    Front View shows left pannier strap(to rider) is velcro ready where as right side needs velcro to be unstitched and re-attached to opposite side.

    Close up of left strap attached to glued on velcro(Industrial Strength). Velcro can be found at Lowes for 8.00 a roll.

    Velcro attached to face of leading edge of fairing. One could apply more across top and at intermediate locations if so desired...

    Velcro on rear of bag, as mentioned more could be applied to further stabilize bags...

    Close up showing venting ports...

    Located a clip on oil fitting and radiator for bungee straps as a possible long term attachment point and will improve said clip if there is no risk to mounting point location...with this placement of bags there is plenty of room for rider but the top strap will need to be removed for filling tank and it's my assumption if not over loaded with wieght they will hold fine, time will tell and will update once a field test is done...

    Nice job!! I love my stitch tank panniers, wish I would have gotten the yellow though.

    I used velcro on the tank and bag to help hold them while jumping. Broke a strap before. Now no worries.

    How about a nice side profile shot of the whole bike, so we can see the overall visual impact?

    I have ordered some yellow tank/side bags for mine also, although they are a different brand. I will post when I get them on.

    I am getting the bike ready for a ride across Louisiana to the "Beast Feast."

    I hope the bags work as well as they look, because they look very cool!

    Kolpin's won't fit. Looked at the MSR bottles just the other day :wink:. With some padding around them they may be the ticket until we can find a better alternative. I have thought of figuring out a way to mount the Kolpin's to the rear racks and if possible actually connecting them for direct feed to the fuel system. Haven't thought it through but will be working on some extended fuel set up...Can't wait to see your Light setup and probably gonna do the same.
