OGIO Rig 9800
The defacto bag for motorcycle travel
Saw a number of high-profile racers using this bag and had to get one for myself. It's excellent. Helmet, suit, and boots... and a few other bits all fit great. Very easy to manage on the go.

Copied from my review on Ogio website:
I use this bag for everything. It's awesome for carrying my wardrobe when I'm working in the field and its great for carrying my riding gear when I just need to move it around. It's been through airports and truck box rides and stair sliding competitions (yes, like on Nitro Circus). This thing is indestructible.
It has a convenient external pocket for wallet, tickets, boarding passes, etc. and a generous amount of different size internal lid pockets for riding jackets, clothes, toiletries, gloves, keys, tools, snacks, even a small laptop if you really wanted to. The large compartment separator works good for putting in a helmet, although I would advise putting your helmet in a helmet bag to avoid dings because the telescopic pull handle goes through the internal compartment.
The compression straps and carrying handles are solid. I don't think you could rip them off if you tried. the sled system is sturdy and the wheels have yet to break on me after a year and a half of almost constant use and abuse.
I have pretty well packed all the basics I would ever need in my life up into this bag and taken it with me everywhere and I couldn't be happier with the product. Cheers, Ogio.

One bag to rule them all...
WARNING: If you pack this bag to max capacity you should expect to pay significant airline excess baggage fees!
I bought this bag after a friend of mine showed up at the airport with his. I ordered mine before we got back from our trip. I've received numerous compliments and inquiries regarding the bag. I've rolled and drug this bag all over the world. Baggage handlers on four continents have tried to kill it... no such luck. This bag will allow you to transport both motorcycle gear and business suits all at once.

Its a bag...
So I bought this product thinking it would be something special and compartmentalized. Something that would make the price worth it... But there isn't much.
In short, the outside of the bad looks and works great! But the inside where all my expensive gear and helmet is basically unpadded, exposed to the wheels and handles for easy scratches, not nearly as well"compartmentalized" as advertised, and for what you get is way too expensive.I would say $150 for this bag is fair...
The helmet compartment is nothing more than a thin fabric with some sort of thin flexible foam that vecros into the side of the bag. The worst part is that the compartment is in the same area as the handle which has tiny metal screws and other plastic so if your helmet is 400+ you'll end up with tiny scratches eventually. There is no visor protection or cover system in the bad either so it to will eventually get scratched up.
As far as compartments...It is lacking big time... My 100 dollar Samsonite suitcase came with more compartments and a carry on bag... For less money you could buy yourself something like that and get it padded by an upholstery shop for another $100...
Finally the good stuff... The walls of the bag are durable and the bag over is well stitched. The wheels look durable and so does the handle.The outside is tough.
To summarize, imagine putting your gear and helmet in a small tank going off roading.. while nothing is going to get in, the rough ride will throw your gear around inside leaving it bruised.

Expensive, but cavernous
When I unpacked the bag from its shipping box, I thought I'd bought a portable garage for my bike - it's that big! But seriously, it easily engulfed my boots, pressure suit, helmet and knee braces in the lower compartment, with plenty of room for other apparel in the other nicely-distributed pockets and compartments. The handle locks telescopes into position nicely and the bag wheels easily and in balance when pulled. Handles and compression straps look plenty rugged and work fine. Although the bag is expensive, it should hold up for a long time.
