That looks sweet. I have the backrest / luggage rack for when the wife rides, but also saddle bags for my commute.

In case you're wondering, yes, that cushion is the lumbar support. You can also mount this bag in front of the sissy bar and it will provide lumbar support for you. :) This is what I've been looking for, so great vid. There's another one here that shows what I'm talking about:

I posted the video on YouTube to show how great this setup is.

I looked this bag up and it saying it can be mounted under a passager seat so no sissy bar needed . Can this be done on the stryker as I dnt have a sissy bar n bit low on cash. I have a 3 day riding coming up and this bag would be perfect with its room and lumber support

Pasqualea should not be a problem at all. Have used this bag for years on several bikes, none have sissy bars, actually none have a rear seat, I have a fender rack only, that is what is nice about this bag.

Here is a pic with it on my Volusia.

Ok my bag came today and answered my own questions. It wouldn't fit under the seat and let the brackets go it properly. Was to long in length. Easy fix got my dremel with a plastic cuting bit took off as much as I could on each side , then put it under the pillion part of the seat pushed down so I could get it into both brackets and wella . She fits like a glove :)

Pasqualea..I just did a three day ride with the Grand Tour bag and no backrest. I ended up putting plastic wire ties from the rings under the seat attachment to the bag on both front corners. Then used the straps and crossed them front to back. With the wire ties I was able to crank it tight and it stayed perfect. Prior to that, I just used the straps and at one stop I realized the bag had rotated backwards 90 degrees. It didn't fall off but it was resting on the fender. I just kept a finger nail clipper in the bag and cut off the wire ties at the end of the day to take the bag in the hotel. It took 10 minutes to get it setup but I felt a lot more comfortable that the bag would not fall off.
