Compact or Large saddlebags?

First things first: understanding what capacity fits our needs. A compact bag surely is the best option for urban rides and small rides. When it come to raod trips, even small ones, things change: it’s large bags territory.  A good compromise is represented by those bags which are in between categories. Bags that, if used in sets, have all the traits of a single large bag with a look more similar to the smooth compact ones. Let’s see a couple of examples: Paco is something every modern urban adventurer desires: a robust and timeless bag capable of storing everything a 2020 biker needs. Tomahawk is synonym of pure personality. It has nothing more than everything you need. Designed for Scout® Bobber models, this bag is the perfect companion for riders who enjoy daily rides. Cherokee is an evergreen that carries the heritage of the good old days, when rock revolution and motorcycle culture laid down the path we are riding on today. Last but not least, Cheyenne, all Ends Cuoio experience concentrated in a functional and versatile bag. Ideal for either road trips or daily rides, Cheyenne is the ultimate leather bag for all Indian® Scout® Bobber models.
