 Leather Motorcycle Saddle Bags For SaleDo You Really Need Motorcycle Bags On Your Bike?

The only real time you need bags on your bike is if you are planning a trip. Now some bikers, especially guys on cruisers like to have some storage on their ride no matter what. Look at some of the Harley Baggers which are beautiful cruiser with already pre-installed bags on the bike. It is definitely handy to have some storage space when you are out on the road but it’s only essential when you are looking to go on a road trip. Day trips are no big deal but if you ever feel the need to ride across the country you are going to need some sort of motorcycle luggage that will allow you to pack some essentials for a road trip.

Back Seat Touring BagMotorcycle Luggage for Cruisers:

When it comes to cruisers and storage the most common solution is a nice set of saddlebags or some touring luggage that you can mount to a backrest or a rack. Another option is a back seat bag. So you see there are quite a few options all depending on what makes sense for you. If you do decide to go with a set of saddlebags you can get some nice leather ones that can be easily mounted to the bike permanently. If you decide to go the touring luggage route T-Bags makes lots of nice pieces in a variety of flavors. If old school is more your style take a look at Saddlemen or Ace, Both have a nice selection as well as giving you an old school leather saddlebag that has lots of modern features like plastic liners and such to keep your stuff safe from the elements just in case.

What about Sport Bikes?Touring Tank Bags For Sale

On a sport bike you may not be able to go with saddlebags depending on the configuration of the motorcycle. A sport tourer will often come with a set installed where a true sport bike will not have much storage at all. This is where motorcycle bags in the form of a tank bag or tail bag come in. These easily mount to the tail section of your ride or directly on to the tank. Either one are a great answer to the problem. You will find the tank bag is usually easy to mount to the bike. Generally something like a strap system combined with a magnet are what is used to secure it to the tank. The only draw bag is you have to remove it every time you need to fill up where a tail bag is mounted and can stay there till you get to where you are going.

No matter which option you choose, keep a few things in mind when deciding on what to get. The main one would be how much storage you need. Depending on the answer to that question you are going to likely be tied in to a few options if you need lots of storage.
