Looking for a picture of Bag Connection Day Pack

Hi folks. I'd like to see a picture of the Bag Connection Day Pack mounted on a 1000 (650 would probably be ok) and with the rider sitting on the bike. Does anyone have a picture like that?

I currently have the City bag which is great, but seriously blocks the air flow. In the south in the summer, it's all about air flow.:mrgreen:

There are actually two versions in the photos.
The one on my red Wee is the older model that has a built in map holder. The one on the blue Wee is the newer model that now uses that standard accessory map holder that clips on to all of the SW Motech bags. BTW The last photo shows the bag fully expanded.

I'm not sure what the OP means about restricting air flow. I have a City bag and a Day bag and have ridden with both in temps over 100F. I can't say that I've noticed any air flow differences with the bags fitted or not fitted. The Day Bag is a great size for a spare pair of gloves, wallet, phone and small camera. It's the bag I use most often.

Sweet. I didn't know the previous model had a built-in map holder. I have a Daypack II that I got specifically to carry my gloves, extra glasses and those other little things I don't want in my pockets in case I decide to get intimate with the pavement but I had to get that clip on map holder for it.

I was looking to get an Engage by next season for the extra capacity on longer rides. How do you like that City on the Strom? Does it fit the tank well?

Well, it may be relevant as one never knows when they may need to haul a full-grown head of cauliflower! Best to be prepared!

Thanks for the pics guys. That's exactly what I was looking for. It's been my experience that the Day Bag blocks some of the air flow to my stomach and chest on a hot day. I notice the difference, especially when wearing a mesh jacket. I do have a Madstad bracket and can tilt the windshield so that the air does come right in towards the tank bag.
