    My wife learned to not set it on the pillion seat.
    After fueling in Vanderpool Texas and heading up the grade, west toward Leaky, my wife looked down at her tank after 10 miles or so, and no tank bag
    She reached back and found the bag still on the seat.
    I also found making 2 U turns on 337 in the tight section is not easy.

    After that, we both set our tank bags on the rider seat when fueling.

    Good on Lee, having systems in place is a must! The military has good reason why tasks are carried out in a current manner the above is an example of that used by a motorcyclist.

    I agree. That was absolutely the best tank bag design ever in the
    history of tank bags. I recently bought a 2017 RT and decided that
    SW Motech’s design was the next best thing. Only very slightly
    fidgety it does provide a clean and secure attachment with close to
    0% chance of marring any painted surfaces.
    It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it.

    I have an RKA Shilo Road 3 on order, looking forward to it, I looked at them a couple rally's ago and am just now pulling the trigger. I used a three point Chase Harper bag on my other bikes for years, pop the rear buckle, tip forward, filler up, drop the bag and "on the road again". Easy as that.
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key

    Loving the Mosko Moto Nomad, running it on 3 bikes. To refuel all I have to do is unclip the front 2 buckles and lift the bag back, takes all of 20 seconds. Unclip 4 buckles to switch bikes, easy peasy.
