I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about motorcycle luggage. It’s a real catch 22. On one hand, one of the things I love about motorcycles is the bare essence and the minimalism of the activity. A motorcycle looks and performs best when it is unencumbered by excess baggage. However, motorcycling is also about travel and adventure, and for this you need to take stuff with you. Over my years of motorcycle travel, I have come to the realization that a good tank bag is a great thing.
Okay, so a gear bag is not a sexy purchase. It’s not exciting like a new helmet with the latest graphics. It’s not as intriguing as a new pair of racing boots. It’s not even as interesting as a new jersey. However, you need something to keep all of those cool things together and safe. That’s where the Oigo MX9800 Gear Bag shines.

What a really cool idea this backpack from AGVSport is.
It has in integrated helmet holder that can be whipped out to hold your helmet when off the bike, or if you want to take a spare helmet with you for a passenger later on in the ride.
It’s extremely comfortable with the helmet in place and it’s secured very tightly with straps and a clip so you won’t lose it at speed. The helmet actually sits on the outside of the backpack so you can use the inside to carry stuff.
The other thing is the size; it will fit a laptop easily, and has numerous pockets all over. You can hold a water bottle, and the two large pockets are 9.5 x 4.5 inches, the two 2 smaller round pockets on each side 5.5 x 4.5 inches
It looks water resistant and its very light; this is something that you have to have in your luggage arsenal.
The bag is only price at $59.00

To this end, you see big BMW and KTM adventure bikes with military-looking aluminum side bags. You also have KLR dual-sports with tank bags that have more pockets than a troop of kangaroos (yes, that's what it called).
