I've been struggling with the luggage issue and I just wanted to throw out what I finally did. I picked up the Kuryakyn Grantour Bag. It was a little pricier than I would have liked but it mounts well, it's waterproof (it seems like it hasn't stopped raining here!) and offers a good deal of space. Fits a 12pack of your favorite pop very easily, doesn't scratch the paint and comes on and off with little effort.

I needed something for the weekend run, or since I don't have a car, the occasional "I need to carry stuff". Pics are attached.

The sissy bar "back rest" helps it not slide back, but the straps to the actual sissy bar hold it good and tight. There's an adjustable velcro strap that wraps around the back rest and that helps too.

That looks decent. doesn't ruin the look of the bike at all. would be necessary on any type of longer trip unless you want to wear one huge ass backpack.

It does double as a backrest and it comes with a pad to do just that. It wasn't comfortable though, it was just too far back to be usefull. Maybe my arms just aren't long enough but I couldn't reach the grips when I leaned back!! By the way, I'm an average height at 5'11"..

My medium BikersFriend backpad didn't reach my back either. I had to 'pad' the sissybar to make the BikersFriend move forward to get a fit. Long term I'll probably make a more decent looking backpad extension out of some dense foam and velcro.
The Kuryakin setup looks good.. it's got me thinking..

i have the large bikersfriend and had too use a filler behind it also. if u have the sissy bar pad and are a little taller then me (5'6" 30"inseam) it should work great.

Thanks for the pictures Scratch... looks like a good system. Should hold a couple of pairs of jeans, two or three t-shirts and a shaving kit. Enough for a weekend anyways...

Nice find. I'll be looking into this:D. On my old bike I used a Corbin seat with the pillon back rest. It worked and looked great. I just can't get into the Corbin seat on the Fury. Doesn't look right to me. The Bikers friend bag looks a little more old school and I like that.

Need some easy-risers

here is a pic of a large bikersfriend bag i had to use some fillers behind the bag cause im short.
I just got the large biker's friend today; I'm just under 6'2" and even with the spare pad against the sissy bar pad I couldn't get the bag quite up far enough to really comfortably lean back against. Although I like the biker's friend a LOT nonetheless. I think the problem is more those short damn handlebars than the rider's height; have been watching for awhile now for a set of riser's but haven't seen any. Or I missed 'em if they're out there. Hopefully find a set soon that works with stock cables and gives me just that couple/three inches up and back that for me will make the seating just right.

I'm really interested in that bag but I don't want to install a sissy bar. I know it says it can be mounted to the passenger seat...do you think it would work on the Fury or no?? It looks really good...nice choice

The risers for the VTX1300C from Scootworks will work with the Fury.

Thx Kenny. I've seen those, and may buy some. Been waiting to see if I can find a slightly longer extension actually. But as fall draws near, I may just go ahead and try that set sometime soon. I'll give RAW a little longer; they say they'll have something soon.
