I've covered a lot of miles with my Kriega R35 backpack. Never even notice it's there.

Touring? I am sure most can afford a second comfortable bike like a BMW.
don't do that to the ducati pretty please!

Imagine a Ferrari towing a trailer? this is how it's seen...

Did you check out Corbin's setup? Smuggler pack I think it is called, do a search.

Hi,

Those panniers are fuel tanks for the cannonball run...

I've been riding sports bikes flat out through europe for decades, I just can't see how you can ride at 100mph + all day on backroads with a rucksack on, you must be knackered (very, very tired in UK language). How do you hang off and drag your knee? how do you ride the canyons fast with rucksacks and tank bags? I need to be free to move around and tuck behind the screen... You guys must be fitter than me... god, the thought of a rucksack on my back..... and the thought of crashing with a rucksack especially those hard panelled ones... eek!

If you're just out charging the twisties there's no need to carry any gear.

I wouldn't ride with an ordinary rucksack. It would be bulging and sliding and dragging and getting caught all over the place. But the Kriega (and probably a few other brands) is a different sort. It's more like a parachute harness than a rucksack. Everything is very tight and compact. It zips right up your chest like a jacket over your leathers. Unless you pack something stupid inside, I don't see how it could become a hazard.

I'm keeping my eye open for some small side bags. When we hit the canyons we tend to be out for a few hours and the extra storage is welcomed. Versatility is the key. I ride 38mi to work each night/day, often times the wx is very different from home to work and etc. So having some storage is essential, for now I just modded a tail bag to bolt onto a spare seat, holds all the wet gear, tools, water, Rockstar etc..but can popped off with the key so track time is quick as well.

I have had no problem with a top box on the back and doing stupid speeds or through the twisties. The only problem with wearing a back pack is that you will break either ribs if your lucky or you back if you come off. The hump on your back is bad in a crash.

Good point on the potential for injury. Suspect much of that could also be relative to the weight and shape of the load. Same for the trunk/rear case. Your simpler setup here vs. the rack setups and some of the really huge packs seems sensible in that you don't need to spend much and you can somewhat control looks by using an even smaller bag.
Any pics on your mounts?

I made it to fit where the rear seat is. It mount to the 4 bolts that hold the tail on. The givi mount then bolts onto the 8mm blots. works very well.

Humpo, very nice setup, similar to what I did with my soft Oxford Hump Pack pictured above, although I was lazier and just found a used pillion seat to cut n drill mount through I might be on the prowl for a used Givi now, good post.
