Cortech Luggage - $250

I have the monster setup of Cortech stuff:

1. The Tri-Bag combo with magnetic mount - You get one fatty tankbag and a slightly smaller unit which can be zipped together and slept upon during long slabs. Unzipped from the mag pad, the big bag can be quickly McGyvered onto the Nine as a stand alone tailbag, while the smaller bag can be zipped to the mag mount for shorter trips. Both have map pockets and internal organizers. The big bag has hidden backpack straps. I believe you can purchase a strap mount pad to retrofit either one.


2. The Tri-Bag Tail is the large round bag that can be used alone as a tailbag, a completely seperate duffel bag or clipped up with the saddlebags for the Long Way Down type trips when your wide is so pissed at you you know better than to come home early. I've used this on 3-5 day runs.


3. The Tri-Bag Saddlebags - These aren't the "sports" models and work better on a sport touring / dual sport bike than on something with skinny tail, but they do set up nicely on the Nine. Passes over the pillion seat and clips to the tailbag. Works best together with passenger pegs or other hardmount points to get it all strapped down.


I swear if you outfitted every one of these you could easily get lost for a month. I carried less personal gear on my Abrams. Current retail is $417, but you'll look like a big 'ol noob rolling new kit with sales tags on it.

Apologies! Screwed up the links, but you'll snoop that out.

I just picked up the Tri-Bag Tank bag setup today. So far so good. I do wish the rear magnets were positioned just a bit (2 inches) closer to the bag so they would make 100 % contact with tank. Oh well, we shall see if the hold on or get blown off in the 100 mile per hour test.
