This bag is a great fit for my dr650. It's the exact same size as my pro moto billet rack! With a little fiddling it straps down really good and tight. The bag seems well made, looks nice, and holds more than it seems. The instructions are hilarious...but it is easy enough to figure out. (Posted on 7/28/11)
This is my first bag ever, and first for my Triumph Tiger 800. The bag has four straps that nicely attach to the passenger handbars and allow me to easily clip and unclip the the four straps from the bag. So I pack what I need for work in the bag and when I get to work the bag comes off and I carry it in with the nice carrying handle.
Lots of storage for a small bag, plus it expands nicely and has quite a few compartments. The straps stay on my bike even when the bag it not in use but the bag comes with extra straps that clip to those straps so they are blowing around loosely in the wind when you aren't bringing the bag. Make sense? Hope so, as only disappointment was the Japanese instructions. I learned about how best to use this bag by reading online. Havent had chance to test waterproof cover but will soon as I ride on rainy days. (Posted on 6/5/11)
Fits better than the medium I bought in the first place, and as a result I leave it on all the time. I like this bag a lot, secure, never in the way, getting into and on and off is easy and convenient, love the 2 bottle/small thermos holders, and looks great. You can use some of the delrin locks for some low level security. Only prob is not made in the USA, but it should last about forever which is good. (Posted on 2/14/11)
Have had this bag for 3 years now and use it all the time. If it isn't on one bike, it's on the other. Not waterproof, but with silcone spray, it does well enough but still need rain cover. Wish bag had reflective piping. I have the small and can carry what I need, for a 5+ day road trip. (Posted on 10/14/10)
I have both the medium and small moto fiz bags. I have used the small one extensively. For DS riding there is no reason to go anything bigger. I have beat the crap out of it and it has help up fine. Only problem is that it is not waterproof. However, it does come with WP cover. Greatt product five starletts for sure (Posted on 5/22/10)
I can't recommend this bag enough. 9 out of 10 motorcycle thieves agree, including the bastard who stole mine last week. Which is why I'm back at Aerostich buying a new one.
I had this bag for a couple of years doing full-time all-weather Florida commuting (40 miles a day, lots of rain, 30,000 miles on the bag). It spent a lot of time on the miniature rear "seat" of my Speed Triple, and then got to stretch out on the comparatively spacious ZX-14 seat. Fits great on both bikes.
Plenty enough space for rain/winter gear, a bike lock, tools, 2 water bottles and a few groceries.
It has been personally tested to hold fast even at umm.... spirited speeds.
Downside is that it isn't waterproof, but the rain cover does its job well. Pro tip: spray it with fabric waterproofer like they sell for Jeep seats, and the bag contents will stay dry enough in rain showers. (Still need the cover for prolonged rain riding) (Posted on 1/6/10)
