Well... I can see how that is a valid point, but, it's the inside of the windshield. You wont be able to see it. Lol.

I have the T-bag one. It's OK but the two side pouches are almost unusable. They're angled and anything you put in there slides down to the outside edge. That makes it hard to get things out of the pouch because they have extra flaps under the velcro lid. It's a hassle trying to get things out of there and I have to take off my gloves do it. So I pretty much just used the center pouch. I finally took mine off and have gone with lower fairing gloveboxes, glovebox liners, and magnetic flaps which I like a lot better. And windshield bags will scratch the inside of your windshield no matter how carefully you install them. Eventually road grime gets behind the bag and works like an abrasive causing scratches. Some folks don't mind scratches, they bug me.

Well... I went down to the stealership and found the HD version of the pouches. They ended up being $100. They're nice. Side pockets button on and they have magnetic flaps. I picked it up and installed it. Looks good. I appreciate everyone's help and input.
