Great item for the price
This tail bag has been a great addition to my riding gear and doesn't change the feel of my ride even when fully loaded. I'm sure there are better items but for this price this is a fantastic item.

Excellent bag for the price
So I am a cheapskate, and wanted something to replace to topcase on my old scooter to carry groceries and small items on my new sportbike...but didn't want to fork out the moolah. The Rapid Transit bag seems the perfect solution for my miserly needs. Plus I got to use my Revzilla cash, so it really was a bargain.

I cannot speak to bag's durability, as I've only been using it for a few weeks, but so far it has held up well fully loaded and bouncing on speed bumps and racing down expressways. Fully loaded, the bungees hold it down very securely, although if the bag is expanded but not completely packed it will sag to one side (just a warning to not expand it unless absolutely necessary).

Installation was not rocket science, but there were no instructions with it, and the install videos I eventually thought to look for on the manufacturer's website mentioned rear anchoring points that do not exist on my bike. So, it took several minutes of trial-and-error and head-scratching to find a workable solution. I finally attached the front hooks of the bungees to the passenger peg mounts and hooked the back ends together underneath the rear fender. This doesn't seem like the most secure setup, but the bungees are far too short to loop around the fender and re-attach to the bag as some videos suggested. Still, it has held securely thus far and detaching the bag to carry with me is effortless.

Despite other reviewers saying it won't hold a laptop, I had no trouble sliding in my 15" Macbook Pro with the bag fully expanded. My one minor beef is that the bag does not really hold its shape (unless you put things in it)--the top does tend to collapse down. This does not affect its performance and would not even be worth a demerit except that it is advertised differently, so it gets a point off for not being completely truthful.

Overall, the bag is large and gets the job done. For the price, I really couldn't ask for more; so if you can put up with the slightly less-than-perfect install (or buy longer bungees) and don't mind your bag looking a bit squished when empty, I wholeheartedly recommend this bag.

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.

Amazing and cheap bag
As a motorcycle commuter I didn't want to use my car to go to work and then go to the gym with all the stuff. So purchased this bag and I can now carry clothes, shoes, sneakers and other stuff, and when I am at the gym I can put my helmet in the bag (bell rs1, huge shell dude). I though it was going to see larger, but when you begin to put things you realize it is pretty large.

Great tail bag
Fits perfectly on my KTM 1190 Adventure. Holds my helmet when expanded, easily fits my mesh jacket when not expanded. Two decent sized zip pockets. Rain cover fits well and did not blow off

Nice tailbag for the price.
I have had this bag for two months now, so far very happy with it. I had another brand tailbag before this and it fell apart after 3 years. This bag seems to more rugged and costs less than the first one. Plenty of room for packing my lunch, jacket etc. for commuting to work. Just have to see how it holds up.

Just the right size
Very secure straps . Big enough for my rain gear , lunch box , winter gloves , and still has enough room for a few more things . Side pockets are great for sunglasses and rain cover storage.

Lots of room.
The bag straps down well and stays in place. It has a lot of room, especially when expanded. I have only had mine a month, but it seems to be holding up well. The plan is now to get the matching saddlebags and hope they are as good.

Good bag for a good price
Nice size, good pockets, easy to install with bungee cords on the bottom and stays where I put it (It can be locked to the bike with the D-rings and a cable lock)
Holds extra visors, jacket liner, and expandable for rain gear. What I want in a tail bag.

Just what I was looking for....
I did a lot of looking around on-line before deciding on this bag and I couldn't be happier with it on the back of my Honda CTX700. I love the shape of it and really wanted side pockets like this has. It holds plenty of stuff and the expandability is great. No comment yet on durability but it seems very well made so I doubt that will be an issue. The rain cover too is very sturdy and fits perfectly and snugly.

i need space for my commute and the description says "water resistant", i hope it can handle light rain. hard cases are expensive.
pedro r on Aug 7, 2016
I just bought a new Yamaha FJ-09 and wanted something for tooling around and day trips. I have a tank bag, but it's in the way/annoying sometimes. I'm shopping for hard cases for touring, but wanted this for when I don't want hard cases on. It says it's easily removable and can fit a full face helmet when expanded.

Needed a new one, my Cortech 2.0 is falling apart. This bag looks like it might hold up better, Can't be any worse than my previous bag.

I Have my Super Tenere original Alum. Top Case in case of long trips, but this case is great for a short trips or movements into my city. Also the Bag is very big & easy to install.

I wanted something that I could easily attach and remove from my Honda PCX scooter, thought it would be big enough to get a box of Krispy Kremes and it was big enough for that, but could not fit a 12 in pizza box.

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,
Josh K
A shopper on Aug 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?

Thanks
Stephen S on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I ride a Honda CTX1300. I really like everything I've read about the rapid transit bag. Do you think it would fit my bike?
A C on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think it is pretty universal. I use it on my road king. It connects using straps to my luggage rack . I have a solo seat and my rack takes the place of the passenger seat that I removed. I like that when not using it it folds down pretty flat
The product is compatible with Motorcycle Honda CB 500X?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes..is compatible and is worth to buy
How easy would it be for someone to steal the bag while say I'm in a grocery store? Is there any ways to secure it in a more permanent way to my bike? I have a '15 CBR300. Thanks guys
Alex B on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When I put this bag on my bike, I put the front hooks under the passenger seat and the back hooks on my passenger pegs. Someone would have to cut the bungee or fiddle with threading the cords back through the bottom. Someone would probably be more keen to unzip the bag and steal the contents.
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.
A shopper on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Will this bag when expanded hold a full face helmet?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will. I can put my modular flip-up helmet up in the bag and zip it shut.
What are the inside dimensions of the main compartment of the Rapid Transit Platoon Expandable Tail Bag?
Anthony A on Aug 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Will this bag fit a Honda CBR500r?
