Ok I got blinded bu the road star warrior and bought one not realising one of the reasons i wanted a bigger bike was so I could put bags on it. I need to be able to carry a spair helmit and some small junk. What are you guys using for bags? has anyone found anything that looks nice?

I don't know if you'll go for this, but i thought it was a good idea for a temp. thing for going back and forth to work and so on. http://www.seatac2000.com/warrior/bags.htm personally i don't like the looks of bags on any bike because it hides it to much. this way you can take them on and off easily, and they sit up high for more clearance..

I agree, not big on bags. But those are not to bad. Now if I could only find that in a cleaner looking bag. There is just no storage and when I go out it is nice ot carry a spair helmit, Just in case someone needs it /emoticons/emotion-1.gif, or to go to the store for small supplies.

How do they keep from going into the rear wheel? That has alwas been my issue.

I like the look of the Yamaha bags that they make for the Warrior... check them out on the Yamaha site.

I believe that Joe Rocket makes very similar bags that will work.

I have a tank bag that has the straps and magnets...its small and easy to carry around back pack style if the need arises. You can also secure it to the bike with the straps!

I use a backpack to haul my stuff. I set it low on the shoulders to rest on the seat. I miss the bags my Heritage had, but most of the time they were empty anyway.

I have a laptop bag that doubles as a back pack, but on my 20 mile trek to work riding here in the south, well...it gets awfully hot and sticky. I work in an office so I try to stay reasonably presentable. I bought the tank bag to deal with that problem.

I prefer the good old fashion "If it doesn't fit in your pockets, it doesn't go with." But I do like the set up that billh1943 has on his bike. Check out his website.http://www.angelfire.lycos.com/retro/billh1943/

I purchased Yamaha's Magnetic Expandable Tank Bag and stick it on the rear fender. Works Great! Looks Great! And Trust me, will not go anywhere even in the pouring rain. That magnetic bag has done 6800 miles with me. I never leave home without it. It even has the nice Yamaha Star Logo on it. I plan on getting those Warrior Bags soon!
