Cortech Super 2.0 Tail Bag
Great bag! Looks sharp and is priced right.
On my new R Nine T, I thought of buying the very expensve BMW tail bag but decided to see what else was avaiable first. I needed something to make my bike a good commuter bike and provide me with some storage for rain gear, some clothes, and shoes without looking like I'm going on an expedition in the Sahara. I like my Cortech air mesh jacket and pants so I decided to give their bags a shot.
Bag looks great and appears to be great quality. Good strong nylon and the inside is soft and very red. I got the larger bag and the size is perfect for the dimentions of my bike. Installation was a bit of a pain as the instructions were not very specific. Once I realized that it was a loop-through type system it was quite easy. The bag is made to be quick release but once the straps are tightened you have to release some tension in order to reinstall the bags which could be a pain if you take it on an off a lot. Also, security is nil as there is no way provided to lock the bag.
These minor girpes considered, the bag suits the purpose that I bought it for. If I need additional storage, the matching saddlebags will be my next purchase. The bag looks good and matches my bike very well. Overall, I am very happy with this product and find it a great value.

Great bag holds just enough
I have had this bag for about 3 months and 2k. I have a bmw s1000r that has no storage this bag is small enough so I can swing my leg over the bike and not hit the bag. The bag will hold my wallet,phone, face shield cleaner, cloth, extra gloves, my jacket liner(vest) and a bottled water, it's been perfect.

Great tail... for the right bike
Love the bag, but there just doesn't appear to be a secure way to attach it to my bike (2013 Honda CB1100) unless my Hepco & Becker saddlebag mounts are in place.

tailbag/pillion bag for a Rebel
Just wanted to share with any potential Rebel owners looking for some extra storage. Did a bit of reworking with the straps but was able to snugly attach the Cortech to the rear passenger seat by crisscrossing the straps under the seat; no anchor points elsewhere on the bike. Fits nice, good complement to the shape and style of my Rebel, pretty decent storage...extra shirt, shorts, low sneakers. Also good for a small shopping trip to auto shop, pharmacy, etc.
Coming up with the current strap situation was time-consuming but now am very pleased with the purchase.

A well-made very functional tail bag
This bag together with the super 2.0 saddle bags makes a great commuter set. They all fit on my Honda CB500X with no mods to the bike. This means a complete set of luggage for less than the supports for hard bags. The bags are made very well and the expansion feature is truly useful...so buy the large bag! I use two cable locks to secure the saddle bags and tail bag to the grab rails and these double as helmet locks too. I can commute to work, go to the gym and bring home some groceries all in one trip!

Really Like this Bag
Excellent tail bag. I've used this bag for 3 months. The durability and quality are excellent. The bag has been out in the rain on the bike multiple times. It stands up every time. Although I don't leave anything in it overnight. But after a day or two, the inside is dry. Installation was not that difficult. Tied the front two straps to the passenger pegs, and the back straps I clipped together secured under the passenger seat.
The only con is that it does not have holes in the zipper to latch a padlock onto.

Exactly what I was looking for.
I wanted just a little storage for gloves, sunglasses, etc
Had saddle bags on another bike I just traded in. Never really used them and so I thought a tail bag would be better. Love it!

Great Addition to FZ6R
Adding this tail bag to the Cortech saddle bags really completes the look and adds a good amount of storage. It's rare that I ride two up, but it's a quick removal if needed.
