Very secure, but flexible

Correct on all counts. Held in place using three different attachment points. Lots of reinforcing plates to prevent the bolts from tearing the plastic, and attached to the rear rack, the grab rail, and then strapped to the side rails for extra support. Some hardware shown below:

A thick piece of EVA foam filled in the floor, and then a thinner EVA foam mat sat out the front to give him leg room. The cut-down top allows him to sit up. He was protected from the bugs and stones by me being in front, but he still got the wind. Biggest ride was three x 900 km days straight! He's done two 1,000 km minimum rides with FarRiders, our Aussie long distance riders, so he's a well-travelled boy.
