Handle bar bag - alt location
I bought a handlebar bag to carry some small items. However, it is too big to fit on the stock bars (see pic A for relative size), and wouldn't look all that great anyway.

I was thinking I could mount it on the back (see pic B) Any ideas on how to do that properly?

Pic A:

Pic B:

Pic B shows the back of the back, which has two buckles (only one shown) to secure bag. Buckles on front hold the bag shut.

I got it hooked up. After about 50 ideas and 4 days of over-thinking it.

Solution - Bungee cords with toggle balls (local Ace Hardware $7.99)


Shot from inside the bag with total of 3 cords used:

Two cords attached to each side of saddlebag rack. And one cord slipped under pillion seat and hooked across the back bolt.
