    I also have a Nelson Rigg tank bag, which is why I am considering their dry bag.

    My tank bag has over 30,000 miles on it with no signs of distress.

    Thanks for the Dry Pak Duffel review. A friend and I just completed a 1,000 mile ride to and through the Texas Hill Country - rode Hwy 16 and the Three Sisters. All my camping gear was strapped on and wrapped in plastic bags with duct tape. I'm sure to be purchasing one of these bags before the next adventure! P.S. - Any good ideas for strapping gear onto the NT700V? I did the best I could with bungee cords.

    Rok Straps work great.

    First Gear just came out with a line of three waterproof dry bags. I bought the small 25 liter one for about $53.00. It fits easily on the passenger seat. I don't camp so its big enough for the overflow that will not fit in my side bags or top box. Appears to be well made. The lack of water resistance became apparent in the bag I used when I went to the TNT rally in the rain so an upgrade seemed like a good idea for the next trip.

    When I read your question, I can see two potential directions the answers can take.
    1. What kind of strap do you use?
    2. Where do you attach the strap?


    The answer for the first, will probably be ROK straps by the majority (though not all). Coming from a Burgman 400, one of the first things I noticed was the lack of good places to strap your load on the pillion seat on the NT. The Burgman's hand rails are shaped different and have locations for two bungee screws built into them. So I started a thread How Do You Tie Down Your Gear? that might help answer the second, if that's the info you're looking for.

    I have a Givi top box and found that when I removed the top box, some locations were there on the mounting plate that I hadn't noticed before. So if you have a removable top box, you might try lifting it off so you can look at the mounting plate for some locations to use for tie straps that were previously hidden.

    I saw something recently that I thought was a great idea. The principle was that they had put two straps under the seat that had a loop or open end in each end. You could use those two straps with their open ends to attach your gear with bungee cords or ROK straps. I thought it was a pretty simple idea. And a nice part about them, was if you were making a couple day long trip, you could leave the straps in place when you removed the load for the night.

    Here's a simple drawing I made using the Partzilla.com seat diagram.

    I have the super xtra large version of Joe's Drypak duffel...Its either 110 or 130 liters...its BIG...ROK straps are the way to go. By design they want to stay tight or get tighter as opposed to other methods which loosen over the course of a days ride
