Tail Bags - any recomendations?

Does any have any ideas on 'tail bags'? I've searched the threads, and see alot talk about tank bags and saddle bags, but nothing about the bags that attach to the rear seat.
Not looking for something too big, maybe enough to slip my laptop into.

I am in love with both the small and medium Aerostich Moto-Fizz bags. Check the dimensions. Great, multifunctional, easy to clip on and off.

I just got this from TwistedThrottle, and I'm pretty impressed so far. My Versys isn't in yet so I haven't been able to try it in action yet.

If you'd rather go soft-sided, I used this one on my little Ninja 250 and it was pretty awesome. It was juuuuust big enough to squeeze my laptop into (without a case).

Those are both nice - i like the Cortech. And the price range seems nice.

I got the cargo bag by Bags-Connection from Twisted Throttle , It fits the V perfectly and is nice and compact but will expand to a decent size for those longer hauls.

For what it's worth I just picked up the Cortech Sport Bag.

Most impressed. It comes with a foam base and hide away bungies ( if you want to hide them away), carrying handle, foam protector for the base, shoulder strap, and rain cover.

My problem has been finding a tail pack that looks modestly professional at the office and large enough to handle a laptop with a 15" screen... It's not overly large or high. It has a single main compartment with a two small side compartments.

Someone else had recommended this bag in a post, but it was out of stock at most locations last summer. I recently found one at a local shop for $84.00 CDN. While the price is a little high in my mind, the bag is fair value.

If you are looking for a tail bag that can handle the tech toys required for office life: Blackberry, laptop, power adapters, usb cables, mouse, glasses, etc... this one works.

I got the black one. I think it is faster...

I have a Nelsen Rigg. It has plenty of room for rain gear, extra gloves, shoes, and other little stuff in it's reduced size. Expanded, it will carry even more. The rain cover is also expandable.DSC00349.jpg

I have a Chase Harper Aeropac tail trunk that I've had for a decade. Big enough for a laptop plus everything you need for a weekend trip. I've used it on my Bandit for long trips and never had a problem. Still fits nicely on the back seat of the Versys, so not too big. Never leaked a drop of water even in extended downpours. Made in America too!

Go big or go home...LOL I have the med and the large. These moto fizz bags kick azz! I have had crotech, nelson riggs and several other softbags and the moto fizz bags are the Mercedes of soft bags. Worth every penny and more.

I have the Cortech one and love it. And toocanad is correct. The black one is faster than red or blue.
