Lets see your Tank/Tail bag pic thread

Recommended Posts

If you have a tank bag, or even a rear aftermarket bag on your DRZ, post up some pics, will be nice to see what people use for storage.

PO kept the bag, but it was a telescoping nylon jobber. This was fully collapsed, it got tall enough for a paper grocery bag to stand up inside he said.

The rack stayed, which looks like a factory Suzuki part, so I'll be fashioning some sort of tail and/or side bags. Its only been a couple days, and already the backpack feels constricting.

I run a Moose tail bag. Plenty of room for my phone, wallet, a can of Plexus, clean rags, bag of jerky and a couple of vitamin waters.

I have to use a hard case to keep the crackheads out. It's a Moose Racing small on a Moose Racing explorer rack.

I run a modified fanny pack as a tank bag and a Nelson Riggs tank bag as a tail bag... I ran a Wolfman tail bag but it worn out from the sun after and a few years of daily use. The Nelson Riggs bag is slightly shorter but expands to be taller than the Wolfman bag. I commute daily on this and the tail bag holds my rain gear, a can of fix-a flat, spare gloves and a lot more.

It's about time to make another tank bag, the sun kills these things in a year or 2. They are pretty low dollar eBay items. Holds my wallet, sun glasses, registration and my garage door opener, but I just finished my "Ron" mod garage door opener that is wired into the dash with a push button... much better that pushing on the bag until I hit the opener button.

The tail bag is mounted on my simple rack made from a nylon cutting board... It has worked just fine for the past 5 years.

The tool tube allows me to keep tools with me even if I take the tail bag off.

That tank bag is VERY cool Craig.....can you carry a camera in it, like a small Lumix or similar?

The one I used is probably too small, there are some slightly larger bags that would probably work fine for a small camera.

Nice set up Rad. I have used cutting boards for a variety of things, well done on the rear rack 👍

I have a fuel can that fits nicely inside my tool tube... I'm not sure if the cans are all the same size, but I have used mine inside there on occasion.

I have the tank mounted saddle bags from ProCycle. They have great zippers and a place on the side for a water bottle. I also use a Chase/Harper barrel bag for my keys, wallet, phone, etc. I like this set up because it's light and very accessible.
