That does look good on there. Looks like it holds a good bit of stuff too.
If you look at my tank bag on the ST1100 in my photo gallery and compare, this bag holds almost twice as much simply because all the space is in one compartment rather than broken up into a few smaller compartments. And it is a little bigger besidesThat does look good on there. Looks like it holds a good bit of stuff too.
And Bob, if this is yours, what kind of attachment straps does it have? I'm trying to understand how it would attach to the CTX1300's luggage rack, but none of the pics show any kind of detail on the straps.Bob:
Is this the one you got?

It looks great. I would like some additional storage for the camping trip and that one is certainly cheap enough. I have some MotoCentric bags now that I might try to use instead but they were designed to mount onto a sissy bar so they might not work that well on the CTX.
Ideally I would like a taller version of what you got, but yours DOES fit in well with the bike!
Just saw this post other day. Bought 1off ebay. My bike has back rest on it. Used straps on saddlebags for hold downs. Seems to work. Thanks for the picsSince I really don't think a tank bag will work well on this bike I decided to get a tail bag to do that job. I've had a tank bag on my last 2 bikes. OK, the Burgman really doesn't have a "tank" to put a bag on (it's under the seat!) but that one was referred to as a "tank" bag and sat in the step through space. I missed having something like that since I haven't been riding the ST any more (still trying to sell). I like having a smallish bag to hold stuff I carry in with me at work or other places I go on the bike. This tail bag, as I use it, works great and was a gift from my son and his wife.
It only came with 4 very short straps since it's intended to be added on top of a luggage set but I had a few longer straps the same width that I put the clips onto and run those under the seat. Works great. They bought it on Amazon. It has a wide long strap to go around a sissy bar or backrest. If I add that item, meaning my wife decided to ride with me, I will then mount it behind that and strapped on the luggage rack.
I think it looks very nice on the back seat. :smiley-happy0034:
I even think it complements the looks back there

Yep, I have the luggage rack, and I think some other ones do too, and this is a video on how I installed mine at:Don't have the luggage rack. I only added the tail bag here on the the pillion.
When I pack for camping I'll pack my small aluminum folding table (from Walmart) or an even smaller one from Scheels (?) on the bottom with a foam knee pad under that to protect the bike and use the table for additional tie points if I need to. Don't think I'll have a problem though since I'll only have a few dry bags on top that I'll be able to tie on with the existing hooks on the bike. Haven't test packed yet so we'll see. I'll try to remember to get a photo of my packed-for-camping load on the bike.
Someone else here does have the luggage rack though, I think.
WOW, 3 years?? Oh, how time flies, or how quickly I forget when the last time that I posted it. LOL It is still being used to this day, and I love it. Oh, yeah me too, although, if you have seen my "Arkansas Tours" playlist, you will see how much of a workout it gets, and even going back and forth to work with a computer case strapped to it. How long are your rides? Sometimes, when I go on just a tour of Arkansas, it can take me pretty much all day, and I have yet to remove it at all.@renegadebiker24, That post was almost 3 years ago (end of this month will be 3 years since buying the CTX1300). I since did add the tail rack 2 years ago and still keep the insert from the bike in my tail bag to use for color matching when I finally get around to stopping at an auto shop to get touch up paint. Just never get around to stopping mid-trip since I'm enjoying the ride so much, even though my rides aren't all very long.
See my Flickr albums to see how I pack now for moto camping.
