Default Mounting Cortech Tail Bag....Ideas?

I just got the tailbag and the saddle bags but only plan on mounting the saddles for when I need them.

As far as the tailbag goes....any idea how to mount it? I thought I would go to the passeger pegs but I dont like that idea. Anyway in going under the seat and not using the bungies?

Pics would be great in how you mounted yours.

Thanks

I assume you are talking about the sport bag? Here's how I do mine. This was before I got the seat cowl, since then I just shortened the bungies to the proper length and put it on top of the cowl, no issues with the bag moving, scratches, etc...

I still have the stock fender so I hook the rear bungies to the reflector brackets on the fender and I run the front bungies over the side panels and hook them to the inside edge of the plastic surrounding the muffler housing. There's a gap there, you can see it in the picture above, that's big enough to get the hook into. BTW, I have the tail and saddlebag combo too, a great set of luggage. The "sport" bags are definitely not as much capacity as a full-size set of luggage, but has been plenty for a weekend trip and the tailbag works great for running grocery errands.

thanks for the pics...I went straight through the grab handles and hooked at the same place you did...this caused the bag to pull forward since I didnt pass it through BEHIND like you did...if that makes sense.

Im still going to look into a buckle setup that attaches under the seat but until then this will do.

I use the passenger foot pegs for the front hooks, and then loop the rears around the oh crap handles and to the front bungie lines. It's solidly mounted, and didn't damage the paint at all.
