Had my bike about a week. I need a tank bag and a tail bag to haul mostly rain gear but more if needed. Any ideas which ones fit and look best?

The Kreiga Universal System (US) bags are really nice and go straight on to the loops already provided on the bottom of the seat. They also make a tank bag adapter for their bags as well. The roll-top dry bag design makes them super waterproof, but decreases usability for the same reason - a zipper top is more convenient and far less weather proof. They come in a number of sizes and can be attached to each other to configure for your use case.

I have a US20, 20 litre bag, that I use for my daily commute. It fits a pair of running shoes + gym shorts/shirt/socks + a light weight thermal top with a little bit of room to spare. I find the proportions of this bag to be the most aesthetically pleasing on the tail of the Supersport. The 10 looks like a peanut, and the 30 looks like a touring bag. Probably the right size for rain pants plus a little bit more, not big enough for a two piece rain suit though - you'd want the US30 for that.

The attached photo is the US20 filled to capacity on the back of my bike.

I really like the look of the Kriega stuff and their reviews are the best, so you probably can't go wrong with one of their offerings.

But, for the tank bag, I like the Ducati (made by Givi) Pocket Tank Bag. I've been eyeing one for a while, now.

The Kreiga stuff looks very good and its a nice system that can all work together. I went just for a tank bag and I went with an SW-Motech EVO Engage bag. Uses the ring on the gas cap to attach, much like the Givi bags, which are also quite good.

I use the Kriega US20 tail bag, it clips nicely on the straps under the seat. I put an iPad amongst loads of other stuff, including my packed lunch for work in it. I've been caught in the rain more often than I would like and it's never let water in.
It also comes with a shoulder strap so it's easy to carry off the bike.
Not the cheapest but well worth it.

Do you think the 20 is large enough for a Rain Jacket and Pants?

If the jacket and pants fold up reasonably small then yes. I can put a sweat shirt in there with all the other stuff I carry without a problem. I think I could fit five or six jumpers/sweat shirts in the 20, I hope that gives you an idea of size.

Here is a pic of my Kriega 30. Just got it. No miles with it yet, but its a sturdy little bugger. Lots of room.

My local Cyclegear store (Beaverton, Oregon) allowed me to take the bag to the parking lot to test fit it on the bike and pack it with my test items. They were super friendly and accommodating and had the full range of Kreiga bags on the shelf.

I'm thinking about stopping by cycle gear on the way home to take a look at a US20 and US10. I really don't like wearing a backpack on my commute and am hoping this will be a good solution. usually have a 13" MacBook, a hoodie, lunch, and other small knick knacks.

if the US10 fits my 13" MacBook, i'll probably go with that. i also have a joe rocket manta xl tank bag to carry the other things. btw, the wing magnets on the side of the bag don't sit to well due to the curves and narrowness of the tank, but it's other 3 magnets down the middle are more than strong enough to keep it on there. just in case anyone was wondering.

keep the pictures coming!

I went with the 10/20 Combo. I figured the 10 would be good for sunny days and then add the 20 or just go with the 20 when I might need my rain gear.'

They bad news is it will not arrive until next week and then I will be out of town for 3 weeks.

Will report when I get back.

I stopped by a cycle gear on the way home from work and picked up a US10. Here's some pics of it and the Joe rocket manta tank bag on my bike. This bag is great, holds more than I expected. In the picture, the Kriega is holding my 13" MacBook Pro, my jacket liner, and a pair of jeans. Probably had enough room to stuff a shirt or two.

I had it strapped down on top of my cowl, but I definitely won't be doing that again. the paint could get scratched and the cowl might crack if you strap it down to hard.

My Givi 7L tank bag.

I was really surprised how much can fit in it, and its really practical to put and remove, with a strap included to walk with it.
I think I have the same. It works well for me. Takes everything I usually have squashed into my pockets.

I'm liking the US10. Good choice...but I'm a backpack kinda guy. The US10 is defiantly an option, though.
i usually wear a backpack, but lately i have been using my leather jacket instead of my textile jacket. the backpack just isn't that comfortable with the leather jacket.

i ordered a Kriega US30. Being here in San Diego, I like to be able to take off my jacket, gloves, and helmet and consolidate them in a bag i can lug around off the bike and i HATE having anything on my back. I think it will work out well.
