I have old Happy Trails panniers and didn't like the way they only attach at the tops and can flop around. So I made some chingas out of Delrin to anchor them to the rear of the passenger pegs bracket. These ones are very rough, just to get the idea and try working with Delrin. In the near future I'll make some nice ones incorporating what I've learned from these.

Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

May have to look close but made up a side stand foot out of an old plastic chopping board. This way it doesn't scratch the hell out of the garage floor and cheaper than buying a Camel Toe or similar!! Just made it slightly larger than the standard foot and bolted straight on (indented the bolts on the bottom). Just like a bought one.
Cost = nothing, just old bits lying around the shed.

Bloody brilliant! Finally a solution for different load conditions. And transferrable to any bike.
