  1. Here's another quick video to show some uses beyond the standard bag. https://youtu.be/Kg3LcGGKTVY We're happy to sell additional receivers and plates so you can mount more than the standard bag to your bike.
  2. Hi everyone. Just responding to the question from @Skibum4106 : Yes, the system includes saddlebags. To give a little different view of the bags, here is a link to a video showing the locking mechanism of the low mount system. The bags would be the same for the high mount, but locking the bags to the bike is slightly different. https://youtu.be/8Rtq-WXzF5I
  3. Hi @topazsparrow. The bags get kind of addictive. I always carry extra earplugs, water, a rag to clean my visor, etc. I can get a surprising amount of groceries and stuff in the bags, and I also always carry a cinch type backpack in the bags, just in case I need a little extra space. I think the utility of them may depend what you use your bike for. I use my bike every day I can in the summer, so the extra space is nice to have for errands and for always having the little stuff that makes riding easier handy. Just my $0.02 - lots of ways to make riding work. Safe riding! James
  4. Hi @Randucci Here are some Shrike Mounts luggage system pics for the two FZ-07 configurations. The high mount is what is currently shown on our website www.ShrikeMounts.com. It's the original configuration for stock FZ-07's, and it should also work with most variations of fender eliminator with smaller turn signals. We think it's got a nice, clean look. This system is currently on sale, while supplies last. The low mount system moves the bags a little lower on the bike. This configuration was originally designed for bikes that have a fender eliminator and larger turn signals such as the OEM signals. (It's also suitable for all of other typical FZ-07 setups that we've seen.) The low mount’s advantage is that it has a cleaner mechanism for locking the system to the peg, and we anticipate moving exclusively to this configuration for all FZ-07's long-term. Any questions, feel free to contact us at ShrikeMounts@gmail.com. And free shipping applies for FZ07.org references, through July 27, 2018. Thanks! - Suzanne

    Hi @pattonme Our standard bags are semi-rigid and have a reinforced section where they mount to the plate. Most soft bags still have a bit of reinforcement where the straps attach to the bags. If someone wants to use their soft bag, we've historically just cut off the straps and mounted the bags to the plate through that reinforced area. The bag "hangs" from the plate the same way it would hang from the strap. If you had a set of bags you wanted to mount to our plates, we could talk you through it pretty easily. Thanks, James & Suzanne

    Lots of choices out there and lots of reasons to choose one system over another. Our system is just an option that really tries to maximize ease of use and minimize the impact on aesthetics. We did have a Ninja 650 customer tell us they had a parking lot fall and the system protected the plastics from damage. He just popped the dents out of the bag and said you couldn't even tell it had been in a fall. We've had a couple of other "crash tests" and other than some road rash the bags and mounting system held up fine. I wouldn't claim they prevent crash damage, but they do hold up pretty well.

    Hi everyone. We've had lots of requests for larger bags. We don't have a larger bag under our brand, but part of what's nice about the system is the flexibility. Here are some pictures of Nelson Rigg's CL-890 bags mounted on our system. We haven't done a lot of testing with the larger bags yet, but we thought we'd share them here on the forum since folks have asked about it.

    Ship International

    Sorry for the delayed response; we missed the new thread. We've shipped to Canada and have looked into shipping to other countries as well (shipping, duties, and taxes can get pretty costly for non-NAFTA countries). For specific questions, you can submit an order inquiry form on our website www.ShrikeMounts.com. Just include your country and postal code, and we'll get back to you.

    Hello again. The locking system for the bags is also available on the high mount bags. You would have to just use a lock or fastener to lock the system to the bike. This is shown earlier in the thread if you're interested. Happy riding, James & Suzanne

    Hello, You might have noticed we went a little quiet here at ShrikeMounts. We listened to your feedback and used it to make some tweaks to our design. Attached is a video showing our updated "low" configuration. This set up will allow you to lock the bags and to lock them to your bike. It will also fit any configuration of turn signals/fender eliminators (at least that we've seen to date) and has a few aesthetic improvements as well. Hopefully helps meet your needs. Let us know if you have any questions. James & Suzanne Oh yeah - we also worked on fitting the Ninja 300, Ninja 650 and we're working on more models all the time. Feel free to aim your friends who ride our way! [video src=https://youtu.be/8Rtq-WXzF5I]

    Thanks for the pics, @myrcode! Nice bike! We're happy that the install was quick and that you're pleased with the look of the mounted system. Yes, you're the first to receive the new locking feature. That option was developed after we received requests for it through this forum. The direct communication at FZ07.org has been great, allowing us to evolve the system to better meet members' needs. Enjoy your Shrike Mounts luggage system!

    Hi @pattybags. Since the ShrikeMounts system sits below the seat line and doesn't touch the bodywork or the seat, it should be fine with a Corbin (or any other) seat. Since you said "we" I'll ask if you do much 2 up riding? As mentioned in the forum, it does replace the passenger pegs, so you can't carry a passenger while the system is installed. Changing back and forth is pretty quick (see our youtube video on installation.) [video src=https://youtu.be/0l7tg6XvvlM]

    Hi @DewMan. I don't have a bag big enough for your helmet, but I could probably make you a plate with a hook so you could cable lock it to the bike or carry an extra helmet.
