Here the brackets, made out of stainless steel, still got to brush em for a nice finish. Good thing is i could mount the whole bracket and "plug it" into CT original holder. Very easy to fit. I fix it down in front with 2 strong velcro fastener.

Brace support where indicated ... pull it down with the fastener. That gives a tight fit in on the construction on front side ... i think it is almost enough also for the back side. However, if i feel unsafe i might make some support at the back on the cross-tie as well.

Nice job Ojo. I could get the contents of my house into those side cases  :005:.

I am using a small Honda bag (ST1300 Topcase bag) on the back seat for now - just going away for the weekend next week - Thüringer Wald.
I ordered an Xplorer Topcase from H&B, but there is still no bracket available - due middle of May.

The Topcase and the bag are more than enough for me as I don't travel for as long or as far as you - and I have a job  :007:

When i take off the brackets (within seconds and without tools) the only thing left on the bike would be that small support rubber piece on both sides - on the footpeg. Looks a bit battered there but no worries it's only the duct tape after that week long journey  :016:

Nah you're right there Doc sure they are big .... but i really like them especially if you are two up and on long tours, or if your camping. Travelling alone or short trips they sure are too big, i'd rather have a small bag tied on the back too of course.
