A “bagger” is a touring motorcycle designed for long-distance rides with luggage storage. Side Street Cycles owner Kent Sweeney said that he was approached by a local motorcycle enthusiast about building a motorcycle that he could ride all day but still be able to handle mountain-type curves with the ease of a sport bike, a request Sweeney called “a tall order.”
