I remember this being a complaint about the Wunderlich even when it first came out. For whatever reason I never had issues with it. Wunderlich even made a horn guard (eat your heart out, Touratech) to "fix" the problem. I've accidently hit the horn like twice in the last 3 years I've owned the bike, and not for lack of using my steering stops.

And don't get me wrong, it's a great bag. For "road" trips, I'd probably still use it even if I owned something else. It is only annoying in offroad situations where I can't get my weight far enough forward for balance without bending awkwardly at the waist.

- 1 Telephoto lens (70-200 2.5 ISM)
- 1 Sony HD video camera
- 1 fleece sweater
- 1 lens cleaning kit
- 70 business cards
- 4 Spare Camera batteries
- Map
- 1 smartphone
- 2 AA batteries
That's probably more than I want to stuff in it! I think I may be sold.

Edit: and that picture is freaky because that is my exact setup (except the tank bag, obviously), just in different colors. Same jacket, too.
