When a biker is going out on a trip, hiking at the hills, travel and the like he always has to bring along many things that he will need during his adventure and that just can't be carried in hands or backpack. It will be necessary to somehow transport these things attaching them to his bike. Motorcycle side luggage system does exactly that. Install the racks, then either strap on your bag or connect motorcycle luggage side cases. Fill it with stuff and you're all ready to go! Be sure to select one method of transporting. It is either top mounting or side mounting. The first adds up back wheel load affecting accelerations while the latter is minus few points in maneuverability. Although the impact is insignificant there is one situation we should avoid. Try not to use only one casing without the other because this leans a vehicle to the side and makes difference in the amount of muscle strength needed to make a turn.
If you do not venture far from your bike then motorcycle side cases made of solid material and firmly jointed to the body of your vehicle would be preferable choice. Otherwise, if there is a leg of the route to travel on foot, easily-detached motorcycle side bag comes handy. Carry it around like a backpack. And when you are back you can strap it on once again. Sometimes flexibility matters so choose wisely. It never hurts to have both options ready though for combinations of selections above are limitless. Swapping cases for trunks and vice versa at will is a great way to keep bare essentials at hand with more equipment waiting at stop point. Bags may be any general you have at home or provided with the system when they are having ropes, wires or locks to fix them in place.
