This is from the Author. The three bags stacked as you see them is actually a bit shorter than my T-Bag with their Roll Bag attached. But on the VIrago, the luggage rack is much higher than racks on most bikes where it's closer to the top of the bikes fender. Also, the VIrago has a stepped seat, so it still looks tall when I've turned it around. Yet, the whole thing is remarkably stable on the road, and I haven't had any problems with it. I wouldn't want to be bombing around Deal's Gap with it, but it won't fall off, and really doesnt effect the handling of the bike that much. And if you're on a 10 day trip, you gotta have room for all your stuff.

From the Author:

The three bags stacked are actually not quite as tall as my T-Bag with Roll Bag attached. It just looks tall because the luggage rack on the Virago sits very high up. Most racks will sit a lot closer to the rear fender. And since the Virago has a stepped seat, it looks tall there as well. But it is still very stable and doesn't affect the handling too much. The heavy stuff is in the saddlebags. And when traveling solo, you don't need all three bags. I can do a 10 day trip with just the bottom 2 bags, or even just the big one and small one.

Since chaps are assless, you now know what the salve (said with a lisp) is for.

"The bandages and salves are for treating the lash wounds from the handlebar tasthless (said with a lispth)"



Uh, dude........... I don't think THOSE kinds of marks are made by tassles (leastaways, not ones only 3" long......)
