Tour Master Select Saddle Bags
Solid bags for commuting and small trips
I pretty much leave these attached to my '01 SV650S all the time. They're a little on the small side, and are nothing amazing to look at but they ride well and stay in place.
The webbing between the two bags is fully velcro and super adjustable. It's also really wide, so I'm confident they won't be pulling apart, or away from the bags any time soon.
The last set of soft bags I had lasted about 2 years and 40,000 miles or so before they came apart at the seams... The beefier straps, more robust stitching, and smaller size of these tourmasters leads me to suspect I should get a little better life out of these ones. You practically can't "overstuff" these ones, which helps them last longer.
As of this review I've had them for a few months, and maybe 7,500 miles or so. So far, so good.

medium size throw over bags
Honda cb1100 mounted, perfect size for the weekend overniter. length of the bag meant I did not have to worry about rear turn signal relocation or cramped rider legroom. frame mounted bag supports not needed on my application build quality is good

Great Bags for the 'Bird.
The exhaust placement on my Honda Blackbird precluded lots of the saddle bags I researched. These Tour Master bags fill the bill perfectly at a realistic price point. Zipper placement ensures easy access and structural padding means the bags maintain their shape when underway. Lastly, installation was a breeze because the velcro bag yoke could be adjusted until the bags fit perfectly under the seat. Winner!

Small capacity with several install options
We bought this one for installation on a 2012 Honda Silver Wing scooter. We found the best option is to re-work the straps so that added patches on each strap allow them to wrap around the passenger grab handles and stick to themselves. We bought velcro strips at the cloth shop to attach mating pieces. We also added snaps available at Home Depot to each strap for added security. Complaint about the bags is the relatively poor quality of the supplied rain covers.

I was looking for a simple and functional pair of bags for a 1982 Virago 920 - a bike that (in 1982) was considered a poor man's tourer. Combined with a Tour Master sissy bar bag and a tank bag, these bags provided ample storage for my wife and I to take a long weekend excursion. We hit one down pour and the bags, with rain covers, kept things dry. I am pleased.

I got these bags to use on a CBR250R, which doesn't have many other options. The bags themselves are fine, but they just don't mount in a way that is great on my bike. There isn't any inner support on the bottom of the bags, so they tend to pull in - together toward each other, at the bottom of the bags...
This might not be the fault of the bags, but they aren't engineered in a way to help it. A stiffer backing on the bags, or an interior bracket, or a side to side brace, or SOMETHING could be done to help...
So, if you have a bike where you will be able to secure the bags downward with the straps, then these should work well. If your bracing straps are inward, then be prepared for disappointment...

Good zippers, just can't lock them
Fits well on my cbr250 and looks good. Just can't lock the zippers.

Easy Fast Great Bag acc. for motorcyclist
Have had this for about 2 weeks now and its been great. Easy to install and easy to take off to carry with when not on bike. Good amount of room inside and most importantly when buying online. Revzilla did a wonderful job in describing the bag and the speed of the shipping was excellent. A++
