Krausers invoke a love/hate response. I love the look on a /5, and they have adequate space. However, the way they attach to the bike and the locks were never good even when new. They certainly don’t age well. Many machines ride around with a bungee cord as insurance. The ones in question here have the seat belt latches at the rear. I can modify them (and have on a previous bike) to stay attached using a small hole and connection to the rack, so that is not my concern. I want them to look stock (ie: no bungee), stay closed at speed with contents inside, and have a lock that cannot simply be opened with any screwdriver. Stay tuned for the proposed solution….
