    New member, Just purchased a new 16  VFR1200X here in Baltimore Md. this weekend. Love the bike and now I'm looking for a set of Shad 3P mounting brackets for my new bike. I already have a set of 36L cases.  Want to get set up for some road trips quickly.  Thanks all.

     :400: along buddy. I have the standard Honda panniers on my bike, so no help at all with your brackets.

     :400: smoothbored— can’t help you on the brackets, but do PM me if you’re up Minnesota way — the beer is better here

    Congrats on the new bike!  No help on the brackets.  How is the riding in MD?  One of the few states that I have not visited.  In any case, ride safe and enjoy the bike.

    MZFla.   I live in Powhatan Va.  traveled to B-more 3.5 hours to get my bike. Northern Va. DC. B-more  area  is a driving hell hole. I always head west into the boonies of Va. the more remote the better.

    Gotcha.  I suppose you have the same problem up there as we do down here...half drunk tourists with not a care in the world...and especially uncaring about driving with common sense and the idea that they are sharing the road.  We try to go toward the center of the state too.  Less traffic...pretty but little water.
