This bag has four velcro straps attached to it available to secure it to your sissy bar. My sissy bar is only 7 inches, so I was only able to use two of the velcro straps. It was not a problem! The straps are heavy duty and I was able to get them super snug. I have a small luggage rack mounted behind my sissy bar, so I placed the bag on the rack. I also tried placing the bag on the passenger seat so I could use it as a back rest, that worked fine too. I used some bungee cords for insurance to make sure the bag stayed in place. I loaded down the four pockets on the side and completely filled the bag. The rain cover is great too, fits over the whole bag and sissy bar with ease. I took a 2,600 mile trip last month using this bag. It worked great.
This is a really nice tank bag; not too big, not too small. I had to use the strap mount because my tank cover is plastic. Works nicely and seems to stay in position in strong crosswinds. The fact that there is space between the bag and the mount works great for me as I can run a power cable in between.
Blew off at speed a few times..other than that- good
I like everything about the bag except for the few times it blew off while riding. It freaked me out because something was hitting me in the chest and when I realized it was the tank bag, my phone was in the map pocket..
I think if the magnets fit better on my bike, it wouldn't be as much of an issue. I ride a Yamaha FJ09 2015. It doesn't even fit my friend's Yamaha FZ8 2013. Everything else about it is nice and I liked that the rain cover was clear so I could still see the map pocket.
I've had this bag for over year, bought it for my Concours 1400 - in one word it is awesome! Design, durability and ease of use are outstanding. More pockets and storage options than you would ever expect in a tank bag of this size. Liked it so much I bought one for a friend - needless to say he was ecstatic. A great tank bag at a great price point.
Very good bags , large enough for weekend trips small enough to use daily. like that I can use just one for daily use.
Friend of mine uses his daily , but leaves it parked outside and faded it within few weeks.
Would and have recommended this to my ridding buds.
