    I've got a small tail bag from Sw-Motech, the ION S to be precise ... I think it really suits the style of the Trident, and is perfect for longer day trips ... you can vary the size between 7 and 15 litres by zipping up the double bottom.
    In addition, two velcro straps and a slot on the anti-slip underside allow for quick and secure attachment to the seat :152:

    (<- last picture is 15 litres, so twice as high)

    Looks good, do you have a picture of it with the 15 litre extension full by any chance, to see how much you can fit in it pretty please! or is that picture with the bottle etc it?

    The pic with the bottle are the "simple" 7 litre .. and that was still nothing exhausted :D there fits easy another 2 bottles in it:


    with the 15 litre used, you can additionally put for example a pair of gloves, two of the big and one small Muc-Off Cleaner/Spray/Lube in it + one towel

    (these were the only things I found in the garage in a hurry - sorry :008:)

    Sw-Motech have a short video/gif on their website for the ION S in which they pack and unpack several items of clothing (pullover, shirt, cap, shorts, towel..), which all fit in the 15L.

    I've just bought the ION S, thanks, based on your photos/comment.
    I might try sticking this on top of my 10 l Ugly Bros (Kriega rip-off) that I plan to use to stash a chain, disc lock and lightweight cover in.
    - I need a light-weight set-up for a few days overnight kit, preferably without saddlebags (I have 2x 25 l Oxford bags, but might return them).

    I also bought the Sw Motech Pro Micro tank bag a few days ago (delivery in a week or so).

    Another video from the Moto Machines channel showing the install of the Hepco & Becker C-Bow System used to attach soft luggage.

    Fitted today the Hepco and Becker panniers and the rack. Without a doubt the bike lost a lot of its clean tail looks, but on the other hand the tank bag is not very useful, and I hate riding with the backpack, so this was the necessity for me. The wife says that the bike looks now more like a 'proper' bike, but her perfect bike was Honda Deauville, so her view on the matter is slightly skewed.



    Anyway - here she is, and the panniers seem sturdier than SW Motech I had in the Bonneville and there are waterproof liners inside (and most importantly - my laptop just about fits inside).

    Eryk now that you have had these luggage bags a couple of months would you recommend them?  They still look like the only viable option out there to me, but always useful to hear from someone who actually has used them.  Thanks.

    I use them every day, and the only time I removed the bags was to wash the bike.
    They are as sturdy as on day one, and if I'm using internal liners - waterproof (to the point that I carry a laptop without a bother).
    I can easily fit a pair of safety boots in one pannier.
    Don't know what else to say. They do exactly what they're designed to do.

    Hi,
    will a full-face helmet fit inside the bag?
    TIA
