Hi,
Can anyone recommend any good touring luggage combo`s for a cheap skate with a 2007 Tiger 1050 who`s planning on the doing the Ireland Coastal road next Easter  :002:

Cheapest and a lot of choices new or second hand for good prices is GIVI stuff
Start with buying the topbox rack with Monokey plate from forum member Legolam https://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/topic,42367.0.html
Next is to decide how big your topbox needs to be...I have a range of boxes from 29 to 52 liters.
Cheap, small and light is the 29-32ltr WL901 topbox and good for short trips. My favourite is the V47 which is only some 20-40 more and used on trips up to 5-6 days. Biggest, heaviest but not most expensive is the 52ltr Trekker and used on trips up to 10 days. My DLM30 box is  :164: most $$  :005:  and mostly used together with my DLM36 panniers.
I think for a second hand V47 and Legolam's rack some 150-175 will do.
But a waterproof 40-60ltr roll bag holds a lot of fresh undies for 50 or less.

I'm looking for luggage at the mo and decided soft. Lighter, cheaper and more likely to protect the bike if you drop it. If you go rackless it also means you can move it from bike to bike and aren't tied to one manufacturer's racks. Lomo do some good stuff at good prices but they seem to have been out of stock for ages https://www.lomo.co.uk/acatalog/Motorcycle-Motorbike-Dry-bags-Accessories.html 

I'm looking at this as we speak (just looking mind) https://moskomoto.eu/collections/rackless-systems/products/reckless-80l. Not exactly cheap but will cost a lot less than top box + panniers + racks and definitely good for more than 1 trip

Next Easter, obviously want o lot of feedback  :008:

Do you have a rear rack?
Will you be riding solo?

Hi,
Thank you all for your comments.. :028:
I will be riding solo and don't have a rear rack.
Been wondering about tyres too... not sure what the coastal road is like?
