BMW Luggage roll

I know this should be posted in the luggage section, but I leave for a trip, tomorrow morning, and I was afraid this question wouldn't be seen, in time, in that forum. Has anyone bought the BMW Luggage Roll ? I bought one because it's waterproof and looked like it would be a good fit for my RT. However, I have no clue how to attach it to the bike. It came with no pictures or directions. I'm not sure if it should strap to the tail rack, perpendicular to the seat, or sit on the passenger seat, parallel with the seat. The straps that came with it are, oh, about 1000' feet long, with no quick disconnects. Help !!!

Thanks, Roy

I sit my Chicane bag, which is a large, waterproof roll bag, on the seat and strap it to the passenger grab rails. I use ROK straps with quick disconnects.

I put my bag across the pillion seat and put the straps under the pillion seat and lock the seat down then connect the straps on top of the bag.

I use the "Helen Two Wheels" straps and bags. The following link has instructions detailing how to pack for a bike trip. You might get some ideas if you download the pdf file under the link for "Instructions".

Re: BMW Luggage roll

I have never cared top boxes and prefer an assortment of waterproof bags that I select depending on the trip. The bags hold more stuff than the top box and allow more flexibility. On all trips, either one-up or two-up, I strap the bags to the luggage rack using nylon straps with D-rings - no quick disconnects.

Helen-Two-Wheels is an excellent source for the bags, straps, and packing info. Don't know if she still has her web site since she went corporate.
