What kind of luggage options are everybody using on their F4? I like the Manta Tank bag by Joe Rocket, but wondering if there is anything else available that may be less bulky. I just want something that is slick looking, at the same time can carry light amount of luggage such as sunglasses, phone, clear extra face shield, etc.

Any help will be appreciated.

I thought Ventura made a kit for the F4, but appears they don't.
Make one for the Brutale though.



I have used their stuff on bikes for around 10 years and will continue to (where available). They are the most common luggage used in Australia.

Man, that looks so gay!!! Why don't you just wear a back pack or bungy a bag on the rear pillion seat

I don't think the words luggage and F4 go together. :cross: I take my rear wheel nut socket, my wallet, my digital camera and my mobile phone when I go out on my bike. The socket and camera fit under the seat and the phone and wallet are in my pockets. That's it. If you want luggage, buy a boxer twin and a set of Krausers IMHO. :)

I use a fanny pack, to keep the center of gravity low. Also back packs are known to make you tumble over more in a get off like a gyroscopic force... :later:

That's what I do also(waist pack) if I don't have a lot of stuff to carry, but if I had to carry more things, it would be either a tank bag or back pack with my R6, with my Senna I can't imagine putting a tank bag on it though.

... with your Senna, you should put the tank bag on the R6 and have some one escort you around on it ;) ....actually, with your Senna you should have a half a dozen biker escorts.... all dressed in black!!! :drummer: :king:

Thanks heaps for the info on the Ventura luggage. I already have the bag and I have been hoping for a long time that they would make a rack for the F4. I just rang my bike shop and ordered one.

I respect and understand your need for a rack and bag, but that picture is just :shocker: :shocker: :shocker: to see.

Some of us only have 1 bike for all of our riding. I regularly do 3 to 5 day rides, commute every day, do track days, single day blasts and everything in between.

Believe me when I say that this new rack is the best thing ever. It's as ugly as a hatful of arseholes, but I would rather have that than a heavy and dangerous backpack anyday, and to know that you can carry everything you need for a long, multi-day, ride. Most importantly, having used one on my Fireblade all the time, it does not affect the handling at all, so that you can have a fun time in the twisties and move around the bike as you normally would without being encumbered.

Practicality is sometimes more important than aesthetics.

For long distance touring that makes sense. I thought it was just for a short trip or day pack.

I take your point mate. I fall into the category of only having one bike to ride too. :bawling: I still think for a multi day ride you can get away with a credit card and a tooth brush, but it would be a sad world if we were all the same. Enjoy your F4. :)

I use a bagster tank bra and bag on my F4. i use my bike for commuting/errands/all kinds of stuff. It's nice to have a place to put things. When I dont want the bag, take it off. The tank bra comes off in about 5 minutes. Google Bagster or Baglux. I picked up mine through MCC. They even had the right shade of silver.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHH an F4 with luggage?!?!?! :green: :bawling: :eek:

Never, never get to Italy with that thing on the back of the most beautiful motorbike in the World! It's blasphemous! :mad:

Long trips/supersport = backpack
nothing more.

The Bagster stuff works really well on the F4, a range of bags - different styles, colours and functions. Probably the best solution for the F4 looks wise and aerodynamics. Suggest going for a smaller bag that expands to a larger size that way it works well for long and short journeys. Also easy to remove the bag and carry it around.

MVF4SR, Let us know your thoughts on the rack and bag, how does it feel while cornering? how easy is it to remove the rack frame?
