I'm using the stich ones mounted to my crash bars. I cut the straps down, installed some grommets in the straps. A little 550 cord and a couple of zip ties hold the straps together around the crash bar, I used a couple of cheap nylon buckle straps to hold them close to the bike. It's worked great for a few years now. On road trips I put some tools in them, keep the heavy tools fairly low and centralized. I tried them over the tank as they are supposed to go, but I didn't like them there. I just couldn't get them to sit in a way I liked, but as I have them now is great. They even deflect a bunch of the air that would hit me in the lower legs.
