Motorcycle Luggage 7 Piece Set - $99.99

Anybody try these?

This universal fit, 7 piece set can be fitted out on any motorcycle in a matter of minutes. Luggage pieces are genuine buffalo leather so that they look great and can take the wear and tear from the long rides.

It looks similar to this set with slightly smaller bags. It should work pretty good. It also looks like the cheaper set on ebay is alligator embossed grain leather, and the one in your link is is embossed in a different grain.

IMO, they wont last long. They're a lot of tiny pieces of (probably thin) leather stitched together.

X2 with Hyperbuzzin. The small patched leather pieces are not designed for heavy wear. Should be good for a quick fix or for occasional use. But looks like a good deal for a combo set for the occasional traveler.

I got the 9pc set for 99$ on ebay and they are buffalo skin. They have held up pretty good with occational use. I have used the roll bag on my luggage rack for almost 3 years now and it is still in good condition. A little fading on the zipper. (Plastic zippers BTW) The only down fall is they are soft sided bags and get a bit limp looking when empty. I added some stiff foam to my roll bag so it would hold its shape even when empty. One other thing is there are some things that a biker doesn't really need like the backpack and a couple other smaller bags but all in all it is a great deal. I am looking for some quick release hard bags and will probably be selling mine sometime in the future.

Just picked up a set off ebay for about $70.....A buddy of mine put it on his Honda and they look pretty good....However, you know what they say, you get what you pay for....I'm not going to expect these to hold up for years but they will do the trick for my use....

I got a 3 piece set with a backpack, a tool bag and a small roll bag. Like Hyper said, it is a lot of small pieces of buffalo leather stitched together. I used my backpack for carrying clothes and lunch to work. It has a couple of steel "D" rings sewn into the back top edge about a foot apart, and two more on the front. These work pretty well to make an X lashing over the top and down to the rear seat with 12' of parachute cord, using the helmet locks and rear turn signal light stocks as attachment points.

The first time I tried to use it as a backpack, the lower attachment point on the bag for one of the shoulder straps ripped out. It was only held on by a single row of stitching holding the body of the bag together. One of the nylon straps holding a D ring is pulled off now too, due to the same poor stitching method used on the pack straps.

With these bags you follow the admonition of Buyer Beware, because you only get what you pay for.

I bought the tail bag set awhile back for a steal, looks like the same set pictured.

Well held up for one whole trip before the staps tore loose from the bags, the stitching just sucked, the phrase "you get what you pay for" comes to mind.


Go to Tourmaster, Chase Harper, ETC to buy quality bags that will last.

I paid 75 bucks last spring for the same stuff - a newbie, first purchase I made after buying the bike. I've learned a lot since then, including what not to spend my money on. If I had known then what I know now I would not have bought the set and would have hit Leatherup instead.

I have this same set... didn't even last a season... the saddle bags are very poor construction.. the roll bag, backpack, and tool bags are OK quality and have lasted thus far. I would buy another set of saddle bags... if i could find just the bags...
