Marsee Seat bag

Does anyone have any knowledge of how the "Rocket Pocket" seatbag works on a KS? This bag uses a mounting base that attaches via straps that go under and around the seat.

Bernie, not sure how that one works, and if you haven't bought it allready, look into Chicane products. I've got a seatbag that fits perfectly on and with the lines of the bike, big enough to stuff a rainsuit and other assorted goodies there. Just run your straps underneath the seat to attach.

Don't know nothing bout Marsee...

But,

I have the Corbin tailbag, and with it's bungee cords, it is very easy on and off attached to the stock grab rails and the underseat, nylon luggage "loops" that are retractable.

I used it on a 4k trip across the Western U.S. at speeds up to 130mph and it worked like a charm. I even bungee netted a large duffle to the top of it and it stayed in place. I am very happy with it..

Keep a high visual horizon,
Bob

Sorry I have no experience of that product, but use the Oxford Products Tail Pack. Expandable and between it and my BMW Tankbag I carried all my kit for two weeks around the Apls.


Velcro strap under the seat then bungee cords onto the bike.

According to my friends who were riding with me, the bag never moved at all, whether we were "motoring" or banked right over on the alpine hairpins. Absolutely no adverse effect on the bike. However I was mainly cruising and enjoying the scenery... only one or two periods of 130 mph on the German autobahns.

Hope this helps.

Jimmy, Great design, shape, on the Chicane bag, but is it water proof? I don't see a rain cover on their website.

Jimmy, is the one you have the Summit Tail Bag? It looks very nice if so, and ought to go well with grey.

chicane bag

Gentlemen, that indeed is the Chicane bag I've installed. It SHOULDN'T be waterproof, but I've had it in some pretty hard rains and I supposse because of where it sits the contents have stayed dry. I know the fabrics' good for that but I expected the zippers to leak and they have not. BTW, I kissed a buck sixty last week and the bag stayed on, no prob. The damn county sticker/decal thing blew 95% off but the bag was cool!

Got one on order now; looks like just the ticket for commuting if I don't want to mount the bags. Thanks for the idea.

I use the Rocket Pocket with 4 straps on my KS. Works very well for my day trip needs, cell, gun, map, water, sunscreen, etc. etc. It's expandable for larger cargo. I also use the Larger Tear Drop model with 4 staps for overnight. Both are excellent quality bags. Used both on my previous KRS.

Thanks for the info. I like the idea of the straps going under the seatpan. Looks like a purchase for me.
