No compartments. it looks weird if not full. (see my pic)
I only have a camera and gloves in it.

I'm going to add some kind of liner so it does not look bad when expanded.

Did you cut the slot for key access yet? And I would just put my phone in zip lock bag if carrying water bottle with it. Easy, cheap solution.

Yes, I actually made a hole to easily get to the lock and to be able to run a charger cable to the bag. Power to the bag!
I'll post a pic later.

FrankoQ,

How did you clean up the hole for lock? It sort of looks like the hole is finished with fabric rather than just a slit.

I cut a hole and then used fabric to sew around it to make it look a little better and also protect the hole from getting bigger.

Just an opinion here to throw in the mix for folks that are considering bags.

The BMW bags are a crap design at best. They must have contracted it to some outside firm that has never seen any other bag offerings.
The tank bag leaks like a fishing net btw. And it's an ugly pos. The bmw tank bag, mounting bracket on the other hand is a nice design. Wish i'd waited an extra day and got the info for the bracket, then ordered a nice sw motech bag to mount on it.

Hepco becker makes a very nice base plate that locks on the tail in place of the rear seat. It allows you to mount pretty much any tail bag on the market without damaging your paint. Hepco also has some nice saddle bags, too.
Love my blaze side bags, for looks good storage space, and once removed, bike looks stock again. I have the brocks exhaust and have no issues.

commuter mode

Notice the clearance between bag and plastics. When I'm carrying the bags, most people don't even notice that I have the plate on the bike. Hope this helps.
