Scram luggage opinions needed...

Looking for luggage opinions... I've looked through the entire thread on adv (165 pages)!! and the pics thread here + searched here and web. Seen some nice options... Was originally thinking metal mules but they're pricey and not completely sure I want boxes. Some really nice tail bag/tank bag combos wolfman have some nice bags, pelicans and ammo cans. Anyone use giant loop basin bag? What are people using for, let's say a moto camping setup on your scrams? Or on a trip?

Thanks in advance

I rode cross-country from VA-CA on my scrambler. I used a Renntech rear rack, Kreiga 30liter roll bag for my clothes, another duffel style 30liter rollbag for my camping gear, and then a water proof back pack for quick access items (rain gear). Also brought along a 1.25 gallon gas can. Cargo nets come in handy for piece of mind.

Looking at that photo with that set up it looks like you could wack the throttle and get very light with the front wheel. Good on ya. Reminds me of 80's camping trips on my 750 Honda with a ****load of gear bungeed to the rack.

Not quite, but it did make for a nice back rest.

So far going with a wolfman beta plus rear bag but looking for a tank bag... Help!

Tank bags for scramblers?

Triumph's own tankbag is a beaut, it will work on any of the Bonnies (std, T100, SE, Thruxton, Scrambler). It has a strap down base with an easily removable & expandable tankbag. There is a built in rain cover. They occasionally come up for sale in the Classifieds...about $90-$100 used, new s/b around $150 or so.
Good luck,
Tom

Check with MADSS, see this page, down a few items:

I couldn't get their link to work this am, but they carry the Triumph Tank Bag, costs $136 + shipping - good value.
