Bike Brothers side bags . . .

I've been hunting around for some decent saddle bag type deal. i picked up the La Rosa offering and was very disappointed in mounting. They just kinda bounced all over the place. I picked up a "black" Triumph branded bag but it came in what looked like brown leather to me so I had it sent back. Tried to find another as i like the mount system well enough but really wanted 2 bags. So I just grabbed the pair of left and right "tool bags" from Bike Brothers. They seem pretty cool and a solid mounting system. I'll report back but wondering if anyone is running these already?

Just got mine today. I only went with the left side. I intend to use it more as an occasional storage space but also some basic tools.

I purchased both left & right side bags sone 12 months ago....find them very good. Please remember, they are not large bags. However, they suit purpose & do not look imposing on the bike.

Darn it. Now I’m thinking I might want the right side also.

I am running both and have been for two years. IMHO they are great - they don't take over the shape of the bike and provide some storage space. They aren't big inside but big enough to be useful - lock, water, etc.

I use some nyties as well as the straps to keep the bags tight to their frame.

Chezqui, did you contact BikeBrothers about finding the connectors/plugs you were looking for ?

Not yet. A few local leads but not looking promising. Might have to be a cut and solder job, which is itself reversible, just not as easily. I wish British (French) Customs had thought the job through more before selling the rear plate holder.
