    I know of one by KTM and Wolfman (any preference?).

    Any other recommendations?

    Thanx

    Wolfman Explore Lite.

    Move it between the SE and Buell. Durable and works.

    I like this one since it sits between the fuel filler caps. No need to remove the bag when getting gas (Wolfman Explorer Lite).

    This is what we use, plenty of room if you need it or packs down nice and small with the cross strap and it IS waterproof.

    As a real time pic this is it fitted on our SE for reference, in there is a Klim inferno warm top, bottle of water, papers, camera and bunch of other other stuff that just lives in there.

    If it interests you and you want some closeups just lemme know.

    It's the most versatile bag I've had on the 990. I haven't seen anything better for everyday use on long trips.
    Also doesn't interfere when off road while standing up.

    +1. Perfect size, not too big, can stand with no problem.

    Wolfman is the best one.

    I have the Enduristan S2, it is 100% waterproof and readonably small, really very very good.

    + 3 or 4 for the Explorer lite. I've used mine for 4 years and it's still in good shape, and it does not interefere with the gas caps.

    +3 for Giant Loop's Diablo. Well made, heavy duty materials, can purchase another base and swap bag between bikes, small enough to not interfere while standing. Only thing that sucks is waterproofing seams yourself.

    +1 for the large expedition Wolfman. I find it just fine standing up and it fits between the tanks perfectly. It is a bit floppy if underloaded but I'm very happy with mine so far.

    Same, I am not a big guy and I find it easy as, even when climbing steeper stuff.
