Large panniers can hold a lot, but when you live and work from the road on your motorcycle for prolonged periods of time, they’re not enough. Rather than carrying additional items in a permanently mounted top case on my bike, I prefer to use a removable bag secured with tie downs and bungees that I can carry as needed.
I look for luggage that will stand up to the rigors of the road. That means it needs to be durable, convenient to use, versatile, and waterproof. I recently tested Ortlieb’s mid-sized, 49-liter MOTO Rack-Pack on an extended journey on my Triumph motorcycle.
Expect excellent performance, longevity, and utility from the Ortlieb MOTO Rack-Pack. In fact it’s so useful, I even use it for non-motorcycle traveling. It comes in three sizes: 31 liters costs $110, 49 liters is $125, and 89 liters costs $138. To learn more and to order online, visit OrtliebUSA.com.
