I've got Kriega gear and it deffo sits on the seat, in fact it clamps the seat onto the sub frame.

Got loads of other luggage as well,,,,,in total probably aboot 500ltr worth.

Could fit the whole lot packed to the gunwales intae Gilo's top box along wae his gear fir a months fudfest.   happy119   laughing1

Hey F
I don't turn my rack round. I sit the bag on the seat with the pocket over the hoop.

I can then use a sports bag on the rack as a day bag for easy access

Works for me

I can see the sense of having the weight on the seat... just that I never fit the seat so don't want it sat on the cover...
A day bag hanging over the back will make sod all difference too...

The base on the rack is for if you've got a pillion and need the seat, you have it hanging over the back then. They recommend bigger bags to sit on the seat and to use the base for smaller bags that zip on to the bigger one. That's how I had mine Felix if I didn't need much tackle, but if I was away for a week I'd take the pod odd off, fit the seat and drop it on that. It goes down the rack a bit bor anorl and feels a bit more secure.
I'd only need a loop for the back no matter which way I had it facing with the Mutley having a luggage rack/rail thingy anyroads.


Anyhoooo, under there, somewhere is a Ventura rack  big grin1

Ventura rack:
Always have the bottom of the bag support rack to the rear.
The bag itself loaded towards the front, with it's weight on the rear seat. This helps with CoG.
If you don't have a rear passenger seat, cover top surface of seat cowl and rear tail unit with loads of gaffa tape to avoid marking. You can now use the back of the rack for additional utilities/toolbag/tent...whatever.
