Rear fender pouch wanted for my WR

My dealer had black Yamaha fender bags for only $16. I think he said that they were for ATVs but they work great for rear fenders on bikes. I put one on mine and like it.

Well it's not the prettiest thing out there but it does hold my insurance and registration, and the spare plug and tool, will have to do for now.....

Fender bags look so gay.

I agree. Real men wear fanny packs instead. :applause::D:prof:

Okay, I was waiting for the fanny pack input. Here's what I did. I was in WalMart waiting for the wife to finish buying a bunch of crap and saw some black fanny packs for $4.99 on the end of an aisle. I bought a couple of them, cut out some thin plastic to stiffen up the bottom, cut the straps off and bolted it down to the back fender. Looks a lot like the one MountainMax has pictured and was cheap. Saved some money for some NOS stickers so my bike can go faster.

Why not just wear a backpack and put the stuff in there? I carry tools, two tubes of slime, a bicycle pump, towrope and small pully, lunch, gatorade, jacket and a 100oz bladder bag. its really not heavy on my back. I don't have that extra weight on my a$$. I also look pretty manly keeping the back of the bike clean.

Whats wrong with a backpack? It gets the job done.

I agree. I have used all three. Rear fender packs hit you in the A$$, thrash your tools, and give your bike that "Share The Trails" look. Fanny packs end up bouncing around putting strain on your lower back and pulling on your guts. I have a Camelbak Mule and to me it is the best size for the common trail ride. Enough room for your tools and spare stuff like survival gear, snacks, and levers. For all day high mileage rides I have a larger Fox backpack that holds a 100oz bladder, lunch, and enough room for overnight survival gear for two if need be, but it does get heavy. After using a backpack I will never go back to the other two options.

When i do long rides i take my yamaha backpack, but i keep my registration and insurance in there (in a baggie) and a few other small things, it's bolted down on three sides so it don't bounce around, It's just a safety glasses case i got from work, (shush) but it will do until i find a better one.
