    What's up guys?! I bought an R3R back a month or two ago and it had the Triumph leather bags. I'll never be riding two up, so I took off the Corbin Dual seat and replaced it with the Corbin Fast Gun solo seat. As soon as I did that, I disliked the way the bags looked with seat - they were positioned up too high. I also love seeing more of the fender.

    So, this morning I removed the bags and I really like the look. I won't often need the bags unless I'm taking a trip. I've thought about getting easy brackets, but it would seem they might not work with the Triumph bags and hangers. I saw the attached pic with a single bag the other day and am intrigued by it.

    Anyone ever do anything like that? Would there be any ramifications for having a bag on only one side of the bike?

    Unfortunately, I don't. I don't remember where I got it, but if I come across it again, I'll post it up.

    Never cared much for the single bag look. think I would do a roll bag behind the seat.
