I saw these posted on the Board some time ago, and thought they looked good:

http://www.easybrackets.com/index.htm

I contacted the manufacturer, and got a nice phone call back. They don't have them for the M109 -- but they ARE working on it, and hope to have 'em in production (or at least close to it) in about 60 days.

Tons of guys with the Warriors use them and they work great. I hope they make them soon for you all. You'll love them.

For the above poster, if you read the first post it stated in about 60 days. ;)

I had this same set-up on my C-50 and thought the quick release was very handy, but the brackets made the bags stick out from the side of the bike so much I hardly used them. The Great thing about them is when they are off, you have a fantastic set of bungie nuts already in place :bigthumbsup:  And if the mounts are just a little off, you'll have to beat the brackets into place with a hammer. The Powder Coat is top notch but tends to be toooooo thick for an easy slide into position maneuver. IMHO

Just some thoughts,
Don

I agree. I had the Ghost Brackets on my M50. Easy on/off. Only downside was that you had to mount the bolts from the brackets to the saddlebags. Saddlebag support brackets were not needed.

Correct me if I'm wrong -- but it sounds like if the "bungee nuts" were just a little "off" from the spacing on the brackets, you could probably correct the brackets with a Dremel tool to get 'em to line up right, and spare the hammer?

I had the easy brackets on my warrior and they were great. Having said that, they are gonna force the bags to be out farther than you'd like on a bike already so wide......but since they are removable, you can always take em off when you don't need em
