Wink From naked to touring in 10 minutes

This is one of the reasons I bought the Gunner, so I could do this whenever I wanted.

Vic Lock-n-Ride bags, Cortech Tank bag, Condor swingarm pouch, Emgo portable travel trunk. OR... nothing at all.

Sure:

The Vic Lock-n-ride saddlebags are overpriced $h1t, as far as I'm concerned. BUT, what I like about them and why I bought them is because the brackets mount to the bags, not to the bike, so they literally leave *NO* footprint at all on the bike when removed, except for two bolts on each side. (Look close at naked photo in first post and you can spot them.) The saddlebags do lock, and the bracket also locks onto the bolts. $700+ from a dealership, even online you won't get much cheaper. But you also won't get any naked-er when they're removed, which is done in seconds.

The trunk is an Emgo (whatever that is?) portable travel trunk, a quick search will show them on Amazon for $65 but I think I paid even less. I know they're not Givi, but... they're $65! And it locks, and it pops right off the baseplate (photo below, on my Scrambler not the gunner) which screws to the rack nice and solid. I've used that trunk a LOT, and never a leak, never a false pop-open, never a problem. Sturdy handle and can swallow a full-face helmet locked inside.

The swing-arm bag was recommended by user Hogeyphenogey, it's the MA54 T&T pouch. Secures great with 4 straps, and has small compartments inside. It fits my travel 1st aid pouch perfectly to the millimeter, so now that doesn't have to take up room in a saddlebag. $20.95 at Rangemonkey website and I think it mighta been free shipping too.

The tank bag is a Cortech mini magnetic tank bag, which seems from a google search to be an older model, but I'm pretty sure they all act the same. Mine has a detachable waterproof map window on top, and a nice suede-y bottom so it doesn't scratch the tank as long as it's clean.

I have the stock Victory rack, works fine for my purposes, no complaints about build or look.

Can I ask a favor? Can you post a side shot or two with the bags installed? I'd like to see how big the bags look on the bike.

Thanks in advance.

The mounting plate comes with two thin metal rails, basically they will screw through any rack in most any configuration, so I do think it's more or less "universal" as Emgo claims.

The rails seem to hold very securely once tightened in place, I've never had any issue of 'wiggle' on my Triumph or Victory racks.

And Triumph900, I'll aim to get some additional pics sooner than later to post!
