Need help mounting Six pack bag to FZ07

Recommended Posts

geezer
So here's my dilemma. Before purchasing my bike I would bring my six pack bag to work everyday completely full with meals. Now I'm unable to figure out a way to strap the bag to my bike, does anybody have any idea's? My only other option is to buy the backpack they sell but I would rather keep that $250 for other stuff. 
 
Thanks guys!

It looks like you could utilize the straps under the passenger seat to strap a couple cords/bungees over top of it. Although, which size bag is it? I've seen the large one and it's pretty massive. I'd worry about having something that tall perched on the back toppling over quite easily.
 
Seems like a rear rack would be your best bet, here. You'd need something with a flat base to have any chance of properly mounting it. Givi, Yamaha and a couple others make rear racks. And cost less than the $250 backpack you're eyeballing.

I just use a regular backpack for my meals. YOu can get one of those thermal bags from any grocery store to help keep stuff warm if needed.

I'm packing 4 meals and 2-3 shakes so a normal backpack doesn't really do the job. Plus all the food needs to stay cool throughout the day (I work outside in the sun). I was thinking a cargo net strapped to the underneath part of the rear seat... Can't really find any other good mounting points. The bag I have is the large one (5 meals) so it's pretty tall.

Was looking for dimensions on your bag and saw a pic on the product site of your bag on a Yamaha.... [url=]http://www.sixpackbags.com/expert-innovator-500.html?pixlee_album_photo_id=39453991
 
[/url]Unfortunatly, it does not give any insight on how it is attached but there is an instagram link for the user - you could ask a fellow 6-packer who already figured something out.
 
BTW, @hobbs I think the rokstraps you posted may be what I go with for trying to tie down my golf bag!

Oh wow, it's a lot bigger than my mind's eye had it. A rack behind the seat would sure help.
 
The SW Motech rack has an attachment that's pretty large and flat. The way it mounts to the bike also adds more bungie locations
 
Wonder if a taylor would be able to stitch on some straps w/Fastex buckles to the bottom of tat bag?

I got a reply from the IG user who said he just used a strap on the back seat to fasten a bungee cord around it. I went ahead and bought a pack of the ROK straps and will update with pictures next weekend!

If you criss-cross the straps diagonally thru the handle of that bag, that should be pretty secure. .
