I have the “Lazy Rider” bag myself, and I really like it. Not as many size choices as the Biker’s Friend, but I like some of the small features better, and the cost is also less than even the smallest of the BF’s.
Here’s a link:
And to see the large size (12″) diameter bag on a Vulcan 500, here’s a picture:

Yea for another Vulcan 500!August 10, 2009 at 12:25 pm #21443
That’s looks good Aggie. Way bigger than I need to bring home a 6 pack but still even as big as it is the bike profile still looks good!August 10, 2009 at 4:29 pm #21452BenParticipant
I have a Givi case which I love. It locks closed and also locks to the bike to prevent theft. Probably more sportbike appropriate though, wouldn’t look too good on a cruiser.

I still go the ghetto route.
I have a bungee net ($3 at ocean state job lot) and and an cheep skateboard backpack ($15 at wally-mart).
I use the buckles on the back to keep a bungee net attached to the backpack and then bungee it to the passenger seat. Used to carry it on my back but realized it blocked the air vents on the back of my jacket, and also when carrying all my work crap could cause fatigue on long rides.
Works out well because it allows me to quickly and easily stow my jacket in the bag and walk around with all my gear while my bike is parked. Just a thought for newbies who are a little strapped for cash.
