Viking saddlebags

Thinking about buying a set of Viking saddlebags. Never heard of them until I ran across the web site the other day. I was real impressed with the way they were built and they look really good and clean.

Check them out at vikingbags.com and let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Scott

Keyman, please do post the pics! I was thinking about getting these too and would love to see them actually on one of our bikes rather than the generic bike they show them on.

Here's a couple a pics of the Viking bags I installed today. I consider it the rough draft per say. But still looks pretty good to me. I made my rear signal relocation bracket a while ago, not having any idea what kind of bags I would be getting?! I guess I got lucky on that one.

They look quite good! I remember your turn signal relocation thread. They both worked out very well.
I can see myself doing almost the same thing soon.

Where did you re-reposition your helmet locks to?

Any suggestion?

I have the higher sissy bar on mine. I tend to leave my helmet on top of that. I was thinking of repositioning mine on the side of the sissy bar frame at about the point where the helmet's chin strap metal rings would hang.
From a quick look it would seem the helmet was just sitting there but would also be locked onto the sissy bar.
