To the frame; there's a thick gauge steel mounting bracket that screws into the same location as the rear foot peg, that protrudes out and hangs down, then the mounting kit has a second mirror image steel screw plate that goes on the inside of the bag once the holes are lined up and drilled.. (literally a 10 to 15 min job.. no biggie)... to the bag and it's back hard internal panel is sandwiched between two steel plates.. needless to say it aint going no where..... it comes with easy to follow instructions/directions.. but also pretty quickly figured out without them... so they're a good backup. I'll take a snapshot of the mounting kit from behind when I get a chance. It's a really nice setup. I haven't looked at it close enough to determine if there may be a way to get both Bag mount and Passenger Foot Rest connected at the same time... but for now I hardly ever ride with a passenger so I don't have a huge drive to figure that out.. It would be really awesome to fine another mounting kit that is designed for the other side, that clears the belt.. it would then give a perspective of albeit smaller but lower profile and inline saddle bags. I know they're expensive but now that I paid for them, attached them to the bike, and am psyched on how they look... I'd recommend it.. and would pay for it again.
Just so we clear it does come with leather mounting straps if you don't get the mounting kit... but I have no idea how well those work; do have to be honest and say I doubt very much anyone would dig the straps over the hard mounting kit.. but that's just my opinion.
Thanks for checking it out.
