Been using the Cycleguys tail bag for almost 2 years now and it has served me well for short & long trips. It's shower proof too. You could easily carry stuff for an overnight trip. Unlike a tank bag, the tail bag does not create any turbulence at higher speeds - feels like you are not carrying any luggage. Best part is that its ready for use anytime cos its always on my bike.

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

MMmm. SOLD! order placed. I'll post pics once installed.
I think this is the best solution for my needs.
- keep it on the bike at all times
- can be expanded as needed
- does not tamper with the good looks of the tail.
- I did not want a tank bag. I did not realize how often you need to put gas on this bike plus it will hide the beauty of the tank.
- I can run power to it from underneath and be able to charge cellphone, camera, etc.
- I don't have to do acrobatics to mount the bike.
- size seems just right for day rides.

Thank you so much for the pics. That did it for me.

When you install it, you will need to cut small slit in the bottom of bag for access to the seat lock. I did mine with razor knife and it is nearly impossible to tell when you look inside. I will take a photo of that today.

Wunderlich do a tank bag that you can still access the fuel cap with the bag in place.
They also now do a tail pack.

Both specifically designed for the S1k.

Yes I noticed that on their website.
I will use it to run the wires from underneath for power source.
But, yeah, post a pic so I can see how you did it.

I was looking at those before.
I did not like the tank bag, the tail one is nice.

The tail bag looks really good. I was thinking on canceling my order and getting this instead. but, the cycle guys bag is more practical. it will hold more when needed.

Does it have any separate compartments? Worried about putting my cell phone in the same compartment as bottles of ice water due to condensation. Also, would two bottles of waters fit without having to use it expended?

Thanks
