    Thanks Glen just got back from a test ride and the bag held on(highway with lots of wind at 120 kph and pot holed bumpy town roads)I tried to zoom in on your bike pic's to see how you had the rear straps on but couldn't so i tied the two rear together and with the extra long strap left over took it around between the rear break light and plate holder and velcro closed it.Seem's like a great investment.

    Hi Grizzy,

    Yeah, I simply tie the two rear straps together under the fender in a simple knot that I can undo quickly, works perfectly. The two front straps tie onto the passenger foot peg brackets by first looping them through to make a knot. (took me awhile to figure out how to loop them... I wasn't much of a boy scout!) I hope you get as much enjoyment from your Cortech tail bag as I do. I think it looks great on these bikes, and it's amazing how much stuff it can hold, especially when you unzip the sides to widen it. When I went away for three days last summer for the Ride For Hope charity group ride, I was able to pack all my clothes, etc, plus my camera gear, no problem!

    Hope you're having a great week!

    Glen
