Tail bag options behind driver for K1300S

Hi all, did a quick search, and nothing really good came up.

I'm curious what some of you might suggest for something small if you're travelling for a day ride without a passenger, to put it on the pass. seat behind the driver?

I'm thinking of either T Bags tank and tail (being discontinued): http://www.tbags.com/tank-n-tail-bag.html

Or maybe the Nelson Riggs CL-1060 Sport Tail/Seat Bag: https://www.nelsonrigg.com/store/product.aspx?pid=1673

I really like the products I've purchased from Touratech. Made in Germany, this stuff is expensive but worth every penny.

I scored the nearly $600 Universal Tail Bag for my K1600GT and it's the real deal. Of course it sounds as if you don't need that much of a bag. Some of their other offerings just may do the trick.

Thanks I hadn't heard of that brand. I am thinking of something more sleek so I can leave it on the bike for riding around town. I just remembered also about the Wunderlich brand

Agree with you about sleek and low profile. It's why I plopped down the $582 (or whatever) for the Touratech Universal Tail Bag System. Am about to leave for a week long ride and I'm just taking the center bag. Not the two ancillary cases that zip to the main bag. I much prefer this tail bag system over the Lazy-Boy recliner look of a top case.

Yes, Wunderlich is good too. Forgot about them. More quality German made stuff albeit $$$.

Good luck on the purchase Lotus.

I've gone ahead and ordered the Nelson Riggs CL-1060 Sport Tail/Seat Bag, as it's a good price, and size. Hope it's nice when it shows up. Reviews seemed pretty good on it.

That's really nice and proportionate with the cases.

What's your tank bag? :-)
