I believe I have the Edge brackets, I love them, take them both off or put them back on in about 20 seconds, solid construction, very adaptable, and when they are off you can't tell you have saddle bag mounts, unless you know what you are looking for.

Rated 10 out of 10 purchase for me.

I've been using Easy Brackets for several years on my Heritage and like them. They do move the bags out away from the fender about an inch or so, and they do rattle a little when going over a hard bump. They are good, heavy duty and easy to use. The mounting hardware on the bike when they are off looks as good as any IMO. I don't have any experience with any other brands.

my leatherpro bags on my dyna came with a quick detach system...love it,10 out of 10 for me as well.I can't say enough good about those bags.

it's built in,but same idea as EZ brackets.EZ brackets makes several innovative items that are all very well made.I used their tailight re-location and hand guards on both bikes.

I've had the EZ Brackets for 5 years and have had no problems with them. Many times the bags have been overloaded, but it had no negative affect on the brackets.

(The only time mine rattle is when the bags are empty. But if they're empty, they're not on the bike long)

Thanks guys! I will either get ez bracket or edge, the kuryakyn bags I am going to buy team up with edge brackets, I am sure both brackets fit my bags.

Another +1 for the ez brackets, had mine since 2007 and will definitely use them again on other bikes.

If you haven't picked up bags yet check out fox creek leather, love their bags, nice THICK leather, and go great with the ez brackets...which I believe they sell as well.

I've got the EZ brackets or Ghost Brackets (I can't remember which) for mY Deuce. I've got the leather factory saddlebags with the hard plastic back - I've shimmed the brackets to be straight & level. They worked awesome, and I've had them for years. I'm actually putting them up for sale (new project with the Deuce - I have an Ultra for long trips). I just need to do 10 posts before it will let me post in the classifieds lol.

This is a pic of the brackets on the bike without the bags. Brackets stay on permanently.

Thank-you for the compliment on the seat. Johnny Roberti did it for me. He does awesome work. He's on-line, also. I sent him the pan from my LePera, with some templates for the artwork I wanted tooled into the leather. He'll do whatever you want with the seat. Really nice guy; exceptional customer service.

KEYBEAR wants to know where he is and how he got here
I never thought I would have bags on a street bike . But I bought a used Wide Glide with Harley Bags on it and thought I would get rid of them ASAP . Wrong I found i really like the storage . So I live with them I can have my coat a sweat shirt or most things I pick up in town . But I do take them off to wash the bike . The ez brackets look like a good idea ?
