seems over priced for what it is
I agree, but what looks interesting is the different thickness zip-off pads for the backrest, (3 included), and the bag has an internal frame, so it will act as a backrest even when your dope isn't in it.
I meant when it's empty.

I have had one on my Sabre for about 4 years and I do like it a lot as it makes a very good backrest. The only problem I have had is that it has faded from being out in the sun and now looks medium grey colored. It's not the biggest bag inside with the frame in it but you take it out and get more in it if needed. Search Ebay for a better price, I found several that were a lot cheaper just now.

Heard good things about it but never tried one.

You may also want to check out Biker's Friend. That's what I wanted before I had a backrest.

Somebody else makes one similar but the inside pipe is grooved/ribbed to keep things from sliding.
I'm liking this bag. It does just what I have wanted. Provides storage and has a backrest built in. The rigid core means you can use the backrest even when the bag is empty.

Now I go look for pricing... That's usually where they lose me.

I don't know if you have your heart set on a Tombstone but I have a GranTour bag that goes everywhere with me. Typically I leave it on the luggage rack when going back and forth to work but for longer rides I strap it to the back seat. I did a longer write up on the bag on another site and if anybody is interested I can copy it over. With shipping I paid about $150.

I bought that exact bag. It is very good quality and comes with all sorts of strap and pads for attaching. BUT I have a 2004 vt1100c Spirit and even with the thinest pad ( it comes with three) it is still too long to fit between the sissy bar pad and the driver. I really like the bag and have debated with removing the sissy bar pad so I can use it or selling it. It has been sitting on my shelf for a year now.
