I've been using this guy for a few months now and I've got no serious complaints. It's dirt cheap, reasonably durable (so far), virtually weightless, and it folds up and stows away nicely under the passenger seat while taking up minimal space.

Here's a picture for scale.

Backpack!

To me guys, a good backpack is a no brainer. I wore one on my Sportster, and also on the CBR. No offense to any who use them, but by and large, these big ole tailbags, boxes, and such, just look butt ugly on a Sportbike. My opinion, anyway. I mean, its a Sportbike. Geez, If you wanted a bagger, by all means, they've got them, in most every brand. I bought a Sportbike, and by no means am I trying to turn it into a bagger. My backpack carries everything I need, annd ususlly has plenty of room left. In addition to lunch and snacks, I often have spare clothes, rainsuit, Laptop, and other odds and ends. I see a lot of guys have the big huge boxes on the back of the bike, but man to me, they look some kinda goofy on a Sportbike, no offense.

To you, it's a sportsbike. To me, it's a commuter.

I have a tankbag I use for longer trips. If I'm just going to work I wear a backpack. I use one of my ski packs that has nice shoulder straps and a sternum strap. My laptop and whatnot doesn't fit so well in a tankbag. Eventually I'll get a tailbag and some saddlebags for extended trips. Like I said, on a day to day basis (85% of the time) I just use a backpack... and I'm not afraid to toss some glass/pyrex tupperware in there either

works great with a wallet and phone with it all the way zipped down.could probably put alittle more in it without having to have
unzipped at all.most of the time i use a light back pack that
folds up small enough to keep under the seat with some bungy cords.
and a (metal)double gang box cover,incase i have to put the stand on soft ground.

so i have the givi rack which i use daily to carry my bag/store my lid, but i just got given a tank bag and its truly quality bit of kit. i think it is a much better way to go than a tail bag as can be rested on for long trips. obviously filling up tank is an issue compared to tail bag

edit:
tank bags have hidden straps so can be carried with you

LOVE my OEM Honda tailpack on my CBR125R. Same kit for the CBR250R, the bag is from Europe actually for the CBR600F...

My. Thoughts. Exactly.

My lady and I both hate farkles. She's a snob like that about scooters... and I quote "top-cases make me want to barf".

C'mon, sko sko sko!
