Everything you’ll want to carry (clothing, tent, food and camping gear), fits neatly within these detailed and cavernous seat bags. Outside there’s a variety of strap systems designed to secure foam sleeping pads and the like. Across the top, D rings laced with mini-bungees are arranged to hold sweaters, road guides, and things you want to keep within immediate reach.
Each end on the medium and large opens for direct loading and inside access. For extra capacity, both ends also expand with gusseted zippers. The medium and large bags also have a removable zippered belt pack attached to one end, and all three have an insulated water bottle holster right where you can reach it. There’s retro-reflective areas, a versatile, secure and fast strap-on mounting system, and useful compression straps so your stuff won’t get bounced around. Not waterproof, but an included raincover stores inside a dedicated compartment.
All of this technology is beautifully sewn with top quality coated nylon fabrics, webbing and other materials. (By a clever optical illusion, this bag won’t look big when mounted on your bike.) The Camping Seat Bag is the world’s most advanced motorcycle pack. It’s an armed F-16 in a field of Cessnas.
Small is black/grey, 8" Top to Bottom × 12" Front to Back ×11.5" Side to Side/16" expanded. Medium is black, 12" Top to Bottom × 12" Front to Back × 15.5" Side to Side/22" expanded.

- Small MotoFizz Camping Seat Bag #9033Review by James
I have had the Small MotoFizz Camping Seat Bag #9033 since the early 90's. I have just purchased a second one as a backup because I have found it invaluable and would not want to be without one. I have tried dozens of bags over the decades. This bag is hands down the absolute finest designed and best made motorcycle accessory I have ever purchased.

- Almost perfectReview by Rosco
This is a great bag. It's expandable, and holds overflow gear on top when needed.
I have only a couple of issues with it. First, the elastic cord on top is weak. I eventually removed mine and use the D-rings as attachment points.
The second issue is with the rain cover: It doesn't attach securely. A friend of mine lost his on a ride. I use a large cargo net to hold mine in place when it rains.

- Small MotoFizz is perfect!Review by Rod
- This bag was for my wife. We ordered another bag from someone else and ended up returning it when my wife saw the features of the small MotoFizz online at Aerostich. We got it fast and she is thrilled with the quality construction, features, size, flexible compartments and attachment straps. Great for day trips or hauling her stuff to work. Well worth the cost!

- Good fit. Nice bag.Review by AL
- I bought this bag based on the dimensions of the cargo plate on my BMW R1200RT...perfect fit. It is a nice bag but a little over-priced. For the price, a photocopy of the instructions in English would have been nice. The instructions & features literature enclosed is in Japanese. (You will have to view the PDF file on this website to see it in English.) Otherwise, I like the bag fine. ONE IMPROVEMENT THIS BAG NEEDS IS A NON-SLIP NEOPRENE PAD TO PROTECT PAINT AND TO PREVENT THE BAG FROM SLIDING WHEN USED AS A TAIL BAG. THIS WOULD ADD TO ITS VERSATILITY AND OFFER BETTER PROTECTION TO YOUR MACHINE'S FINISH. (Posted on 6/8/13)
- Perfect everyday bag for a TWReview by suncamper
I found the Small MotoFizz seat bag to be the perfect fit on the cyclerack for everyday use on my Yamaha TW200. The price is right for a very versatile bag and its quality. I would recommend everyone to consider this bag.
This was my first purchase from Aerostich and I know it will not be my last. (Posted on 5/29/13)
- Love this bag!Review by Chris
I'm so pleased w/ the small bag. It fits nicely & securely on the behind-the-seat rack on my '12 KLR, yet unclips easily when I need to remove it.
Included rain cover a nice touch. (Posted on 12/10/12)
- Junior is GoodReview by Richard
- I have used the large for several years, and was not disappointed in the small version, at all. The large was on the back of my Road King for over 50,000 miles. I intend to have this on the back of my Yamaha Super Tenere for the same adventures. (Posted on 8/21/12)
- Nice bag, perfect fit.Review by kawigirlZee
I love this bag. It fits the back rack on a KLR perfectly. It holds plenty of things and I still have room for more. It is great quality, and is so easy to attach, and it holds to the bike like its glued on. ( even in very stong winds at high speed)
I have not been out in the rain yet, or tried the rain fly which was the only real issue of concern i had before buying. I have looked the fly over and it seems to be good quality so i guess time will tell. Overall i really like this bag and am glad i bought it. (Posted on 4/5/12)
- Best tail bag yetReview by Afry
Really like this bag, I've had 3 others but this is the most well thought out. Mounts very secure for dual sport/off road use. Only complaint is it's not waterproof but I knew that before ordering. I live in San Diego area so that's not a big deal but it may be in other parts of the country.
Not the same quality as a Wolfman as far as material goes but it seems up to the task and the design is far better than anything else out there. (Posted on 3/28/12)
- Perfect!Review by Strapping Lad
I haven't made any long trips yet, but I have plans to take the bag up to Yosemite for a week this summer. So far I've used it around town when running errands and grocery shopping. Last week I was able to fit $40 with of groceries into this bad boy. We're talkin meat, a baguette loaf (had to eat some to fit it in) all sorts of oddly shaped veggies, etc. Just a bunch or random stuff I needed. Expanded the sides and stuffed it all in there. I'm sure I could fit more if I was being more precise about packing but I wasn't concerned at the time.
Fit and finish is great and the MotoFizz slogan just cracks me up. "Turns on every rider" Being that it is a Japanese company, it was a bit disappointing when the label on the inside said "Made in China." Maybe I should have got a Wolfman bag???
I ride a Triumph Legend 900 with a Thruxton seat and this bag fits perfectly on the rear. (Posted on 1/18/12)
- Good seat bag in front of the Givi trunkReview by Brodie
I bought one for my FJR last summer to go camping with. I had a Bags Connection tail bag which was way too big for the rear seat, it overhung the bike's hard saddle bags which made getting into them a pain. This small Motofiz bag was perfect, I had unrestricted access to the side bags. I was able to fit my 3 man tent, and my thick self inflating ground mat under this seat bag and the strap system held everything in place. The height of the "tower" fit just under the hinge on my Givi trunk and did not interfere with it's opening.
This bag has several D-rings and straps to hang your hang your odd bits & stuff, and 2 large side pouches. The D-rings on the top flap are integrated with the reinforcement straps closing the top of the bag. I attached a pair of Rok Straps to these and securely lashed down my sleeping bag/dry sack, yet was able to gain easy entry due to the nylon quick buckles. My left saddle bag fit my clothes, right saddle bag for bike things, which left the trunk available for my hat or groceries or what not.
This bag took care of my camping items. When I arrived at my campsite, removal was 4 quick clips easy and I had all I needed to set up. I'm tickled with how well it worked, it was just the right size.

- A Good FitReview by sly one
I purchased this bag for two reasons. The first is that I was not happy with several other rack bags that I have used and wanted to try something better. The second was that I had planned a 5-day trip from Denver to sight see in South Dakota.
I really like the bag and it worked well, once I decided the best way to anchor it to rack on the back of my H-D Fat Bob. The mounting belt system seemed a little much for my applications, so I opted not to use it. I ended up using 4-cable ties. I ran one through the male ends of the buckles and then around the outside bars on the rack at each corner of the bag. Once they were cinched down, the bag was securely attached and travel was no problem.
I found the bag to be a little small, even with the ends expanded for the 5-day trip. I may end up buying a second small bag where I will have plenty of room for long trips. I think that I will be able to mount the second bag to the passenger seat when I need the extra capacity.
The single bag works great for day trips and long weekend trips around home. I highly recommend it! (Posted on 10/10/11)
- PerfectReview by stinkmitten
- I got this bag last week and immediately took it on a 2800 mile shakedown trip to the Indy MotoGP. I was concerned that it might not be secure enough but it was great and held plenty of stuff with room for swag on the return trip. I almost bought the next larger size, but this one fit just right on the radio rack of my Police model Roadking. (Posted on 8/31/11)
- Small Motofizz seat bagReview by PeterC
- This bag is a lot bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. It seems to be extremely well made, and it's the perfect size and shape to serve as a backrest on my Vespa GTS 250. I leave my rain suit in it, and there's still plenty of room for groceries and other stuff. My only mistake was not buying the seat hooks at the same time as I bought the bag (found out about them a few days after I ordered); the seat hooks make attaching the bag even easier.

- The small bag that just keeps on giving... Review by macmovieman
Its been a little while since I commented on one of these touring bags so I thought I would share my experiences. I have owned the large Motofizz for a few years now and love how much these bags can hold. They are built from the ground up to be mounted to your motorcycle or scooter. They are not cheap and they are built in Japan and made of very high quality materials. They have straps to secure to all 4 corners of the bag and the straps can be attached to the chrome railing on the side and back of your scooter. I hope I took some good enough photos for you to see them given it was a bit dark in the garage and I was using my iPhone.
It seems to use up exactly enough room to mount where a passengers backside would be and gives the rider lower back support if you remember to turn it around with the Motofizz label pointing to the back. The bag is made to be accessible from the side which quickly zips and unzips once you release the strap. You can also get to it from the top if you prefer and there is a net that will hold anything from a full sized helmet to some camping gear. The bag is really made for a rider who also likes to camp but I have found them useful in many other ways. In the large bag it will swallow up a 2.5 gallons of gas with all of my gear but this small could be good for anything from carrying your workout gear to extra helmets and jackets/gloves ect...
The large bag will run you $197 and is worth every single penny if you need to carry that much gear. The medium bag is $177 and is really the most functional bag if you are going to have one for your scooter and a motorcycle. It will fit the bike perfectly but might be too big on the scooter. The small costs $147 and will fit your scooter like a glove and remember there are expandable side on each of these that zip out to give you even more room. Perfect for those rides where you want to bring home some goodies for your loved ones.
Well I could ramble on all day about the functionality of these bags but I am sure you would prefer to see the photos. I am someone who loves to find things that are functional and usable on a daily basis. Almost forgot to mention it only takes seconds to un-clip the bag from the straps and turn it into a backpack or a shoulder bag and then re-clip it on when you come back. I know I will be using the coffee mug holder on both sides too for some warm coffee on the way to the office. Here is a link to the only place I can see to buy these bags in the states.
Here is a shot of the small on our Vespa. http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/1104/img0189wf.jpg (Posted on 8/2/11)
- great for my Dr650Review by catfishdan
- This bag is a great fit for my dr650. It's the exact same size as my pro moto billet rack! With a little fiddling it straps down really good and tight. The bag seems well made, looks nice, and holds more than it seems. The instructions are hilarious...but it is easy enough to figure out. (Posted on 7/28/11)
- Not cheap but great bag with lots of storageReview by NewWorldMan
This is my first bag ever, and first for my Triumph Tiger 800. The bag has four straps that nicely attach to the passenger handbars and allow me to easily clip and unclip the the four straps from the bag. So I pack what I need for work in the bag and when I get to work the bag comes off and I carry it in with the nice carrying handle.
Lots of storage for a small bag, plus it expands nicely and has quite a few compartments. The straps stay on my bike even when the bag it not in use but the bag comes with extra straps that clip to those straps so they are blowing around loosely in the wind when you aren't bringing the bag. Make sense? Hope so, as only disappointment was the Japanese instructions. I learned about how best to use this bag by reading online. Havent had chance to test waterproof cover but will soon as I ride on rainy days. (Posted on 6/5/11)
- great on my BMW F800STReview by Ron
- Fits better than the medium I bought in the first place, and as a result I leave it on all the time. I like this bag a lot, secure, never in the way, getting into and on and off is easy and convenient, love the 2 bottle/small thermos holders, and looks great. You can use some of the delrin locks for some low level security. Only prob is not made in the USA, but it should last about forever which is good. (Posted on 2/14/11)
- Goldilocks !Review by munchmeister
- Goldilocks size! Just right for rain gear, snacks, water bottles... the stuff of necessity for a short ride. It is now on my 1150GS all the time. (Posted on 11/24/10)
- Love it!Review by iammissing
- Have had this bag for 3 years now and use it all the time. If it isn't on one bike, it's on the other. Not waterproof, but with silcone spray, it does well enough but still need rain cover. Wish bag had reflective piping. I have the small and can carry what I need, for a 5+ day road trip. (Posted on 10/14/10)
