    My Big Dummy with 2010 Freeloader bags



    I just got my big dummy and I upgraded to the new Freeloader bags because I wanted to sell my FreeRad, but the bags were pretty chewed up.

    I'm thinking I'll swap out the handlebars at some point, but the bike is a great ride as is.

    I love it.

    Nice! Our bags are getting a little worn out, but on the plus side, I don't have to worry about water pooling in the bottom . Will have to add the new ones to the (always-increasing) list.

    I was toying with the idea of buying a new speed machine next spring, but I have become completely fascinated with the BD. The Dummy seems to reflect more of a bike lifestyle than a bike hobby.

    The orange bags look great.

    Here ya go:

    This is the new understated logo:


    The new bags look and feel just like a Timbuk2 bag:


    They eliminated the mesh and added these. They are taller than the older bags:


    A view from the rear:


    Bag installation no longer requires removal of the racks:


    They added a hole for water to run out of and apparently the pocket is waterproof:

    How do you like the new bags over the old style? It looks like they did away with the small inside mesh pocket. I use that one alot for my tools and wallet.
    Life is good O^o
