Ok It wasn't my first choice but I am glad I got it. There was enough room for my wife's crap makeup curling iron etc etc and all of my clothes plus my laptop for 4 days at daytona and still enough room for the trip back with all of the stuff we bought there.

Most Helpful Reviews :
"great bag when it is filled all the way up. I put a garbage can in mine (like others have thats where i got the idea) and it rides a lot better and is easier for every day use. Great construction way better than any thing else out there for the price. Since this purchace I have bought many other items for my self and family they have all been great products."
"I read the reviews before I received my bags, and I agree that they have enough room for a comfortable bike trip. As others have stated the shipping is very quick, I ordered them on Saturday and received them on Wednesday.|I already have plans to order again from Jafrum, I am completely satisfied."
"Purchased a sissy bar bag, leather vest, and saddlebags. All are top quality and the prices can't be beat. |I will be buying again as well as telling all my friends."
"ordered 1 week ago, have arrived, had to pay import duty ,but certainly worth every penny.commute 150 miles daily, usually in rain. english summer. so wareing well."
"Just received my leather sissy bar bag in the mail yesterday. The fit for my 2000 Road Star is FANTASTIC! There's tons of room in this bag with the expansion area unzipped. Plenty of pockets all around, and with all the straps, there's no way that this bag will ever come undone. I roll up my bike cover and strap it to the bottom front of this bag, and it makes a perfect lumbar support for those long rides!! Would highly recommend this bag!!"
"I own a C109R with a 'Zuki sissy bar. I needed to have 2" extra materialo sewn into the sleeve to fit over the backrest, but other than that limitation, the bag is incredibly large. I frequently grocery shop on my bike -- it'll handle about 6 (plastic) bags of groceries packed well!"
"the bag is overall very good. it expands and can hold tons of gear. the zippers could be of higher quality, but function well. i've used it in very heavy rain and it held up well. i would defintely recommend this to anyone."
"Great bag, I waited to write a review untill I used it, Worked perfect. This bag held everything I needed for a 1400 mi. trip,the rain cover kept my stuff dry. I'm getting ready to buy from Jafrum again, I would and am going to recommend Jafrum to everyone."
"Arrived within 2 days. Good construction, versatile (expandable). A tad bigger than I assumed. All in all another great deal."
"I bought this bag for a bike trip from Detroit to Atlanta, and I was very happy. Plenty of room, and a great back rest. I use it every time I travel whether on or off the bike. It's a great quality bag that I would recommend to anyone!"
"I order this bag with hesitation. I couldn't believe the price. Much to my surprise it is the best bag ever. My husband and I take a big ride every year and this bag will hold all of our stuff and it looks great on the heritage. We also got the boot covers. Wonderful products and got them so quickly. LOVE LOVE LOVE this site and products."
"Bought this bag 3 yrs ago. Wife and I can get enough stuff on the bike for a weeks trip. Used it dozens of times, works great."
"Unbelievable quality ..... Ordered this luggage and it came early and I was just shocked at the quality...... so i went and because i saved so much i ordered the Rain gear..... it came in early also and its beyond what that claim ...its way better than they claim also."
"I bought this bag earlier in the year and have used it 3 times. Each time, I didn't have enough stuff to put in it - it's huge! Used it and the rain cover on a 300 mile trip where it rained the whole way, and the rain cover worked flawlessly - everything was dry. I saw this same bag at a rally and it was listed for twice the price. If you need a good quality bag that holds lots of stuff, do yourself a favor and don't pass this one up. Another great product from Jafrum. I will continue to recommend you to all my biker friends."
"Man the size is unreal you can take anything with you. I go on a five day trip and put all my clothes in it plus an air mattres and two soft collers, and on the out side i strap my sleeping bag , 4 man tent and my chair . with all the straps and diffrent locations to strap it down its easy to hold it all and safley get it all together on the bike. and that rain cover has come very handy several times , and the one thing that realy makes this bag better than some of those expensive ones my buddies have is those nice sized side pockets (4) where you can store things where they can quikly be had if needed like a map, phone, beverage, and that rain cover."
"Bag was here in two days, I could not have found a better product, it looks great and worked perfect."
"Great bag, great price. Plenty of capacity. I needed the rain cover several times during the ride, it was easy to use and no problem on the way."
"I ordered the bag made of man made material, but Jafrum sent me a leather one. No problem. The quality is good and I look forward to many trips with on the sissy bar of my Sporty. As always, the shipping was the next day and I received it within three days."
"Great bag, fits nicely on my Harley Sportster. Soft leather and lots of ways to attach"
Sissy bar bags are a great way to add a very large amount of easily removable storage to your bike. There are numerous different sizes, materials, and mounting options available, so there is sure to be one to suit your needs.
This is the cowhide leather version of the SB1 style bag and is available in black. The top roll bag is included at no additional charge as is a full coverage rain cover.
Now, I’m not going to go over every single pocket and zipper on this thing. There’s too much. There are some really good photos on the listing if you need a better look from a certain angle. What I want to do for you is show you some of the unique features and more importantly how the mounting system works. Also, there are some key features that this bag does not have on purpose, so we can look at those and give you something to look for and think about so you can pick the best backrest bag for you.
The most important thing to remember with motorcycle luggage, especially sissy bar bags, is that there really isn’t a wrong way to mount them. These bags come with a ton of mounting options, some of which you may not be able to use on your particular motorcycle, and that’s ok. You may even come up with an arrangement that the manufacturer hasn’t even thought of. Basically, if the bag is secure, it’s mounted correctly.
The main component to the mounting system on the SB1 Leather is this laced sleeve. Simply fit this sleeve over the backrest and tighten and you’re most of the way there. There are numerous straps and clips covering the outside that can be used however necessary. The only limitation is your imagination. I like to use them to secure frequently used items, like raingear, an extra sweatshirt or vest, or even a tent. If you use a luggage rack, take note of the weight capacity. If you are over the limit, no big deal. Mount the bag backwards and set it on the seat. Depending on your riding position, you may have just created yourself a comfy little backrest of your own.
To mount the supplementary roll bag simply feed the mounting straps through the roll bag straps and connect using the buckles. The cool thing about this strap system is that you don’t have to put the roll bag here if you don’t want to. It’s also the perfect spot for your bed roll or sleeping bag. Still need more room for even more junk? Not to worry. The main bag expands to almost 200% of its original depth by unzipping this full circumference zipper.
One of the features this bag doesn’t have that some riders like is an internal frame of some sort to make the bag rigid. There is actually some benefit to this in certain situations. I often find that I return from trips with way more stuff than when I left, especially if I have visited with friends or family. Because this bag has no internal frame, it can be rolled up and stowed in a saddlebag until it’s needed. If you prefer a rigid bag, but don’t want to spend upwards of three hundred dollars to get one, simply place a small rectangular container like a garbage can inside the bag to create a rigid sissy bar bag.
Another feature included with this piece of luggage is the complementary rain cover. It rolls up small enough to fit into one of the small exterior pockets but is large enough to fit over not just the bag but almost anything you may have attached to the outside of it. If you don’t have anything on the outside of the bag to fill up the cover, be sure to wrap some bungies of some sort around the cover to keep the wind from tearing it up. I personally like to use two cargo nets. It’s ugly, but it works really well.
