    @Lone.Rider Just testing out mounting the Minibags today in the garage. Any chance that you could show photos/video of different ways to use the straps?
    I have used the G loops/clips on the molle but I was wondering if there are other ways to use the straps that are included.

    My bike is in the shop so it will be hard to make some photos at the moment. They will attach straight to the back of the MotoBag with 4 side loops, the G hook will fit nicely into them.

    Ah. Okay. I'll give that a try then. I just assumed that they attached to the molle strips on the backs of the bags.
    I'll give those loops a go then. Thank you!

    Thanks for the tip on mounting the bags. That works! They are much more snug and stable mounted to those outer loops. The other side I just used the molle.
    At the bottom of the bag there are loose straps that can be used to wrap through the daisy chain on the side of the mini bags. I may try and put a couple ladder buckles just to cinch things on. So impressed with the motobags and minibags!

    I've held off ordering them because I wasn't sure how they mounted the bags based on your webs pictures. Now I'm more inclined to order them for my LR motobags with your explanation and the members picture of them attached.

    @AZQKR @superfunkomatic With the Ghooks it is easy to take off and on. I was thinking of doing it like in the image below, the minibag has straps and it goes through the through molle part. But the Ghook system can compress and easy to remove if needed. Could do both just to achieve a sexy solution.

    I'd prefer the hooks as shown on the web page for attaching them to either the back of the bags or upper crash bars. I can't decide where I want to put them at this point.

    While I have your ear, any idea if the intel I've seen about removable rack/bags in the pipeline is going to happen? And will they be designed to be backwards compatible with the present rack/plate system?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yep and yep. I will be making a quick release system for the MotoBags. I will design it with the current design in mind so it is compatible. There is no need to change the current design as it is quite optimized and works well, we only need to make the bracket that connects the bag to the rack.

    In saying that, it will take some time for prototyping and testing, then there will be investing in tooling to make them. We could make a metal part that clips but I would rather make a custom design so it is super easy to remove. Cheers, Andrew

    I'll be one of the first customers for testing, keep me in mind when the design is finalized. With the quality your company exhibits in their present products, I'm sure I'll be a customer for the new quick release system.

    Thanks again for offering great products to riders.

    Andrew, LR mini tent question. Can it be used as a stand alone without tie downs and stakes in the ground? A lot of places I go, there's no footing for stakes to hold.

    Presently use a stand alone two man tub, but I'd really like to get that LR mini tent if it can possible be used without tie downs/stakes.

    The MiniTent will need to be staked down, at least once each end...
