Tail bag options

Does anyone know how the MV tail bag attaches to the seat and if it would scratch the paint?

http://www.mvagusta.it/common/shop/s...-passeggero-f3



I am interested in buying this bag when my bike arrives. I would appreciate if you have any recommendations on any other brands of tail bags that would fit the F3 rear seat and not scratch the tail.

Currently - '13 Ducati Multistrada (for sale), '09 Daytona (track only)
Previously - '13 F800GS, '13 MV F3, '10 S1000RR, '04 Royal Enfield 500, '97 Yamaha RX135, '90 Yamaha RD350...and many more.

Simple system for most of the tail bag systems. Velcro straps run under the rear seat as seen above as in the two tabs cant be 100% sure as have not had in my hands. Will be difficult to find a rear seat bag as the seat.....if you can call it that is on the small side.

F3 Serie Oro 14/200

True, its difficult to find an aftermarket tailbag that fits snug over the passenger seat. MV states that the bag has 20 liters capacity, which I think would work for me pretty well for a weekend ride.

I don't like backpacks while riding, hard to move around the bike with the load on your back and not so comfortable in summer. I usually ride for 10-12hrs on a good weekend. I think the Kreiga US20 may also fit:

I have that pack and the (2) 10 litre packs than connect to it, rigged up on my Street Triple. It looks like the pillion accommodations on the F3 may be a little narrower, but I hoping it fits.

Usually the 20l bag is my changes of clothes or laptop/computer gear, and a 10l is for bike stuff (chain oil, some tools, etc) and the other 10l is for cool weather gear.

These bags are awesome; never shift around, completely watertight and easy to disconnect and carry. I love 'em.

I'd love to take the F4 on a long run to France etc..I would have to come up with a clever idea to get a pack on the back of the bike..maybe utilizing the Biposto seat..Not a bodge a real smart set up.
