Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I want to buy Easy Brackets?

Everyone will have their own particular reasons. However some of the most common are:

  • To eliminate damage to the paint on the rear fender with throw over saddlebags.
  • To be able to remove the bags in seconds when you arrive at your destination and reinstall them in seconds when you are ready to leave.
  • To return your bike to a clean cruising look.
  • To be able to install your bags to avoid conflicts such as high shot gun pipes.
How do Easy Brackets work?

Easy Brackets are shipped with all the hardware necessary to mount them to your motorcycle with only basic tools. The kit comes with (4) stainless steel docking posts which are mounted to your motorcycle fender rail with polished stainless steel bolts. They will replace the existing fender mounting bolts. The bracket is then mounted to the back of the saddlebags with the hardware provided. The bracket then slides onto the docking posts and locks into place.

Are the Easy Brackets safe and secure?

Yes. The brackets are constructed of 12 gauge steel. The brackets are equipped with a keyed locking mechanism for security when mounted to the motorcycle.

Read Bob's journey to Easy Brackets and Great Bike Gear

You could call me the father of the Quick Detach Saddlebag System. In 1998, two partners and I developed and patented the first detachable saddlebag system, Bag Eez. Bag Eez soon became Ghost Brackets. In 2002, the partnership was dissolved and I went in search of a better system. Believe it or not, Easy Brackets came to me in a dream. I woke up at about 3am, got up, made some notes in my day planner, and went back to bed. The next morning, I wondered if it had been real so I went to my day planner and there it was – Easy Brackets. I went to a very successful friend and asked him if he thought I should go through with this. He advised me to always provide a quality product and excellent customer service and I would be fine. I took his advice and in 2002, I founded Great Bike Gear with Easy Brackets as our primary product. Through the years, we have seen the competition come and go. I like to think it is because we have always established ourselves as the standard in quality, are made in the USA, and maintain a level of great customer service. The journey has been exciting and I have met some wonderful people along the way. I do have to admit I never anticipated I would end my career knowing all there is to know about the ass end of every cruiser on the market- go figure!
