Tail bag for TV (or other)

Has anyone tried a tail bag on the passenger seat?
I've given up on the idea of a top box and set sights on a soft tail bag that would be smaller and less weight than a top box.
I tour for a month at a time and need the extra space, panniers are not enough. Any thoughts? It sounds petty, most would be happy with just the panniers, but I've had many bikes over the years with top boxes or similar, and it's hard to give up old touring habits.

I use a Nelson Rigg CL-1060-S. It works good for commuting, I can fit my lunch, sweater, gloves and tinted visor in there. It was relatively inexpensive and actually fit on the passenger seat without touching the paint.

HeBGb, I looked at the expandable Nelson Rigg CL-1040-TP which holds 42 litres expanded, looks good online, with good reviews, but may need a base rack fabricated. I'll keep looking at other brands though. Thanks for the heads up.

Mate - the BEST thing you can do is get the Kriga range of talbags.

It fits extremelly easy, removes easily, completely waterproof. cannot rave enough about this

Kriga | Kriga

I have the us-20 and us-10 pack. The one joins on top of the other to give 30 liters of space. I actually just ordered an additional us-10 (to fir two us-10 on the side of the us-20).

I got a Kriega US10 for Christmas from the in-laws (well I bought it myself and gave it to my wife to give to them to give me, oddly they gave my wife the money for it... go figure...)

Have yet to fit it to the bike for real, just offered it up. Looks like it's made to fit on the pillion perch of the TV size-wise. Only issue is it'll make the bike more of a stretch to swing my leg over. I might have to resort to standing on the inner peg rather than the floor when mounting.

I accept that the US10 is pretty small but it offers some useful extra space for day to day stuff like waterproofs, food, bottle of water etc. I do have a Givi ST602 tank-bag (quite small) for phone, tyre repair kit, spare gloves, first aid kit etc. but this isn't quite enough if I don't have the panniers fitted. i,e, day trips or days on tour when we stay at the same location for more than one night, it's nice to ride without panniers. On last summer's tour my mate kindly carried my waterproofs on days like this and he's on a 996!

Kriega is really well made, waterproof and very adaptable. Well worth a look.

I've had Kriega stuff in the past and it's very well made gear with a premium feel.

It's not so easy to get at stuff though (which is why it's totally waterproof), so a conventional tail pack might be better - then again, a small tank bag, as mentioned above, perhaps secured to the fuel filler flap, might be more practical?

The seat bag for a Stradale has also been mentioned as a small but stylish option - see here STRADALE 800 | BAGS | Seat Bag | MV Agusta

I found that wasn't enough. Though maybe I carry around too much crap

There isn't a big range of tank bags around for the TV. Ideally they need the convenience of a good filler cap ring system as you have to remove them to get to the ignition key. That pretty well narrows it down to either SW Motech or Givi.

Hi Guys,
I just want to mention that I've got the Held "Tenda". This is not really a big one, but it will the perfect size for a one day trip!!

It fits perfect to the bike well...

Greetings from Hamburg

Got the Kriega bags they are very good, but access is a pain during a day of riding when you might want to retrive something.

Found the Ogio stealth (or the Dainese D Bag if you want to pay more the the branding!) and it fits very well on the pillion seat. You can get a good 20-23 litres in it, but as Chas implies mounting the bike will become more of a challenge!

So to make access to the kriega easier, as well as remove the need to continually set the straps to different lengths when you add or take stuff out, i got a plastic container that fits precisely into the Kriega. Easy to take container out, open up, get what you want, close, put back. Strap tension also then does not need re-adjustment.

I'll post some photo's when i'm back at home the weekend
