Saddlebag supports? Google is not my friend.
« on: January 27, 2013, 03:44:53 am »
Yes, I know this is heresy.  I'm thinking of switching to soft saddlebags.  Problem is, I don't want them in my wheels.  Anyone know of supports or brackets that would allow this?

Look at Happy Trails website. They may have something.  Or Find a fab shop and have them build to your sketch.

IMHO .. The stock bags on the 92 look horrible.  Not a fan of the other options.  Perhaps some small soft bags would look better.  I don't really need that much space in the side bags.

You may have already explored the hard Givi bags, but in case you haven't what do you think about these pictured in the attached link?  36 liters and that's more than the OEM Connie bags.  I have a set for my Wee-Strom and they are great.  I am working on a quick and easy way to mount them on the Connie antlers, only because I have a salvaged rack setup for them that I can cut up and adapt.  Otherwise, happy Trails does have racks for Givi hard bags on the Connie.

Also I attached a pic of the E21's on my Wee-Strom, smaller top-loaders.

Or maybe attach some aluminum plate or similar to the existing antlers and suppport the soft bags that way.
