Dowco Fastrax Sport / Adventure Tail Bag
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 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.

A shopper asked: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?
RevZilla: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.Oct 22, 2012
