Unboxing and review of Tully Tailbags by OzBatts Adventures!
Q: Will TULLY fit my bike?
A: We provide a total of 6 straps per tailbag to help you find the best way to fit Tully on your bike. Tully is happiest on flat, wide seats. However, it's possible to fit Tully on sportbike seats and some rear fenders. You're welcome to use your imagination!
Q: Why is the zipper stiff?
A: Tully is no ordinary tailbag. We've used a waterproof/dustproof zipper with a locking mechanism at the end. Because of this, the zipper may feel stiff for a while. Use the silicone grease provided using the instructions that come with your bag. It will become easier to use over time.
Q: I've strapped it to the bike, but it seems loose. Why?
A: Tully is designed to flex a little on the bottom, but not a whole lot. Depending on the shape of your seat, Tully may feel a bit loose because it has flexed all it can. The G-hooks have spring clips so you know that Tully won't detach from your bike.
Q: Why does the material look bent/wrinkled on the top?
A: Tully is made from marine grade TPU, which is the same materials used in lifeboats. This material is a stiff fabric that is supported by an inner plastic shell. When the tailbags are packed, they might get a few wrinkles here and there. Over time and with use, these wrinkles go away. Stuff the top pocket with soft materials to help this along.
Q: Is TULLY recommended for off-road use?
A: Due to the materials of our anchor points, we don't recommend prolonged off-road use unless you wrap another strap around the bag. In the future, we plan to develop a more robust anchor point that will be suitable for rough terrain.
We riders live for that time in the saddle - whether your ride is open road, twisty fun, or a road less travelled, TULLY will follow you everywhere.
There's more to motorcycle gear than just being on the bike. It's everything in-between, too.
Who wants to spend precious riding time mucking around with messy loose straps, just to get a sip of water? Who's tired of an overly complicated tailbag that is both hard to clean, and hard to look at?
We wanted to design for both purpose and lifestyle when we created TULLY. Named after one of the wettest towns in 'Straya, we created a unique, sleek, functional tailbag that is easy to use, easy to clean, and looks damn good on any bike.
Oh, and they're universal - so swap them between bikes, go up and down sizes, or stack 'em on top of each other. The choice is yours.
When shopping online for new motorcycle gear, it can be easy to be influenced by just the aesthetic of each piece—and forget to consider the size, materials, and functionality.
We want every rider in our community to know that they’re getting the highest quality bags and accessories when shopping for their next road trip bag. So we’ve rounded up some of the best features to look out for when hunting for a waterproof bag.
Made for all seasons and the tightest corners, and designed with rider usability in mind, our Tully Waterproof tailbag is one of Australia’s most innovative luggage sets—and for good reason. Wondering why? Check out our favourite features and what to look out for when shopping online for motorbike bags and gear below.
Instead of leaving your luggage to chance when packing up for your next adventure, we recommend putting in a bit of work to consider all of the options on the market when it comes to motorcycle bags and accessories. Why? Because even the most careful plans can go to waste if you don’t have the proper gear—or can’t access it when needed the most. Worse still—having to forgo critical trip supplies because your bags aren’t waterproof or haven’t been designed to be functionality packed.
Among the top feature we recommend looking out for in a tailbag, we suggest:
We considered each of these when designing our Tully bags to ensure the collection was designed specifically for everyday rider needs. Among the many innovative features we’ve incorporated, there are:

The Tully bag fits well on my Honda repsol cbr250. It is amazingly spacious and best of all it’s waterproof!!
This tailbag is excellently manufactured and thought out; it has an external lid pouch for all your immediate essentials, and internal flap to hold documents and closes off with waterproof zips. The straps hold very tight and have a velcro fastener, so the leftover doesn’t flap around. The feel and design is top class and Amanda’s customer service is outstanding: helpful, flexible, quick and absolutely lovely to deal with!
I think these bags are fantastic, easy to secure on the bike, the shoulder straps and the backpack straps on the larger one are something I was not expecting, bonus. They look very solid and high quality.
I have owned the small Tully for over a year. This purchases adds the medium to the family. Love the piggy-back system. Perfect for a bunch of overnighters coming up. It fits a surprisingly large amount of stuff. Also enjoying being able to take my laptop on the bike so I can pretend to be working when I’m actually riding. Medium is perfect for my MacBook. Never has a drop of water entered. Quality is next level.
Thought I'd add my appreciation to an awesome product. I just rode Perth - Brisbane - Sydney - Melbourne - Adelaide - Perth, 10,220km on all. During this trip I managed to get rained on pretty much every day - including 250mm in one night near Broken Hill, and the second '100 year' flooding event near Lismore. At least three days were continuous, constant, downpour. I'd trusted my DSLR gear to the Tully tailbag, and hung it off my larger Motech luggage. It rained so much the water eventually got into one of my old bike's carbies near Orange, it got into the tacho, fogged it up and broke the gears, it also made it past the outer layers of the very expensive Motech luggage. But not one drop got into my camera gear, safe inside the Tully tailbag. This thing is more waterproof than a frog's proverbial. As other's have mentioned, the zipper is a bit stiff even when you've lubed it. But that's what makes it waterproof and if you've got enough wrist strength to twist a throttle, I'm sure you can manage a zipper.
In summary, the Tully tailbag kept water out where other high-end luggage didn't. The fastener systems are well thought out and make attaching it to just about anything simple. Superb product. Can't recommend highly enough.
