Doc, others will speak up with suggestions.
The trunk on my bike is the one that Kawasaki offers (Built by Givi).
I like it because it matches the bike. Definitely not the best nor the least expensive.

There are lots of options for smaller or bigger bags.
1 EZ place to look is Ebay. (Hundreds of possibilities)
Another is look at Murph's site. (He carries a nice one)
I suspect the Wizard will have some Kawasaki/other  bags too.

Ride safe, Ted

I like this Motocentric tail bag, and its rain cover. But apparently it’s no longer produced.

Doc, I just saw this on Ebay.
Might be of interest to you/others?
I just realized it's damaged, but if someone plans a repaint?

Ride safe, Ted

Thanks for the suggestion - looks like a decent buy.  I'm really looking for a small soft bag to compliment the side bags.

I have used inexpensive tank bags as tail bags, just have to modify mounting points.

I have that exact tail bag and I love it! I use it on my longer trips to carry my food & drinks plus some other small items. Very convenient and doesn't add to the bulk of the tail. It's also expandable and it comes with a rain cover too. When I'm doing short trips in the the twisties I'll take off the side bags and keep small tools/insurance,etc in the tail bag.


Someone I know has this bag and likes it.

Though I have a Givi Monokey 46, I also have an Ogio Tail Bag and love it. Great for when I need the extra capacity.
