I highly highly recommend the T-Bags. Lots and lots of pockets ect., Two of my friends have them and recommended them before we took a 350 mile ride up to central CA from San Diego. I was leery, but was extremely happy with the amount of stuff you can get in them and the ease of accessing stuff because of the multiply pockets.

I"ve been looking at various versions of those. Which one did you get and where?

I would still like to try this http://www.bikersfriend.com
I have read several good reviews of them and since I ride solo most of the time, I love backrest! Of course, I'm spoiled now since my last back rest was a set of 36D's, and they were Heated! :smoke

This is the one I bought but they have many sizes. It was great because I used it as a back rest. I bought the lugguge at a local motorcycle shop called Cycle Visions but they should sell these all over the country.

I have a similar bag to the bikersfriend
http://www.cruiserbag.com/

Yes pricey but the backrest and hard insert make it better
than the other soft types. You can lean against it hard without
crushing it.

Used it on a 6400 mile trip and I won't ride long distances without it.
I use a SAC T-bag and this cruiser bag together for lots of storage.

I don't recommend the soft T-bags (SAC) because they sag after a while.

YMMV

I dunno... WAY back in the day I had one of the first Cheapie T-bags...

I liked it well enough. But it wasn't waterproof and it took some care to get it on and off everyday (not that tailbags don't take a couple minutes too).

I reverse mounted it sometimes as a backrest, sure, but not all that often.

and in the end, I was looking for a tour trunk for the waterproof and instant on/off and open/close convenience.

Unfortunately I think the new Harley trunk is both a bit goofy looking on the solo Sportys and WAAAAYYYY to pricey for my cheap blood.

I've got a Givi take-off I could probably jury rig to the detachable HD luggage rack for some touring, but Jenn is FAR too vane to let me get away with that.
