Why buy a new tail bag
So, I have been debating whether or not to buy a motorcycle tail bag for my scout sixty. I thought that I could just get away with just having my saddlebags, but after riding around for a couple of years I know realize that I need one. I mean going downtown and just going to the mall or going shopping and having to carry my helmet every I go, or getting some food or a couple of items from the super market no longer become a hassle. With my new Indian Viking Century Motorcycle Tail Bag life has just become a little easier.
A Place To Store My Stuff
When I go riding around town I like to see places that I have never seen before and especially on my bike. But, as I ride along I always feel a little hesitant to stop at new places because I will not be sure of what I might buy and where to put it. Now, I believe that I have solved that problem now I will have a place for stuff and a place for my helmet.
This new Viking Century Tail Bag is an important addition for my bike and one that I will need when I get back into scuba diving. Yes, I said scuba diving, when we move from North Dakota we will be going to Hurlburt Field AFB on the Emerald Coast. So, I will need a place to put the following items on my bike;
- My BCD (Buoyancy Compensating Devise)
- My 1st and 2nd Stage and octopus
- My Fins
- My mask, snorkel and wetsuit
I believe between my tail bag and saddle bags I should have enough room to bring my bike to the dive shop and have all my equipment.

I believe that time will tell whether or not this is a great tail bag. The bag should serve me well and because of the hard shell and the black leather it just makes it look that much better.
And some of you out there like me are probably thinking that it will not match their bike because it is black, but i must disagree with you. I have a 2016 White Scout Sixty with Tan Saddlebags and I believe that it being black flows better with my bike.
So, I recommend this bag to anyone looking for a strong high quality motorcycle tail bag made of leather that will allow you to go on some long trips with friends or family members. I really love this Viking Motorcycle Tail Bag and recommend it. The price is $169.00 and currently they have 30% off for St Patricks Day Sale
