Lamenting for a place to store your lunch, a second layer, or maybe even an overnight change of clothes? Some sport bikes offer a mini-trunk with enough space for at least your sunglasses, wallet and maybe your hat if you crush it down. But in general, most are lacking.
However the FastPack, from the Cycle Guys, is a semi-custom-fit tail bag that wraps over the rear seat section and works very well. Zip it open and transport up to 8 liters of freight. It is perfect for day trips or maybe even an overnighter. When not in use, zip it down into a carbon-fiber look seat pad.
Unlike a tank bag, it won’t scratch your tank or interfere with refueling-and you never actually need to bother removing the pack.
The patent pending FastPack is constructed with nylon-canvas, marine-grade vinyl and a waterproof zipper to help protect your valuables from the weather.
We found that size 1 fit the Triumph 675 very well. It is currently available in 4 sizes, so check the application chart below or their website for future releases.

Also available from the Cycle Guys is the CruisePack. It is the same
idea as the FastPack but for your cruiser. Essentially it is a suction
cup bag and pillion pad that sticks to the rear fendor. You can learn more about the CruisePack at the link below.
