Question Lean

V2Celt
Can you lean against it ?
How do you have it on your bike ?
Is it easy to find your stuff ?

Wink Long

I just checked.
I have 15" to the license plate,14" wide.
The 60 L is 27.5" long & the 34L is 21.7" long.
I don't know about these.
I would have it on all the time and want to get to my stuff.
That's why the tunnel type bag http://www.saddlemen.com/Products/K2...NNEL-BAGS.html
is in the running.

thanks,
JJ

Looks like the tunnels are too small for my fender & struts.

Fits ALL bikes with a 9-inch-wide or smaller rear seat/pillion
Fits ALL bikes with a 12-inch wide or smaller rear seat/pillion

Mine is 14"w x 15"l.
I'll have to check.Maybe the curved fender part is small enough.

Can lean against it only when full JJ, not rigid, not as easy to find stuff as say tunnel bags.
Iv got a saddlemen SDP2600 roller bag for sale, used 3 times, my Momma prefers travel bag we modded when we 2 up, I like the SDP.

Talking Fit

The tunnel bag http://www.saddlemen.com/Products/K2...de-Tunnel.html has the kind of functionality that your SDP2600 roller bag has.
The tunnel goes from 12"w to 9"w 3" deep.
Fender is 10 1/2" w.
I wrote the company.

Yeah that tunnel bag is sweet, more space than I thought, perfect for your needs, cosmetically as well. Enjoy.

Wink Bags

I asked the maker how many liters it holds.
If it's 70 liters (doubtful) I could go without saddlebags/rack.
If saddlebags won't open with the tunnel bag then I would have to get an expandable magnetic tank bag and use saddlebags/rack.
It's fun figuring this stuff out.
Less fun for me to find the $$$$.
