The wife and I are planning a weekend trip, she has her own ride and I have a 900 LT. I’m thinking about getting some luggage that will fit over the sissy bar, any thoughts or recommendations?

Thanks!

My wife went to an outlet mall and bought two "T" bag knockoffs for $20 bucks each and we use them a lot... sorry I dont know the maker but, they are also sold on Ebay.... but, something like that is excellent for a 2-3 day adventure, they just setdown on the sissy bar and hook under the seat

I can't say enough good things about my T-Bags Tahoe. They guarantee their bags as long was you own it. If you call them with questions or recommendations on their bags my experience was that they are just great folks to do business with. I had BTK order mine and got the forum discount.

Thanks guys. You don't need a luggage rack with the Tour Master do you?
No. Mine fits securely to the sissy bar. I can mount it so it sits on the rear seat or mount it so it over hangs the fender. It fits pretty tight over the rear pad to begin with, but it also has straps to help secure it. Mine went about 1500 miles in 4 days and did well. No problems or complaints what so ever. It even came with a rain cover... that I had to use.

I have a soft leather sissy T-bar bag I bought from Jafrum through e-Bay three years ago. It consists of a large, expandable, rectangular bag with side pockets; a smaller roll bag which clips to the top; and a rain cover. I can't recall what I paid, but Jafrum is currently listing what appears the same bag on eBay for less than $40 Buy it Now.

I've run through several long, hard rains without putting the cover on and haven't had anything inside get wet yet.

I ride solo on the trips and attach the bag so it rests on the passenger seat. In that position, the bag is more toward the bike's center of gravity and provides a nice back rest.

I've been very satisfied with the bag I have.

The attachments are of the two bags on my VN800. Photos I have of my current 900 don't show the bag as well.

I've got this badboy made by Nelson Rigg. It is great & easily hauls a weeks worth of gear. I had a cheaper leather bag but it would shift all around depending on how it was packed & was a PITA. This thing is solid, holds it's shape & stays put! Makes a great backrest too! Well worth every penny! I love it! :biggrin: 8)

The biggest thing to consider.... make sure whatever you buy is waterproof.
