OGIO Tail Bag
Great tail bag never left me wanting for more
This tail bag was a great option for my FZ6. It was well thought out and installs very cleanly if you take a few extra minutes to plan strap routing and utilize the elastic stays built in to the straps. I prefer tail bags to the tank option.
What I like about this bag:
-The plastic clips allow for simple and rapid attach/detach of the bag.
- Well thought out straps with elastic to secure strap ends.
-The integrated rain fly is a great touch and is ready to keep your bag dry in the event of an unexpected downpour.
- Expansion zipper lets expand for larger loads, and slim down for less cargo.
- Well thought out pockets and compartments for intelligent motorcycle application.
What I don't like:
Nothing... not one complaint or nit-pick.
I highly recommend this tail bag!

Best bag ever
Bought this bag to do a trip to Canada from Long Island New York! It fit a lot more then I thought, even a helmet jacket and gloves from my wife.. The water proof material is super good, on my way back it rain so much for like 200miles and nothing got wet.. If your looking for a bag this is the one!

Great bag for a Triumph Thruxton
The bag fits perfectly on top of the seat cowl. The straps mount nicely on the top shock mounts and around the tail light. I can leave the straps connected and stuff them under the seat when the bag is not attached. Love this thing! Makes commuting to work a joy.

This bag is just the right size. I keep 2 rainsuits in it and there is also room for a wallet, snacks, garage door opener, etc. The zipper pouches on the sides are good for sunglasses and other small items. Haven't needed the rainfly yet. The bag has plenty of room but is not so big that it gets in the way getting on and off the bike. It was easy to install on my Honda CTX700.

No good way to mount on 2012 CBR1000RR.
Good size for commuting back and forth to work. No matter what I tried short of cutting and reinvent it I couldn't get to stay secured. The last time I tried to mount it to go to work the straps ripped from the bag. I had to leave my lunch at home! That was on my fifth time trying to use this bag. From what I have read it requires a lot of modification to work. I just want a bag that straps on tightly in 30 seconds or less and works.

Great for Both Short & Long Trips
Got this tailbag along with a set of saddlebags for a road trip from Green Bay, WI to Muskegon, MI on my '06 CBR600RR. It fit my 13" laptop, iPad, iPhone, a sweatshirt, a jacket, plus other essentials like a flashlight, tools, and Red Bull.
It's also been used for day-to-day commuting, it's lighter and easier to use than my backpack. The rain fly is great for keeping your gear safe, too. My favorite feature is the compression option - unzip it, pack it, zip it back up and it compresses your gear down snug.
It was difficult to mount because the ends of the straps are just loops - my recommendation is to interlock each pair of loops into two continuous straps under the tail. However, the grip on the bottom doesn't work as expected; it kept sliding down on me.

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.
