For those of you that actually RIDE it is a cleaner alternativeInteresting, but I not my style.
So if I don't put bags on my bike I don't actually ride? I wonder how that 10k a summer gets put on my bike? I get your point though. Thats why I have ordered a Ginz bar and sissybar bag. No more back pack for me!For those of you that actually RIDE it is a cleaner alternative
The Corbin 'saddlebags' have more style but only 24.5 Liter capacity each compared to 41 liters for the GIVI. No passenger accommodation on my Fury but it is possible either by mounting the bags further back or extending the passenger foot rests more forward (a bit more than Corbin does) which I have seen some do just for comfort . The bags come off in seconds and the brackets in a few minutes (two bolts each). My original plan was to only use them for traveling but I use them every day and always have my gear on board. Not as tough as I used to be so comfort is a big sell .those hard bags can definitely come in handy!!!
um... doesn't look like any room for a passenger.
Gar great post and pics/vids!!!
Thanks sabreguy .I quite like that. I wish my bags were easily removable. But i have a very unrelated question for you, have you ever used the ABS on your bike? Not intentionally i mean.
Just made them up as I went. Too many hours involved to make them again but easy enough for you to take a line off the foot peg mounts and then up to the frame. The lower rail goes to the lower foot peg bolt hole and then kicks up an inch on the right side and 1¼" on the left. From there you drill and bolt through the frame into the little dogleg welded to the top that gets around the fender. The bag mounting hardware has to be fitted to bracket to match the bag mounting slots, at least that's how I did it. Make sure you read all of this thread especially posts 15 & 16.fury15 said:Hello Gar, I want to first introduce myself as an forum member and fellow Fury owner. I have been following the forum very closley since my fury purchase on Jan 14,2012. Purchased a red 2011 and it has more mods than miles, but I won't bore you with all the small talk. I am very interested in the saddle bag brackets you made for your bike. Would you be willing to make a set for me to purchase? If you aren't willing to make a set is there a blueprint that you would sell? I too like taking long trips and it would be the perfect setup. Thanks for all the wisdom and knowledge you bring to the forum.
Ride safe, Johnnie
not a fan of the bags. i am thinking about the bikers friend bag for really long trips, but otherwise if it doesnt fit in a back pack i dont need it.
