    Mounting is easy once you get used to it.
    Sidd, thank you. This was used on the V1 R15 I presume?

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    So, a few questions. How well does the fixing mechanism hold the Seaty in place? I mean once loaded, does it sway to one side and start leaning towards one side, also does the fixing straps hold their tension after repeated loading, just so I get an idea. Sometimes the velcros can be a PITA. TIA.

    Cheers!

    So far, I haven't faced any issues with the Seaty swerving to the sides after being loaded. There are no velcros, this has a D-Ring system so you can tighten it to hold it in place. I have taken it on not-so-good roads and it performed well, to my satisfaction.

    I have gone on short trips with it just thrice and so far, I haven't got a chance to load it fully. Once, I carried a full 1 litre water bottle and I couldn't get to load all the items evenly in the bag. But, it didn't cause any issue while riding.

    I feel the bag is a good & compact product and serves its purpose pretty well. Sarabjit has been using it longer than I have, so his opinions will be more valuable.

    Exactly what I wanted to know. So, these aren't velcro instead use plastic square buckles, thank you for that. I haven't used both or seen one in person for that matter, as I didn't like the Seaty 1 model, hence wanted better insights on the V2 SEATY. I think I'll go ahead and get one.

    Thank you Sidd.

    Cheers!

    My experience is a little different. I've been using the Seaty v1 on my R15 and v2 on my R3.
    While the inner mesh and compression cords on the sides are useful, I find the double strap design of the v2 causing it to sag to one side when loaded. It's pretty secure from the bottom though.
    Not sure if I'm trying it wrongly or there is a way to tighten it further.

    Thumbs up Re: Universal: Riding Bags/Luggage Thread

    While discussing with friends about motorcycle riding bags, for my RE classic 500, I found that very few took it seriously and gave some good advice about bags. High Note Performance is a good shop to buy riding bags as most of the people suggested me to buy it from High Note Performance. High Note Performance is a trusted brand which provides the high-quality accessories for bikes and its riders. Visit the website and find the products of all the top brands related to bikes and its riders.

    I bought Viaterra Seaty a month back and used during my ride to Kodai. Exteremely handy stuff this. Has decent space. Can carry camera, few towels etc.

    Its fairly easy to mount it (as a tailbag) and stable during high speed runs.

    The only issue is when the bag is full and tall, you might entangle your leg while mounting on the bike. This can be embarrassing as I found out
