Givi Trekker Cases Motorcycle Luggage Review

Givi-Trekker_2

I’ve been a fan of Givi cases for many years. The first set I used on three bikes—I sold them with the third bike—and the second set is currently on its fourth bike. As much as I like their sturdiness, and the ease with which they can be attached or removed from the bike, I’ve never been completely happy with ...

Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel Bag

In need of a catch-all bag for a ride-and-camp to eastern Oregon last summer, I picked out the Dry Duffel from Wolfman’s Expedition Dry Line collection. I was impressed by the heft of the bag just lifting it out of the box. Turns our that Wolfman doesn’t mess around with flimsy fabrics for these bags – the small Dry Duffel I chose ...

Giant Loop Fandango Tank Bag

In the June issue of Rider, Arden “Knobbie” Kysely gave a rave review to a set of Giant Loop Great Basin Saddlebags. As luck would have it, a set of those saddlebags showed up at our office along with a Giant Loop Fandango Tank Bag.

Aerostich LP Bag

One of the most memorable and hilarious comedy routines was the late George Carlin’s “A Place for My Stuff.” With his signature irreverent style, Carlin probed right to the heart of the American obsession with accumulating stuff, and our ever-growing need for places to put that stuff.

ridetek_lidhauler-bags-attached

Review by Reg Kittrelle [This RideTek LidHauler and LidSak Review was originally published in American Rider magazine] Give me the space to pack it, and I’ll take along enough stuff to shame the quartermaster of a small frigate.

Nelson-Rigg Tank Bag Review

Nelson-Rigg-Tank-bag

Review by Jeff Giese [This Nelson-Rigg Tank Bag Review was originally published in American Rider magazine] The main characteristic that sets the Nelson-Rigg CL-50 Micro Magnetic Tank Bag apart from the crowd is its size. They don’t call it “micro” for nothing. This makes it perfect for the Sportster’s classic peanut tank. In fact it is small enough that it ...
