My name is Michael
McGuire and I’m an American living and teaching English
in Taiwan. I created the Formosa Saddlebag purely out of safety
and allowing myself to do more in my everyday life because my
main mode of transportation is a 125cc scooter. Interest in my
product grew instantly once I started running around town doing
errands, grocery shopping, department store shopping, camping,
you name it, and I’ve done it.
At first, I made them for
my friends and soon many other people where interested in my product.
So, I started a business, received the patent and went about promoting
Formosa Saddlebags encouraging safety amongst scooter owners.
Taiwan has 10 million scooters on an island of 23 million people.
That’s a lot of scooters!
Formosa Saddlebags was created
to provide more storage for light and heavy motorcycles for the
scooter industry. Light motorcycles are “scooters”
50cc’s and below. Heavy motorcycles are “scooters”
90cc’s and above.
Formosa Saddlebags creates saddlebags exclusively for the “scooter”
rider. The saddlebags are integrated with a seat cover, “ALL
– In – One” product. This unique product provides
3 new storage areas on the scooter.
Formosa Saddlebags are made of the highest quality materials and
assembled in Taiwan.
The saddle cover is made of a “Water-Resistant” nylon,
neoprene material that allows the saddlebag to universally cover
a variety of seats in the scooter industry. The saddlebags are
made of a “Water-Proof – Non-Scratch Nylon”.
The left saddlebag was created for larger objects. The right saddlebag
is slightly smaller to compensate for the exhaust pipe. Once the
seat cover is attached to the seat the Formosa Saddlebag has created
a new and unique third storage area underneath the seat. Formosa
Saddlebags provides a scooter owner more protection from the elements.
The saddlebag encourages safety and permits the owner an added
feeling of freedom in their everyday lives. Formosa Saddlebags
promotes safety and the pure enjoyment of riding.
Formosa Saddlebags come in three different colors: Black
Red and Blue.
The island of Taiwan is historically known as “Formosa”,
the name given by Portuguese sailors due to the beauty of its
