Motorcycle Leather Bag Types


Motorcycle bags attach to different parts of your bike. We offer a few different styles, including:

  • Saddlebags: Motorcycle saddlebags hang off the rear of the bike and are typically the largest type of motorcycle luggage. They give you plenty of space and fit easily over the back of the bike.
  • Sissy bar luggage bags: Motorcycle sissy bar bags attach to the sissy bar. They stack exceptionally well and serve as back support and padding for the sissy bar.
  • Windshield bags: These attach to the windshield and provide easy access to your materials. Windshield bags are a great place to store small items such as your license, insurance, and small replacement parts.
  • Sling and thigh bags: These bags attach to your leg and are easy to ride with and bring around town with you. We carry different sizes so you can choose how much room you need.

We carry all of these styles and more in our Bike Bags & Luggage + collection, offering a range of functional looks for your time on the road.

Let's break it down for you...

When it comes to motorcycle accessories, leather bags are a must-have for any rider. Not only do they add a touch of style to your bike, but they also provide a practical solution for carrying your belongings on the road. There are several types of leather motorcycle bags available, each with its own unique features and benefits.

1. Saddlebags

Saddlebags are the most popular type of leather motorcycle bags. They are designed to be attached to the sides of the bike, just above the rear wheel. Saddlebags come in various sizes and styles, offering ample storage space for your essentials. Whether you need to carry your wallet, phone, or even a change of clothes, saddlebags have got you covered.

2. Tool Bags

Tool bags are a practical choice for riders who need to carry tools or other small items. These bags are typically smaller in size and can be attached to the front forks or handlebars of the motorcycle. Tool bags are often made from durable leather and feature multiple compartments to keep your tools organized and easily accessible.

3. Tank Bags

Tank bags are designed to be attached to the top of the fuel tank, providing easy access to your belongings while riding. These bags are ideal for storing items that you need to reach quickly, such as your phone, map, or sunglasses. Tank bags are available in different sizes and styles, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs.

4. Tail Bags

Tail bags, also known as tail packs, are a versatile option for motorcycle riders. These bags can be attached to the rear seat or luggage rack of the bike, offering additional storage space. Tail bags are perfect for carrying larger items, such as a change of clothes, camping gear, or groceries. They are often expandable, allowing you to adjust the size according to your needs.

5. Roll Bags

Roll bags, also called barrel bags, are a compact and stylish choice for riders who prefer a minimalist design. These bags are cylindrical in shape and can be attached to the rear seat or luggage rack. Roll bags are perfect for carrying small items, such as a spare t-shirt, water bottle, or camera. They are easy to install and remove, making them a convenient option for short trips.

Leather motorcycle bags come in various types and styles, catering to the different needs of riders. Whether you prefer the classic look of saddlebags or the compact design of roll bags, there is a leather bag out there that will suit your style and provide the storage space you need on the road
