You might be able to attach the straps to the underside of the seat. You just need to prevent front to rear movement. If you strap them together, left and right movement will only rotate the bag at most.

The fairings thing wasn't that bad. It's that had to take them apart over and over again because I did something wrong: seat wouldn't latch, missed some screws, etc. and I was getting hot.

I have a question about the Kriega bag system. Do you typically leave the bag on the bike, or remove it when you go inside? I see that there are the plastic buckles on the top of the bag that the straps connect to, and then there are the metal hooks on the end of those that connect it to the straps that go under the seat. It looks like it would be easiest to just disconnect the bag at the plastic clips, but then the straps would be left behind and could be swiped by someone since they are not securely attached. However, it looks like it would be more difficult to take the bag on/off each time using the metal part of the straps.

I most often leave the bag on the bike. If I take it off, I usually disconnect it at the metal hooks. You could disconnect both the clips and the hooks, and tuck the straps inside the bag. It's pretty easy to reconnect it.

HI, I'm new here but thought I'd chime in. I have a little mini tank bag that is magnetic, no straps required. It holds my iPhone, a baseball cap, a 12 oz. bottle of water, a couple of granola bars. Pretty handy, doesn't get in the way and easily removed for rest or fuel stops. About $25 on Amazon. I don't even notice it while I'm riding.

Got myself this China made and brand tail bag named "Rough and Ride". Looks awesome when attached to the pillion seat. The bad thing is the zipper sucks. Malfunctioned when the tail bag is not even one year old. Bought it at $30USD.

Well, you pay peanut, you get peanut.

Hey Kerry! My hubby and I just rolled by your town last weekend. We were on the train, not our bikes. Thanks for the welcome!

Hmm, I may go with big lock box. I'd like to stuff helmet, gloves, boots, and 1-piece textile suit into something that stays with bike. Don't want to carry all that stuff around.

Just bought a magnetic tank bag from Cycle Gear and a couple of thigh bags. Gonna see what works. I've been taking the Kriega bag off the bike and in with me most of the time lately, so I'm trying a couple of options that seem even easier to pull. None are particularly large, the Kriega holds more, but we'll see.

I bought the "Dowco Rally Pack Value" luggage set for my EX500 in 2012. Saddlebags, tailbag, and magnetic tankbag for $130. I think I test-fit the three rear bags once, and haven't touched them since. But I use the tank bag almost every time I ride and need to carry something that won't fit in my pockets. https://smile.amazon.com/Dowco-50106.../dp/B000GU29ZS The top flap has a clear plastic map pouch on the outside and zippered net pouch on the inside. There's also a quick-connect keyring inside, and an attached rain cover. It does include straps if you'd rather mount it that way.

The magnets are enclosed inside the panels of the bag, so I've never had any issue with it harming the paint. Rarely, the two magnets in a side flap will stick to each other, folding the flap in half, and you kind of have to pull them apart. When it's not on the tank, the flaps fold underneath and stick to each other (leaving the bottom a nice little flat rectangle). It's not even that big a deal to temporarily take it off to refuel, obviously dependent on exactly what you have inside it at the moment. It fit a lot better on the large, flat top of the 500's tank, but I can still manage to make it work on the 400 too.

It will hold a ~10" round takeout dish or both halves of a Jersey Mike's giant sub (it's mostly been used for getting lunch lately). It will hold a few bottles of water, your phone, Kindle, wallet, etc. It might fit a small ultrabook, but it won't hold a regular laptop. I'm in IT so I constantly tote my laptop around, and use a Swissgear backpack specifically for that (whether or not the bike is involved). That's also big enough to toss a pair of shoes in, so I can change out of my riding boots after commuting on the bike.

I also bought a random thigh bag off eBay years ago. The thinking was that it was like a mini-backpack that would be a little more portable, and less in the way while riding. Similar to https://www.ebay.com/itm/403569776558. I'd say it's about fanny-pack size. You're not going to get a ton of stuff in there, but it's better than tiny/non-existent pockets, but still attached directly to you. It has the main pouch, a smaller zippered pouch on the outside, the keyring quick-connect, and the bungee cord on top. Once again, seemed like a good idea, but I never ended up actually using it.

Someone on the 400 forum posted about https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VW776KH/ as a seat-mounted tailbag. If you don't carry a passenger, this might be more convenient than a tankbag.

It's not huge, but is large enough for small items or lunch or bottled water, and it is claimed to be WATERPROOF too.

here's a pic of My cheap answer to the baggage delima....
it's a plastic box from harbor freight tools bolted to a rack that I bought off Amazon
although I haven't really loaded it up and gone for a hard ride on it yet I think it looks quite capable of doing the job....
....(sorry the picture is sideways Phitttt!)

it works but man it's the 10th degree in UGLY ! maybe green paint will help but I doubt it.... it's so ugly it turns my stomach every time I look at it
I think I'll take it off and use the backpack strapped to it !
something like that might go well UNDER the bike though i wonder if it would fit? LOL
