A Note from the Designer
Dear Bike Riders,

      Thanks for checking out my Lazy Rider Cycle Bag. I know you would enjoy the bag as much as I have. Having owned a touring bike for a couple of years, I came to enjoy certain comforts while riding. However, the call of the wild enticed me to buy a Dyna Wide Glide. While I certainly enjoy the "zip" and "pizzazz" of my cruiser bike, I quickly began to miss the storage space capacity plus the "ole" backrest that was part of my touring bike. My aging aching back really began to give me misery on rides of more than a hundred miles. I checked out all the options and found such things as a sleeping bag or a "stuffed" T-bag for a backrest was unsatisfactory.

      The only current solution was to buy a custom seat with a backrest for around five hundred dollars. That would take care of the backrest, but what about additional storage which is minimal on a cruiser bike ? A long and painful trip to Sturgis really induced me to get on the ball and develop a better system. I worked diligently for over a year on this project. There were many trials and errors, but my goal was to come up with a rigid, non-sagging, and comfortable backrest with some storage capacity while maintaining a "sleek and cool" profile. The final results are what you now see. I have had numerous comments from riders stating," they thought the bag was factory equipment because it looked so natural on the bike."
Lazy Rider Cycle Bag       Well, I can now go to the store for "Mama" on my cruiser bike. Items such as bread, potato chips, eggs and cookies fit nicely in my bag and I don't have to worry about squashing them like I did when using saddle bags. Too, there is ample storage space for my jacket, hat, and gloves while cruising around town. With a little care I can pack an extra pair of jeans, a couple of T-shirts, two pair shorts, two set socks and still have room for my shaving gear kit. That's all I need for a 3-day weekend trip . . . great! Due to the complete upper and lower back supporting system of the Lazy Rider bag, the back pains due to stress and strain are now gone. Finally, I can now truly enjoy those longer trips.
      A word of caution. When anchoring the bag to your bike with the bungee cords, pull the straps downward in as vertical a position as possible. Also, turn the hooks on the bungee cord outward and this will prevent them from going into the material.

Enjoy your bag and ride safely,

Don "Lazy Rider" Hood
