    Hi everyone,
    New Chieftain DH owner here. I am looking for a recommendation for a large rear seat bag that fits and attaches to the sissy bar for the Chieftain. Needs to have enough room for a full face helmet and similar capacity to an international carry-on for clothing and sundries. Living here in Washington having a waterproof cover is a must.

    Thanks for the help.

    If anyone can come up with somewhere to buy tan luggage that will come close to the desert tan used by Indian Im sure that would be a hot ticket item among all the Vintage riders.

    I bought a Set of Tourmaster bags come with the rain cover and fits on my sissy bar. I can pack a weeks worth of clothes in it military stile. I love these bags. Around $275.00 is what I paid for them at the Honda dealership here in Texarkana, TX

    Troopster,
    I'm not sure if you want a piece of luggage or just a great waterproof bag. I use this on long trips, the medium is large enough for a couple pair of jeans , a jacket , toiletries bag etc. and attaches easily with provided straps, easy on and off.

    This is the one I had my eye on. BR3400EX Do you have a picture of this mounted on a Chieftain seat?

    I'm going on a 2 week ride from Seattle Wa through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and maybe South Dakota and I'm going to use this Wolfman Luggage Beta Plus Rear Bag. It's water proof with tons of storage room and comes with additional dry bags. I plan on packing a full face, hammock tent, clothes, sleeping bag, and some odds and ends.

    Check out the video on Revzilla. An amazing bag for an unbeatable price on Amazon.

    I haven't actually used the two together yet. I used the bag for a trip in November and it worked great although it hasn't been caught in the rain yet. The rack I just got and haven't had the chance to ride with it on, it's a little cold here in Iowa. But here is a pic of them on my CDH. The bag has several connection points, 4 on top, the 2 handles, 2 below the handles and the ones on the front in the picture that could be used to cinch a bedroll or something to. I really like the hard bottom to help it keep it's shape and keep it off the hard bags. I got the bag from Woot.com for $30, and I am very happy with it so far.

    OK so you're one up. I'm looking for a rack to fit on a Corbin dual tourer seat. I know Dirty Bird has a nice one for $400.00+ for chrome. That is a nice looking set up. Would like to see what it looks like from the side.

    I've got the Iron Rider Main Bag and Overnight Bag along with a cheap leather roll bag I got from Jafrum. They come with a rain cover, which I have used.
