Even still, I will admit that a handful of my colleagues have commented that they like the way the Blaze setup looks. Functionally, I have only small complaints. Top loading is nice (as opposed to clamshell, like the KTM bags), but the long, narrow opening that unzips is smaller than some objects that will easily fit inside. Being ballistic nylon, deforming the opening to fit a jacket or grocery bag is easy enough, but it feels clumsy. Also, the flap connecting the two bags covers part of the pillion (annoying but not prohibitive), and the setup leaves less room around the passenger footpegs.
