Awesome, this is exactly what I was looking for. I ordered a large and I also ordered one of These. I figure I would try it out and if it doesn't work on my 800 I will give it to my brother's wife for her Monster.

I've got 2x30 litre Overboard bags, they are so similar to the Ortliebs I wouldn't be surprised if they came out of the same factory. They were £31 delivered for both together and have survived two 300 mile motorway journeys in pouring rain without a drop of water coming in.

I use a 35L Ortlieb dry bag. They are what everyone used when I used to white water kayak. It's a good bet when they keep stuff dry when you sink a boat that they'll be okay on the back of a bike. Unlike many made-for-motorcycling "waterproof" products. It's far cheaper than motorbike-specific products too.

It's a good shape, two Rokstraps tie it down securely across the pillion seat.
I like my bike because I can overtake 4x4s down farm tracks with a week's worth of shopping on the back.
