You didn’t build a chopper or a badass FXR wheelie ripper because you wanted a bagger. You did it because you wanted lean and mean in the motorcycle department. That doesn’t mean you can’t carry gear with you on a ride though. On a long trip that means some sort of backpack, sissy bar bag, or leather bags. But what about the day-to-day abuse you heap on your scoot for fun? That’s where these six options come in.
Tool bags are the old go-to for carrying the basics you need to keep your motorcycle running in case the road bites it in the backside. Smaller than a backpack or saddlebags, they either strap to your bike or stick to its metal gas tank via magnets. Pricing on tool bags varies almost as widely as the iron you find it on; no matter what you consider as your mobile tool kit of choice, there’s a bag for it.
