    Question Question: Saddle bags on TDUB

    Hello all.
    A friend gave me a set of Nelson-rigg SPRT-40 saddle bags as a gift. It seams i cannot put them on my 2008 tw200 because they lack any structure on the tail. I have the cycleracks.com tail rack and i think i will need to attach more steel to it in order to make it work. Does anyone have any suggestions here?

    This is the best thing I've seen so far. You can get just the saddlebag brackets.

    I seem to recall that lots of folks have modified the cycleracks to add just enough metal to hold the bags out from the wheel/chain/muffler. You just need a confident welder friend/contact. Improvisation is the name of the game. Tom

    I am using the above brackets and they work fine for my Cortech bags. I will eventually do some water proof dry sacks.

    If I remember right it's just 1/2in plywood

    $3.21 worth of 3/8" bar stock (8 foot stick). Approximately 4 hrs of bends with a vice and some torch heat along with 4 welds. I figured on buying TinmanTims setup eventually here but these are working great for now.7313 065.JPG

    I just throw on my cheap bicycle pannier bags when I need to carry stuff. No fastening system needed. I just sit on 'em to hold them in place.
