The Viking Large Black Street/Sportbike Tail Bag is a great looking bag for a night or two away. It doubles as a backpack and it’s made of durable material from the zipper, the clasps and the lining. While it’s very useful and even looks great on the bike it’s a pain in the butt to put on. I agree with my friends Megan and Ryan who said during the video, “It should have some quick releases and shorter straps so they don’t flap in the wind if you don’t tuck it under the seat.” Overall, for the price and the functionality, I’d say it’s a good buy but be ready to wrestle with the installation. Seems like the simplest thing in the world but I tried it and asked Megan and Ryan to review it for two reasons.
One: I don’t own a sport bike and two: I was pretty pissed off trying to get it connected. They’re a bit more savvy than I am. A huge thanks to both of them and give them each a follow on Instagram. I’ve got their links below and Viking Bags as well if you’d like to check the Viking Tail Bag, out.
