I have been debating getting one of those bags for almost a year. Still can't decide. Looks great though.

It does move back and fourth as you accelerate deccelerate, can feel it touching my back under braking. Not used tail bags before so maybe this is normal or maybe not.

I was thinking about that. I might get a stock pillion seat off eBay and strip all the foam off it and than fasten the bag to the seat pan. Or get a cargo platform that goes where the seat is and fasten it securely to that. I want the option to carry some stuff if needed but in reality I don't mind wearing a back pack and never go out for More than a few hours.

That's strange , I have the same set up & my bag does not move around at all .... very sturdy .

I've got one too (the larger one) and its rock solid. Maybe give your straps a check? Or maybe you accelerate/brake harder than I do? :) )

It doesn't carry a huge amount but for little essentials, its handy.
