Soft Top Case

Anyone using this soft top case on a GT? I'm looking for a review

I don't use the BMW bag. I got one of the Ortlieb bags in black. Took off the shoulder strap as the handles work well enough for me. It holds an amazing amount of stuff and once you got your stuff in there you can squish out the air and have a very nice waterproof bag. http://www.ortliebusa.com/CartGenie/prod-62.htm

Never been a fan of the BMW bags in any format. Too much money for only a mediocre product.

If you want to save some $$$ I used one of these Motofizz Bags for a long time on my old RT. Never had a problem with it. The large one is the same size as the BMW bag, give or take an inch.

I have one AND I'm selling it (selling the bike, accessories gotta go). Check the classifieds.

For the money I was very happy with it. It certainly doesn't have the suave looks of the CooCase or and other hard cases, but it worked out fine. Tons of space inside, easy enough to pull off the bike and just carry into a hotel. I packed for a week with mine, had room to spare.

To be honest, when I saw it in person, it looked kind of cheap. I'll tell you what though, it is bulletproof. Fended off even the biggest bug splatter with ease and in moderate rain everything I had was high and dry inside.
