Im planning a 2 day trip And will need shoes and change of clothes etc. My bike has no storage and i hate using back packs as im a chunky fella. What would fit well on the back of the bike? Like strapping a bag to the grab rail or fitting a basic tray style thing. Sorry dont know the correct name.
Backpack is cheap/free option but il be riding for 8hrs ish (6hr ride with breaks)

Cheers

Kriega luggage* is excellent, but pricey. Lomo(?) bags seem to be popular so perhaps worth a look.

*Different sizes available to mix 'n' match, fasten to most bikes with ease.
Loaded for a long tour, Kriega, 1x30l, 2x20l:
