry their luggage on the tank. In addition, the bags offer the possibility to combine them with other luggage systems due to their flexible material. However, it is also important that the luggage is not only stowed safely, but also in such a way that it does not hinder the motorcyclist while riding. This applies to both long and short tours.
Softbags/ rear bags
Motorcycle rear bags are available in many variations. The choice of size and shape is enormous. The division into mostly small compartments provides additional order. Due to their universal fit, the motorcycle bags can be attached to almost any motorcycle model. The biggest advantage is the simple and uncomplicated fastening of the motorcycle panniers, mostly on the passenger seat or the luggage rack. To carry luggage on your motorcycle, you can use a rear bag with a high litre of storage space, which is particularly suitable for longer tours. In addition to rear bags with a large main compartment, there are also some versions with a waterproof inner pocket. This way you can protect your luggage even in bad weather conditions. Alternatively, there are also so-called drybags, which protect your luggage optimally from rain thanks to their waterproof material. Motorcycle luggage rolls are also available as waterproof drybags or in black leather. Many models offer additional lashing straps to combine the bag with other bags as well as a carrying handle or shoulder strap. This allows the bag to be converted into a carry bag or even gives it a backpack function.
The right preparation
When it comes to luggage, it is not only the choice of luggage system that matters, but also the appropriate preparation, for example on longer tours. Taking luggage with you always means taking extra weight with you. Therefore, care should be taken not to exceed the permissible total weight. Especially if a pillion passenger is added. In addition to the weight, care should also be taken to load the bike evenly and symmetrically so that the bike is not heavily loaded on one side. Before starting a longer tour, the tyre pressure should be increased and, if necessary, the suspension components should be adjusted to the additional weight to prevent dangerous riding and cornering behaviour of your bike.
