Anyone with the OEM tall windscreen using a windshield bag setup? If so, what did you use and how did you mount it? I am looking for a better solution for my sunglasses and other small stuff I want to carry with me. I do have some saddlebags on the way, but looking for something with quick and easy access.
Let's see those photos if you have them.

just a thought....I am an avid cyclist and there are a ton of "bike packing" bags available that mount to bicycle frames and handlebars. perhaps one of those would be acceptable to mount across the windshield supports?? Google would be your friend in this instance. I have no idea which models or brands would work for this application, but it is another resource to explore...

Looks like I will have to make something work for attaching a windshield bag. There is just nothing out there designed for the bike. I am not against zip tying the bag to the windshield bracket if need be. But there are hundreds of them to choose from and I have to decide how wide and deep I want. I have found a couple that I may be able to get to work pretty easily. Single bag? Three bag? Lots of options. I am in no hurry so I will find something. May be time to look at a few local dealerships/leather stores to see what is available. Thanks for the alternate idea.

The Dowco Willie & Max 59513-00 Revolution Series, Amazon, was the only one I found that would fit between the Honda Tall windshield brackets. I made new holes in the back of the bag to line up with the shield mounting screws and used them to secure the bag. For other items, gloves, sunglasses, cameras etc, I use the Cortech Super 2.0 24-Liter Motorcycle Tail Bag on the passenger pylon. I install the saddlebags for overnighters only.

Best of luck.

What saddlebags do you use?

I am looking for the same solution...zip tie is good call! Even my old Kymco scooter used to have some kind of a glove box that was very convenient for the small stuff.

I got the bag from eBay.
The foot pegs are a stretch with the Corbin seat. I have 32" inseam and barely reach. OEM seat is 1/2-2" closer. The Giving A660 is a little narrow.

For now I have found this little bag to work. Still looking for a windshield bag, but this will hold me over for a bit. Just a place for my phone and garage door opener.

I have my garage door opener hanging off the left lower windshield bracket. works great. and if you wrap the bracket with electrical tape it will not leave a mark....

After not being able to find what I considered a suitable windshield/handlebar bag I decided to try something different. I'm interested to hear the opinions of others. It's not as convenient, but it gives me a place (or two) to carry small stuff. I'm referring to just the two small blue bags...not the black one on the luggage rack. Let me hear it...good or bad. Thanks.

Had a little problem with my account so this post took a week to actually appear. Bumping it up so people will see it. Looking for feedback.

They are a very practical solution for small stuff. I worry that eventually those fabric straps will cause wear on the handles. And not a bad color match. Myself, I would go with saddlebags, which look more like a motorcycle. These are more suited for a bicycle. But they don't look bad. If they work for you, why not! I also use a tiny Sedici magnetic tank bag for cables, registration, and other small stuff. It hangs on well even at speed.

I had the chance to buy one already equipped with saddlebags, but I decided I wanted to keep this bike a little leaner. I have a GW trike and trailer that we use for long trips so I didn't see the need, but I did buy a large bag for the backseat when I take a solo trip for e few nights. Thanks for the comments.

They look great! Not too big, perfect size and quick access to the smaller things we carry. The color is a bonus for you as well. Clean simple look matches your bike (y)
