- The Solo Bag does not work perfectly on V-Rods with mid-controls. Even at a slim 160 lbs, it was rubbing against the back of my leg and ankle.
- The Solo Bag is noticeable when you put your foot down at a stop, for both forward and mid-control models.
- The Solo Bag does not have a built in locking mechanism. It may be possible to use little suitcase locks though.
- The Solo Bag is not waterproof and will take in some water if faced with freeway speeds/sideways rain for extended periods.
We can’t address value without addressing the competition, but at $99, this bag is going to be hard to touch. LaRosa brings on at least three solo bags for the V-Rod on Amazon, but their prices start at $150 and go up to $230. LaRosa is known for top quality leather, but the rustic charm of their bags may not match with the V-Rod’s power-cruiser feel. At $99, Viking Bags is bringing a strong value proposition to customers.
