Hey man could you message him on DT and tell him I'm interested and maybe give him my email or tell him to check his PM on this forum? I haven't heard back from him and I'm not on DT. No rush though actually, I'll be out of town until the week of the 4th, so it can wait.
Anyway.....I want to brag about my wife some more
This thread has turned into a truck/bike mod thread. My wife made me a tail bag for the bike tonight!!! Pretty sweet, and was free!
First I want to say sorry the pics suck but it's really dark in my garage, I'll post better ones later. This turned out really nice for a free project.
First I took an old tank bag from that I used on my old suzuki(I think I bought it at cycle gear years ago). My wife cut the flaps off that had magnets in them. Then she cut the magnets in the bag out. Then she sewed some straps(nylon????) on to the underside of the bag:
Then I happened to have an extra passenger seat with a tear in it that would work out perfectly for this so I used it to "permanently" strap the bag to:
I used a lighter to burn the bolt holes and ends so they wouldn't continue to fray. The way we did this is very secure.
The size and fit is pretty damn good. It's also very secure and is a larger bag so I can carry a lot of cargo. I got lucky and had an extra seat so I can just swap it if I want to have a passenger(although honestly someone could just sit on the bag...). I'm sure one could sew buckles on though to make it releasable.
What do you all think!?
