Will start riding my Ninja 250 to work starting this spring(2009) ive wanted to get some seat time in before I tried commuting on it this year. But I will need a decent tailbag as I work in Law Enforcement it needs to be able to hold stuff like a Duty Belt, possibly lunch, a jacket and or pullover pants. A tank bag is just too small for that stuff. Im gonna be a fairweather rider so even though its nice being “waterproof” is not that big a deal to me. This will be a Christmas Present idea for my wife so I need to keep it $70 or less..preferably less. Plus it will help me be able to bring stuff home when shopping and also help carry stuff when I go fishing..plan to do a lot of riding this coming year!October 23, 2008 at 11:05 pm #14232
that was my post BTW I thought I was logged in…guess not..also thought about saddle bags instead of a tailbag but just figured I may get more in a tailbag?October 24, 2008 at 3:56 am #14236RobMParticipant
I like the looks of the Cortech sport tail bag. There is a review on this site about it. I got a hands on look at it last weekend at the local Fun Bike Center and it looked big enough to hold a fair amount of stuff, especially with the expansion pockets opened. This is the one I will be getting in the near future for my commute to work (just started last week – third time tomorrow morning) . Oh yeh, it can also be expanded to include optional saddlebags for those longer trips.
Here is a link to it on New Enough…
Here’s some info on the Ninja 250 site on tail bags..October 24, 2008 at 12:41 pm #14238

I commute year-round (CA) and find that a motorcycle backpack is the easiest way to carry stuff around.
You don’t have to mess around when you get on or off the bike and you never have to worry that it’s going to fall off.
