FYI to everyone: This is an old thread from last November that got resurrected. See my post #7 below in this thread responding to JoeCruiser's post #5.
I already posted this info on the Delphi forum so please disregard this if you saw it over there.
A couple of months ago I send an email to Corbin telling them they should get on the ball and start making Beetle Bags that would install on Vulcan 2000's with sissybars mounted on them. I got tired of waiting to hear back from them so I went ahead and ordered hard bags from Champion. Well, the UPS guy just delivered my bags from Champion and five minutes later when I checked my email I got the below response from Corbin:
Thanks for writing and we appreciate your feedback. We've received a few requests for sissy bar-enabled beetle bags on the VN2000, so it's something we'll forward to R & D for consideration. Seems a lot of you Vulcan owners want your storage space along with passenger support - hey it's only natural that if you have a passenger, you have the space to store their stuff right?
If you happen to be a member of an online forum, maybe you can post a thread gauging interest in a redesigned beetle bag system to accommodate a sissy bar/luggage rack setup.
I hope this info helps - if you have any other questions feel free to give us a call at 800-223-4332 or 800-538-7035 (or 831-634-1100 outside the US) and one of our reps will be ready to assist you. Thanks for your interest with Corbin, it's much appreciated.
At this point I don't really give a rat's *** what Corbin does with their V2K beetle bags as I got my new Champion bags and I'm sure I'll be happy with them. I'm just posting this so that others who might want Beetle bags on their Vulcan 2000's with passenger backrests should send emails to Corbin telling to get with it. Maybe then they will do what they should have done from day one and start making them with this option. Thanks for letting me rant.
