T-Bags Sportster Bag
Got this bag for my wife to take clothes, running gear and food to work in. She's riding a Triumph America with a solo seat. This would install right on the fender if I wanted, but I installed a rear rack to keep the paint from being touched. You have to play with the provided straps some to get it attached right but once i figured it out all was well and it's very sturdy. Once I figured out the install setup I cut the straps and burned the ends so keep things from flapping around.
The bag sides are semi-ridged so it keeps shape very well. The bottom is soft and contours to what its sitting on. The side pockets are pretty tight and only fit a small wallet, name tag for work, keys and such. Don't plan on sticking much in those. The interior compartment is pretty good sized for a day bag and she's able to fit a complete outfit to change into at work as well as her running clothes and running shoes and dress shoes with it expanded. It takes about 2 mins to install and about a min to get off the bike. The carry handle works well to walk into work with it.

Roomy and Resilient!
Love this bag. I have just been on the road for 6 weeks through California on my iron 883 - had this tailbag and a pair of saddlebags for luggage (I wasn't camping this time#. This bag allowed me some luxuries that I would not have been able to afford - lots of room, the expandable zipper definitely came in handy. I had rain pants & jacket, toiletries, pair of runners, maps and travel hair straighteners # I am a girl after all!) in the main section, batteries, head torch, extra microfibre towel in the top zip, tools, mesh tie down and the rain cover for the bag itself in the external pockets - and still had room to cram in some snacks or an extra pair of socks when needed.
Easy on and off but I adapted the straps so that I could snap them on and and off instead of having to thread them each time. Either way its pretty convenient and low hassle.
Highly recommend this bag for functionality, durablility and versatility.

Great cruiser bag.
I bought this bag for my M50 Boulevard as I didn't want to get saddle bags and take away the look of the bike. This bag has enough space for me to put my lunch, extra gloves, large water bottle, and an extra jacket ( when expanded). I like how it looks on my bike as it keeps the line of the bike. The bag has a curved bottom which fit nicely on the passenger seat of my bike, however to make it easy to take off and on, I ended up using the shoulder straps as the mounting straps so this way I can unclick the bag and carry it with the handle. If I used the straps they provided I would have to undo it every time I took it off my bike and redo it up again, using the shoulder straps was so much easier and its made of the same material as the fastening straps too..
I did use the rain cover a few times and it keep the bad and my contents dry.

Awesome Tail Bag
I purchased this for my Sportster Iron 883 and it fits perfect. The T-Bag Sportster Bag was easy to put on and it came with a shoulder carry strap. I was also shocked as to how much stuff I can put in this thing. I was able to fit a full all weather bike cover, a pair of Oakley L-Frame goggles, kick stand puck, Large Oakley sunglasses case, 1 pair of glove liners, balaclava, the rain cover for the tail bag, a bungee helmet net and a pair of safety glasses in this thing.
