First of all, I felt the quality of the bag's materials and workmanship is much better than appears in the picture. Secondly, fitting it on my bike is a bit tough since the sissy bar on my old 82 1100 Maxim is very short but that's not the fault of the bag. I have only a little over 6" of bar to work with and I feel I can still get it secure enough. And if you're a person who needs directions to do anything and have no amount of creativity whatsoever, you will be confounded by the myriad of possibilities you have to attach it to your bike.

"I HAVE A 97 HERITAGE SOFTAIL SPRINGER. IT IS ALL STOCK AND IN MINT CONDITION. SO WITH ALL THE BAGS ON IT AND I PUT THE SISSY BAR BAG ON I COULD GO FOR THE SUMMER. WHAT A GREAT BUY. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK."
"I just got back from an 800 mile round trip ride and had plenty of room for everything I took. Construction is top notch and very heavy material. Overall, I love this equipment and feel very confident having it on my bike."
"Overall, very good. A little disappointed by the mini duffle. It is quite small and and cumbersome to use. However, once you are used to loading and unloading, this bag gives you everything you need for a long outing. I am doing 12,000 miles tour of the country this summer and the bag will be with me."
"This bag can hold anything you take. Went on a 4 day rode trip, had room for more. Great $, and waterproof for that rain shower you find on a ride Lol. Buy it, you will love it!!"
"I recently used this bag for a three day trip and it held more than I needed. I didn't notice the expanding zipper until I got back or it would have carried much more. It attached very secure to my passenger's back rest and kept all my things dry during a high wind heavy rainstorm. Great product!"
"This bag is much bigger then I expected and better. Perfect for road trips."
"Product arrived earlier than expected and is better than expected."
"Excellent product. Shipment arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Have done business before with Jafrum and will again. Thanks"
"YOU CANT GO WRONG WITH THIS BAG IT IS VERY STURDY AND VERY HIGH QUALITY. IT HOLDS ALL YOU WILL NEED FOR A DAY TRIP OR OVER NIGHTER."
"I like having a good bag for my bike, I found this bag and use it"
"|Received the bag promptly and used it already on a 13 day trip. Easy to attach, straps worked well, zippers are strong, wish the opening was a little bigger to load it, but it worked well for us. Nice that it expanded as we needed every square inch it gave us. Two people for 12 days we needed the room and it worked very well. The smaller bag attached to the top of the T Bag easily and also worked well. Great investment for the money.
"I haven't used this product yet, but I'm looking forward to it. It seems to be a quality product that I can get much use out of."
"Bought this for short camping trip. Holds plenty of stuff and mounts easy to my bile Kawasaki Nomad. Just the thing I needed."
"I have a 97' FXSTC and I love it. One problem was NO BAGS. I have gotten a decent set of saddles, But could not carry enough to really travel. Found this bag and bought it. I am away from my bike for two years, But I know this will be great on it for my runns to STURGIS and LAUGHLIN, And even maybe a coast to coast trip. Plenty of room to stuff it full and with all the extra pockets I know everything will fit. Has extra straps to tie it to the bike and can be used as a rucksack or backpack WITH NO ISSUES. Its GREAT!! CAN'T WAIT TO USE IT ON MY BIKE. I use it as a Backpack while I am here and It is AMAZING!!!"
I bought it for my trip to the Panama City Rally. My wife and I were able to pack everything we needed for a 5 day trip. It's easy to use and sturdy. I highly recommend this bag!
Great set of bags. Good size for long trips. Easy to put on, and stay put. Definitely recommended for someone looking for a great looking and functional sissy bar bag.
I bought this bag and the price is good but it's not top quality. The rain cover doesn't attach or tie down very good. It just slips over and then a draw string to tighten it on. I could tell after a few miles that it was going to blow off. I stopped and tied it down with some rope. It still blew off, so now I don't have a rain cover. Another problem is the part that slides over the sissy bar is not wide enough. I have a wide backrest pad and it's difficult to get it over the backrest. After putting the bag over the sissybar twice, the bag ripped. I guess I stretched it too far. I also don't like the outside straps and buckles. Some of the male ends don't fit the female ends. So it's not very adjustable. I also think that I'm missing a couple of straps because I have female buckles but nothing snaps into them. I'm not sure of the purpose of those buckles. I do like the size of the bag and that it expands. The size can be small for a short trip or you can get a little extra room by expanding it. The main opening could be a little bigger. It takes some work to get my full face helmet in the opening.
not happy with this at all. the description says "This bag has a sleeve with laces on the back. Just slip it over the sissy bar and tighten using the ties and straps with quick release". The one I got didn't. It has a sleeve with 3 horizontal straps that you can't get tight enough to secure it to the sissy bar. The buckles and other hardware are going to end up right where the passengers back is and will make for an uncomfortable ride. I guess you get what you pay for but I will be returning this.
I ride a burgman 400 so when riding solo putting this bag on passenger seat and strapping 4 straps through the passenger hand grips it is very secure. Nicely mabe roomy, my only improvement would be sdescription mentions using as backpackband no way I can use it over my sh2 shoulders andbi nowvweigh 163, much less yearvago when I was 342, so maybe add shoulder straps more user friendly forbthat purpose.. but on bike bag be Mahvalous
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 water resistant polyurethane version of the SB1 style bag and is available in black. The exact measurements of the bags are located in the product listing. This amazing value includes the top roll bag and a full coverage rain cover at no additional charge.
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 PU is the lace up 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. They can be used for mounting the bag to the bike or for mounting additional items to the bag. 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 to the luggage for easy access.
If you use a luggage rack, take note of the weight capacity of the rack. If your gear is over the weight 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 rider backrest.
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. The outside of the bag features four additional zippered pockets for smaller items. The top pockets are fitted with straps for hanging items you want easy access to.
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 opposing cargo nets. It’s ugly, but it works really well.
I am doing a 16 day tour in July on my kawasaki voyager 1700, 2014.normally plenty of room but I am looking for a little bit extra. Looks as if all the straps could go either under the passenger seat or through under the top Bo's and around the frame. Anyone fitted this bag to this type of bike?
