Re: Don't buy...

Marc,  Thanks for posting on this.  I haven't lost a bag, but I have 
noticed that the button latch on the top center of the bag loosened up 
over time.  I have snugged it up once, and will keep an eye on it.  You 
need to adjust this button latch bolt so that the center red latch has 
some resistance to it when you latch the bag on.  I suspect this is 
what let loose and allowed your bag to fall off.  You might check the 
other side to confirm this.

I regularly go 250 miles between fill ups.  Max is up over 265 to date. 
  I once went ten miles past the zero miles left warning on the display.
