Can someone explain/tell me the preferred method for mounting a duffel bag on the FLSTSB?

I am considering one of: 98835-92, 96668-98





Thanks in advance!

On a luggage rack. Mounting it on the paint will result in paint damage due to the material rubbing the paint.

You *could* mount it on a soft rubber pad, but I prefer zero paint contact.

Yea I'm sure HD sells just the rack for it. Probably have the "accessory/s needed to mount" in the catolog.
Racks is good for securing the load too, as without one your left wrapping bungee around shocks an other unsavory places.

FLSTSB or FXSTSB (a Bad Boy)? I used to have one and miss it. I had the same bag and is mounts nicely to a luggage rack.:USA:

Agreed. first owner of my fatboy had something strapped to the rear fender, clearcoat is all effed up right between the rear of the seat and the license plate bracket. I have a luggage rack that takes about 2 minutes to attach to the sissy bar, that's the way to go.
