Ortlieb Saddle Bag Installation?

So I have a pair of Ortlieb M22 Waterproof Saddle Bags with velcro seat straps. I am trying to attach them to a Happy Trails rack on my KLR.

I am kind of baffled on how to get these things secured to the bike. The two rear straps buckle straps seem to wrap behind the back fender. But the two long forward straps(fixation strap) is where I am getting hung up. Are they suppose to go under the seat and then buckle on the opposite side?

No mounting instructions anywhere on the net...?

Any thoughts.
