Re: Motofuzz bag

That thing looks huge, it will probably hang way over the sides of the rack. I use the Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffle (medium) and can fit a whole lot in it and it fits well on the rack. Probably too small for tents and sleeping bags though. I know others that use the Wolfman large and love it, but it also hangs way over the sides of the rack.

Re: Motofuzz bag

Looks pretty nice but, as noted, it is not waterproof (comes with a rain cover). Personally, I hate stopping to cover stuff when it starts raining.

If you don't need all of the doo-dads, check out the Helen2Wheels (http://www.helen2wheels.com/) 100% waterproof bags at Racer Parts Wholesale.

Keep the light things on top, and heavier stuff in the side cases.

Never had one on an LT but I've had both the large (which I sold) and the medium, (which I have now) Motofizz bags.

They are an excellent product. The large was just too large for just me so I got the medium. If I unzip the ends of the medium bag it is the same size as the large bag zipped.

I travel a bit light but I can put 2 pairs of jeans, socks, underwear, and tee shirts plus a rolled up sleeping bag, (a small one) for a ten day trip.

Hope this helps.

Re: Motofuzz bag

I have the medium bag and it is excellent. Plenty of room for packing lots of items.

Re: Motofuzz bag

I had the medium bag on my Multistrada (before I bought a hard trunk) and it was excellent. Only drawback was it wasn't waterproof so you had to put on this giant "shower cap", which was included, whenever it looked like rain.

But it's a great design.
