I just want to bring my lunch to work!

i've started commuting on the 250R, what are some suggestions for the smallest, sleekest tail bag available for our bikes? just need to be able to put a sandwich and maybe a baseball cap in the tail bag to take lunch to work.

thoughts?

The Cortech tank and tail bags are pretty nice quality and sleek. Have you checked those out?

Kriega US10 (US means universal system).

US-10 DryBag - Kriega

The best thing about these bags is that you can fit them on the tank or on one of their rucksacks.

They fit nicely onto the pillion seat.
Not cheap but they are very well made and have a 10 year guarantee.

How 'bout a backpack?

I had the same issue and ended up with this basic JanSport backpack. I soon discovered it made a very convenient hands-free way to carry my riding supplies too. It's now my designated "bike bag" that I grab every time I go out riding anywhere. It's also super convenient when you want to pick up a thing or two from the store on the way home.


C'mon, sko sko sko!

You could look into "Fastpac". straps to your rear set, collapses so that it looks nearly sleek with the original seat, and expands so that you can carry/store things in it. I recommend it. I haz one too.

What kind of sandwich are we talking about here?

Also, what about the possibility that you may want some extra room for chips and perhaps a cookie or two. Some kind of fresh fruit would be a good choice too.



Seriously though, this is what I'm using:

Here's a useful thread that has a lot of good information on this particular tail bag: https://www.cbr250.net/forum/cbr250-p...-tail-bag.html

I place my lunches in a glass tupperware that use tight lids to make sure nothing spills out, since I do end up putting everything in a backpack. I've even brought soups and stews in this fashion, with little-to-no spilling trouble; if having them on their side seems to be your concern. Just place the tupperware in a ziplock or plastic bag for added measure!

You can't put your sandwich under your rear seat? You plan on getting fat?

Haha, plastic works too. Just my preference since glass doesn't stain and is easier to clean.
