I'm looking to do a trip of about 1000 miles on my T100 in the next week or so and would like to make up a roll to carry a small amount of clothing etc that I can tie or strap across the hump on the rear of the seat.

I will have fabric saddle bags fitted to the brackets, however could tie the roll to the brackets, I also have a tank bag.
Any thoughts?:)

Once upon a time about 4 yrs ago before I found my Cortech Sport Luggage. I used a small plain old duffel bag and put everything in plastic bags. I was able to pack everything I needed for a week and over 3K miles. And yes we did hit rain. Mostly the stuff stayed dry, just wrap it good.

Find whatever bag you can strap down and use large zip locks to sort your packings and put the whole lot of them into a very thick trash bag (3 mils) and then into your canvas or whatever bag that you are strapping down to the seat, rear grab rail and/or passenger footpeg area. Have a good time, stay dry...

When I head out for Sturgis, I use a canvas bag, drawstring on one side. I pack anything I don't want wet in garbage bags. (although I also spray the canvas with some H2O proof stuff) I have a bigger bike, so use a huge pack that I can fit my tenting stuff in. But you could also use a smaller one if you don't need the room. I bought mine for about $20 at a Gander Mountain. Works great.
