Dave- Can't wait to see if you figure out something that works with Dzus fasteners for a quick release alternative. Good on you for looking into quick release ideas .

As you stated:
That's the thing, what do you do with the straps?
Having the straps mounted on the bike is a bit of an eyesore if the bags are removed off the bike. However no more of an eyesore than soft bag brackets that are bolted in place ie DirtBagz, once the bags are removed.

If using the Voile straps such as the gents in your linked RR then its simply a matter of holes drilled in the plastic and threading the straps through. So far this seems the most practical solution I believe if looking for quick release capabilities.

Curious if other posters have pragmatic ideas for quick release using the GL bag.
