You guys really like that bag for the DX? I have the same bag and the backrest w/rack, and I'm not a huge fan on the way the bag mounts. It feels too loose to me. I always loop a bungee around it just to be safe...

I mounted a Coocase 48 trunk onto the luggage rack and mounting bracket for the NRS. Used the mounting bracket from Coocase to solid mount to the luggage rack. Just put a Harley sticker on the Coocase emblem and WALA! A Harley trunk for half price. BAM! Check out my Album Mad Dogs VRod.

I ordered the back rest and bracket through my Harley Dealer, and went to have it installed this afternoon. Only to have the delearship tell me it can't be installed without the luggage rack. I tried to explained to them that it can be done but they wouldn't hear it, now I'm stuck with a backrest and mount. Does anyone have pics of the install or what it looks like without the luggage rack? I want to be confident I like the look before I go trying to drill holes in the bike myself.

Back packs aren't an option as I have done before with a CBR I owned and hated it. Despite reading more than several negative comments about the HD stock backrest (upright) and luggage rack, I decided to move forward with both of them due to lack of options. I must say I actually really like the setup I have combined with the HD bag (see pics)
I wasn't excited about adding brushed chrome to a non chrome bike, but the HD bag completely hides all the shine. Total setup cost was much more than I wanted to pay and why I waited so long in serach of other options. Bag was $99, upright and luggage $350 so total package $450.

mounting the day bag

Unfortunately, I only have a mini sissy bar and small luggage rack on my '07... I am afraid this won't work for me without going to a taller sissy bar with a buddy pad. Which is too bad because I really like this. I wish I could see one in person.

I had the backrest and luggage rack installed by the dealer, they did a good job. NOW today I was at the stealership to purchase a small bag. Me and the parts guy tried several on my bike and none of them would fit or mount securely. The sissy bar is just too short, the guy said none of their bags (Harley) would work. Anyone have any suggestions? I just need a small bag to hold odds and ends while running errands. FYI I have a 2013 DX.

I wonder if that small bag would have worked mounting it on the passenger seat instead of the luggage rack? Guess I'm taking another ride to the dealer, it's so inconvenient not having ANY storage.

I went with the Saddelmen R1300XLE, so far it's working out good for me mounting on the passenger pillion and strapping to the luggage rack.

2012 Backrest/Luggage option

Seaman, do you happen to have some pics of the SaddleStow R1300LXE Deluxe Roll Bag mounted on the bike ?

I wonder if it could be used without the rack and attached directly to the HD backrest.

The luggage rack is useless without the backrest.
I got the rack, not the back rest - since I wouldn't use it, dislike the look and don't want the extra weight.
Seven months later, I still can't find a bag that actually fits on the POS luggage rack

Are you kidding me! 80% of you don't post pics, vague descriptions, no DIY photo's, no instructions and some don't even put a photo avatar or a photo gallery of their bike on their profile. What gives? The rest of you I thank for the great followups and visuals!

Some are connecting through their cell, can't you do better than a couple of one liners? Doesn't that Motorcycle.com Free App help any of you at all? I guess I'm old school, cell phone's are for talking and txting other cells. My 28" Quad-core desktop at home is for doing things proper and sooo much easier on the net. I've all ready gotten over using all my investment money to buy the latest and greatest gadget's at insane prices. Now I'm enjoying life, saving a lot waiting a year to buy things at a more reasonable price and waiting till I'm too old to care about the internet. Still...I'll ride till I die!!!

I understand your frustration Mad Dog, I just don't get how someone can get pleasure from surfing the net from their phone. I love nothing more then sitting down on my Herman Miller Aeron in front of my 27 inch Samsung LED monitor, How can a mobile deliver the same experience ?

2012 Backrest/Luggage option

The draw of the mobile access is convenience. The only chance some people have to catch up on a hobby message board or blog is while on the go. Sure you don't get the widescreen desktop experience but at least you can check in.
My 2 cents.
