I have one of those bags - great! I run mine across the seat (don't have a passenger). But can see that on a long haul that would be a good way to go.

I also posted on the UK forum but no reply. I just may have to get down and design my own set.

Where are the passenger's legs supposed to go?

Getting some good ideas from this thread. Thanks, everybody.

It works out well. You can only ride thin chicks. Actually you can move the bags further out to go hoggin.




After bashing the bikes thru the Everglades last week, I give the mod a big thumbs up. All mounting points seem in tact. Nothing loosened or fell off. I had no problems moving around on the bike on or off road.

I dremmeled off the screws. I used the curve in the plastic as a guide. But there is more space if needed.


You can see what I mean here.

Dennis,

Which Rok Straps did you use for your Ortliebs?

I missed the sale, but found a much better deal elsewhere (and a color to match my bike).

I bought 12" Rok straps originally. But they were too short. So I bought more 12" so I had 2 sets on each box. That worked well. No loose straps flyin in the wind. Then for my Florida trip I found the 52" adjustables for cheap on flea bay. They turned out to be the best If I were to start all over again I would have just bought the 52" adjustables. Or 2 sets of 18".

some extra space with these tool-tubes, mounted with a strap
I already mounted these footman-loops on the lid, but they are not handy when you need to get something out of the case, you have to unstrap the top load.

It looks good, but do they move around much(as in left to right)?

I went with Red, they arrived today. I think they will look nice with my Red GS.

Only thing is, I believe these bags have been sitting on some shelf in a warehouse beside a coal factory for a few years. They needed a little wiping down first.

I've tried three places lately for these damn loops, I just checked your post, I wish I'd know they were called "Footman loops" it would have helped with the looks I received.

Did you get these online somewhere? Or your local hardware?

I have a marine supply store to check out tomorrow still.
