Cheap, small, tail bag needed

Well after a short hiatus of vstrom ownership, I’m back. Sold my DL650 a couple months ago and just fell into an 02 DL1000 yesterday. It has 46000 miles, just serviced and inspected. Stock except for racetech worked forks and Remus titanium exhaust.

Like a dummy I sold my Givi top box to the guy that bought my 650.

I need a small storage space on the luggage rack - just enough to keep a hat in, or other small items.

Doesn’t need to be fancy, and I can’t spend a lot of money. A small soft bag that can be removed without too much trouble. Something like that.

I have a small Bilt tail bag, purchased from Cycle Gear, $25. They have sales all the time. Measures about 14x 10x 8, maybe the size of the average tank bag. Mounting rings at the 4 corners, came with adjustable straps but usually I just use bungees. The Bilt brand also has various tank bags and soft saddlebags, not exactly top quality but budget priced and works well enough.

I use Tapatalk and the search function is worthless, FYI. Thanks for the tip though!

I picked up a small tail bag from eBay many years ago for approx. $20. Small and expandable vertically to double that size. Pic below. Just search and you can probably find something that works for you.

I would really recommend NOT going cheap. I've lost stuff off the back due to poor bags. Just get the Wolfman tail bag. Its the best I've ever used.

Amazon has many options. I got one for $88 on Amazon and it works wonderfully. Got another for my wife’s bike.

I had one of those Yescom trunks on my DL6550 until I won a Large SIDI trunk at the Dakota Gathering. The Yescom smelled like mothballs the whole time i had it. Bad enough that you would not want to put you lunch in there.

Harbor freight has some good small waterproof boxes that can be re-purposed later.

I should note that I have never opened one to see what it smells like.
