What about just using a laptop computer case strapped on the rear rack? It you are trying to avoid permanently installing something, that might give you the option that you are looking for. I use one for work and the case is really, really nice...and waterproof!
I've got to tell you though, I bought the big stock case(45L ?) when I bought my bike and I love it. It hold an extra full-faced, extra face shield and my mini-compressor and tire kit along with a gallon of milk if I need to stop at the store. I got caught too many times when I rode "back in the day" without any room to carry anything that i jumped on the chance to get the topcase.
