Moots Tailgator?

Does anyone have experience using the Moots Tailgator? If so, I'm wondering:

1. is it secure and stable while riding, especially in turns?
2. is there leg interference?
3. was the overall experience good or not so good?

I bought one when it first came out. Design, materials and execution excellent. Stability good. Capacity limited in volume and by weight limit. I used it on a mountain tandem for the stoker's use and on a single bike for road day rides. Pricey for what it is but useful.

http://banjobrothers.com/products/cu...-saddle-trunk/ even less. I looked at a few of these high capacity seat bags for upcoming unicycle tours.

RJMang, I've never heard a single complaint about any Moots product. I'm sure if you aren't happy with it they will fix it, or refund you.

The R&K look nice, but I can't have plastic on anything, it bugs me to no end
