Alright boys and girls, I'm looking to expand my touring luggage capacity without dropping a weeks pay or more on Givi E36 hard cases. I already have a 46L top case and 21L side cases from Givi on a Wingrack but this barely give me enough room for bike essentials and a day or two of clothes(remember - I'm a big guy..think XXL everything). SO this leaves me looking at a tail pack for clothing and whatever and a tank bag for everyday accessories and navigation. Tank bags: I'm pretty set on either the Cortech Super 18L(maaaybe 14L) or the Nelson Rigg CL-350(17.21L expandable to 27.04L) Large magnetic tank bags. I like the large size because of the options and from most reviews, no one has had a problem with seeing the gauges or turning from lock to lock with these bags. I'm not too concerned with being able to see the gauges(I'm 6'4"), but lock to lock is mucho safety concern. Cortech Super 18L Magnetic Tank Bag $108 Looks good, waterproof gate for hydration. Does anyone know what the warranty period is on the Cortech Super 18L? Nelson Rigg CL-350 (17L-27L)Large Magnetic Tank Bag $92 Like the fact that it can expand quite a bit for those unexpected needs...hell, the fact that it can barely fit a full face helmet is pretty impressive to me. Lacks the waterproof gate for hydration hose... but lifetime warranty. Any experience/comments with these bags would be greatly appreciated. Comments on VERY similar bags would be helpful as well. TAIL BAGS: I've thought about just using a regular old duffel bag for this...but then I need to find a suitable rain cover. A dry sac would work...but then that kind of takes away some of the D-ring mounting loops I have on a current duffel...and those D-rings are cheap plastic at that...so on to bike specific models. Oh, and I'm not too concerned with the size of the bags (56 chest here, so it's already like driving down the road holding up a 4x8 sheet of plywood) but aerodynamics and good looks are always beneficial in one way or another. Once again I'm looking into the Nelson Rigg brand with the CL-800 Tote Tail Bag and Nelson Rigg GWS-500 Rear Seat Pack. Also interested in the Road Gear Hi-Adventure Xtreme Packer and Euro-Sport Jumbo Hauler. I'm planning on using the tail pack in conjunction with my current luggage setup so mounting points shouldn't be a problem. I am curious about the Hi-Adventure Extreme Packer and how far the side bags hang down seeing as how I already have side cases(would it lift up the center or would the bag just conform to the given shape?). 37L (Nelson Rigg CL-800 Tote Tail Bag $105 ...capacity possibly the main compartment only?.... I like this one...my only concern is CAPACITY on this one... anyone have this one and can confirm the capacity? Is the stated amount the entire bag or just the main compartment, not including the expandable side pouches? Looks like it'd fit good over the hard cases even with the side pouches expanded...almost a perfect fit eh? 58 L Nelson Rigg GWS-500 Rear Seat Pack $155 Not so sure about this one...not very aesthetically pleasing, but hey, I'm a function over form guy anyway. Not like the college girls flail themselves at my bike with the grandpa bags attached anways:wink:...well sometimes they don't 107L Road Gear Hi-Adventure Xtreme Packer $250 I'm pretty sure this one is out of the question...unless I ditch my E21's because the sides hang way too far down. The E21's are at or just above seat height. Still something to consider though...give up 42L of small storage and gain 8-18L of duffel storage...food for thought... 50L Road Gear Euro-Sport Jumbo Hauler $116 Seems to be a pretty reasonable option. Color looks great...not excited about the "pleated" sides look nor having to PURCHASE a RAIN COVER SEPARATELY($16 only...but still...it's the principal lol). So that is it. Anyone have experience with these PARTICULAR products? I know they're all great brands from what I've read/researched, but curious as to the little quirks/annoyances that come around after miles of use. Of course suggestions for similary sized and functioning products is always appreciated as I have no idea of every single brand out there. I do know that the Ventura products won't work for my application (sorry MelloDude, I know you love them). EDIT: OOPS almost forgot...Here's what I'm starting with so you have an idea of space available/mounting.
