One of the best features of this system is that there are no modifications required to attach it to your bike. It cleverly makes use of the existing bolts (no extra bolts are required) already on your bike. There's no drilling, welding or any of that to damage your bike. What's more? It hides behind the railing on your bike so it's virtually invisible to the casual observer. What's even better? Your tail lights get to stay in their standard location. That's right, they don't have to be moved! That allows you to maintain your bike's original appearance and still be able to attach saddle bags with ease.
