Too bad the Trophy is underpowered
It Ain't the Destination, It's the Ride!!!
When I first saw the bags move on my Sprint I did not think it would make any difference, or would be worse. With the bags loaded for a trip it reacts better than solid mounted hard bags I have had before on other bikes. It seems as if the weight is less. That is the seat of the pants feeling.
There are sound engineering principles, not skunkworks black magic at work here. If you use a plumb bob as a tool the perceived plane of centrifugal effect, and true centripetal force coincide. It is why test tubes in a centrifuge neither fall out or spill. It is also why you don't slide off the side of your saddle when leaned into a corner...
