A few hours in the workshop and I knocked up a set of racks for my soft bags.
Firstly the exhausts are not stock so they came up too high for off the shelf racks and I didnt want to relocate the indicators so it had to be a custom job.
I used to strap the bags directly to the bike but they started wearing down the paint which I didn't like.
Some scrap metal, some bolts, threaded bar, some flexible ducting, a welder, grinder and drill is really all I used.
Have a look at the pics :)

I used some round iron and bent it into the shape you see then welded it up, what looks like rebar is flexible pvc electrical ducting left over from a job at work, total cost of this job was about 5 euro :)
