Motorcycle Backrest Bag Ideal for Weekend Trips

The Weekender luggage is just the right size


Motorcycle luggage is not what it used to be! Now there are purpose-built backrest bags for just about any excursion we take on our motorcycles, and the Iron Rider Weekender bag by Dowco is one we're excited about right now. Whether we're taking an overnight trip or a long weekend on our bike, the Weekender will manage our storage needs.

The Dowco Weekender motorcycle backrest bag measures 7 x 9 x 13.5 inches.

The bag comes with an integrated sissy bar mounting system that can mount on your luggage rack or on your back seat, so you, as the rider, can lean against it as a backrest. The Weekender features a thermoformed EVA armored large main compartment, with large external pockets on the front and sides of the bag, along with soft-lined pockets for delicate items like sunglasses. The Weekender's carrying capacity is 29 liters, plenty of room to carry just what you need for an overnight or weekend trip on your motorcycle. 

Equipped with integrated straps that convert the bag to a backpack for easy carrying from your bike to your hotel, the Weekender also includes a reinforced carrying handle, water resistant zippers, a rain cover, and internal laptop sleeve. 

The Weekender is finished with reflective piping for added nighttime visibility and safety, abrasion resistant non-slip material on the bottom of the bag. There are also external D-rings for added carrying capacity, a chrome Iron Rider medallion, and the unique stylings of the Iron Rider line, which we’ve featured here on WRN.
