OGIO Tail Bag
This Tail Bag Fits So Much
It fits my Macbook air, a few textbooks and a bunch of pens for school. And If I'm not using it for that, it fits a change of clothes with shoes when I go to the gym.
Work great! I've set up the clips to all be mounted under the pillion seat so snapping the bag on/off the bike are a breeze. Just didn't install as well on my other bike with this setup due to asymmetric design of the inner section of the pillion.
The only setback is that it can be a bit difficult to get my leg over the bag full when I want to get off the bike. But that's because I'm short. Nothing against the bag.

Great for day trips (mabe even a couple of days).
The bag itself is fantastic. I sometimes even use it for luggage when I'm not riding. You can fit a ton of gear in it. As far as on the bike ('12 GSXR1000) it works great once it is installed correctly. Now, installation.....I tried several different methods of install (using the seat only, I did not want to route straps to the pass pegs etc) to no avail. What worked for me was removing the passenger strap from my seat and routing the straps under the mounting nuts. Now I can get it TIGHT. The downfall though, when not using the bag, the straps are permanently installed to my seat so they dangle from the bottom of my seat which makes it a pain to put the seat back on when accessing the trunk.

Great little bag
Great for day trips. I throw a couple bottles of water, clear visor, a map or two, and a few small tools in this. It's small enough (and I never ride 2up) that I almost never take it off. Fit and finish is great, expandable enough to fit a full face helmet, and sewn in rain cover with it's own little pouch. I love it.

Highly functional bag and a good price.
I installed this tail bag on my Monster 796. It doesn't come with installation instructions, but I followed somebody else's post and used a caribiner, which worked like a charm. The expands or contracts depending on how much you want to stuff in it. It easily carries my gym clothes, sneakers, work shoes and other items. I fully expect it will carry all I need for a weekend tour. My two minor issues are (1) it can be hard to get my bike's seat to snap back in place with the straps under it; and (2) the flap can hang down and block my brake light so I have to remember to tuck it under. Otherwise, this is a great bag.

I was bouncing back and forth between this and the Kriega tail bag, but I wanted ease of opening and closing and decided I didn't need something that was major water proof so I opted for the Ogio.
It's perfect. I fit my laptop (thinkpad), some gym clothes and sneakers, and can still get some personal items in the top compartment. Ran the straps under the pillion seat and leave the small buckles exposed when the bag is off, but it's real easy to unbuckle on and off and bring with you.
If you don't need a giant bag and aren't considering using it for overnight trips with questionable weather, then this bag is just right. Price was decent too.

This OGIO tail bag perfect for my 2012 Ninja 650
Love this tail bag...fits perfectly on my 2012 Ninja 650. Easily holds change of clothes/shoes for an overnight, packed lunch, several water bottles and more. Expandable zipper handy when you need that bit of extra room. Side pockets and top pocket perfect for retrieving items quickly. Durable, quality product, tough zippers, solid materials. Quick snap buckles allow easy disconnect to take bag with you, My only complaint....could REALLY use a shoulder strap! Excellent value.

Fantastic tail bag for any sport bike weekend tripper.
I was looking for a nicely built, good looking bag that was quick to install/remove.. that would fit 2 days worth of clothes / essentials. Oh, and that was under $100.
I absolutely found it. This is the perfect bag for any sportbike rider wanting to take a weekend trip without the bookbag.
This ogio bag is very sturdy, very spacious and mounts up relatively easily.
With the 'expansion zipper' opened i EASILY fit two days worth of clothes, all my toiletries, a hoodie, flashlight / small tools and a small bottle of water.
The supplied mounting straps worked perfectly for how i intended. I looped all four straps together with a carabiner and clipped the rear seat over top of it, then clipping the bag on top of the rear seat. Worked like a charm. Very strudy, held strong at speeds well over 100mph.
I ride a 600rr, but this would hold true for any bike with a removable rear seat / cowl.
