Just finished a 2,012 mile ride from Portland, Oregon to Monterey, California and back. I bought these and the tail bag to hold 5 days worth of clothes plus other items I'd need. Bags mounted up fantastically, held strong - never loosening up, despite many miles of hard riding. Zippers and materials were all of great quality and the style didn't kill the look of my bike - an '01 ZRX1200R. I highly recommend these bags. Nothing will beat them at this price point!
