Beauty. Do the saddlebags interfere with the airflow to the filter?.
Even though I may not go down the saddlebag or even tank bag route, I am both ,grateful and truly impressed that people with skill and passion can apply their craft to benefit your average mug lair GRiSO owner. Were it not for the likes of Onur ,Beetle ,Steak and the folks that developed Guzzidiag Mr roper,and all the people that have put their efforts and thoughts to fruition we would be ridin bikes that were under developed and not reachin their full and mighty potential. I dips my lid to you Onur.

No. They don't interfere with airflow.

GIVI doesn't make stuff for us cause our bikes are not mass produced, me think.
Investing in the engineering will bring back small dividends to cover that cost.
But we, Guzzi maniacs, will make our own shit then!

C Bow and HB bags came in a few weeks ago.  Went on nice and easy.  Look great!  Happy to have some storage.

Hi guys, I have just received my Hepco C Bow and put it on. Unfortunately the rear bit touches the bike. has anyone experienced something like that? Shall I put an extra washer on to keep the distance? Or can anyone suggest something?
Cheers,
Laszlo

Assume you mean the rear bracket touches the bodywork where it comes up; I checked and mine touches on RHS (as you sit on bike) but only just. I'd washer it lower or bend the bracket down a touch unless it is miles out.

Thanks for the quick reply Smile yes the bracket and it is on the rhs. Seems it is a general issue. I put a washer on then but alos let Hepco know abut it.

I used the same tool bag but put it on the rear rack.  My custom seat has no tool space so tools and flat tire stuff stay in there.  It also provides a bum stop in case Ms. Guzziownr needs a lift into town. Onur's tankring is visible in the picture, I have yet to use my Xmas gift of a Givi tankbag.

I see from the C-Bow parts list that they sell the part/bracket that goes on the bags. This would allow one to, technically, get bigger bags adapted or made to order. On a longer trip, I find the 22 litres each side to be a trifle too small - not enough grog can be stored/carried in them, especially when said bottles are wrapped in clean undies!

Anyone made/adapted their own bags?

I know Pete Roper has barge arse bags that are nearly as wide as a truck (plays hell with filtering), maybe I don't need to go quite that wide.

I know it's not everyone's cup o' tea, but here's my setup and I'm quite happy with it.

You have to keep your cup-o-tea ingredients/implements somewhere, Pete.
