I post it here instead of making a new thread, hope it's the right place to post. I haven't re-enforced my sub-frame, yet. Yesterday I went to several hardware stores nearby looking for alumunium plate for the sub-frame enforcement, but haven't found any. Apparently I'll have to go to stores that specialize in selling aluminium, and I haven't done it. Anyway, if I use Kriega tail bag and mount it on my bike like in the picture below, will this bag, in this position, stress the sub-frame? I figure it won't, cause the bag is placed forward and looks to me that most of the weight is supported by the seat but I often wrong Second question, can anyone here who use Kriega tail bag show me how they position or where they attach the rear hooks /straps? The front hooks are strapped to the frame underneath the seat, while the rear hooks are strapped to the passenger grab rail. It works that way ... but I want a cleaner look Thanks in advance guys.
