So, as you can see in the photos, I overload my soft bags and they eventually begin to sag and tuck under towards the rear tire and muffler. Too cheap to spring for the C-bow setup, but having burned through a few bags in the past (and finding clothing hanging out), it was time for a "Guzzi" solution (read : cheap).
So I made these "guards" to keep bags out and away from hot and spinning objects, they don't look too gawd awful bad from a distance and I only run them with the soft bags on.

Oh, and I turned 30k miles on the mighty GRiSO this morning.
Zero issues, save for a burned out low beam bulb..🙂

Pretty elegant solution to an inelegant sag, Tazio!

If you really were cheap, you'd not have that Corbin saddle. Wink

BTW, even the C-Bow system soft bags sag, and the C-Bow hard bags (Orbits) will only carry your credit cards to buy what you need but can't carry on the road.

P.S. The Corbin was bought with my kids College fund...

Corbin is looking good still Tazio!

I like your new setup...very elegant. Maybe even coat the silver bars in black? 30K is great, bet the bike is smooth as silk!

Good idea on the bars, though I like the raw aluminium, I may grab the spray can!
And yes, after this first 30k miles, she's just now hitting her stride. Smooth and powerful..

Oh, and also PJPR01, been over 3 1/2 years since I got the Corbin from you. Worth its weight in gold!!

I thought of you yesterday Bill. I passed the Oscar Meyer weenie mobile heading towards Augusta.

Yeah, I know where you’re coming from there! I have the “Street” version of the H&B C-Bow bags. Great mounting system, very clean, but once you pop in a puncture repair kit, tyre pressure gauge a few incidentals and a pair of shoes, that’s one bag filled and 50% of your capacity gone before you even think of a change of clothes etc.

As for the waterproof inner bag, it’s big enough to sleep in. What the hell were they thinking? It’s 5 times larger than the bags!
