    Hey guys,

    struggling to make a decision on my touring luggage for NC500 and possible future longer touring.

    I'm needing to pack: wine, tent, sleeping bag, clothes, all the usual stuff.
    The more streamlined and less annoying the better, I hate having stuff flopping about.

    So far my favourites are:
    https://www.sw-motech-shop.co.uk/speedpack-tail-bag-75-90-l-ballistic-nylon-blackgrey-
    https://www.motohaus.com/50-65-l-ballistic-nylon-blackgrey-racepack-tailbag.html
    Ventura 51l thingie

    This but I don't think it would fit tent/sleeping bag etc.

    Kriega seems to be popular but a lot of fuckery to get everything fitted and mounted and a bit expensive for what is essentially a nicer looking drybag?


    Opinions and experiences! Thanks!

    I was touring the west coast of Scotland last week, I used a hepco and Becker sport rack with kriega luggage, had the us30 with a 3 man tent self inflating mat sleeping bag and blow up pillow on it, a us20 sat on top with all my clothes for a week in, didn't even know it was there while riding

    For fit and forget you can't beat ventura. There is no way that it is going to move once fitted . It is removable in seconds plus it does not make the bike any wider .
    i always use a waterproof bag inside any luggage just to guarantee nothing getting wet.
    I have never used it with a tent though.

    Ventura bag for your luggage, then use the rack to bungee the tent and sleeping bag, etc. Secure and keeps things simple. Put the tent and things in a drybag if you need to keep waterproof.
