I dont have the rear seat on mine and use the Joe Rocket tail bag. The straps go around the trunk cover and still allows the trunk to open and close.
Here is the bag I use.

I used to have a place to park my bike until a tree fell on it. Now I have to tarp it and wait on the insurance company to rebuild the garage.

I would be worried about that whole thing flying off, those things do that on their own WITHOUT a bag on them.....

Not trying to jinx ya.... I have a small line tied to the cowl just in case it does decide to go another direction, that way it doesn't get lost altogether.

Let some of our experience help you. I had a cover fly off too. Just make sure your lock mechanism and cable are properly adjusted and you should be fine. I used cheap vinyl tape to cover thevtail while using bags...

I had my cowl go flying off too. It's happened to a few around here. Keep the locking mechanism and latch in real good working order. Or else...
