Are these "ladies" saddle bags?

So on a scale of "cheap and a little ugly" to "wouldn't be caught dead" where do these saddle bags rate for my ride.

I feel like they are a bit feminine but I'm still new to world of riding ha

Pro's are they are free, con's are im male and more of a "I wonder if a 40mm ammo can could be easily adapted" type man

I would run them, but then I'm nuttier than a squirrel turd. I also am one to put function over form. My first saddle bags were nothing more than two kid's backpacks tied together under the seat.

That's great - my real burning question though: was either bag themed? Something like "Dora the explorer" or Pokemon. :-)

2002 vn750
AGM battery, Shinko 230 tires oversized front
Ear shaved - k&n pods, drilled clutch basket
MCCT
40/138 jetting

If I can split a case and make it work - you can too!

you can't beat free!

but, there was also a member on here, years ago, that used a pair of 50 cal. ammo cans on his VN750. cool as all hell, and held a hell of a lot of sheet in each!

and hell, if they ain't pink, they ain't girly!

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!
