Hi JRider,

I have those Kriega bags on my '17 T100. I like them a lot. I have side supports and luggage rack from https://www.fehling.de/ both are not required. You can just use the side supports. They fit really well with the Kreiga bags. I did not even have to tinker with strap length to get them to work.

I wish I'd found those Kriega bags before I bought mine. Also am impressed with those Fehling racks - may have to change out mine. Price looks good too.

Website kind of pointless as they don't show example pictures of any of the racks on any of the bikes. Could you snap a few of your setup please? For now, the factory saddlebags and supports are fine with Kriega supplements that tie right onto the T120 seat but sometime down the road I may consider something more substantial. So far the Kriega soft luggage system (I think I have 30+20+20) is plenty for 2 week trips on the VFR.

Ah but they do. First be sure to click on the American/British flag in the upper right to get things into English, then select products/prices, the Bikemodels, and there you will find Triumph. That will bring up a list of the various models and products for each one. On the left end of each product line is a link to a photo of the item on the bike:

Then there is Longride.be

This hardware allows you to use their quick lock system. Not sure if the have the bracket in black. If they sell the quick lock piece by itself, you could mount it to a non Longride bag.
I agree with you on the appearance of the Triumph racks, but you missed the OP has a 2017. Triumph changed the location of the rear rack mounting lugs that year so earlier versions won't fit. It's the two per side threaded mounts by the seat latch that have changed, probably when they went to a locking latch mechanism. Thus the first one you list clearly won't fit and the second one is unlikely to. I spent a lot of money and returned a lot of products before I finally learned that. That's the dilemma for us with 2017 and later bikes - nothing really nice fits!
I was working with Great Bike Gear to design Easy Bracket mountings for the T120 but they delayed the project to work on mountings for HD.

I have newly released longride.be mountings for my 2017 t120. Don’t know if they would fit the 2017 t100. These bags are 22L each, a compromise between tiny pouches and Trekker or Hepco Becker.

Agree, the website is not the best. I do not have the best photos either but these should help.
