Default Looking for a backpack that will fit over my sissy bar

Anyone know of a backpack that will slide over a sissy bar? I plan on riding to work and would like to slide a backpack over my sissy bar instead of having to strap it down.

Kuryakyn bags has a mini gran tour bag

But it's not really a backpack. I need one that will hold a laptop, and other geek accessories...in an organized way...not just one big compartment.

Try this one. This is the one that I have and I like it a lot. It has given me no problems, its easy to strap on to the sissy bar and it comes with a rain cover and a garment bag.

Try wallyworld (walmart for the uninformed). I got one there for about $35. Slips over the sissybar either way and has plenty of room in it.

I am a programmer and commuted with my laptop daily.
I found this bag to do all I needed and then some.
It is not cheap, but it was tall enough for my 17" laptop and still had room for lots more stuff. It is not designed for laptops, so I configured the inside to fit my stuff. It has an adjustable shelf to help with that.

If you have any questions about it, just give me a shout.

You can find these on ebay cheap. I got mine for under 100. It is HD branded, but not obnoxiously. I can carry my laptop, various cavles, a change of clothes, etc. It's really well made and comes with a rain cover. I use it for weekend trips to see my folks and besdes packing a seperate bag for the dog ... it's all I need.

I have this exact same backpack and love it! It's exactly as fuctional as Randy indicates (more so) and it's very well thought out. Don't let the HD tag deter you. It holds a LOT of stuff!

Agree with Randy, tons of bags on E-bay, and used prices are really reasonable. Most people buy luggage, and use it once or twice. When they decide to sell it's usually like new. Just search "Sissy bar bag", "t-bag" and "Tail bag", in the motorcycle parts section.
I bought a like new XL Tourmaster with a roll top for less than $50.

Got the same one. Had it for 4 years and all the zippers still function perfect. I added some partical board framing in the inside to give it some body.
