Perfect size fits so that my hard bags open with no problem Love the bag. Went through some horrible rain and the rain cover did exactly what it was supposed to...kept things dry. July 20, 2015
Great tail bag The only thing I would change is give it the ability to lock. Outside that, this bag served me well on the way to Florida from Pennsylvania. June 22, 2015
Great bag for the money! Last summer I used this bag when riding my KLR 650 on a Rocky Mtn tour. The water proof cover is a fine feature as I never had wet clothes and it rains every afternoon in the mountains. This summer I will be using it on my WR250R which has the IMMIX cargo rack. They are a perfect fit, as if they were designed with each product in mind. Great product that in my opinion serves it's intended use better than some of the higher priced bags. May 28, 2015
Bag works well, but a bit on the small side. This bag stays in place, and the internal bungee cords work great with the non-slip material on the bottom. The bag barely allows me to fit in my portfolio into it (as for size, think of the old trapper keepers). I would be hard pressed to carry my 15" laptop, but my 12" laptop would have no problem. Despite the limitation of size, it is still a great product for carrying stuff around. March 9, 2015
Great bag Holds a lot of gear. I use it to keep rain gear, tool bag, straps, first aid kit, jacket liner and more. The expand ability is great for holding more things. Made to be strong and durable. Easy to install and remove. January 5, 2015
Great Sport Bike Storage With no storage, and limited mounting options on my Tuono, I had to find something I could afford, with enough flexibility for my needs. The rapid transit tail bag is almost perfect. It will carry an extra shield, jacket liner, and extra pair of gloves with ease. I could do a two day trip with this I think, but I haven't tried to see how much I can cram in it yet. Mounting is solid. The bungees are long enough for any application I can imagine. The quality seems good, but not really enough miles to know for sure. January 1, 2015
Exactly as it should be This is a no-frills bag. It does exactly what it should do. Easy to secure with a 4-point bungee. Comes with a rain cover. Expandable. The side pockets are big. I just took it on a 9-day, 2800 mile adventure and it was a very good performer. See photo for how it looks on my bike. August 6, 2014
Great bag so far Very nice bag, easy to install, great tight fit and lots of room for storage July 21, 2014

A shopper asked: I see in the picture that the top(possibly main?) compartment has 2 zippers so they would be able to be locked together. But what is the zipper that goes around the bottom of the bag? I only see a single zipper there. Mar 4, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark K: The zipper is what allows the bag to expand upward allowing larger/bulky objects to be put in. I have mine on a KLR 650 and when riding early morning or late nights the bag is just fine. But when the days warms up and I need to shed some layers of clothing, I unzip the bottom and the bags is big enough to hold our heavy clothes. Mar 4, 2015

Clinton H: The top zippers do not have a security head (like on computer bags where they overlap to lock them together). However, the metal pull tabs would allow for a zip-tie or small lock.

The lower zipper is to allow the the bag to expand. It has two full revolutions to allow for two various heights.

RICKY K: When the zipper around the bottom of the bag is unzipped, it allows the the main compartment to expand in height approximately 3 inches. This tail bag is an expanded one. Mar 4, 2015

Cameron C: The single zipper that goes around the bottom of the bag is to expand the bags capacity. It extends the size of the compartment by about two inches. Mar 4, 2015

A shopper asked: I own a kawasaki gpx250 2007 model and want to know whether this bag will fit my bike or not? I am planning on using it to store my jacket and pants when wondering around the mall or other type activities where I do not want to be wearing my protective gear.
Thank you,

Cameron C: Josh, yes this bag should fit very nicely on your ''07 GPX 250. I put it on my '13 Ducati Hypermotard and it fits well. My brother bought the same bag and put it on his '13 Ducati Streetfighter 848 which has a fairly small tail section. As far as what it can hold . . . I have packed it with all of this at one time: Skate shoes. Two extra pairs of riding pants. Enough socks and underwear for a 6 day trip. A clean shirt for every day. Heat out under gear. Jacket liner. Clear helmet shield. Baseball cap. Board shorts. Toiletries. Rainfly. Bike/helmet cleaning supplies. Phone charger. And there is actually a little room to spare!! So you should have no issues there. Hope this helps.

Alan M: You should check the fitment guide. I own a HD Softail Deluxe and I have a luggage rack and fits well on it. If you have a luggage rack it shouldn't be a problem. I have stored my chaps and leather vest in there and they fit find. Love my bag and does a good job for its purpose. Aug 14, 2014

Aaron L: It will fit fit most jackets and pants with some room to spare. To carry around I would use a strap to hook it to. Aug 13, 2014

Stephen S asked: If it only has 2 rather than 4 D Rings s shown in the illustration, where are they located and how do you attach it to a luggage rack or seat?

Eugene M: The D rings are not used for securing the bag to your bike. They are on the end and can be used for attaching perhaps an accessory. The bag is secured to the bike using an additional panel on the bottom of the bag. Straps, or I use bungees, passed between this panel and the bottom then secured to the bike. The long edges close using Velcro. When the straps or bungees are not in use they can be stored in this panel and totally closed using the Velcro. I used this as my primary bag on a 4600 mile 2 week trip last year. I was totally satisfied. It's easy to attach, de attach, it's well made and a bargain for the price. It gets a strong recommendation from me. Aug 6, 2015

Anthony A asked: What are the inside dimensions of the main compartment of the Rapid Transit Platoon Expandable Tail Bag? Aug 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard W: The inside is roughly 11" wide, 17" long and without the unzipped portion, 8" high. It holds a lot more than you may think. The one change I made was ditching the bungy cords that were worthless and went to my neighborhood hardware store and bought some nylon strapping and clips for $2.75 after seeing them for. $27.00 with shipping online. This allowed me to strap down the bag easily and remove it when necessary. I must admit, the bag has become my go to easy storage on the bike and I never take it off. By the way, I ride a K1200RS. I can totally recommend the bag with one reservation, it is shown looking like a stiff bag, it is not, it can collapse very easily. All in all, I am very satisfied. Aug 22, 2014
