Is anyone using a Bags-Connection tank bag?
thoughts? like it? pics? which model?

I was looking for the one on the youtube video for Twisted Throttle but I could not find the exact one on their site.

I use the Cycle Guys tail bag that is expandable. Works great for me for day trips. And compact enough when closed to leave on all the time.

how do does that work when the bag is not full.
since the walls are fabric, it seems it would move around.

thanks

There are 2 zippers. One to open the bag, and another that zips around to expand the bag. When you zip the outside one, it collapses to very thin and is very snug on the passenger seat. The whole unit wraps around the passenger seat and is very snug (uses elastic and velcro under seat). Even zipped down to thinnest, I can still get 2 cell phones, and toll booth transponder in it. Opened up, you can get quite a bit of stuff in it.

I second that request and if I may....
a pic of how it attaches to the rear seat
a pic of the bag empty
a pic of the bag full.

also which size do you have? looks like there are several. or are they all the same size with different configurations per bike?

Thanks and sorry for all the requests.

Hopefully these photos help. Lighting not the greatest. If you want some other pic, let me know.

I think it was a size 5. Somewhere on the site I think it references the s1000. It was either size 5 or 3.
