    I'm considering mounting C Bags on my Eldorado and I would like to get some feedback and / or photos. Also has anyone mounted a tank bag on their Eldorado.

    I got the small tank bag from MG. Haven't used it yet on a trip, waiting for the weather to cool down a bit.

    I've got the Buffalo bags on my Eldo and they work really well. The only small gripe is that because of the rear shocks they dont mount as close to the bike as I would like.

    Thanks for your reply. I see what you mean about the bags. There are not a lot of choices out there. I'm surprised that Givi doesn't offer something?

    Maybe the market is too small for Givi, but Hepco Becker are on the ball, I bought mine in 2015 and I had to buy the C bows for the Cali and mess around getting them to fit because the mudguard is different, now they make a dedicated Eldo set up.

    DE5DB97A-F412-41C8-8401-A0F2EABC27BC.jpeg I have c-bow bags on my Custom and couldn’t be happier. My only complaint is that the brackets mount at an angle and therefore the bags are not truly horizontal. Nevertheless, it is something I am now use to and while it would be possible to modify them, I have chosen to leave them as is.

    They do seem to come thru for the non masses. I just order the C Bow system for my Ducati XDiavel, also a small market. I went with their new “Rugged” bag. 24 liter which is too small for a Guzzi 1400 but perfect for my Ducati.
    By the way the Buffalo bags look great! Almost the same shape as the OEM Ca 1400 bags.
