In 1986, Bruce Armstrong convinced his wife that riding an XL500 Honda from Seattle to Alaska would be a good idea. He used Chase Harper ET4100 saddlebags, a 1501 Eurosport tank bag and a number plate bag, but still found himself needing a place to stow tent, sleeping bag and sleeping mats. John Chase made a custom tail trunk bag that exactly accommodated these items. Upon returning (and his wife saying that she was never going touring on a d/p bike again), he found himself using his now-scruffy Alaska bag on a wide variety of motorcycles, sometimes re-packed with rain gear, his Aerostitch suit or empty - "just in case". Now well tested, Chase Harper is re-creating his original Alaska Bag in 2001 as the Chase Harper B-Alaska Bag.
Dual sport, sport, touring, cruiser, or ATV, the B-Alaska Bag can easily be installed on any motorcycle, used as a n airline carry-on or helmet bag. A soft-side bag, it fits all racks or rear seats and the compression straps make certain the bag is secure and doesn't flap in the win. The B-Alaska Bag is extremely simple, having no internal stiffeners or dividers, no external pockets, no reflective panels. It is cheap to buy and easy to stow when not in use.
