Triumph City Tail Pack - dimensions?

Hope you guys & gals don't mind an interloper from the Sprint & Street Triple forums...thought this would be the best place to ask my question, though.

I'm looking at the Triumph OEM "City Tail Pack" made for the Tiger, for potential use on my Street Triple R. I've done a bunch of searching and know the capacity is spec'd as 10L, but I'm trying to find out the physical dimensions of the pack...can't seem to find these anywhere.

If any Tiger riders out there have A City Tail Pack and could provide the LxWxH measurements, I'll appreciate the help. If you could measure the width at it's widest and narrowest points (since the shape is tapered) that would be especially helpful.

Thanks in advance!

FORUM MODS:
Would one of you mind moving this thread over to the "Tiger Chat" board for me please? Probably makes more sense there, but I can't make the change myself. Thanks!

Thanks for the offer, but no worries - I've already picked one up and it's working nicely on my ST3R!

OK, here's the lowdown. Approx. dimensions are:

L: 15"
H: 5.5"
W: 8.5" front, 12" widest point, 8" rear (the bag has a tapered shape as you can see in photos)

I'm liking it so far. Good for around town, holds my wallet, phone, ipad/book/magazine, etc. I have a bigger tail bag if needed but this one looks nicer on the Streetie for every day use.

You can see I was able to use the supplied nylon straps & hooks for the front; they're looped around the subframe under the seat. I couldn't make the back straps & buckles work, so for now it's a bungee cord. I'll look for a better answer in the future, but this is working fine for the time being.

Hmmm...photos loaded upside down...can't figure out how to change them. Little help from a forum moderator, if possible? Thx!
