Bags Connection Evo Rear Bag

I really wanted a tail bag for my 2,300 mile trip last week. I researched tail bags on this site and others, and although it was a bit on the pricey side, I decided to go with the Bags Connection Evo Rear Bag. I could not be happier with my choice, it fit on the bike great, it was very easy to lash down, large, but not excessively so, and very nice quality.



Expanded, it will hold a full face helmet.



Reflective piping.



Mounted and expanded







Anyone wondering what tank bag that is, it is the BMW R1100S tank bag with the extension installed (fortunately I did not need the extension for the trip, but brought it just incase).



Someone trying to be a stow-a-way

Looks great. I just have a cheap tail pack I use but it fits the GS better than the S with the seat cowl - I try not to put too much stuff on there.

I love the tank bag too - I've got one of those that I use occasionally but I don't think I can have it 'extended' and still reach the bars!

How did you attach it to the panniers? It looks like it clips onto something that my panniers don't have!

I bought my system cases used. The previous owner installed Bungee Buddy anchors. They are great and they come with rubber washers so they do not leak water.



Not a picture of my bags, just a pic I found online, but mine are installed the same.
