    I have a GS bag on my GSA. After 3-4 years it is faded. The main access zipper has crapped out. I plan to get the zipper replaced and use the bad some more. I want to get the newer EVO GS to replace this, but I went and bought a nice used BMW GS bag that has the old stretch band crappy mount but look pretty and now I'm invested on that for a while, but will probably use the Engage bag again once my local luggage repair/shoe repair guy puts in a new zipper.

    The mount system works great, as intended, a bit stiff to get on and off when overstuffed as it always is at gas stops, etc.

    I tried the electrical ring, but screwed it up when I though the relay wasn't working, and i don't think the little pins are worth much. I now have an SAE wire coming into the bag through a powerlet port and that works great for charging lots of stuff at the same time, like iPhone, iPad and even my Sena when it runs down which is never.

    The engage bag I had faded a little but quickly sagged and started making contact with the finish. I never packed it full, wallet and a bottle of water. It was the model that had the same contour as the tank, that is where it sagged. I went back to my Big Mack setup.:clap

    Interested in selling? I've been wanting a City :deal

    I have an Engage now and concur with most of the comments...I love the system. I've had a little sagging with mine but I tend to overload it regularly (hence looking for a City for a little more capacity). It's been dead reliable and very well made. Faded but not worn. Great design that has made me hate straps.
