Strapping sh*t to the back

I love riding to work, but I have to take a bunch of bags with me: gym bag, books, etc. It either means one large, very gay looking backpack, or strapping it somehow to the backseat. Any ideas??

Hi I have a GSX R 750 K8 & had Luggage Locker make me a bag that fits on the rear seat. Looks good & holds lots. www.luggagelocker.com
You pick the color & extras. Great for travel also.

I use my bookbag when I ride to work, but also use a spider strap to strap it to the rear.

Love our Fieldsheer tail bag and they make soft sporty saddlebags too. The tail bag was cheap through Bike Bandit. Here's the link to it. Been touring with us a couple thousand miles now and is a daily riding bag too, works AWESOME and doesn't fuck with your aerodynamic bubble like a tank bag does.

ogio makes some really spacious but comfortable backpacks to ride with. easier on the plastics than a lot of the tank/tail bags.
