I installed my recently received Sargent Cycle Storage Pod
I had intended to do install pictures, but it's so straightforward it's not really worth the effort. You pull off the pillion, slide the Pod mount's forward arms under the seat like the pillion, then send a mounting bolt down through the pod, through a rubber bumper, and through the pillion bolt hole. Tighten nut and done.
It's light and very nicely made. As you can see it supplies locking storage, has a lightweight carpet type liner on the inside and, nice touch, two LED's light up the inside when the hatch is in the up position and automatically shut off when its closed.
The brushed aluminum finish (on the plastic pod) perfectly matches the brushed aluminum tank. The backstory on that is that my wife actually ordered it for me in early December for Christmas and it didn't arrive until last week. We had been in comms with Sargent, and they explained that their supplier had been having a very difficult time recreating the brushed aluminum look that the prototypes had, and they had rejected production units as not up to snuff. They were full of apologies, but said they were sourcing different suppliers and would only send out units that met their standards.
Okay, I can get behind that.
Everything certainly looks good to my eye and, as you can see, they included a hat, perhaps as recompense for the wait.
I wanted a small storage area for registration papers, a few visor wipes, sunglasses, etc. This should fill the bill. My only worry is as to how weatherproof it may turn out to be. It has a gasket to help seal it when it closes, but we'll see how it holds up to the first rain encounter.
So far, thumbs up from me.
