German soft luggage specialists Bags Connection has added a Trolley Bag to its range of innovative motorcycle baggage.

This smart looking piece of kit looks like a conventional trolley bag, with a telescopic handle at one end and integral wheels at the other. It boasts a generous 45-litre capacity and is finished to a very high standard, with the lid, walls and two large external pockets all padded to protect the contents.

However closer inspection reveals that this bag has been designed not only for use on planes and trains, but also to be carried on motorcycles. The telescopic handle slides neatly into a zipped compartment and there are four tie-down style straps to ensure rock steady fit when the bag is attached to a rack or pillion seat. Bags Connection also supply two support straps that may be mounted from the licence plate bracket. Inside the main compartment there are two partitions that can be adjusted to secure a notebook computer (vertical) or to separate shoes from clothes (horizontal). There are even two huge internal waterproof bags, which can be attached to the inner walls with Velcro.

The Trolley Bag is supplied with four mounting straps, two internal waterproof bags, shoulder strap and scratch-resistant film. Retail price is £156.92 including VAT at 17.5%.
