Product FAQ

How did the "U" shape bag design come about?
The original "U" shape bag designs can be traced back to the riders of the Pony Express, some of the most adventurous riders who have ever lived! Since the time of the Pony Express the bags have been reshaped and reworked by many. Today, several companies make "U" shaped or "Horse shoe" shaped bags. This light weight, universal design allows our bags to be used in a wide variety of motorcycle models.

Do I need any additional brackets or mounting systems with your rear tail bags?
For most bikes not additional parts are needed. However it is very important to make sure the exhaust side plastics and body work are not pushed into the muffler area when your bags are fully loaded. A hose clamp can be used to keep the body panels away from the muffler area if needed. Our Tech staff can also be reached if you have any mounting questions.

Are the bags waterproof?
The bags are made from waterproof material and very durable, However the zipper systems do not allow them to be 100% waterproof. Realistically unless the bags are completely submerged under water they WILL keep your gear dry and dust free.

Why are your bags less expensive than the others on the market?
