To answer one of your earlier questions about the time it takes to install the Overlander 30 I timed the install last night. Bags full and laying on the floor when timer took just under 2 minutes to put the bags securely on the bike.

About the over seat buckle..............I am sure that once you have the dimension of that strap that you need, you could eliminate the buckle by removing it and just have a strap. It could be a little difficult to get the proper tension of the bag by just using the rear strap though???? I don't think velcro would hold up too good???
Or you could move the buckle closer to the bag, getting it off of the seat.
When unloaded, the bags might be a little floppy. The extra strap lengths can be secured with the little strap secure thingies that Kriega supplies. I really don't think that will be an issue.
