Generally like the bag. Good storage space for the size and is made very well. Fits and is easier to mount on my rear seat rather than the luggage rack. Need a little better mounting options. A couple of straps to match the male connectors that are already on the bag. Overall good product.
Aside from all the superlatives, my only disappointment is that Saddleman doesn't seem to understand that they should be selling spare mounting units for second bikes. The size is perfect for my commute. The bag holds my briefcase effortlessly.
Found it to be incredibly useful. For my '05 FJR it's the tiniest bit too wide, i.e. my handlebars hit it if I turn them "full". It stays snug. It's completely waterproof (been riding in the pouring rain in British Colombia and Alberta!) and doesn't move in the roughest winds.
Great product, delivered on time. Very pleased with it. Highly suggest it. If it could be improved, it would have a "hole" to snake out an phone cord to my FJR's charger/cigarette lighter.
Takes a little while to dial them in on adjustments, but afterwards they handle well. I made a set of brackets out of angle iron and that helped them stay more in form.
Wanted a set of bags for decades now and finally have them.
For 85 bucks it's a no brainer, these things work well after 2 back to back camping trips of around 500 miles
each, they hold just enough for a three day outing.
Happy with them so far, and no more fiddling with duffles.
The fit was fine, the product great. But Motorcycle Superstore said it would work with the Givi rack I ordered. Nope. The bags don't go with the rack. The bags don't even go with my BIKE. Two hours wasted installing the rack.
The real disappointment are the cheap side-push buckles that don't hold. It would have been so much better if they'd have used a better quality buckle where both side push ears hold under a moderate strain. I had to cut mine off and replace them with metal snap clips, not ideal but at least they hold. This defect affects the Fit, Finish, Durability, Features, and Cost Benefit, so I had to downgrade them all as a result.
