    I wasn't satisfied with the Kuryakyn instructions so I decided to experiment. I foung the bag using K's instructions on my K-9 with 18" sissy bar to be loose and wobbled from side to side. I cut two pieces of small pipe foam insulation to wrap around the sissy bar and give more diameter for the velcro belt to grasp. Note how I wrapped the velcro belt - one side around the right bar and the overlapping belt across both bars. Pull it tight when you overlap the velcro belt. I used a nylon stap with a cam buckle to connect the lower "D" ring on each side of the bottom front of the bag to the sissy bar at the rear. I bought these straps at Academy Sporting Goods. They need to be approx. 30" long. When you pull these firm, it's amazing how steady the bag sits on the pillon pad. No wobble. If you've got a better, cheaper solution let me know. Thanks.
