Fitted a set of bags on my icon today, what a bloody joke, I can't understand how a genuine accessories don't fit and no instructions. 1st thing to fit bracket mount you need to remove the fender to screw bolts in. 2nd once the mounting bracket is fitted it obstructs the bolts to fit the fender back on (you can't get an allen key to them) so what should have take 20 minutes took 2 hours of stuffing around. I could understand if they where cheap aftermarket bags but NO $500.

If you think thats hard, try fitting the Classic mudguards on the Icon :ambivalence: Took me 6 hours, at the end I had 4 screws left over and had to find bits and pieces of my own to complete.
Very much a nightmare and all without instructions, still the outcome looks very good and keeps the s*** of my back when wet.:smug:

Alan, Best thing!!! I use the small bag all the time to carry all those thinks like glasses wallet, gloves, water stuff like that, and the bigger bag for my laptop or or a bit of shopping. looking at doing a butterfly bolt to easy take off the main bag bracket when not in use. also easy to slip the gab off and just carry just like a normal bag

Cool. Thanks. I have the Urban Enduro tank bag now.

I am thinking about riding the bike to Las Vegas (from Seattle, about 1150 miles). Parts of any direct route include stretches that approach the limit of the fuel range, so I need somewhere to carry a couple of fuel bottles.

Can anybody upload a picture of what the frames look like when the bags aren't on the bike please. Also, some idea (perhaps as a photo of a couple of stacks) of how much stuff you can realistically pack in them would be helpful. Thanks in advance :wav:
