First, remove the pillon seat behind the driver seat. Use a metric socket wrench to remove the mounting bolt at the back center of the pillon. Note the 'retaining strap' over the pillon. You can remove one of the side screws that hold this strap and swing it aside, but this is not absolutely necessary. Once the pillon mounting bolt is out, lift the pillon slightly and pull it to the rear. Be careful not to let metal parts scratch your rear fender. Now look at the hex socket bolts holding the driver seat to the rear fender. These are removed with a metric hex wrench (Allen wrench). Don't mess with these unless you can fit the bolt socket exactly. There should be a hex wrench in your Vulcan toolkit. When these have been removed, the driver seat can be lifted up and back to remove. It's a real mess under there, isn't it? To re-install, reverse the order of the above -- driver's seat goes in first, bolts secured and then the pillon. Don't force anything. If either seat is hanging up above its mounting position, you don't have the seat 'tongue' in its socket.

various ways mate you can get throwovers which litterally throw over the rear fender under the seat(over the seat if prefered.) you will need brackets which are bike specific to stop them going into the rear wheel. you can get quick release brackets so you can remove panniers at your destination. go to cruiser customizing and they have all the info and accessories you need.
