American Leg End Rider

I have been looking for a leg bag to compensate for the lack of storage on Bonnie. I looked at American Leg End bag and now receive countless offers of 10%, 20% 30% and if I close the page again 40%

The bag looks good especially with discount but then in the UK we have to pay import duty. Only a small percentage but then a charge of 13 quid to collect the duty!

I nearly pressed the button but decided to look around doing an image search. Guess what.

...and then

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Military-Mo...NC7ETQYTJBTRJD

even cheaper.

The zips seem to be a problem according to feedback so maybe this one

Condor Drop Leg Dump Pouch Black | Magazine Pouches | Military 1st

Even space for a few magazines

I like the last link best. Wouldn't a bag like this catch a lot of the wind though and feel like it was pulling on your leg?

Depends what you want to carry.
I use a Kriega sling (small) messenger bag when traveling with an iPad, etc or a Wunderlich leg bag for smaller items.

https://www.wunderlich.de/shop/de/be...880-000-1.html

Admittedly, the wunderlich is pretty ugly!
From the links you attached , I prefer the last one. Though as mentioned, drag might be an issue at higher speeds.

I think that for aesthetics, a true messenger style shoulder bag suits the “look” of the Bobber the most.
(Something like this perhaps: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01...R5L&ref=plSrch)

PFEN do you mean you have bought a bag or sent the wife crazy Perhaps both

As eisen has said already about messenger bags suiting the bobber the best here are the bags I bought at the end of last year because of my bobber bit pricy but had to have them

Traveling bag -bag belt 1 / Belt bag military mode - Vert / green

And

Traveling bag -Bag-shoulder handles card holder /Handle briefbag - vert/green
