    I am anxious to put them on the bike and try them out. I will get a couple pictures after they are on. Hopefully there will be no shipping involved with proceeding after that..:lol3

    Cheers,

    Hi there,

    So my ManRacks Softbag Tiedown Hooks just arrived and they look really tidy. So shiny I could brush my teeth in them. A couple thoughts came to mind though, although I've yet to mount them. So I was one of the advocates of the CigarMike Slot, however based on my personal experience with slots (and sluts:wink:), I'd think the slot gap could be a tad wider - like maybe 1/8" even. I'm worried I won't be able to reap the benefits of the slot (easy on-off) although I understand your concern about unintentional pass through. Also I thought the early versions had a slight bend off the mounting point. I can add this to mine with my trusty vise. Finally, might I suggest buttonhead 8mm stainless Allen screws (~8mmx20)?

    I'll post a pic of my mounted product.

    Thanks for the quick shipping. I just ordered them earlier in the week and they're already here.

    RZ Rob

    Hey thats good news , when testing we found out that a flat blade screw driver works the best for more gap. also To bend the angle once its on the bike with the same flat blade just stick it through and rest it on the head then pry out until the angle is right for your bike one side at a time & of course put a rag on the shiny things , Ok as soon as i run out of the current stock of nuts and bolt we can get SS button heads,

    Hey, I wanted to pass along props to ManRacks for quality products that really solve a problem - and look good to boot. I like the way the well-designed rack keeps the bulk of the pressure off the plastic (& ultimately the exhaust & battery box). Plus the design transfers some (not all) of the weight off the flimsy subframe. Lastly, the anchor tie-down traingles (with slit) were the missing link. I was able to womp without the bags flopping up & down. Total success.

    Now, if I can get that subframe reinforcement... before I conquer Baja....
