Comments On Apr 28, 2014:Bought this to use on my 2006 Honda CRF 250x. There are several other brands making a "number plate" bag and I looked at them all before deciding to give the Moose one a try. The main reason I went with the Moose, is it has buckles that can quickly release the bag, the other brands many people complained that once they were on, they were a pain to remove. I wash my bike after every ride, so I wanted something I can easily remove and the Moose was the only one with complete quick buckles. Now once it arrived I felt the quality was good, nice construction, good material (not the best nylon but still quite good), good zippers, nice pockets and some padding in the front. The problem however came when I tried to mount it to my 250x. The 250x has a front light/number plate that sticks out a lot further than a typical mx number plate. This means the bag has to sit further away. Wanting to mount it above my head light was a challenge. The straps on the Moose bag just needed to be a few more inches and it would be good. Mostly the issue is with the bottom straps not being long enough. Granted I bought the last years model and I see they have put out a new model, so maybe it has longer straps. I ended up finding a way to mount it using the "number plate pocket" on the back of the bag, stretched over the top of my headlight plastic, and with the straps at the longest setting i was able to get it on. Its quite tight and stable and will do the job of holding small stuff. I considered returning it but the price was cheap so I kept it and will use it.
Additional Comments On May 12, 2014:I wanted to add to my review as I was able to use this Moose bag for 1 week of riding in Moab. The bag held up very very well. It was great to have quick access (camera, sun screen, maps) right on the bike. I took way more photos then I have in the past having the quick access number plate bag. The bag stayed in place over very long days and never bounced around. I still will say I wish they had longer straps as it barely fit on my 250x with headlight, for this I drop 1 star. Once in place it was great however. I do wonder if their 2014 model has longer straps? All in all , well worth buying, glad I have this bag now.

Comments On Aug 19, 2012:if u ride over rocky terrain the straps rip easily when the bag is full. my numberplate has the strap for the handle bar pad so the trail pack cannot slip over the numberplate so i just strap it to the handlebars and forks and it stays put for a while. i carry an extra front tube, replacement levers, replacement clutch perch and a 25ft tow strap.
