Looks like a fairly good solution, and means I could probably run with my fastpack under the ogio, meaning always have the fastpack on the bike (for times I might not expect to carry anything) and stick on the ogio if I am going for a dayride and don't want to dawn the backpack.

One quick question though, given how the rear straps go up near the grab rails/handles (not sure what they are called exactly), have you noticed it wear through the paint at all? I doubt it would, but wanted to check. I also had questions about running it with the bag 'off' (and the buckles damaging things), but clearly you can just stow the cables and carabiner in the underseat when not using the tailpack.
I haven't had any issues as far as paint on the passenger handles rubbing off. The straps are a fairly snug fit under the passenger handles, so they stay in place when the bag is off. I chose to route the rear straps through that slot between the passenger handles and the upper tail light housing because it worked well in relation to the overall length of the tail bag. When I first routed the rear straps directly through the gap between the rear pillion seat and the upper tail light housing, that method allowed the tail bag to move a couple inches fore and aft on the seat, due to the seat being shorter than the bag, even though I had tightened the straps as much as possible. So then I realized that by going under the passenger handles with the rear straps, the fore and aft movement was eliminated. The straps are easy to slide into the gap under the handles, so stowing the straps under the seat, or even just removing them from the bike altogether is not a problem. You may have noticed from the photo of the rear of the bag installed that I folded the rear corners of the bottom pad for a cleaner look where the pad meets the upper tail light housing. As I said in my review, this bag looks as if it were made for the CBR250R. All in all, I really like this tail bag and highly recommend it.

Agreed... it looks good (just big enough with out looking like you've got a big old suitcase strapped on back there), is very functional and well designed. IMO it is the Tail Bag to have.

BTW, I don't usually endorse stuff... so this is kind of an exceptional case.

Thanks Mike for summing this up nicely. I did the same set up and have been well pleased with the bag. I've had it on for about 1500 miles now and not noticed any paint rub or ill effects. I really like all the compartments and how well the zippers function. Fortunately I haven't had to try out the rain cover yet..

Will this thing comfortably hold a DSLR, an extra lens and external flash?

Ok. Finally sat down to order last night. I can't find it ANYWHERE! It's backordered on every site. Can anyone find it? If so shoot me a PM so I can get it. Bummed out.

Did you check at ogio.com? I believe they will sell direct. Another one to try is competitionaccessories.com
