I first purchased the Saddlemen s3500s from Dennis Kirk last year and like the bag so much, that when my wife wanted to get another bag for her motorcycle, I suggested getting another Saddlemen s3500. My bike has studs, so I got the bag with the studs and her bike doesn't have studs, so I purchased the same bag without the studs for her. This bag has many compartments, open from the sides, has a rain cover built right in. Yes it is big, but holds most everything we need for a weekend or week riding.
I shopped around quite a bit for just the right bag. After looking at many options, the S3500 was the best choice. I was rather surprised just how large it is. Really appreciate Dennis Kirk having USPS as a shipping option too. UPS is a pain where I live and being able to have it shipped USPS made all the difference.
Just got this bag in the mail and I have to say I am IMPRESSED! They really thought of everything with this puppy. Has lots of compartments and a ton of room for everything. Extremely well made and the frame is very sturdy so using it as a backrest, if you put it on your pillion seat, should not be a problem.
Bag comes with several extra straps so you can carry everything, even includes a couple mini padlocks, and the rain cover is awesome!
I may have to update this review after testing it out on a 1,200 mile roadtrip, but as far as out of the box impressions I am extremely satisfied.
Oh yeah and denniskirk got the thing here in record time!
Just finished a 4-day trip with the bag. My helmet, boots, leather jacket, chaps, rain gear, and clothes all fit in here. Mounted to my 2010 FXD with ease and was secure while riding. The bag came off easy to bring into the hotel. Definitely a great product.
I LOVE this luggage! I have used Saddlemen for my seating and saddlebags. They are superior products and look great together on my 2010 FatBob. The materials in the luggage are first rate. All snaps and zippers are brute strength. You wont be disappointed.
I looked at H-D, Kuryakyn, etc. and found this set up to be the most reasonably priced & voluminous bag out there. It is easy to put on the bike (ignore all others who have confusion issues with the straps-c'mon! they're just straps) it holds TONS of stuff & I'd buy another one for longer trips IF I could get two on my bike. Extremely well made, I love it!
Just received and installed the s3500 sissy bar luggage. It is just as described on the Dennis Kirk site. I always ride one up so I installed it to sit on the passenger seat on my Shadow Sabre. Installation was easy enough, instructions were easy to follow. It is a well constructed bag with the separate top roll bag included-a nice plus. I thought it a bit pricey, but it is the largest capacity bag I've found and durable enough to last many years. In the past, I've had a bungied jungle behind me on long trips. Now this bag will hold it all.
Very good quality and style. Bag is large, and should be used with a luggage rack for sure. I called Saddlemen and they said a luggage rack wasn't necessary. I guess it's not, as long as u are in the market for a new rear fender paint job! Went ahead an ordered the rack, and it works great. Good stability and sturdy mounting options. Overall great product.
LOVE this bag!! Looked at everything out there,it came down to this or the BR3400. I can't say anything more than the description says, except I'm very happy with my purchase and Dennis Kirk had the lowest price going -PERIOD. I checked! There was a STRONG chemical smell coming from the bag. I aired it outside for several days and it subsided a little. Any clothing in the bag would retain this smell. I realize this is no one's fault,but I hope it goes away soon.I wonder, in between uses while being stored, would it take on this smell again. --Hope not.
