I've removed my pillion pegs and put the tailbag straps thru the sub-frame. Bit of a tight fit on 1 side but easily done.

Also got some microfibre cloth today to get the missus to make some sleeves for the straps, have venture shield on the parts that they touch.

interesting! I think I'll take a look at the subframe, may well be a better, cleaner mounting point.

It is! If I didn't remove the bag so often... that's how I'd have mine mounted permenantly.

I just leave mine on - I tie a knot in them if I'm not using the bag...

Has anyone broken the female end of one of the buckles? I was sinching my straps down and it split on the side. First time using it too.

It doesn't look too bad to slip the side straps under the seat when the bag isn't on the bike. The left side strap is more difficult to push between the subframe and the battery box when installing, so I'll often just leave the straps on.

probably too late for the page 1 purchase consideration, but for the forum, and fwiw, i have the BMW tail bag and a kriega R35. I usually take one or the other but have been able to ride with both no problem. I use the tail bag preferentially and it works great for daily commute and for one or two "overnights". It holds more than you think if you are clever in how you pack. For anything longer, or if I need to lug more stuff (like gym stuff), then I go for the Kriega (or both). I also have a Timbuk2 messenger bag which I sometimes use for quick trips.

When I do, I want to make sure that it is high enough on my back so it won't hit the tailbag if I'm using them both. The tailbag hasn't left any marks on the plastic so far, and I have kept the useless passenger seat to better conform to the shape of the tailbag. I think the seat helps keep the tailbag in place and more off the plastic.

I like Woodcraft products and have his rearsets, case covers, and frame sliders. Since the sliders are designed to stay as close to the frame as possible, the right side does need some slight radii cut into one of the slots as you can see in this picture. Pretty easy to do and not all that noticeable.
