Impatient in Cleveland...
I filed off little half moons next to the latch, but that didn't help. I might be a little more patient with this bag, but I find the map pocket useless (for holding anything in larger than a postcard), and when you put the raincover on it covers up the darned thing. This is one point where the little BMW bag has it over on everyone else as far as I can tell - their raincover has a clear top so you can continue to see the map in the rain.
Anyone know of a 3-point attaching bag with a decent sized map pocket (at least 5" x10" and preferably a little wider) and a rain cover that lets you continue to use the map? (I figure I'll need this on my trip to Alaska next summer.) I'd like something large enough to include my SLR, GPS, glasses, Treo, wallet, etc., that I can easily take off when I leave the bike unattended. A three point attachment like the Cortech Super Mini uses makes this a snap - too bad it's too small and that the raincover covers up the map window...
