    Are you going to finally bring out a tank bag with an integrated weather resistant power cord port like I suggested to you many moons ago?

    If there is a bigger one coming, it should definitely have the word Colossus in its name!

    Exactly what I wished the GL would do. Roll down, compress and become waterproof. I knew there was a reason I waited. Put me on the list for one as soon as your ready. Congrats.

    Please add me to the list.

    Also, I agree with Montery_BS on the size of the logo. I like and want reflective material on the bag, but personally I find the logo way too big. Last year in a jacket forum someone mentioned Icon's Patrol jacket; I really liked the look and it's features, but finally decided against it because I just didn't like the size of the logo; especially on the back of the jacket. Perhaps a dumb reason not to get it, but I knew it would bug me.

    Very cool Wachs, this is such a great design. Having the gear hauling capacity and the easy access for essentials with the low center of gravity and all super waterproof makes this a must do for sure, sign me up!

    Thanks for being there and making such a difference in our sport! Can't wait to see what's next, ooh fun...

    I think it's a bit in-your-face-large as well and I'd black sharpie over it for a bit more stealth mode.

    Out of all of the soft bag/horseshoe bags I've seen this is the only one I'd consider from the few photos that are out there.

    Please post up some pics of it cinched up tight with minimal day trip gear.

    Looks great though and I really like the out of the box thinking you've put into this.

    I'm waiting to see a new possible tank bag, and I'll toss in 2 cents...

    I get that a logo is in part how your product gets "known", but I tend toward logo free. How about "stealth" logos, made with black but reflective material?

    Logo looks great. I don't cover up my bikes ktm logo, so why cover up brand of anything used? Represent it yo!

    Given that the bag is a big black hole (visually) on the bike, I'm good with a large, bright logo to break things up (and help attract motorist attention). I reckon that the logo will be less "in your face" on the more brightly colored bags that I assume are to come.

    I was musing this over and thinking one novel naming scheme you could use for the new line of luggage is a take off on the horse shoe shape of the main rear bag using names associated with good luck and fortune--The jackpot, the rabbit's foot, the 4 leaf clover, the good karma, buena fortuna--lots of possibilities there. If that doesn't work for you I think "Wachs Sacks" has a nice ring to it.

    Biggest issue with the Coyote is the need for a rear tie point. The bag weight flops forward on the seat going downhill. Worse if a top dry sack is mounted.

    Got that covered?

    does yours not have the metal clips on the rear mount straps? i've had mine on a few different bikes and it's never come loose.

    oh, and if my coyote ever wears out i know what i'll be getting next! i'm really digging the external tool pouches
