Anyone have any reccomendations for luggage rack bags for the cross bikes? I'm trying to maximize the amount of space I have while having a bag with at least a waterproof cover when i'm stuck in rain. I've been eyeing up the TR3300DLE bag from saddlemen but i'm not sure of its fit with the luggage racks.


anyone else use / have one they love?

Full disclosure: One of the guys I work with is the son of the owners of T-Bags.

I have a T-Bags Concord and a T-Bags Dakota. The Concord fits very well, and the Dakota fits almost as well but has much more capacity.

Here are the links:

Concord: http://www.tbags.com/detail.aspx?ID=96&SelectedCat=3
Dakota: http://www.tbags.com/detail.aspx?ID=77&SelectedCat=3

I worked with the folks there to pick those bags, as the normal sissy-bar attachment only go up to pads 14" wide, and the stock Victory X-bike pad is 17" wide straight across. They are designed for Harley Davidson trunk luggage racks, but they work just fine on the Victory luggage rack.

I just got my Dakota, but here's a pic of the Concord on the back of my bike:

hey, i dont care if you work for tbags :) i'm just trying to find something someone used that fits and attaches nicely. They both look great, concord is a beast and more of what i'm in need of now... but the dakota looks good as a smaller option when i dont need as much space

is the bottom of both stiff enough to not sag with it loaded?

The Dakota is the bigger bag, actually. Check out this picture. The top bag is the Dakota, the bottom one is the Concord:


The Concord bottom fits mostly on the rack, has a stiff bottom and doesn't sag. The Dakota, without the detachable ends, sticks out towards the back of the rack a little bit and the bottom isn't as stiff. I bought it for the long trips, and I'm betting if it is stuffed it won't sag too much. Like I said, I just got it. :)

nice thanks for the clarification, got them mixed up. Need something for long weekends with the wife. Guess I gotta lay out the measurements, but its looking like the Dakota would be nice for that. Thanks for the info about what you use
