AT Bags on A Budget

Didn't want to spend a small fortune on equipment for my 2017 AT DCT purchased damaged. Keeping costs down by getting Tusk bag mounts from Rocky Mountain ATV and Pelican look alike bags from Harbor Freight. $29.95 per bag at HF on sale. Found fairing and case bars from Heed of Poland. $305 shipped to me in US. Both items are well made and strong.

Mind sharing a few pics of the way you mounted them to the racks and if you had it to do again anything you might have done differently?

The bracket kit from Tusk is designed to be using their bags or Pelican bags. Since the Harbor Freight ones are a copy of the Pelicans the quick release mount brackets are included in the kit. They include a method to secure the bags against theft.

Are you getting any bounce from the cases? Specifically the top case?

No they're solid. Rough back roads haven't affected them.

Wow, wish I would have seen this before buying the TUSK aluminum panniers. The pannier rack came with all the mounting hardware and brackets so it would have been a cinch to install the pelican like cases.
