Hey T, yes they will. You have to get a little creative with the strap location. I use an Eclipse bag that I have had since the mid '70s. I looped a piece of webbing under the tank bracket in the rear and looped across the steering head an looped around the tank mounts on each side. Need any pics, let me know.So will a regular old fashioned strap type of bag work on the Strom tank?
I've got on old TourMaster expandable tank bag I'm hoping will work on my new (to me) '05 Strom.
I have the small Daypack but I agree... an awesome system!!!I have a SW Motech bag on mine. It is gascap mounted - love it!
Check it out. Better than anything I have ever had on my Strom...
You carryin' lead weights or something, greywolf? If it's really heavy enough to make a difference, I strap it to the passenger seat in front of my top box, since I'm primarily a solo rider. BigStrom really isn't that sensitive to weight (within reason, of course). I prefer to load the rear shock, rather than put more weight on the front suspension. The rear has a dial to adjust preload, and my front doesn't. I can crank up the stiffness easily to accomodate more weight. It really doesn't mess with the CoG much that way.The tank bag has the best placement for heavy items and the tail trunk has the worst. Also, a tall tank bag with something soft on top is great to lean on for long trips. I did a lot of miles on the R90s with my chest on the back of the bag with my chin on my fist on the front of the bag.
