I'm looking for ideas on how to secure a smaller duffle bag onto the back seat of my 08 Jackpot. I have the nubs for bungees on my side trim but when I strap it to them it doesn't hold the bag straight and pulls it forward. If I turn it length-wise it's too long and hangs over the fender.
I have a smaller (fender) bag for day trips that has a slide lock buckle strap that slips under the front part of the rear seat (secures really nice) but it's too small for longer trips!
I'll probably end up getting a luggage rack ($$$) but I need some ideas for the time being.
this looks good acts like a back rest on them long trip and I have the largest one they make and I can get two full faces and them some in it. I will be using it on the XR this summer when the fellas and I take off to Richmond for the Races.
Buzz, it's how the seat sits in relation to the few bungee points that make it a PITA to load gear on the JP.
When I opened the company that was one of the first things I wanted a solution for. Having whatever you strapped on ALWAYS pushing forward on me drove me crazy. THe first solution was to come up with fender struts that would allow me to bungee to them much further back than the standard ones allowed. These did the trick, letting me pull gear to the rear...
Both of these styles do the trick there, regardless of seat style or rack.
The second solution brought about the development of our billet solo racks and quick release driver backrest combinations. This rig allows you to use full size T Bags. Simply slip the pad pocket over the rest, and then use bungees or ties to secure the bag on the sides or the rear to the rack. Your gear is on and off in seconds without having a spider web of bungees to deal with. You can also quickly remove the backrest from the rack when you arrive if you like.
