I'm going to visit the Corbin Manufacturing facility in Hollister, CA tomorrow and was wondering if any of you had any questions regarding their manufacturing processes you would like me to ask while I'm there. I plan to shoot pictures and write up a good piece for y'all.

I have ane-mail to them that hasn't been responded to maybe you could ask or someone can answer the question for me. I have Corbin bags on the Spyder. The hinges, where they attach to the bags, move around. the hardward can't be tightened and ther are large chrome washers between the hinge and hardware. Is that movement a normal/neccessary part of the bags. Because of the angle that the bags open I wonder if it was required in rder for the doors to open and close. If it's not,I'll either shorten the hardware some or add a thicker washer.

I posted full size pictures of the hinge on the side saddle bags I saw at the factory in the Gallery. They appeared to be precision machined pieces, and were tight with no washers. I asked and they are not supposed to be loose. They said to call the service number, and if under warranty (sorry do not know the details of their warranty) they would ship replacements.
