I am a big fan of US Saddlebags! I had a pair on my previous bike and loved them so much, I wanted to keep them for my new Triumph Thunderbird 1600. So I ordered the mounting brackets from US and attempted to mount my bags. I have to say the mounting instructions are pretty much useless. The instructions say to attach to the front and rear fender bolts. There are three on a triumph. The fron bolt is 10mm and the other two are 8mm. I only received 8mm bolts with kit. Also there is no way it mounts like that because the spacing of the bracket is either for the first two holes or the last two holes. I ended up using the last two holes because they were 8mm. It actually worked and looks good on the bike, but the rear bolts have a shoulder and are not quite long enough, so the rear mount is not tight. I think US should take a look at their instructions and hardware sent with this kit.
