Mounting Wolfman Rollie

Have any of you figured out a good way to mount a Wolfman Rollie bag (medium) on the seat without an added rack? I've got a 2010 V with Givi hard case side racks and OEM Kawi (made by Givi) cases. I recently bought a Wolfman dry bag for a late May camping trip, and would be grateful for the wisdom of anyone who has a good system for strapping it on. A tail rack, while that would be ideal, is not in the budget this year. Thanks.

Why not just cross a set of ROK straps over the top from grab bar to grab bar.

I've some something similar to that to secure my larger bag to the pilon with no problems.

Sorry, not much detail in this photo but here is my dry bag with my tent ontop of it, strapped to the seat.

I did run the straps through the grab handles on both bags, just to make sure they couldn't move around.

Thanks Mitch I think my main problem was trying to figure out the straps with the bag empty. It's tough to work with a flappy and formless sack. Once my tent, sleeping roll, mummy bag, etc. are loaded to give some bones and resistance I should be good. The medium feels a little long to fasten lengthwise, so I'll try it running perpendicular to the seat. Thanks for the pic.
