Hey I’m starting to prepare for a short road trip to South Dakota from Minnesota with one of my girlfriends! Does anyone have any photos of how big of a bag that one of the Hepco & Becker luggage racks can hold? Also any links and photos of other recommendations for bags or racks are much appreciated! I feel like hauling a backpack on my back for the trip wouldn’t be very comfortable! I also found a La Rosa brand saddle bag with a small fuel bottle on the internet but is only about 12” long so it’s not a very big bag.. would maybe be good for tools and emergency items.

I tried looking through all of the discussions but it was hard to piece all of it together so I’m sorry if this has all been discussed! None of my friends have bobbers and know nobody else with one except you guys!

Thanks so much,
Cheryl ?

Ps if any of you have recommendations for rain gear as well?? Brands you all like and where to buy?

Hi,

There are a few different options available to you. However the H&C luggage rack as seen in pic 2. Doesn’t hold a lot at all. But it can be modified/extended to hold a lot... as seen in pic 3.

For me the best bet for up to 1 week away is the Kriega 30 litre US dry bag and the rear fender rack... as seen in pic 1.

Best of luck and I hope you have a memorable trip!

For rain gear, I like anything with gore-tex. Totally waterproof and breathes as well. Tends to be at a he top of the food chain price-wise but, if affordable, they’re worth it. Pretty sure many of the top brands, Rev-it, Klim, Alpinstars, Dianese, etc. have versions or comparable. I prefer separate jacket and overpants. Very lightweight, roll or fold-up easy to minimize space and fast on/off if you need them. Most of my gear comes from Revzilla, online but, there are many other reputable sellers. Enjoy the ride.

As far as rain gear, you may try looking up Frog Toggs. They are lightweight and very cost effective.
