    The Cycleracks bag supports came today as well. I thought I'd throw a pic or two of these up also.











    I did not know this, but Don says these bag supports are designed to work on the front rack too.

    Those are great, you'll like them. I mounted a pair of 50 cal ammo cans to mine.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Another member used clear tubing on the loops to keep the paint from grinding together.



    Cut four pieces to length, then I believe he boiled them (?) to get them soft enough to go on easy.



    I'm gonna have to start saving up for a rack & set of these.

    Srs, I saw that about the clear tubing too. I was thinking I'd run down to the hardware store tomorrow and see what I can find.



    Ridgeline, I'm on the fence about how I'm going to use these. I have a Kolpin gas can on order so I'm going to see what that looks like on these. Don at Cycleracks says guys have put the gas cans on these supports and hung them off the front rack. I don't have a front rack, but I wonder what that would look like and how it would affect the handling, if at all. I'm also looking for a rifle boot that I may try and mount on one of them. And I'm looking for something that'll work as soft panniers, like molle packs. I wish I was one of those guys that could think of something and then just see it in my head, but that's not me. Anyway, I'll post up as I try different things.

    They look like (at least on the left) there is room to mount a tool-tube on the inside of the plate.



    Maybe even two on the left and one low on the right (below the muffler). Or a tube on the right and a fuel pack on the left.



    Then just drape soft bags over them, or mount hard boxes on the outside.



    I'm gonna search the forums for a pic of these from behind to get a better idea of how much room there is.



    While I definitely want a rear rack, I'm not gonna get a front rack until I find one that sits OVER the headlight so I can load it up and not block the light for road travel.

    Tool Tubes mount fine on top, without blockage - my bride commented that it looked like I had rocket launchers on it. I originally mounted them under the rack but moved them up just to see how they'd do. They work fine either place. I use my bike a lot around the ranch primarely during daylight hours - it's nice to slap a small chainsaw gas can and a container of chain oil on the front rack and my tools in my bags in back.

    Here's a picture of Mrs Trip's bike with seahorse cases mounted on the bag supports.

    I did pick up some tubing. Two feet is enough for both sides. I bought the 1/2" OD (3/8" ID) stuff. It's too big. The next size down will be a heck of a fight getting it on, but it's probably the way to do it. This size leaves a gap between the tubing and the support. It'll just collect dirt. I wonder how heat-shrink tubing would hold up for this application? It'd be a heck of a lot easier to install.



    The Kolpin gas pack came today. The way Cycleracks has the supports pre-drilled, it's a bolt-on deal -- no drilling needed. I'll snap some pics tomorrow when it's light out and I'll pay special attention to the view from the rear so you can mentally measure for tool tubes.
