While leather bags offer more of a cruiser look, nylon soft luggage delivers greater utility for riders on a long tour. Last year, just in time for the Honda Hoot and the summer touring season, I ordered a set of Tour Master's soft luggage. Because I'm prone to overpacking, I opted for a tank bag and saddlebags in the largest sizes available. On a lark, I decided to add a tail bag. After numerous road trips in both dry and wet conditions, the Tour Master luggage has held up well -- with a few minor exceptions.
