Saddlemen Sport Tunnel Bag
Great commuter bag
I bought this as a commuter bag and it works great. It was really easy to install after watching an installation video on J&P cycles website. My only complaint would be that the Velcro pad doesn't secure very well to the bike because of some slop where the mounting straps go through the pad loops. But being the DIY'er that I am, I glued the straps to the Velcro pad and that secured it up nicely. I'm very happy with the bag's performance, fit, finish, and looks. It seems very well built, but only time will tell how well it holds up. I like it for a day bag, and also like the D-rings that allow you to strap other luggage to it for longer trips. Very satisfied so far.

I have this bag on my VMAX for over a year now and it works great.. Took a bit of thinking on strapping it down.. I have the Star VMAX Sissy bar which encroaches a bit on the useable space in the bag.. I ended up strapping the back of the bag to the Star rear carrier which worked better then tying to the sissy bar..
Overall a very nice well made bag and not so high you can't throw your leg over it getting on and off which is fantastic.. I can't bring myself to doing the 1 legged hop getting on and off..

I commute on my bike, so I needed a bag big enough to hold my laptop bag and a purse, that would also look good on my Triumph Street Triple. This one does the trick with room to spare!
There are things that could be improved, but they certainly aren't deal breakers. For example, there's no good place to clip on a shoulder strap, so I'll be leaving it on the bike. Given that, it would be good if there was an easy way to lock the bag to the bike.

Great addition to my bike
Easy install (hardest part was finding the bolts that hold on my seat). Easy to remove and reinstall when you get to your destination, no tools needed. Fits my pillion perfectly.
It's just the right size for a trip to the bookstore or the library. It will hold a change of clothes or a small picnic lunch.
This is going to be very useful this Summer.

For that finishing touch
Saddleman Tail Bag gave the bike the finishing touch I was looking for . Not only is the bag functional , but it gives the bike a look all its own ,
Would highly recommend to anyone one looking for additional storage along with the custom look it brings.

Fitment on Harley Davidson VROD
Purchased this for my 2013 Harley Davidson VROD Muscle. Unlike the Vrod Night Rod, this has a larger rear fender with frenched in LED lights integrated. The smaller unit (TS1450R) was not wide enough to fit over rear seat/rear pillion. The larger unit (TS1620R) was too wide which caused it to not hug the seat/rear pillion as well making serious concerns on it's stability while cruising down the road.

Commuter Bag for a ZX14
As the title sugest I am using this a commuter bag for a ZX14. My daily trip is around 35 miles and in the hot Texas sun wearing a uniform under a coat is a no go. This bag gives me the perfect place to put my uniform and almost anything else I would like to carry. Now that being said, I did purchase the large bag for my bike, and it fit very well. I does rub the fenders, so I had to add some protective tape to keep it from slowly eating them away, but all in all a great fit. The mounting system is a little odd to figure out and it is left up to you to find the best way to stabilize the bag. For example, I used the exhaust mounts to route the straps that stabilize the bag left to right. I am sure the main mount would hold the bag on the bike but I dont like the idea of it moving side to side, hence the straps to stabilize.
Here is the short of it. Great bag, Excellent quality, a lot of room in the larger one, with the only problem being having to customize how to stabilize the bag. Lets face it though, there are to many kinds of bikes to make a strap kit for each one.
