    THANKS Scooter ... Yeah, I didn't put a link to their web site. But since you have, Thanks again.

    I really wanted to see the OD Green/Khaki bag, cause I figured the dust wouldn't show up as much ....... but my dealer said they would have to order it & I wouldn't get a discount .... BUMMER !! ........ But he gave me a hell a deal on this black bag & I think it looks pretty good on the camo bike. :great:

    Great review and I really like the styling of the bag. Will def consider this bag. It is a little pricey but I think after your initial ride to test it out you will find it more dust and dirt and water proof. One question though. Is there any interior pockets or is it just dividers?

    THANKS Woodbooger Guy !! Yes, there are some mesh pockets at the back & on each side of the bag. You can kind of see the mesh in the photo where I'm showing how I packed my saw. :great:

    Can't wait to go rid'in & "Test" the bag out next week !! :wav:

    Thanks for the review Gunny! I added a link to their site in your review also. They have some pretty nice looking bags on there.

    Good To Go Butch .... the bags are much nicer then the photo's show. However, so are those OGIO bags like HarcoreSlot reviewed. But these bags have a few more features & are a little larger (or the Bazook Bag is) for about the same money. :great:

    Time will tell if I'm as pleased with this "Bag" over a "Hard Box" .... however, I'm thinking I'm really going to enjoy this bag ... and it just "Fits" my needs & the "Look" I was after with the bike ....... SAVVY ??!! .... :headbang:

    Gunny, thanks for the review.
    I see they have a smaller bags as well in their offer.
    Bazooka might be to big for me but the skyline looks pretty good.

    You bet Grizzly guy !! ... And Yes, the Bazooka Bag is large and I almost went with the Skyline ... it's just my dealer had the Bazooka in stock & it works pretty darn good on MY bike with that aftermarket rear bumper.

    Bazooka Bag Update

    Took the bike out for a good ride yesterday and gave the bag a good "Dust" test.

    These first photo's are of the bag after 30 miles ... I was pretty impressed that no dust got under the "Lid" ...

    Then later, after about 60 miles of dusting riding, bouncing around, & some rain squalls ... I stopped again to check the bag out ... Pretty Impressive ... to me anyway.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Then this morning I gave the bag it's first washing. I was usning the hose & a nozzle with pretty strong pressure. The bag came out looking "Not To Bad" on the outside ... but some mositure did get inside ... so I had to remove everything so the bag can dry out. And I also learned, I need to buy some Zip-Top baggies to keep things in I don't want to get wet.

    I could ride around with the rain cover on all the time ... or I may get some camo cordura material & make an "Everyday Cover" ... but overall, I'm still pretty darn pleased with this "QuadraGear Bazooka Bag". :93:

    Well, actually MrNagasaki ... I'm have had a couple more, I only have four currently in my possession. And like bags, it all depends on how you plan to use the box. By that I mean, mostly for day rides carrying only TP, snacks & drinks ... or like me ... out there a LONG ways from the truck ... needing a few tools, rain gear, etc & some survival gear incase you have to spend the nite .... or two ... out in the woods.


    I really like the Tamarack Classic Front Box for short rides ... but I never take "Short" rides, so I've never used this box as the only one on the bike.
    http://www.tamarackatv.com/products/products_boxes_frontbox.html



    For longer trips & to carry everything, I like this Plano box. Wish I had never sold it. And I may buy another one & sell all my other boxes.
    http://www.midwayusa.com/product/19...ge-box-39-1-2-x-20-1-2-x-12-3-8-polymer-black



    I've also been looking at this box for winter riding with my tracks. Cause they will bury everything in snow & I'm a little hesitant to use the Bazooka Bag come winter.
    Not sure if I want to get the box with the top rails or not however ...
