New rack or new bag?

I've had a Tubus Fly on my bike for some time, and quite like it. I scored a Novara trunk bag at the last REI garage sale, and I like it too. The problem is, it falls off the Tubus because the rack is so narrow. This leaves me with several options.

1. Give up on the trunk bag and get one that will fit on the Fly. IF so, which trunk bag will work?

2. Move the Fly to another bike (I wouldn't mind this) and get a new rack. Cargo? Vega? Another brand? I love the Tubus look.

Hit me.

From what I've seen, #1 isn't much of an option. I don't think anybody makes a rack bag that narrow.
