Nice bag. Do you have a standard FJR luggage rack? Are you riding solo? I am much more comfortable with something that attaches to my passenger seat than the luggage rack, but then I am a nervous nelly. My round Moto Centric bag attaches to the rear seat, and if I set it up right, also pushes into my lower back a little which I love, but it doesn't hold near as much as that one you are looking at.

I lost my round Moto Centric bag rain cover on my last trip when I hurriedly put it on when it had started raining. If anyone has a rain cover they think would fit it i would gladly buy it from you.

I live an hour and a half away from Asheville, NC. If you have trouble when you are in my area my number is Phil 561-572-7153, I have a trailer, a tire changer and a garage. Keep me in mind.

Thanks a lot.....
What a pal...Ö.


To answer your question.
Yes.
You are supposed to have the option of mounting to rear seat.
And that's what I prefer.
No co-rider.

I have an older Nelson Rigg mounted on rear seat but not strapped to the seat, they make nice luggage. I think that one you are looking at would be great. I use a Touratech rack behind that just for very light extras once in a while.

Nice set up there. Can you tell me the name of the back luggage rack you installed?
Thank you

Here's a pic of the Saddleman tail bag I use. It has a pad that stays strapped to the seat and quick releases to hold bag to the pad.
