300F for touring, luggage racks?

Anyone knows which cases would fit the 300F? (Side and rear if available).
Also, my GF is not happy about not having a back support. Is there perhaps a small passenger seat pillow available, with a little wedge on the end, so she feels more secure?



Would you consider a 300F as a touring bike?

I think that all depends on what you define as touring. I am sure this bike can take you from coast to coast with luggage no problem, but it aint no goldwing.

As for bags, I personally use this:
Amazon.com: Nelson-Rigg (CL-1060) Black Sport Tail/Seat Bag: Automotive Amazon.com: Nelson-Rigg (CL-1060) Black Sport Tail/Seat Bag: Automotive

There is also a larger version as well as saddle bags.

The $65 seems like a nice price to me!
Anyone tried hard cases?

The soft bags are more or less universal while the hard bags require bike specific mounting brackets. Here is an example: Givi E21 Monokey Side Cases - RevZilla
this is the cheapest I saw. They don't claim to be waterproof and could possible be made from normal cheap plastic. So in a situation where you have to lay your bike down, this could potentially shatter. The good ones are ~500$

and mounting hardware: Givi PLR532 Rapid Release Side Case Racks Suzuki V-Strom DL650 2004-2011 [Blemished - Very Good] - RevZilla note: these do not fit the cbr300, just an example. Which brings me to my next point. If you can't find a bracket that fits your bike, gotta get handy with a welder.

My point being, hard cases tend to be a lot more effort and money that you really have to consider if it is worth it for your style of Touring.

Yeah, but they do look good on a touring bike!
Hard cases are almost always more water tight, than soft cases.

The soft bag I mentioned earlier comes with a rain protection layer.

I know it's an old tread, however, I'm hoping that this might help riders who are looking for lockable soft luggage. They are Hepco and Becker rack and cases advertised for CBR300R but they perfectly fit CB as well.

I bought really in the past a tank bag and i never loved it as a tank bag. As i saw the price of the Honda bag i tried different configurations and found a good way.

Ixon old tank bag that transform into a backpack. Only use the strap to hold it on passenger seat near driver and at the rear just all the way around the rear fender of the bike. That bag give me plenty of space (3 stage) for rain suit, rain boots lunch bag and counting.

The best point on it is that no one can seat with me now !
Recycling this old tank bag into a great hauler was a good idea without compromising driver space or being in the wind like saddles.

Take care !
