    How do you think that leather tourpak in the first post compares for capacity with a large T-Bag or Saddleman bag that fits over a backrest? I could use a new bag for the back of the fatty, but not sure if I wanna put the money into a removable leather tourpak or a new T-Bag..
    I think the regular Tourpak is a bit larger and without looking at the leather one, would think a little more secure. I am cutting in a second lock on my Tourpak lid so both latches lock... I have used T-Bags before, they are nice but most of them are very soft and pliable... T Bag does make a bag that is a direct fit for the Tourpak on top of the luggage rack for road trips.. I might end up with one of them for extra capacity.. on long hauls...

      I looked at the expandable Saddlemen (BR3400EX) and the T-Bag Expandable. They both claim to have about 3500 cubic inches of storage. The leather Tour-Pak, per the Harley website is actually only 2500 cubic inches of storage. I was surprised..

      But, I do agree, Lee, that the Tour-Pak does provide better protection, and with being lockable, is more secure. At a price.
