  • Joe Rocket tailbag question

    Anyone know about this bag?
    http://www.newenough.com/joe_rocket_...ge_private.htm

    I am looking for something for small rides and to be able to go to the gym and to work. The most I need it to hold is a pair of tennis shoes, shirt, shorts , and a couple of small things. Think this would work? I'm really looking for a tailbag for this purpose. I don't know if I'd like a tankbag. Reccommend me a good tailbag if you know one. The backpack is getting old.

    Thanks,
    Vince

    My only question is: how well does it stay put??

          I think Nelson/Rigg makes some nice bags. I have a set of black/yellow sport saddle bags that are real nice looking and built good.

              Just purchased the Motorbags one off Ebay. Looks like it should do the trick. I'll see when it gets here.

                I got a tank bag so I wouldnt have to keep carrying a backpack.. but now I use the tank bag and still use the backpack when getting groceries.

                  Yeah , you get used to a certain amount of space and start throwing in more and more stuff you "can't live without" , then you need MORE space for MORE stuff ! I have one saddlebagbag usually FULL (divided between both bags) of stuff I take on every ride just because , whereas before it was just a couple things stuffed in a backpack .

                    Well I got the tailbag today. I really like, BUT, I hate the way it's supposed to mount. I thought it bungeed to the passenger hand rails but it straps that go through the bottom and wrap around the seat with about 3-4 ft extra strap hanging out. And I can't seem to get it tight. I may try some bungees with it, but if I can't get it to secure properly, it's going back. Man I was hoping this would work.
                    Hey md86, how long are the bungees you used with your backpack?

                        Bought some bungees today and they work perfect in securing this bag. Exactly what I was wanting. Looks like I'm keeping it. It's an excellent bag, just the straps they send with it suck.
