opinion on windshield bag

I'm looking to purchase a 3 compartment bags for my dash on the ultra. Narrowed it down to the HD model or the T-bags version that looks to be contoured to the top of the dash.

Anyone have either of these and pros/cons on them? Thanks in advance,

Re: opinion on windshield bag

I have had my T bag pouches for about a year and I really like them...Great for putting glasses and other small articles in.

Re: opinion on windshield bag

I don't have the Tbag or the three pouches on my windshield. I just have the one HD hard pouch on my windshield and I utilize it a lot. I have my sun glasses in there as well as my garage door opener fastened to the inside lid. I keep a small micro fiber towel in there for wiping my glasses. I keep pocket change in there as well. I also keep a Post It pad & a pen in a Zip Lock bag in there so if I visit someone and they're not home I can jot down a quickie note to them explaining that I was there. So as you can see, those little pouches come in real handy. Probably for their easy access. Oh yeah, one more thing, when I fill the bike up with gas, I take the plastic gas cap and turn it upside down and place it in there while I am filling the bike up. It's a lot easier than holding it in my hand. I mean, where do you that thing when you're pumping gas? Works for me.

Had the HD three pocket on the EG and found it scraches the windshield up from rubbing I even used extra dots that came with the bag too prevent it but still it rubed. When I replaced the shield I took the bag off.

Re: opinion on windshield bag

I do not have any windshield bags. I think it detracts from the looks of the bike and just another thing in the way looking through windshield. Always wondered about the rattle aspect if the bags rattle against upper dash or items in them rattle. As some have said it can be a great convenience or annoyance. So choose wisely.....

I have the single version on mine; however, be aware... it will scratch up your windshield.
