I think we have a winner! You have just ruined my excuse to my OL for not bringing home takeout for diner when I am going somewhere on my scoot.

Licks solo bag, holds 2litre bottle of pop, or a 6 pack. Perfect for the little things you don't want to stuff, or can't stuff in your pockets. I have two, one on each side...

I went ahead an bought a really cheap set of throw overs for when I need them. I know some will say should have gone for quality, but...

I'm daily commuter have to cary just a few things to work. Tour pack works best for me, did not like throw over bags much, fabric gets dirty from daily usage, not as durable.

How did you mount the ammo tins?

Sorry, just saw this.

There is an aluminum plate (painted black) bolted to the fender struts and then the cans are bolted to the plate with 1/2" spacers to offset it from the plate.

I used some LED light bars on the side and back of ammo cans for blinkers.

Here are a couple of pics-

What do some of you folks use?
I use the original Tourpak. It came on my 1976 FLH. It's been on all my scoots for decades.

no pics
for daily use I Motocentric Centrek backpack or if I shooting photos then its my Tamrac Adventure 9 photo-computer backpack

For camping I used to use a big duffle bag put the tent,pad,bag inside and bungee it to the back seat.
for road trips I usually use a magnetic tank bag and a tailpack made for sport bikes, well we do ride Sporties after all.

I'll see if I can dig up a pic from when I camp in Hollister CA

Nowdays my idea of roughing it is if the motel only has basic cable.
