Bought a tail bag to hold my lunch, night time visor among other things. Just wanted to share my experience on the bag and installation.

I fed the straps under the tail frame.

The bag does extend about an 1 inch out in front of the seat but it does not affect me on my riding position. Only time will tell if I have to somehow find a way to scoot it back.

When not in use I found I can place them inside the trunk and hid them

Fits all my stuff with some room to spare. The bag does expand but I didn't need to. Wrapped in the microfiber towel is my visor.

I hope this helps my 500 riders out there ride a bit more comfortably. This does beat wearing a backpack every day hands down. This bag does turn into a backpack as well. Quality of the bag seems okay nothing has really stood out in terms of build quality. Link will be provided below, thanks!

Ooo, clever running the straps under the rear subframe under the seat. I hadn't thought about doing that with tail bag straps, but it's a nice, clean solution.
Yup works okay, if I were to change anything is I would run them higher toward the end of the tail. Only because I like to scoot way back in the seat when I ride.
