    @Dpak89 - I have kept your post as my signature. Very well written, i hope this will clear out small issues.

    @ all - I purchased the Viaterra Claw, got it delivered over the weekend. Good bag with lots of space. Opted for a black one but another friend was more interested so took his orange colored bag. It fits perfect, I'm yet to try it on a ride. Uploading a pic, the straps hold the bag tight, there are no movements even at hard braking, again, I'm yet to try it on with any luggage so cant comment. The straps have D-Ring setup for pressure and fastening, one of things I dint like are the straps look too small for the size and weight of the bag. I hope they provide the fastening without breaking loose.

    Yes hope it helps some!

    This bag looks very nice and pure VFM from what i see. 55 liters capacity is more than enough for even a week long trip!
    BTW can you please post a pic of the rain cover? The V2 has a tendency of splashing the water from rear wheel (hitting the bottom side of the bag) while riding in heavy rains. This happens if you have cut the mudguard (like our case).

    13. Please use a central stand of RX for servicing the R15. It fits perfectly for our bike and costs around 150RS i guess.

    I got stand recently from mumbai yamaha center.. very useful for chain lubing and bike cleaning.

    Item Part Code Price(Rs)
    RX 135 stand - 36LF1110100 222.22
    Shaft - 36LF71120000 54.22
    + 34 (12%VAT)
    Total - 311

    Default Scratches !!

    Hi Friends,
    There are quite a lot of scratches on the parts near the pillion seat. Most probable reason would be that instead of holding the rider, pillion tends to hold the frame near the pillion seat. Now if this pillion is wearing any rings\ or bangles and stuff (in case of a female) it just scratches off the paint in that part. Has anyone of you experienced the same???
    For this I had a remedy in mind
    Get a pair of gloves (free size) and make the pillion to wear it every time (no matter who the pillion is)but this would be a bit extreme.
    What else can I do about it???
    And yeah is wax polish good enough to hide scratches???If yes, the how much would it cost?? which brand??

    Actually the rain cover is only for the upper part of the bag, so the lower part would be painted with splashing

    For detailed review,you can refer Aargee's post: http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/universa...-review-2.html

    I am going for a long ride in coming weekend, so can give a detailed review of how it behaves on R15(V2).

    Yesterday night I went for small spin with the CLAW bag just to check whether it holds all things well. Stuffed in 3 denims, 8 T shirts, SLR with case, laptop with cahrger (now that takes a lotta space, tool kit,chain spray can, pair of extra shoes, one sack just in case,2*1.2L tupperware bottles. went from CC to Balewadi stadium. Strapped the bag fastened it safe and secure. and it didnt move an inch. it was right there spot on.

    @Eshan: the straps are thin but they do solve the purpose and upto the mark.
    With all that stuff. the bag must have been close to around 5 Kg.. Also It serves the dual purpose of back support at times..
    tailor made for this bike.

    Few things I'd like to mention. The sides which hang down, they tend to move near the tyre and away at times. Do not I repeat DO NOT forget to fasten it tightly.
    You need to have serious skills to shove in clothes and stuff in that bag. As neat as you can and you can put in more than enough for a week long ride easily.

    Lighter things on the sides like clothes. heavier and delicate stuff on the seat ( middle part) and you are good to go.

    P.S. Did not try putting on the rain cover. Already it was 3 in the morning and I was tired after packing and repacking things

    For the Bag. Totally worth it

    To all those how-to-run-in-the-bike-oh-it's-so-confusing. Here's an advice.
    Read and follow the OWNER's Manual. Keep it simple.. Old School technique will do more good than harm your bike
