It's a great idea and probably a lot less expensive than a bespoke bag.

I've been looking around at bags to use as a tank bag, one that can sit nicely on top of the middle hump section in front of the seat, other than the "official" tank bags available (too expensive if you ask me). I used a small, soft insulated cooler type bag on my recent trip, which worked great, but I just don't like the color (red), and maybe something with some additional pockets would be nice too. So far the closest thing I've come across is a "boarding bag" at Target, $20. I'll keep looking though.

I drilled a small hole on either side of the hump (thin plastic), and run a very small bungee over the top of the bag and hooked into the holes. Works fine.

I first tried using the "velcro" type material that come with the laminar lip, a strip of it stuck onto the hump, and the opposite strip stuck onto the bottom of the bag, but this piece on the hump wouldn't stay glued on, so after fussing with it for a few attempts, I gave up and went with the holes and bungee. The holes are pretty discreet, so I don't mind having them there.

I like the looks of the second bag and the way it is mounted. Never would of thought of something like that.
