Looking for a bag to put on my passenger seat, something that will fit without scratching the top of the saddlebags. And I do not have either backrest or luggage rack to attach it to. Thanks in advance.

To prevent scratching on the top of the bags and the front of the bags and more use 3M paint proctor film. Its worth ever penny and then some

I've had the medium Motofizz bag for bike trips for almost a decade, and like it a lot: http://www.aerostich.com/medium-motofizz-camping-seat-bag.html (although it was less expensive when I bought mine). This is rugged, waterproof, and has all sorts of ways to pack stuff in or on it. It may be too big for what you want, because it's slightly wider than the back seat; I have the Victory passenger grab rails, so that keeps it off the lids, or you can, as suggested earlier, add 3M coverings. The Motofizz has built-in looped straps. I also use the Motofizz has an airline carry-on, or in the car trunk on certain trips. It is very rugged, capable bag, with lots of room, detachable shaving-kit type of thing, etc. Good stuff.

There are a lot of other bags and companies, of course. It terms of experience, I also have a much smaller Euro-Sport Hauler from RoadGear ( http://roadgear.com/tail-bags-c-23_31.html ). I bought this on sale last year, to go on top of a trunk rack, if I ever put one on. They also have a much larger bag, too. The Euro-Sport is not as rugged as the Motofizz -- lighter material -- and it has built-in bungee cords and hooks.

I had a RevPack tank bag about a dozen years ago, and I can attest that they make high-quality stuff (or at least they did). They sell seat bags, too: http://www.revpack.com/motorcycle/seatbags.html

EDIT: BTW, RoadGear is having a sale, ends today (02/14): 25% off on orders > $50, using code FEB14C

I've got a kuryakyn grantour bag that I used on my M50 for trips and it can be used without a sissy bar. It uses an adjustable mounting pad that you put under the rear seat to secure it.

check out this earlier thread:

luggage suggestions

I posted a picture of a bag I use on my XC that doesn't hit the top of the saddlebags. The bag has 5 strap that perfectly secure to the saddle bad guards and the backrest. I did put the Victory 3M film on the covers of the saddlebags to keep the straps from rubbing the paint.

Oops, just reread and saw you said you have no backrest. no matter, the straps easily configure to loop around passenger grab handles if you have those.

Since you are traveling 1 up, you will have both saddlebags. That is a lot of storage space. If you are not camping, maybe you could try taking less.
Or; try using a few small compression sacks to make your load smaller in the saddlebags.

Looking at the Biker's Friend site that vampyre posted, I noticed they have something called a Phantom Pad Fender Guard for $29.95 (see http://www.bikersfriend.com/pages/fenderguard.htm ). I wonder if you got two of these, if you could then put one on top of each saddlebag lid. That would let you use overhanging seat bags. Just a thought (and the Classic Tour bag does look useful -- I was unfamiliar with it).

Or you could order the Victory saddlebag lid covers they have listed in the latest catalog.
