I use endless ratchet straps to secure luggage/tents/coolers. I pushed and shoved the luggage to check it and it didn't budge. You can cut them to the size you need.

You can always get a sissybar. The OEM one is pricy but if you're handy you can always make brackets to fit a generic one. But to be honest if you're hauling gear don't cut corners. Dropping gear on the freeway can suck. Ask my how I know.. 😉

This is what I use, sits straight across my Corbin seat, roll top and 100% waterproof.

Two of these crossed over attached to the grab rails, bag doesn't move an inch.

Other bags in the same range, they clip on top of each other to give additional space, works a treat.

Had a guy make a rack for the top box a while back, all the storage space I need, no wide panniers sticking out.

Reviving an old thread.

I'll post what I plan to be using this coming Summer to add to the storage capacity of my OEM saddlebags and OEM tail bag.

It's a 70-liter duffle bag that will sit on my pillion seat (I have a 25-liter one too) and is well constructed and waterproof. Right now the 70-liter holds my tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, bug bivy, 5x7 tarp, sheath knife, hand hatchet, and fire starter kit. If my clothes packing cubes & dob kit fit I won't have to use the 25-liter one. I'm not taking a stove or utensils.

My packing mantra is "wear & a spare". Works well with modern synthetic socks and underwear which are nightly washed out and dry by morning while camping or moteling.
