Talking Tail Bag

Anyone try any of these bags ?

Have any of you used this bag ?
http://www.cyclegear.com/CycleGear/A.../p/41281_00000
Is it terrific ?
I have no passenger seat or backrest on my cruiser.
I have a tankbag on my rear fender facing backward.

I need a bag that will stay on the rack securely.
The rack is 13" w x 8 1/2" deep (with 2 inches clearance to the tank bag).

Thanks,
JJ

Hi JJ
You have quite a bit of storage with those two tank bags and your saddlebags. You might consider the Saddlemen TS3200 Deluxe Sport to sit where you have the tank bag and put the tank bag on the rack. The Saddlemen looks like it would help keep the weight lower as well. Just an idea to think about. Sorry I can't help with your other choices.

The tankbag is too tall & long & floppy (if not full) to rack mount.
The bag on the tank is small.
The Saddlemen TS3200 tunnel is too small for the fender part and too small for the rack.
The tankbag is 42 liters.
The saddlebags are small.

thanks,
JJ

I'm quite happy with the Kuryakyn Gran Tour http://www.kuryakyn.com/Products/344/GranTour-Bag

I have a sissybar and luggage rack though, but they do show how to strap it down without, and it gives you a backrest that way!

That one is too tall.
My rack is very high up to begin with.
I ended up getting a http://www.giviusa.com/givi-products...oll-bag-detail which matches the bag that I have on the rear fender.

Thanks all of you for the replys.
