Cortech Tribag Tail Bag
The too-trendy underseat exhausts found on many modern sportbikes look trick, but with hot, high-mounted muffler cans ready to melt soft saddlebags, it's hard to carry gear for anything more than a short trip. Our search for suitable luggage led us to the Cortech TriBag Tail Bag, which provided a solid and secure cargo solution for a recent four-day sport-tour. Featuring a spacious, 30-liter capacity divided into a top-loading main compartment and four exterior pockets, the TriBag secures with four built-in hooked bungee cords that hide away when not in use. The cords easily cleared the hot underseat mufflers on both bikes we rode that weekend ('06 ZX-10R and '06 R1), though you might need to be clever with your rear anchor points if you've deleted the factory rear fender and/or license-plate bracket.
