Flags and Mounts

Since I'm going to be riding all day on July the 4th & 5th, I picked up a flag and mount made by these guys: https://thepropad.com/

Seems awfully sturdy, other flags available. When comparing it to the Harley offering, there didn't seem to be a comparison, the HD version being no where near the build quality. I liked that the Pro Pad Inc product was made in Mooresville NC and not Taiwan, for less money along with a replacement flag as a bonus if you order between now and the 6th (which helped me make up my mind.)

Was wondered how many of us here ride with flags, I like to see some pics. My mounts to the tour pak luggage rack. Here's a pick from their website. Seems like they have several mounting solutions and a lot of flag choices.

I have the same set up but ride with two flags, the US Flag and the Christian Flag. I purchased the Road Glide flag that was offered on the forum a while back but until the Christian flag starts to look a little ratty, I did not want to take it off due to priorities.

Enjoy the Ride!

I have the same mount and it's been on for almost 3 years with no issues. I did have to replace the flag it got pretty tattered after 25k miles. Just ordered a new mount for the forum flag.

I have this wrap around bar behind my sissy seat, I'm looking for a flag mount for it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Check out the Pro Pad website, they have a lot of different styles to choose from.

I've got Propad's backrest flag mounts on my bike. Cool thing is I can take them off by simply taking the backrest off whenever I like.

Not a very detailed pic, but, it gives you the idea...

I'd like to get one of those RG.org flags one day. Maybe someone will put together another group buy. I didn't have a mount last time they were up for sale.

Any of you guys think having a flag or flags help get the attention of cagers, maybe increase their awareness of us by noticing he constant motion of the flag?

What size is the mount? This is exactly what I'm interested in.

I have been using Rumbling Pride flags and mount systems for over five years. The flags are great, never tear or wear. They also will make custom flags with no set up fee.
