    Default M109R Storage?

    I'm curious to know what you guys are doing for some basic storage on the 9? Basically, just looking to stash my rain gear on the bike. Not crazy about saddle bags or anything really bulky.

    Would appreciate your thoughts or pics of what others have done.
    Thanks.

    Tank bag, luggage rack. My rain gear fits the tank bag easily. I also installed the luggage rack and secured the tank bag on it for a while. I have pics at home if someone doesn't show you first.

    Agree with the tank bag..rain gear fits in no problem..when I need more I just throw on the back seat with the duece luggage rack with a travel bag on it...

    My tank bag is pretty much with me 80% of the time just to damn handy..

    I use The Joe Rocket Manta bag. Big enough to hold a gallon of windshield washer fluid. I also use the oem saddle bags and on top of that, i use the Corbin smuggler that I bought off of Andy Above.

    Pics as promised....First is the tank bag...looks bulky there, but you don't know it's there while riding. Second is the tank stored on the luggage rack, which I tried for a while on everyday riding, but seriously, the rack is for longer travel only. Last is the luggage rack, which I happen to have for sale right now ($125 shipped). I was given a lightweight storage container which fits with my rear seat, so don't need two. Sorry for the shameless sales pitch.

    Thanks for all the responses (and shameless pitches! ).

    I'm definitely leaning towards the Corbin smuggler - I'm guessing because Corbin is in the name, I'll need to remortgage my house to get one. Time to start scoping Ebay!

    Thanks again everyone!

    One thing about the Smuggler, and I think the owners of one would agree...rain gear would "maybe" fit in there. It looks cool and all, but not a lot of room.

    When I bought my Smuggler back in 201, it was a little over $500 painted. Still have it, sill my only form of storage. I have a tank bag but haven't used it in several years.
