Nice thing about the mono shock and your SS brackets;

Dave, what are your thoughts on extra signals (quick disconnect) on the backs of the cases ?
Good idea on the extra signals , I've got an idea similar to the connector used for the battery tender I have, we would have to have the connector between frame and fender or some way of securing when the bags are off, and a waterproof cable entry to the bag , doable for sure , any ideas on the cable entry to bag?

Nice work Dave. That 'sandwich' reinforcement should keep those cases from fatigue cracking for many years to come . Looks like an essential part of your design .

For sure , the cases I ordered online didn't come up to my expectation , too flimsy ,
The plates do the trick , adding the necessary robustness ,

I tuck mine forward between the fender and the frame above the rubber bumper. Doesn't happen too often since I have become very dependent on the 'local shopping' convenience of the hard cases. It seems there is always something I want to take with me or carry home . You would only need to get caught in the rain once without your rain gear to leave the bags, with rain gear inside, permanently attached .

AdMore Lighting's connectors are the ones I use but only work with their lights. They make universal LED light kits for $129 (scroll down ¾) that give run, brake and turn with only two wires at the case connection.

Kit #: LED4014-S-TS

Kit #: LED3618-S-TS

AdMore is a Canadian company based in Calgary, AB.

Thank you for the lighting link , I am beginning to think that there can be 2 sides to the Fury , the long and the short ride !
Next season both

Macxpert you are welcome , I have learned so much from Fury Nation , it's a pleasure to give something
