For longer trips I use the Tourmaster Cruiser II luggage. Comes in leather or nylon. You can view it HERE. I have the less expensive nylon one with the detachable barrel bag on top. But just for daily use I use a Cortech tank bag that I strapped to the rear rack. Holds my gloves, glasses, and etc...

I can`t tell from the pictures of these bags how they are made. However I bought a set which look identical to these, about a year ago. They look very sharp, but mine are made from many small scraps of leather which have been sewn together. It is alright as decoration, but is not all that strong.

The shoulder strap on the back pack pulled out the first time I tried to use it. The straps were not sewn to the leather and reinforced. They were only stuck into the seams and held in place by a single pass of the needle and thread. If you are only tying it onto the rack and sissybar on the bike, and carrying it a short distance by the suitcase style handle, it may be ok. If you have to carry it any distance and plan on using it as a back pack, I would pass this one up, unless you can examine it up close.

Just as an update, the Tourmaster Cruiser II luggage set doesn't come in real leather, but a synthetic leather-like material. The nylon one that I have includes padded backpack straps which I've used. Wouldn't go backpacking with it, but it is useful for going short distances carrying the luggage hands-free.

They're made very well and quite sturdy.

Jafrum has some pretty inexpensive leather and synthetic leather loggage rack bags.
