This product is fun to set up and install.
Time will tell on durability- just put it on. I actually attached it with self sticking Velcro but the array of straps will work with about any bike. It is great on my wr250r with plenty of room for short trips. Lot's of ways to attach to your tail rack.

Great bag for the money!
I bought this for more storage on my FJR for a 5 day trip. It held all the extra stuff I needed that wouldn't fit in my saddle bags. It strapped to my passenger seat with ease and stayed put even under highway speeds, twisty roads, and rough coastal roads. The most important thing was the waterproof cover actually worked! We got rain for part of every day and rode for 4 hours in driving rain one day. When we stopped, all the contents were still dry. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a tailbag of this size.

Great Tail Bag.
I used this tail bag along with the Fastrax,Saddlebags. on a 4 day trip to Americade. 2015. The tail bag is a great bag, durable. Fits a full face helmet Shoei RF-1100 size XL, when the bag is fully extended.
Without the helmet, it can fit a pair of shoes, T-shirt and a whole bunch of odds and ends. Did not fit my 17 laptop. My laptop had to go into the saddlebags. All in all, I highly recommend.
Note: I used pink Rok Straps to lift up the saddle bags. The saddle bags drooped on the sides without the straps. A look did not like. So the Rok straps lifted up the droop, while further securing all the bags. Also I used silver reflective tape on the saddlebags for extra visibility on the road.

Not very durable
I bought this bag for my BMW GS adventure. I put it in place of the rear seat. The height is good because I can still throw a leg over it unless it is fully expanded. I like the ability to color coordinate it with my bike. The bag looks sturdy and well built and the size is perfect. The zippers look waterproof but the seal started shredding in about 6 months. it is now about 3 years old and the zipper pulls have all broken off. I replaced them with key rings but they don't work as well. Now the teeth of the main zipper broke and I need to replace the bag. I sure expected it to last longer. I think I'll try the wolfman bag this time.

This is a gift for my son, his first real street bike needs a little storage, I thought the video was very helpful, I just hope it fits nicely. He Purchased a 15 Duc 848 Street Fighter. The rear tail section is quite tapered so we'll see how it goes once it arrives.

Lots of versatility, good size, lots of mounting flexibility and the fact that it came with the extra dry bag gives me that much more flexibility for those times I need just a little more space. Maybe I'll just put dirty clothes in it, who knows, but it's nice to have the option and it mounts properly to the bag so it will be there when I get home.

how many liters does this bag hold? Looking for internal size of this bag.

Is there enough space to put a gallon of milk\water laying down inside?
Robert V on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, yes this bag expand pretty well. I've stored my jacket, gloves and a six pack.
I am looking for a tail bag for my '73 Norton Commando. It has a two-up seat that is about eleven inches wide towards that back. Would this back be a good fit? If not, what would you recommend?

thanks!
A shopper on Oct 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Dimensionally speaking, yes, the Dowco Fastrax Sport / Adventure Tail Bag would be a good fit for the 11" wide seat on your '73 Norton.

Ascetically, it might not be the best match, as this bag is target towards Dual Sport and Adventure Touring bikes. As long as you are concerned more with function over fashion, then the Dowco Fastrax Sport / Adventure Tail Bag is a great choice.
Will this bag fit a 15" laptop (13"x9")?
