Bobber luggage

Hi....I’m new to the forum, I bought my Bobber Black in September last year and have been getting some mods done over the winter, hopefully I’ve not gone too over the top? My question is about luggage, crazy or not I’m off to Spain in 4 weeks and will cover 1000 miles in 7 days! I don’t particularly like the Triumph bags and I can’t have anything behind the seat (you may be able to see that I’ve got quite a trick little brake light where the Triumph badge was in the seat!).....anyone any ideas?

Welcome -

Are you married? your wife could take the car with the luggage.

Welcome @Bobmark

Sounds like you need a lot of storage, or you'll have to travel rreeeeaaalllll light?

I'm going to opt for these saddlebags, but not sure they're big enough for what you want, though:

I had thought about this idea. I hate spoiling the contour of the Bobber even for a trip. A trailer could solve the problem.

Luggage?

A chase car?

A trailer?

Lord above, the man is looking to average 143 miles a day. That's three hours if you take a long lunch in the middle.

Throw a couple changes of clothes in a backpack and ride.

A 'couple' of changes of clothes, gosh your extravagant ..

By the time I've got my riding clothes sorted and some waterproofs I just live in what I'm wearing.. Although you may want to pack a bottle of deodorant...

Cheerio,

Roy
