    My 05 R1 2.0

    So after a couple of long trips and many sunday rides with gear in the bags. I just didn't like the way it felt and started not liking the way it looked......eventually hating it!!!!! So, on my last trip to TN I rode some 400 miles through twisties and got my brother in (one of the best welders I know) to re-do my custom mounting brackets. Here is what we came up with....oh yeah, now to start testing.....

    Can't tell on the picture to well, but I moved them down about 6 inches, forward around 4, and rotated them a bit.

    Is he local? I would LOVE to have some custom mounting brackets on my Bonnie to use tool bags as mini saddle bags.
