Just got my Bar Bag today and thought I'd show everyone how it looks on the bike. I purchased it as the "Bikers Friend" bar bag. When it got here, I noticed it was made by Kuryakn. Anyway, here's a couple of pics. Looks roomy and includes a rain cover.

Have you rode with it yet? That third shot taken from the rear of the bike makes me think it might obstruct your view of the road immediatly in front of you a bit. Is that a problem?

Hmmm, yea... I actually like that bag and have been thinking about getting it for awhile for short trips... might invest in one here soon. Thanks for the pics btw! Bike is looking sharp!

You think it might scuff up the headlight, or at the very least rub on the faux chrome, dulling it?

I like it though. Seems a viable option.

Hey Stickman if you're worried about scuffing on your headlight you can get some window cling and stick it to the light before you put your bag on and it won't hurt your chrome. It will work on fenders or your tank too. :cool: I like the bag for an option to carry stuff on a long trip but I have a wife carry my shit on her bike right now. :D

After a test ride, here are my obervations. The bag stays put and only touches the headlight about one square inch... there's a rubber hand grip that tucks under the bag between the the top of the headlamp as well. Visibility is good all around except for about 2 feet right in front of the bike... if something comes that close from the side, you'll see it, as far as obstructing the forward view, I don't think it's a problem.

This bag is for traveling, not a permanent fixture... hopefully it won't scratch the top of he light but if it does after my trip to the left coast, I'll let you know.

It may very well fit below the light but then you may have an issue with it resting on the fender.. haven't tried that or in the "dead space" because I like it where it is.

I plan on buying the large "Bikers Friend" roll bag for the back.....

Hey ya'll,

I put the Cannella Risers on and now the bag doesn't touch the light at all.. the rubber bag handle rest on it, that's it. It also is off the instrument cluster. I'll try to post a pic or two....

Looks good. Obviously not as a permanent fixture, but I'm definitely going to look into getting one for long hauls. Thanks for sharing.
