New Crusin Delux Saddlebag install

I just finished installing my new saddlebags and tail bag. The saddlebags are Saddleman Crusin Delux and I hard mounted them to the F/S saddlebag supports. The tail bag is a Saddleman BR3400EX.

I think that look fantastic... if I do say so myself.


I hope that this help someone in the future.

Yes, a good looking install.

This begs the question--now that you're set up for touring, where are you going?....

I am just riding to work and back at the moment. I hope to do a lot more riding this summer. As for the seat, I can only do the 30 min ride to work. More than that and I need to wake up the old butt. The next mod WILL be a new seat, but I am looking for a mustang regal so I have to wait for one to become available.

I think it all looks good.

Were the saddlebags difficult to mount?
What type of tail bag is that?

Saddlebags were $183.50, and Saddleman BR3400EX tail bag was $145.95, both from e-bay.

The mounting was not too difficult. 2 - 1/2" conduit clamps for the bottom and mounting hardware from the saddlebag supports. I did add a couple of fender washers for support.

I also use a template for drilling the holes as described in a post I found here. Total time was 2.5 hours.
