I have the Motofizz medium size bag and love it! About the best designed bag I have seen, and straps on tight, and stays that way. Can't say enough good about it.

I'm thinking of getting one of these. I have other Wolfman stuff and it holds up very well.

Whats wrong with a back box fitted on a rear rack?, its a lot quicker to open the lid than to fasten/unfasten off the rear seat.

i wish i didnt keep falling off. Gen1 fjr 1300

I've had several different seat bags. They're a great way to put that last bunch of stuff on, after you've stuffed the luggage. I've never really had one I didn't like, just choose the right size.

I keep a little auxilliary fuel, an extra jacket and my tire repair kit in mine.

While this type


does not have easy access when on the road, it is totally water proof and attaches easily to the bike. There are several sizes to meet most needs. The way I use these is fill them with items normally carried in the saddle bags or top case. This frees up space in those areas for things you want easier access to when on the road.

I tried a few of the type with zippers and had to deal with some very wet clothing when on the road.

The Touratech is nice but too expensive for me. I have a Cortech that I've had for several years and it works for me.
