    No..just a little rigid bag I can throw my lunch into and go to work is all. I HAVE one from my sportster but the flat base is too wide for that silly little rack on the RS. Thats why I think a roundish bag will work. I'll find something eventually. I do have the side cases which work well! If I leave my (motorcycle) cover loose in one side case I can put my lunch bag in there and it won't rattle around. Something like this..but this one is pretty big.

    Not trying to get people to do my homework for me. But just gathering ideas. Learned a lot so far! Would like to find a first edition of that BMW roll bag. Now they have the roll bag 2 or something. looks too big.
    I guess I am picky, but in my defence..ok I'm just picky..
    Also researching the transmision circlip issue in hopes of finding a way to have it fix itself while I sleep. How's my chances?? Maybe I can pour in some "circlip in a can"?

    Been using them for years. Simple, tough, totally waterproof.
    I use a large size on my oilhead RT and a medium size on my G/S.
    Done like dinner.

    Just saw them on sale here: http://www.bestrestproducts.com/p-11...rack-pack.aspx
    I actually have bags like that. Dry bags for sailing. For the bike I kinda want something semi permantly fixed with like a zipper opening. One of my dry bags will fit nice on the rack though. Thanks for the idea.

    Best circlip discussion I've come across

    I've included a link that really covers the cir-clip problem pretty well.

    Well I have found a proper rack with a backrest my girl has been asking for! Problem solved! Only took about 873.5 hours of internet research and buying things I don't need but ultimately all is well and I have a chrome rest AND a black NOS rest should the mod strike me. Plus the thing removes in under 5 minutes.
    No need to buy a top case because now the one I own works fine. I can leave the panniers off for the work commute.

    Interesting looking rack. Do you know who makes or made the rack?

    Edit: saw your other post regarding Reynolds backrest. So, now I know.

    Yep Reynolds. I have 2 of them but only one mounting piece. I think I will have that extra one forever unless another mounting piece shows up on my doorstep.
