I used to have plenty of space in the F4i trunk for whatever I needed. The 1000rr is quite different. I'm lucky if I can fit my camera. I was just wondering what you guys thought about the above product. Has anybody actually ever used a tail bag before? I started looking at tail bags because I like to put my stuff away where I dont have to think about it. The only draw back I can see is that I might have to remove it if I have a passenger. I dont even have the passenger pegs put on my bike and very rarely ever carry a passenger so this is not really an issue for me. I just need a bag large enough to carry an extra shield, some water and my camera. I know a bunch of you have the tank bags and I'm also open to getting one of those, I just dont know how much it would get in my way. What are everyones thoughts on the tail bag, and for those of you that have the tank bags, what do you like about it and what are some of the drawbacks?

More info on the tail bags can be found at the vendor website:

Will be trying my rear seat bag out tomorrow on the ride so you can see for yourself how it works. Wouldn't go anywhere without my tank bag as it doesn't get in my way.

It looks like the above tail bag may be a pain in the ass to remove though. I like the ability to just grab a tank bag and take it with you when you get off the bike. I dont know if you can do that with a tail bag. I wouldnt want to have to take all the stuff out of a tail bag and carry it around. It would be much easier to just take the tank bag off and carry it around.

Ok your on the same bike as me... A tank bag will be a pain, you have to have a Strap On.. and yes I'm going to give you hell....... the tank has a plastic cover so a magnetic tank bag wont work, hence the strap on... yea I know you like the idea, but a pain in the ass it will be... in more than one way

A tail bag will work fine, I had to use one on my recent trip....

here is a pic...

Oh yea I do have a magnetic tank bag but I have to use a rope to tie it under the steering dampener to keep it from flying off at say warp 1.4

Since I have a traditional steel tank, my Cargo Endurance Tank Bag serves me well. I can throw a decent amount of stuff in this bag and it doesn't get in the way when riding.

I just did the "hump mod" on my Busa, so I now have even more storage space available.
