UBag 8 Motorcycle Saddlebag

The Ubag 8 is a rugged soft luggage motorcycle saddle bag designed to fit larger 800-990cc adventure bikes such as the KTM950-990, Honda Africa Twin etc.  It also fits well on smaller bikes that have wider rear ends such as the Kawasaki KLR650 or BMW650GS.

The Ubag 8 Saddlebag straps straight onto most bikes without the need for frames or racks.

    1. Hi Richard

      Yes the Ubag 8 will fit the GS800. Here are some photos of an early prototype on a GS800.

      You will see that the prototype still has the cambuckles below the “legs” of the bag. Those were removed in the final design because they were too close to the plastic panels on bikes like the 800.

      Please post here if you have any more questions.

      Regards
