    I have a very nice big black one in the garage that you can have for ?15 including post. I think it's a Givi but it is raining far too much to go out and look at the moment. From memory it has a rain cover but I need to check on that.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    If it will fit on the bike without a rack I would be interested.

    Many thanks

    Yup, bungee points on the bag. I probably have some bungees that I will happily pass on. Ii used to put some of that rubber matting stuff under the bag to protect the paint but it was probably overkill.

    If you are interested pm me your address, you can pay me when you are happy with it. If not just send it back.

    One day I will finally get rid of all the bike related stuff I accumulated over the years8rfl@

    Don't know why, I just never felt comfortable with tail bags. I found a tank bag and a average rucksack meaning both were lightly loaded, worked best for me when away for a few days.

    Personal choice, but in the interests of safety, I would prefer not to have anything strapped to my back. :dunno:b

    I too liked using a tank bag, mine stayed on the bike permanently.

    Never keen on rucksacks, give you a sweaty back:eek:

    I have never carried a rucksack due to a knackered shoulder & found tail packs to be too fussy in use & never seemed that secure without loads of extra bungee's

    Stuff I may need quick acecss to goes in a cheap aldi magnetic tank bag that has been brilliant for years, everything else goes in either a dry sack well bungeed on or in the oxford throwovers
