Luggage for the inazuma??
« on: August 10, 2020, 08:01:03 PM »
I checked the previous thread and i could not find anything on bags and luggage? I am looking for an affordable saddlebag for the Inazuma but could not find anything cheaper than the Viking Bags Axe Sports Saddlebag  product is ok, price is also affordable the only thing I am a bit worried about is the waterproofing, by the design it does not look like a waterproof bag nor it is mentioned on the product page but they are offering a rain cover.

I know my budget is low and it will be immoderate to seek all in that budget but just asking if there is any other brand which is offering waterproofing in that price range?

Have no experience of this particular bag but from the experience I do have unless it states it's waterproof - it's not.
The fact that there is an additional rain cover would back this theory up.

I have a set of these which have been waterproof for me but I always put my items in polythene bags inside them just in case !

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left !

Hi to all! I try to reply to this old post for a (maybe stupid) question: when using these side bags is it necessary to install some kind of side frames on the bike? Many thanks to all!!!

Yes, otherwise they lift up / out at speed.

depend on how low the bag sit, too low and it run the risk of curving into the wheel or chain/sproket
and no it will not lift up and out at speed,130km/h max for inazuma anyways, if you tie it down (all bag came with system to tie down to the bike)
