Throwing your gear in a bag, strapping it to the bike and going wherever the Sat Nav takes you is sometimes what motorcycling is all about. For those spontaneous adventures, Givi offers a range of casual luggage that leaves you free to explore without the restriction of panniers and top boxes.

The 100% waterproof TW01 holdall and TW02 roll bag are perfect travel accessories for a relaxed biking trip. Both items are constructed from lightweight TPU abrasion-resistant material designed to withstand temperatures from +70 to -45ºC and heat-sealed to ensure complete impermeability. The bags fit to the back of a motorcycle or scooter via two tubular elastic bands, which are included in the price.

The TW01 holdall offers 40L capacity and features padded handles and a detachable shoulder strap. The TW02 is a 30L army-style roll bag with a padded underside, padded handles and detachable shoulder strap. Both feature reflective inserts for increased safety on the bike. The TW01 (SRP £57.48) and the TW02 (SRP £46.68) come in black with stylish Givi graphics.

For extra luggage space add the T487 rucksack – part of the Givi Xstream range. The robust 1000 Cordura rucksack features multiple pockets, each with waterproof zippers, and an extendable main section taking the capacity from 24 to 32L. A front pocket on the belt and shoulder area acts as a “glove compartment” allowing for easy access to essential smaller items such as a mobile phone.

An interior pocket expands into a rain cover and a cleverly designed compartment in the bottom of the bag provides a detachable and lockable helmet holder. The ergonomic design includes a padded back section and adjustable, padded shoulder straps. The T487 rucksack is available in black with an SRP of £83.88.

The final piece of essential kit for the journey is the S950 GPS/Smartphone holder . While other GPS holders can hamper hand movement or cause the rider to look outside the natural field of vision, the S950 mounts direct to the tubular handlebars thus eliminating both issues. It can be positioned horizontally or vertically to accommodate various devices and is suitable for the majority of motorcycle and scooter models.

Complete with a rain protection cover, waterproof zip, foam insert and security belt, the S950 offers a stylish and safe solution that is both practical and functional. The SRP including mounting kit is £47.40.

I think that's a pretty cool couple of bags. I love the waterproof tail bag! How appropriate for the British summer, eh?
