Hard bags

Went with a set of LN saddlebags last year, got sick of the leather one's always got stuff wet in the thunderstorms even with waterproofing them, no more leather.
Anyhow the el-cheapo hard bags are plastic and very, very good.
The LED'S are a joke, so dont even bother hooking them up, just cut wire off and put grommet in hole.
These bags may leak just a wee little bit in a terencial rain storm, use thread lock, and sylicone the washers for waterproofing the hold down brackets and there you go, took about 2 hours to install. About $270.00 or so.

No just google it, they are out of California mate, it's an Asian brand but they are quite good. Could not stretch $700.00 for the brand name ones, it's a bit steep isent it?

We at least need a keyword to start the google search. If we put in "saddle bags" we'll be there all day. What are the bags called? What's the name on the box or bag they came in? Thanks...
