I had a user ask me how I pack my PCX since I removed the aftermarket rear rack. It's easy! Sorry for the low-quality pics, you should still get the idea though. ;)


Start with a PCX. Aftermarket seat optional! :lol:

Get out your backpack. Tighten the shoulder straps most of the way.

Open your seat up. Loop your backpack onto the seat. My thumb is covering up the latch, but you get the idea. Both shoulder straps are under the passenger area, in front of the latch itself.

Close the seat. It'll take some difficulty, and you will have to bend your seat a bit to latch it, but it will be fine. It's just plastic. ;) The backpack stays in place very well, and doesn't move in the turns.

When I camp with Maddie, she rides shotgun on the tunnel bag. The tunnel bag has a box with our mess kit, rain gear, water bottle, and a first aid kit. Clothes go under the seat, along with miscellaneous. Food goes in the backpack, along with my ipad (in a lifeproof case). A waterproof rolltop bag with the sleeping bag and hammock tent goes on top. Between the underseat bin, a tunnel bag, and a backpack, you can get almost anything on there without any sort of aftermarket rack. :D

I stuff the empty backpack under the seat. When i buy something, i load up the pack and wear it. Maddie could even ride in the backpack if you tie the 2 zippers so they don't slip open while she is peeking out.

Of course, in your example you could use 2 backpacks. One tied to the seat and one on your back.

I never wear a backpack on my back when I can help it. If you're not wearing a spinal protector, you can paralyze yourself in an accident if you're wearing a backpack. On long rides, I wear a tiny camelbak to stay hydrated though! :D

Maddie does have a backpack I custom made for her. It zips shut all the way and has a hole for her head to pop out of it. :lol: I wear it on my front when I'm riding if it rains, and zip her up into an XL-sized rain jacket.

What is the bag in front of your seat? Where did you get it/how much was it?
