This message is addressed to "thebru". In your very first message, of this topic, you indicate you might be able to help. I just purchased Venture Hard Saddlebags along with all the Mounting Brackets and Guard Stays. What am I going to have to do to make this work for me?? Might you have pictures of what your mounting brkts. look like without the Saddlebags? Would I be using the Guard Stays to mount the Guards? You help will be greatly appreciated. I did try to find the earlier threads, but could not find them.
On the following link, another person placed the Venture Hard Saddlebags. He to, shows the mounting Brackets without the bags. I do see an extra piece at the lower front mounting to the frame. Is your method similar to the attached? and/or were extra brackets added on yours??
Again, I do thank you very much for your help and advise.
