How does it attach to the bike? Could you possibly post a photo of that?

I have also heard this bag can put pressure on the fragile tail light assembly, contributing to the common breakage of the mounts. Does it look to you like it can do that?

I think if you slide it forward more, it will just get slid back when you are accelerating hard. That's when it puts pressure on the tail light assembly.

two straps underneath the seat with two anchoring down straps for the front.

when its lined up correctly with rear seat, as the back side of the bag scaled perfectly, its not close enough to touch anything with rear light assembly

I've got the larger version and it is 100% supported by the passenger seat. No chance of it pushing on the tail light and absolutely zero chance of it moving around either.

Overall it's well made. Just not as waterproof as I'd like.

Ps. Mine is a 2017 so I can't talk for the earlier versions

Thanks for posting the pics.

Did you order it locally, or did you get a "deal"?
If yes to "deal", would you mind sharing?

I got the PP tail bag yesterday. Seems plenty secure without those ugly additional frame tie down straps. Anyone else using it without the straps?

BTW, I got a great deal on it from ktmworld.com

I've got my tail bag on using the rear seat as the mounting point only. Never realised the straps were meant to be used with the frame, lol.

I use mine on the passenger seat also using the underseat hooks to keep it from sliding, paid $225 from local dlr.
Enjoy
