Looking for touring bag

Have been looking at various soft luggage for my FLTRX checked out the Tbag, Harley premium touring bag and reluctantly the Kuryakyn offerings. So anyone that has owned any of the above and has an opinion to offer, it would be much appreciated. I'm specifically interested in the larger variety as It would need to accommodate both my wife and myself on a several day trip.

I've been doing the same search but haven't pulled the trigger on a bag as of yet. Have you checked out the Saddlemen BR3400?

I've had a Kuryakyn Full Dresser bag for 7-8 years and have averaged a couple trips per year with it. It is a big bag with a hard plastic in core to maintain shape. The only issue I've had is the rain cover ripped - probably my own fault for pulling on it too hard. I was able to purchase a new rain cover separately for a reasonable price.

Check out Cool SAC. They are just as big as the T bags if not bigger and way less $$.

I have 2 different T-Bags. I like there Helmet Bag. It fits great on my luggage rack & packs enough stuff for myself. IMO, T-Bags are top quality.

I have that bag. Love it. Lots of room and pockets. I do secure it with extra bungie cords. Great bag.

An acquaintance who travels on his Roadie extensively uses a Saddleman bag that goes on top of his tour pak rack. He is picky about his stuff and is very satisfied with his bag.

Best of luck and let us know what you end up with.

I have three of the T-bags...the Dresser Back Seat, the Original Universal and a Helmet Bag. I used the Universal on my Fatboy attached to the passenger backrest at the time. I travel with the Helmet Bag and the Dresser Back Seat on the RGU and used them with my EGs and Goldwing, as well. They are very durable and I have owned two of them for going on ten years now. The Dresser Back Seat for about seven years. The rain covers work well and each bag can hold a lot of gear....quality products! The pic shows the Helmet and Dresser Back Seat bags on board with rain covers.
