Hey ARG, it is fall down stupid to relocate the rear turn signals, even with JVB's instructions. And you're an engineer. You can figure it out. No extra parts needed; the mounting is secure. Jesse bags are so superior, don't let this little thing get in the way. Besides I doubt, after 5 or 6 years of making the R12009GS bags the way he does with thousands sold world wide, that Al is going to change his successful design, particularly because it is still a very popular product given the longevity of the GS design, at least at the rear of the bike .
