    I looked at Twisted Throttle and 2nd-gear (the latter an online supplier of all things Givi in Canada). The PLX770 side case racks are no longer available.

    YUP! Those early RS with the Corbin bags were very sharp. $1,500 was pretty steep for bags back in those days.

    DIY can pay off got a bud put some brand on his wife's '13ST here's the info he shared about it: I got them off E bay. But. Here is the link to the actual store they come from. http://m.siriusconinc.com/products-d...roduct_id=6870 The saddle bag part no - 56-9991. The mount bracket part no 16-2933. These are for her 2013 STS. You need to make sure of correct parts for his Model. Then there was this for F3 :

    Check these out. They say that they come with brackets made for the RS.

    Here is a set of yellow Givi bags. Sorry, not mounting hardware.

    YUP! I had GIVI's on both the 2008 and 2009. Saved about $500 over the Corbins.

    I don't think Givi makes them anymore.

    Givi discontinued the mounts years ago for the Spyder RS. I was able to find a used set of PLX770 mounts on eBay. The bags themselves are identical to the BRP bags (actually Givi units rebadged). If you're handy with welding and bending rods, you could order or buy a used mounting rack for any bike, and weld on the attachments. If you're interested, PM me and I can take a few photos of my setup to give you a rough idea how its attached.

    I am very handy and can make my own supports yes.. but I would love to see how yours are mounted Thank you! It would be a great head start in seeing how they are actually mounted and the positioning.. so hopefully I can get it right!
