Igloo soft side 6 pack cooler: stuff the front pocket with some foam or ploy filler, put a 6 pack in the cooler (plastic lined for stiffness), strap it behind you, works great @ $6.95 or less this time of year.

Or, a small or medium sized Biker's Friend rollbag. They're designed with backrests built in. The Medium sized bag is recommended for the Vulcan 750, and on their website they have this pic of someone using a Medium on their VN750:





...But I personally found that I lean back more (I'm 6'2" tall) and need a Small (the Medium size makes me sit ramrod straight up, which may be good for my posture but is uncomfortable as a riding position), and for a small bag a cost of upwards of $200 is kinda steep.

Cool Backrests and other...

Hey, I like the "Buddy" backrest !!! Does it stay on the seat pretty well??

Also, noted you have a 'magnetic traffic light trigger'... please enlighten me?

Yep, my igloo cooler is slightly larger than a six-pack cooler, but it works great for riding back and forth to work. Oh, and I do carry my lunch in it.

I read up a lot on those traffic light triggers, and you don't need one. You just have to know where to place yourself when coming up to one of those lights. If there are no wires in the ground, then the magnet won't work anyway.
