    Hello, I'm practicing at three different locations, and I'd like to be able to use my motorcycle to move around during the summer. Is there a decent gig bag that has nice straps on it, like a heavy-duty camping backpack or similar?

    I have a Stingray 4, so it's on the heavy side. I have a Carvin gig bag, but the straps on it seem very flimsy and I don't even want to take a chance with it.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Sam

    Incase are the best bags going right now, but are pricey.

    Also consider the high-end Levy's bags.

    There are several bags online at www.basscentral.com that are high quality as well.

    Thanks guys! Those incase bags look great. I think the "Tour Bag" is exactly what I need. $200.00 though...Ouch.

    I'm going to give this a few days to justify in my mind...

    Thanks again for the help.

    You're welcome....around here, it's a little over 3 days of gigs to pay for that thing...definitely in the "investment" category.
