Tank bags are a must for many riders, and Nelson Rigg’s Journey Highway Cruiser Magnetic Tank Bag (NR-150 pictured) is worth a look. This tank bag features a tapered fit for most cruiser tanks, realistic leather-like panels, reverse coil zippers to help keep out dust and dirt and lockable hi-density rubber zipper pulls that operate easily with gloves.
Other features include reflective piping, a lined interior, integrated rain cover packed in a storage pouch, a wedge expandable section when more room is needed and a clear touch-screen-device friendly top pocket for paper maps, a GPS or a smart phone. You get all that plus a lifetime warranty.
The tank bag’s dimensions are 10 inches long by 8 inches wide by 4 inches high, 6 inches when expanded. It holds 5 liters, 7 liters when expanded. Price: $81.95.
Need a little more carrying capacity? A lot more? Then take a look at the Rigg Gear Sierra Dry Saddlebags (SE-3050-BLK for black and SE-3050-YEL for yellow).
The saddlebags are made from 100 percent waterproof and durable 24 ounce tarpaulin PVC that cleans easily. The bags have heat-wielded seams and include two lightweight saddlebag liners to easily remove and pack contents. Removable stiffeners allow the saddlebags to hold their shape when empty while firm internal back plates help support the bags.
Replaceable pads help protect the saddlebags from rubbing on your motorcycle rack. Compression straps can also be used to mount optional Nelson Rigg dry roll bags.
All saddlebag mounting hardware is aircraft grade aluminum, which the company points out means no breakable plastic buckles. Each saddlebag mounts using four quick-release cam buckles and double pull straps.
Each bag measures 15 inches in length by 8 inches wide by 14 inches high. Each bag holds 27.53 liters. Price: $209.95.
