The bags were from ridebikegear.com
Quality and strength was medium.
The plate made it strong enough though.
The J bracket was custom made by a friend , I used 1/4 plate aluminum and high density foam to attach bag to J brkt

I wonder if the cobra saddlebag bracket would work. Do you think your buddy can put together bravket&hooks for me? And for how much? Thanks!

The J brackets were milled out of a block of Stainless , it was a huge favor he did for me, the best I could do is make an engineered drawing for the Forum if anyone is interested , the 2 brackets per side have different lengths because of the fender curve , I had made a template out of sheet metal , and he went to work on it , it took a revision or 2 lol , perhaps they could be made out of cold rolled steel.
Anyone Pm me if u would like the drawing

Very clean install Dave .

Trevor, good looking choice .



The LNs are the best looking bags I've seen on a Fury; MUs may be even better and twice the capacity .
Brackets that come with look a bit flimsy and might need reinforcement or redesign .
You can see them on their website.

They do look really well fitted. I take it that's the LN bags in the picture. I also seen a set that looked like Harley's hard bags was wondering how they may look aswell.

Wow these are really well priced. I've been thinking of bolting some hard bags to my Le Bag supports.

Top opening bags sure make life easier .
Nice thing about the mono shock and your SS brackets;
they keep the bags tight to the fender .

Dave, what are your thoughts on extra signals (quick disconnect) on the backs of the cases ?

As I am in the market for some bags and because I'll be in the Bay Area late Jan early Feb I will go to Mutazu and check them out in person. For anyone on the fence I'll let you know what I think of them.
