I'm considering getting a set of "Easy Brackets" mounts for my saddlebags. My concern is that the bags will not be as stable/secure as when using standard fixed-mount brackets (flex, vibration, etc).

If you currently use; or, have previously used Easy Brackets - I would appreciate any/all feedback regarding your experiences with this mounting option!

Regards,
CFM

I used a locally made equivalent of the Easy Brackets with no problems. I had them on an Indian Scout and the panniers were large enough for me to pack for a few weeks touring. You can see the stainless steel bracket on the left side. The bobbins bolted into the subframe and the brackets slid over them.

I use Easy Mounts with large Viking hard cases with the shock cutouts. Easy install and no problems. Very secure whether empty or fully loaded.

I have used them for many years however I found out the hard way that even an aircraft nut can come loose. I lost a very nice Saddleman bag somewhere on a back road one day driving the road next day looking for it to no avail. I sure hope that someone has it on display in their man cave and it didnt get chewed up by machinery. I replaced the bag with a different type but have kept the Easybrackets.
