Default What bags do you use in trips or in daily riding?

Recently I have bought "Bags Connection Blaze Panniers For Honda CBR600RR". I think it optimal option for such bike at the long trip . In daily riding I use a backpack. What do you use ?
Sorry if this topic already have had on the forum.

I have Oxford soft saddlebags that i use to carry more stuff/parts and a Honda OEM tank bag which i mostly use. I like this one more cause its the strap type not the magnets type (which wont stick on an RR tank cover and would scratch it as well)
But like you, i mostly use a backpack as its the most convenient way to carry stiff without worrying about taking it off the bike or whatever.

I do several long distance rides... I use Ogio saddle/tail combo bags, which are similar to yours... I got an Ogio backpack that I use to cart around my laptop and other electronics... I also use a Joe Rocket tank bag... For everyday, I use my tank bag... even with it fully loaded, I can barely fill the weight... I try not to wear a backpack if possible and if I do, I try to keep the weight down...

How does you attach the bag on the tank? It is plastic.

The tank bag that I use has magnets and the tank of the 02 CBR 954rr (my bike) is metal... I have never had a problem with the magnets damaging or discoloring the tank at all... Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the 600rr has some plastic incorporated in the tank construction. Then you will probably need to use straps or a combination of straps and magnets... IMHO, a medium size tank bag is perfect for everyday use... The weight is placed better for the ride and I don't feel the weight at all... If I have to take my laptop anywhere, then I use a backpack... If you decide to use a backpack, then here are a few tips... Try to use a smaller backpack if possible... Something that isn't so big that it catches the wind... Try to keep the weight down if possible... I hope this helps...

I'm an F4i guy but I just ordered these. I'm a big guy, about 235 lbs @ 5'11 "but I can see all my abs so no fat jokes :P" and it's a real pain in the *** to take my back pack off, especially with it getting hung on my jacket's armor. This leg bag should make it easier to get to my wallet, phone, water bottle, food and anything else like that that's relatively small.

I ordered these for long trips which I am really looking forward to. I haven't received either of these yet so no word yet on quality. I have an undertail kit too so I hope that doesn't affect the tail bags too much, but screw ugly mud flaps :P

Both of these were pretty reasonably priced unlike a lot of the stuff I see. $14 shipped for the leg bag and $60 shipped for the saddle bags.

CBR's tank is fully plastic. I have never saw no one who using bag tank on cbr600rr.
I don't have to carry a laptop, so I always use a small bag to travel.)

With the tank made entirely out of plastic you would have to utilize straps... Most tank bag straps have some sort of quick disconnect system... But having part of the strap always attached to the bike isn't ideal... I imagine that a back pack would be more convenient... That probably why CBR600rr owners don't use tank bags... Nothing wrong with a back pack...

One issue I do have with my backpack is this. It's a Swiss bag made for laptops. Normally, it's great. The small downfall it has is that in-between the shoulder straps is a hand grab handle. It's made of heavy duty cable and coated well. the issue is that when I wear it while riding, that hand grab handle kind of pushes up on the back of my helmet. Other than that, I love it. I've had it for almost 5 years and use it daily.

I use a smaller sized hiking bag, as it is long and narrow. I can't remember who makes it, since it has no logos on it. It was purchased at my BX on base here, with all the other bugout bags and backpacks. Great to ride with, very light, but holds ALOT. Waterproof, And has a chest strap to keep it tight to you. Had it for 2 years now with no complaints.
