For touring the bag is good, but offroad I would agree with the others that it does impede movement on the bike somewhat. Ideally I would like a 2nd smaller tankbag for offroad riding and dayrides. In the wet you definately need the raincover which comes with it otherwise it doesn't take long for things inside to get soaked. For the money I would rate it as a good buy.
ok. my local shop has one they will give me a discount on.

question- the top straps... they strap to the fork tubes?
