Arden Kysely
August 10, 2015

Cortech provided the on-bike storage for our long-term Honda CB1100 from its Super 2.0 line of luggage. The 18-liter tank bag with magnetic attachment sits atop the bike’s steel fuel cell, while a 24-liter tail bag rides pillion. Together, they provide enough hauling capacity for grocery stops or day... Read more »

A lot of aftermarket companies make saddlebags and panniers for dual-purpose motorcycles. I’m a proponent of simplicity and softness—simple mounting and soft bags. I needed to give the Kawasaki KLR650 New Edition some luggage capacity for the Lost Coast story on page 36, and DBz Products has what... Read more »

Nelson-Rigg has been making soft touring luggage for more than 30 years, so it pretty much has the art of making tankbags, seatbags, saddlebags, etc., figured out. Including ease of use.

Wunderlich Symmetrical Luggage Kit BMW R 1200 GS Review

Mark Tuttle
July 9, 2013

BMW’s R 1200 GS is almost ideal for extended solo trips. For two-up riding, however, the factory’s expanding Vario luggage option doesn’t quite cut it, particularly if you’re camping.
