When my wife asks me to stop off at the grocer on my way home from work, we both know that without the car, I may be limited as to what I can bring home on the scoot.
Don't get me wrong, between the curry hook, SX soft top case and the bungee net to strap stuff to the pillion seat, I've been able to bring home some pretty amazing loads.
But it takes some fussing and rearranging... and Murphy's law dictates that I remember I need to refuel only after I've bungee netted a bunch of shopping bags to the seat.
This week while I was at my mechanic for my fluid, belt and brake checks, I spotted a really well made set of roll up saddle bags. They are black cordura with a Velcro closure and a reflective strip. They have enough structure / stiffness to hold their shape when empty, but roll up teeny tiny when not in use so you can keep them under your seat or in your top case. They even have a center carry handle so you can use them while you are in the store instead of a shopping cart.
Best of all, they are cheap; the equivalent of $20 bucks here, so I imagine in the US or UK they might be less.
I don't have a web link for them (yet), but if your shop can't find them for you, I'd be happy to send them to any MV members who would like to add them to their kit.
Pics to be added in a moment.
[be patient if I don't respond over the next couple of days. Rosh Hashana will have my attention]
