Re: Leather top-case bag
A couple of thoughts:
1) I would think a leather bag would be quite a bit heavier than one made from synthetic material. Don't really want any more weight than necessary that high on the bike.
2) I've always loved my old leather m/c jacket, but I seldom ever wear it anymore. Why? Tech jackets are much more waterproof, better armor, lighter, just better in every way. So, regarding luggage, I would want something that keeps the contents dry in a downpour. While a nice looking piece, that bag doesn't appear to meet that qualification.
