    After serval iterations I finally have a quick release bracket finalized for the scooter. For now I’m testing with a laptop bag, but this is a perfect platform for me to attach any bag or case without having to buy or modify hardware for each “bag”.

    This is the third style of mount that I made. The first was a traditional panier style frame, the second was a molle style panel but ultimately this style (inspired by a quick release fire extinguisher mount) ended up being the easiest and sturdiest.


    After some finessing on the bracket to lighten it visually and literally.

    and finally some texture matching with a wrinkle finish.

    This is still in a testing phase and I may try to minimize the bracket further as I get more miles with it.

    Looks a lot better all painted and cleaned up. The wrinkle paint blends in with the struts really well.

    Love it! Not sure if you are planning on it or not but a lanyard for the quick release pin on the bag side of the bracket will make life easier too.

    These are the ones I grabbed and have held up well:

    Can see a similar setup on my rack:

    Thanks dude! I was going to use a paracord lanyard. I do the same thing when I build my tire carriers for the hitch pin to prevent unnecessary rattles. Those stianless ones would actually come in handy for some other projects I have though! Ordering some now.

    Looks great. Nice welds! Only thing I would change is the mounting hardware. Rounded allen head bolts over hex head.

    I was just using what I had on hand but it’s a grade 8 shoulder head bolt so it’s enough for now. If it bothers me later I’ll probably swap it out.

    Do I need a dual sport? Or will the Sporty make it?

    The Sporty will make it. I don't think @FreshOldTaco has a dual sport

    Agreed you'll be ok on that, @fatfurious2 rode that distance on the 48 I think.

    I will take my Bolt up there if I don't get some type of luggage setup for the FZ. It gets windy after a while but not too bad.
