Does it have a helmet lock? How much storage under the seat and is it under the passenger seat or riders seat? As long as I can fit my wallet, glasses and phone I'll be happy.
The cbr250 has plenty of room for a tail bag. The luggage is much safer, if you carry any hard items like little tools, or a can of soda. I order some saddle bags and a tank bag to go with my fastrax tail bag.Well, according to me, when you are fully geared up, a simple change like a backpack can cause a strain on your shoulder muscles. I have this riding jacket and on top of that if there is a backpack, it will increase your sprain in shoulder possibility. Even if it weighs nothing(impossible by laws of physics), it will create a strain when you ride for more than 3-4 hours. Try it out.
About tank bags, one must be careful that the magnet of the tank bag does not scratch the tank paint. We use scotch tape below the magnetic holds of tankbag to prevent this from happening.
When I got mine, I put my sunglasses, wallet, and phone in the storage compartment under the passenger's seat, along with the toolkit and documents that were already in there. There was no room for anything else, but it fit just fine.Does it have a helmet lock? How much storage under the seat and is it under the passenger seat or riders seat?

I'm going to try the Dowco fastrax tank bag too. I like the locking zippers and rain fly. I have no idea if it will work, I'm a little nervous. But I like the tail bag so much, it will almost always carry all my shopping. I thought if I could keep my gloves and such in the tank bag, then the tail bag would be ready for store runs.qlred, that tailbag is a perfect fit. With some saddlebags and a tank bag you will be ready to hit the open road! Which tank bag did you order? A little tricky to find the right tank bag fit for this bike.........
Yes, but they were returned and sent out again to me so the set was short a few of the straps, I'm seeing if they can replace the missing parts.qlred, so you have the fastrax saddlebags also? If so, are you happy with the way they mate up with the cbr? Can you upload a photo? Thanks
