Is there such thing as a tailbag that can be secured to the two strap brackets under the 2000-2002 seat?

I'd like to get a tailbag, ie: Joe Rocket Velocity - but I don't like to see bungee cords and straps that wrap all the way around the bodywork.

The reason I posted that link is because I saw some bags in there that looked something like what you described you were looking for (without the bungee cords going all the way around the tail).

I have a Nelson-Rigg tail bag that I use on my '02. I remove the passenger pad and connect the bungee hooks to one another in an 'X' pattern under under the seat and re-attach. Works good and the bag is locked to the bike (although all a thief would need is a relatively sharp knife and they'd have it off in a second).

I've been using a Chase Harper Aero pack for 11 years as you describe. The bag comes with four bungee hooks sticking out but I took the cables out of the bag and put the hooks under the bottom cover of the bag and hooked/zip tied them together. This leaves me two bungee loops on the bottom of the bag. Take off passenger seat slide over the bungee cables, reattach and everything is rock solid. As a bonus nothing touches the body work at all and you can hook a bungee net to the cables/bag if you stack anything on top of the bag.

I've used this on my Hawk GT and 98 zx9r with no problems. Don’t know about a 6 yet as mine only comes in Feb but suspect you wouldn't have a problem as the 2000-2002's and 9r back seats are very similar. Only negative I have is the fact I only came up with this after the hooks had scratched the crap out of my hawks tail section...

Here’s a link to the Chase Harper tail pack I have.

I’ve had mine for 11 years and it looks and works exactly the same as the day I bought it.

Thanks Red, Dan... I'll look into your solutions. It seems to me what I want to do can be done with virtually any pack, with a little ingenuity!

Thanks again
