Since I do not have a rear seat, I purchased this so I could carry my Kuryakyn full dresser travel bag CC_ KY-4140. First lets talk about the mounting brackets on the VTX-R/S; the 2 mounting brackets (MB's)go in-between the fender, and the main fender holding brackets (Or Bezil), so loosen the bolts alot, removing the one's that will go thru the MB, by hand pull (Two person job) the main fender bracket away from the fender and be very very careful not to strach your paint, which is very easy to do as this is a tight fit until you get it into place, and the bolt holes lined up. I got the rear rack at the same time, mounted all together, be careful! When I put my travel bag on; the angle of the backrest bars were too narrow for the bag to fit right; purchased square tubing that fit into the brackets, had a top tube cross bar welded on, and the bag now fits great, resting on the rear carrier. Unless traveling I leave the backrest off the bike. Without the backrest the brackets would be great to put flag pole's (2) in for parade's.
