Those are Ghost Brackets.  I have never had any personal experience with them. They don't look to be as well constructed as the Easy Brackets.  Easy Brackets are NOT going to deform unless maybe you drive over them with a truck or something.

Aha - thanks.  I am now going to see if EZ brackets will do the trick while retaining the on/off convenience.  Hopefully the bolt holes will line up!


Bolt holes are adjustable

The holes aren't adjustable on the Easy Brackets.  Easy Brackets are bike specific.

Serious???  I want to see them.  The only ones I have dealt with are for the Stryker, the V-Star 1100 custom and the V-Star 650 custom and they were all only two holes in each and were not adjustable.  Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're referring to.

Yep... seriously.   
I actually purchased them through Tejas.

Unfortunately there are no pictures of the Raider Easy Bracket on the Easy Bracket website.

I have to say this... They make an excellent product and seem like some decent guys, but they have one of the most dated and horrible looking websites I've ever seen.

Ok, now I'm confused. I have the Easy Brackets for my Raider and the bolt holes are fixed; not adjustable. I've never heard of EZ brackets, or any kind of QR bracket with adjustable bolt holes. Unless T is referring to the fact that you can "adjust" where you drill the holes in your bags for mounting?  :shrug:

I'm not doubting you, T. You've proven your reliability numerous times; I'm just confused.
Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.

I think T may be confussed, I have Edge Brackets, they are adjustable, I have never seen the Easy Brackets so I am unsure if they are adjustable or not.  However I can not find anywhere on the Easy Bracket web site that states they are adjustable or not.

Yes. Easy Brackets.   I think T and Bill both posted links for it.

I just type "EZ" sometimes because it's EZer, but this time I think it just made things more difficult.

Kind of like you would never search for "SAC".
