Yes they come with 3 velcro strips.Middle 1 goes under the other seat 2 over the top of the seat then it has straps to secure the bottom to your foot peg to stop it flapping around

MCN seemed to think the mounting method for these bags was a PITA unfortunately.

(I can't post links but Googling "sw motech legend review", it's the top result).

Mine are LC1 version, which sit on a metal frame mounted brackets and not on a saddle strap. I find it easier this way.

I have just bought some metal frames from Givi as the Held bags just wern't secure enough for me Also I did think they were pretty close to the back tire!! so hopefully the frame will fix that

For touring I've got the 48 liters sw-motech LR2. Lots of straps to attach other bags if you need the space. Fairly stable when strapped to the passenger's pillion support at the front and to the end of the frame @ the back. Maybe a little too close to the high mounted akra exhaust, but I found that the exhaust does not get unduly hot, and there is some breathing space. I'll post a picture when I get around to it. It's usually not on the bike.

Sw-Motech tail bag

For touring I've got the 48 liters sw-motech LR2 bla bla bla ...

.. and this is what the "touring mode" looks like:





a bit too close to the exhaust... I may attach a seat "riser" to increase the safety margin.
