Duker,

You forgot to list the acceleration and braking data.

Also, did you "spoon on some stickier buns" or leave the OEM fitted tires on for your testing?

I got one of these also, because I'm starting to do Edelweiss tours. One thing to note, in addition to the extra weight charges, is that some of these bags are large enough to trigger an oversized-luggage charge. So a person should compare the size they buy against the airline size restrictions.

It would be nice if manufacturers picked up on this market and started making them to look more like executive luggage, and less like super-crosser bags. Also, it's tough to get much clothing inside of them once they're packed with riding suit, armor, boots, lid, etc. I'm taking a second, 22" rolling duffle along with my Ogio to the UK in a couple of months, for regular clothes.

I swear to Christ that cliche is the reason I never read American motorcycle magazines. I think there is some editorial directive that said it must be used at least twice an issue.

If we switched to race rubber, we would've had to juggle with the geometry and ride height, so we left them stock.

Don't forget the word "tasty" must be used 12 times per issue.

Surplus seabag, $11.95 at Surplus store. Holds more.

If you need wheels 'cause of the weight then you should visit the gym......
