Another vote for RotoPax. I carry one that I mount to my OEM Vario top case. It's just strapped on with quick release buckles on 1" nylon straps. The 'handles' that the straps go through are just cheapie drawer-pulls that I mounted to the top case..they provide handy attachment points for all kinds of stuff. I mounted four of them with short ss bolts, bedded in RTV to keep the holes waterproof.
