My BESTEM rack-bag came yesterday (EBAY part # LGHD-GLIDE-DFL $67.96) I'll try to post a pic of it on the bike next week. It's gonna look nice (not too big) and fits the rack perfect. I like it because it's only 8" tall and will collapse if needed. I put 9 pair of jeans in it for the picture but just needs to hold 2 leather jackets. Only bad thing is, it has no rain cover. It's 20 x 12 x 8.
Whatever bag you decide on, just make sure it doesn't sit up so high that it makes you top heavy when its mounted on the bike. I bought a Kuryakyn gran traveler bag on sale last year, but haven't used it yet.
Yep, I use Sealine 10 Liter Dry bags. The 30 Liter is to big. I'd rather have a few small ones. Ive never carried more than 3 on the rack since that's simplest to tie down. Lots of colors but I get either the black or orange ones. You can usually find them on sale for under $20 bucks. I use them fishing, hunting and kayaking too, which I couldn't do we a dedicated bike bag.
Problem with bags is big ones tend to get over loaded. But if you can restrain your self there are a lot of good ones.
This year we found it was time to replace our larger one. It had survived a crash but was showing wear. This one worked out great for us this year. It has a small pouch that detaches works well for stuff wife wants to grab and take in with here some times. It attaches well to the bike and hold a lot of stuff. Also priced right.
We got a T-Bag Dekker II bag. You have to watch what your passenger wants to pack in it. I use it to carry quick essentials like rain gear, camera, gloves etc. Wife wanted to fill it up. Tried letting her once, the bike became to top heavy. This bag is big, hard sided works very well attachment is rock solid and the rain cover does a good job.
Again the main issue with this or any bag that goes on top of a tour pack is weight. Watch your load can make things very unstable.
I would also consider bags for inside your tourpak and saddlebags. it's great when you get to your stop and all you have to do is reach into the pak/bag and grab the handles and pull the whole mess out in one fell swoop.
and they aren't terribly expensive either.
the basic ones work fine, while the 'premium' ones cost a little more but have stiffer walls on them. either one will work great.
I use the Velcro strips to attach it to the tour-pak rack, open the rain cover & then use a cargo net over it.
In tens of thousands of travel miles I have never had any security problem for meal or bathroom stops.
Naturally, I take it off the sled overnight.
I have the T-bags dresser roller bag, and also the Space Saver bag. The dresser roller bag is in my opinion too big and heavy for the tourpack. I used it on my trip to SWV and I won't use it again solo touring. As others pointed out it makes the bike too top heavy. I might use it if the wife and I do a weekend trip but that would be it. I believe the tourpack rack is only meant to carry 15lbs.
The space saver is a great size and weighs next to nothing. I can pack all my camping gear in it and my clothes in a waterproof roll bag on the passenger seat. The space saver also holds a fair amount of clothes if going 2-up.
Does anyone have any experience with this heel shiftter? i typically don't care for heel shifters as i'm the type of rider with my foot all over the board and find standard heel shifters often in my way, lol. recently i put love jugs on and find reaching around them to up-shift more annoying...
Well last night I pulled the trigger and ordered myself a set of LoveJugs for my ‘19 RGS 114.
This bike is the hottest running bike I ever had.
Anyone install these with the frame mount? Any pointers would be appreciated.

Has anybody dealt with this guy and had a good experience? I read many reviews about people not receiving what they had paid for, and hoped it would be different. Really a cool looking product, but I finally gave up after 12 weeks and had my credit card company dispute the charge.
I've seen other people have issues with this company so I thought I would share my expierence as well.
I'm building a custom Heritage bagger and contacted Bagger Bags and placed my order for stretched saddlebags. Excited as hell to get them, mock up the placement then send off for paint. Boy...
