Velocity Tail Bag soft motorcycle luggage
Id been thinking

travel luggage capacity to the CBR for
quick jaunts around town and small trips.

for office commuting. Dress shirt, tie,
slacks, and sometimes shoes, go straight
in. When I arrive, I unclip and stow the
bungee hooks in seconds, clip on the
handy shoulder strap, and Im off.
The Velocity tail bag
feels good aerodynamically. I never know
that its there. Its stable
and secure. It looks good to boot!
This Velocity Tail Bag has
become my constant riding companion.
