Wondering the exact same thing. I like what I have read but sure would like to hear first-hand how it works.

I like wonder-lick (LOL!) stuff, but that bag is pretty spendy for what you get, IMHO.

Agreed. But I would love to use that space rather than on the tank or on the tail. Seems ideal for weight distribution if you are not inclined to lean over a tank bag. And I don't want to leave the alum panniers on there unless I need to cavernous space they offer.

Just found this one and order the standard black version. Figured if I am going to spend that kind of money, it would make sense to get something that locks and is completely water-proof. And I like the idea that my EZPass thing can be left in there.

There are plenty of waterproof duffel bags in every possible size for 1/5 of the price of this bag.

But you can't stop and whip a camera or your gas card or a pair of sunglasses out of a duffle bag, can you? :)

Right now I'm reasonably happy with my tank bag, a wolfman enduro. But it's a bit small and I prefer to not hump a bag when I stand. It's also a nuisance when I hit the gas pumps.

But this Wunderlich is a tail bag, not a tank bag.

Have a look at the BMW Sport Bag2. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=777659

The Wunderlich products are good, but 15L max. is small for me. The 19L Sport Bag2 is also a little small but think maybe it expands to 35L.

Cheers

OK, when you said "to whip a camera" I imagined taking taking a cam out of a tank bag, and snapping a picture without getting off the bike, but you had in mind something different.
I agree, you can't quickly take the things out of fully waterproof duffel bag, but you'll need to make a choice between convenience and waterproofing. If the Wunderlich was fully waterproof and easy to get into it could be worth the asking price. But on the bottom of their description they say that the bag is not fully waterproof.
Recently I had to ride a miserable day in a downpoor. I had this bag http://www.thewaterproofstore.com/dpd2gr.html strapped to the rear seat. The main compartment is rollup, and it has packets with waterproof zippers and flaps over the. By the end of the day one of the packet had a half an inch of water in it. I wouldn't risk it with Wunderlich.
