I ordered a sissybar travel bag. I'm already getting the run around emails from them "will ship in 2 days", then "2 more days", then "will ship in 4 more days", then back to "you will get a tracking number by end of today". Also, their phone is "full".

Oh well...lesson (re)learned.

The only problem I had with mine is that the ring on the top of the bag for the 'back pack straps' nearly completely ripped out the first time I tried to use it - the stitching of the patch holding the ring to the bag isn't good (at least on the bag I got). However, mine has side entry (either side) and that is really handy.

Oh yea, and the rain cover doesn't fit if the expandable side pockets are indeed expanded (seems like a little bigger rain cover would have overcome that problem from the factory, huh?).

Sissybar bag arrived. The box looked like it had went through the gorilla gauntlet on the way but the bag seems ok. The thing IS big. It seems to be pretty sturdy and well built although a snap rivet appears to have separated on the back. Guess I can find something like that at Michaels and redo it. I'll find out how sturdy it is when I start cramming it full this weekend.
