As funky as it is functional, the Beta Plus is essentially the fanny pack of motorcycles bags.
Like a fanny pack, that much maligned gem of the mid-90’s, the Beta Plus is effective, well-thought-out and offers a near universal fit with included universal tie-down straps. This mega-bag offers 45 liters (about 2750 cubic inches) of glorious, easy to access back-seat storage.
It adds to a standard duffel shape by adding "legs" on either side of the seat, yet it’s high enough that it’ll still clear the exhaust on most bikes. A snug installation (or removal) comes by way of three quick-release straps: one around the rear of the bike, and two toward the front to a passenger peg/bracket or somewhere on the sub-frame.
This bag can work in addition to soft- or hard-case side panniers, or instead of them. It comes with straps on the back ideal for lashing down a tent or an additional tubular duffle, such as the Renegade series.
A long crescent top zipper opening gives full access to the contents. Silver interior material makes it easier to find stuff inside the bag. External side pockets help keep gear organized and are great for quick-access items. Non-skid/non-scratch material on the base helps keep the bag in place and helps keep the bike looking sharp. Four outside compression straps keep the load tight.
The Beta bag is highly water resistant. If you want it to be fully waterproof, check out the Beta Plus Rain Cover—which conveniently comes with built-in passages for the duffel- or tent-mounting straps on the rear of the Beta Bag.
