My dealer was told by the distributer that the bags don't meet federal standards because of a side reflector. They are trying to make a fix from what I understand. Supposedly, the bags are in a warehouse but they can't ship them without the reflector fix.
That dog don't hunt.
I just checked a few of the bikes in the garage.
TS185 reflectors on frame.
SV650S reflectors blocked by Givi bags.
KTM 625 SMC reflectors on frame.
Honda Shadow with NC hardbags, non functional reflectors on bags (Givi V35 has fake non functional reflectors too.)
Buel XB12 reflectors on frame.
Triumph Trophy no reflectors on bags none you can see on the frame.
FZ1 no reflectors on frame that can be seen when Givi bags on. No reflectors on Givi bags.
KLR no reflectors on frame that can be seen when Givi bags on. No reflectors on Givi bags.
MP3 250 reflectors every where.
Versys reflectors on frame removed for SWMoteck rack install.
I doubt there is some DOT hols up. Stick on reflectors would be a simple cheap add on to the bags.
