I've got a 2000 Adventurer and have a couple questions. I tried the search function but got frustrated at being asked to wait 15s between searches. I'm interested in a tank bag, and maybe a tail/seat bag, anyone have any recommendations? What do you all do about a helmet lock, any recommendations in that regard.

thanks

Here's what works for me:

Helmet lock: http://www.cyclegadgets.com/products/product.asp?Item=GUARDIAN

This helmet lock has dual locks. I use one for a helmet and the other for my jacket. I made a steel cable with loops on both ends. I snake this through a sleeve of the jacket and lock it to the unused lock.

Tail bag: http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/catalog/Sport-Tail-Bag-p-148_31.html

I've been using this bag for several years. It's faithfully transported laptops, clothes, and other miscellaneous stuff. It includes a rain fly as well.

Tank bag:

No idea or recommendations on that.

I've been using a generic magnetic Tank bag for the last few years with my Adventurer (up to about 20L fully expanded) which I bought from my local Halfords. But recently I've invested in a Baglux tank bag with a leather tank protector. Pricey but I don't have to worry about damaging the paint work and the tank cover is designed for the Adventurer ( and other Classic Hinkley Triples) tank.
Generally good quality kit with a large selection of bags to choose from.

Hermy's still lists the stock tank bag on their website (which most likely means that they have it in stock). http://www.motorcyclestore.us/triumph/accessories/retro/tankbags/index.html

I use to have a generic helmet lock mounted on the rear subframe above the right foot peg. It's above the exhaust, but the helmet can rest on the foot peg so it doesn't touch.

Somewhere out there is a cool looking rack for the Adventurer that is used in conjunction with a solo seat. I have no idea where you can find one anymore. Adventurer accessories are as rare as hens teeth. If you come across any, I'd buy them just in case you might want them someday.

I started out with the Cortech Sport Tailbag and still use it almost daily, it expands and fits a right good amount of groceries and beer too:D
I added the Sport Saddle Bags and a med magnetic Tank Bag for a 3000 mile trip and it was everything I needed. The setup is very user friendly.

Shop around on line for the best prices.
This site had good pics of the sport trio setup:

I just did a 660 roundtrip, overnight business trip and borrowed the standard Cortech Tail Bag for gear and work supplies, although I did use a net over it for stability:

Love the bungees on both the tail bags, very quick to get on and off.
