I’ve been starting to do more distance riding and overnight trips on the bike and am hoping to do a bike camping trip late this summer which means it’s time for more storage and luggage options for the Warrior.

Unlike every Harley ever, options for this bike are very limited and expensive and I didn’t happen to like any of them, so I decided to design and build my own. Being an engineer with access to professional modeling software and a laser cutter certainly makes this easier, but there are lots of free CAD programs and several places that will cut parts for you if a person without professional resources wants to do it themselves.

I’m pretty happy with it so far, still needs a couple of things to be complete like mounts for a backrest, and potentially a mount for an auxiliary fuel tank, but overall I’m happy with the look, size, and fitment.

Hopefully I’ll have it finalized and cut within the next week or so, next up on the list is mounts for new saddle bags. I’ve got a couple of sets of throw-overs but the set that was on it is getting pretty worn out and tired, and the other set looked far more at home on my old Sportster than this bike. A buddy of mine however has a nice set of hard mount bags that should look pretty nice so I’ll have to see what it’s gonna take to get those mounted up. After that it’s time for road trippin!
