Whether you’re going on a bike trip or just doing your daily commute, a tough expandable tail bag is a great way to get some additional storage space on your bike. Nelson Rigg has a wide variety of luggage with some new pieces in their line up. Here are a few tail bags I’d like to introduce you to.
Lets start with the basics…all three of these bags are easy to mount to the back of your bike with their self adjusting hooks that attach to the bag while soft ties connect to the bike. They’re all constructed of a heavy duty Tri-Max ballistic nylon and have a material on the bottom to prevent the bag from slipping or marking up your paint or chrome. And for added visibility at night, they all have reflective piping to keep you safe. The Nelson Rigg CL-1060 Sport Seat Tail Bag is the smallest of the three, measuring 12.5″ long by 10.5″ wide by 4″ tall and expanding 3″ in height to accommodate more motorcycle gear if needed. This bag also has a mesh pocket and organizer section on the inside of the lid to keep your stuff in it’s proper place.
Now if you need a little more room you should try the Nelson Rigg CL-1070 Touring Tail Bag. It is 10.5″ long by 9.5″ wide by 10″ tall, expanding to 14″ tall, holding 22.89 liters total, which gives you enough space to fit a full face helmet inside. There are also large side pickets to stash extra stuff and it comes with an adjustable shoulder strap so you can carry it around when you get to your destination.
But if you are going on a trip and need more space than either of those motorcycle tail bags can give you, you’re going to need to go with the Nelson Rigg CL-1040 Jumbo Tail Bag. Before you even expand it, this tail bag holds more than either of the other bags, so when you do zip open the expandable area and add those extra 3″ of space you can store up to 38.78 liters of riding gear. Plus it has all the great features that the smaller bags do and comes with a bonus side charging port for cable access.
So if traveling on your bike is on your list of things to do soon or you are lucky enough to get to commute daily on your motorcycle, be prepared with one of these awesome expandable tail bags.
