I have a couple of "Stuff Bags" that fit nicely on the Kury luggage rack. I keep my rain gear and my cold weather gear (Widder Electrics) in those bags so they are easy to access.We have both the Pakit-Rak bag and one of those Kury bags on the trunk rack. Between the two, we have everything we need for a nice trip. And I dont worry about overloading the trunk rack; it'll carry a decent load without problem.
That is my Rev Pack Tour Pack on the backseat with my laptop lashed on top of that with a rainproof cover. The green and yellow "Stuff Bags" on the Luggage rack are also from Rev pack, excellent Motorcycle Luggage Company. (Also owners of the "Song Dog Ranch").
This is how I traveled for a little over three weeks from Los Angeles to Nashville/Tail of the Dragon and back home to L.A. I did mail a box of "Dirty Clothes" home before I headed back west, gave me some room for the Jack Daniels "Gift" bottles I picked up in Lynchburg, Tennessee at the distillery! :beer8:
