It's a Bagster. Maybe that's the secret. Do it whilst on a tunnel crossing.

Was it your first time? If that's not too personal a question. I'm sure it was just easy for me because I'd taken it off a few times alread by then ;)
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

That's normal if you are new to Baglux/Bagster covers.

I resent that comment shorty. They're an absolute pain to fit. Too fiddly.

Only if your old with fat fingers!!!!
