I ordered saddlebags

I just ordered these https://www.leatherup.com/p/Motorcyc...ags/49971.html

Does anyone know if I will need supports or anything for them?

I don't have the exact ones but I do have bags similiar in size and I don't use supports. No problems. These bags are nice looking.

Nice looking bags,,,,, but they don't have water proof lids. May want to put you some small holes in the bottom for water drainage.

Those are the exact same bags that I own. They fit perfectly and have never been an issue. Do be careful with the inside cover - the snaps need you to snap and unsnap them with care.

Thanks guys. I should get them in a few days and will let y'all know what I think. DACataldo, you didn't have to move or adjust anything? Are your lights in the stock location?

Didn't move a thing. Turn signals never touched. Let me know how it works out or you have more questions. Enjoy!

I too have the same size bags ( mine are the black and grey ones ) and have had no issues running them without supports or without moving the turn signals. Never had a problem with water either.

I think one of your pictures was the model for me buying them, too.

Chris, did you get the bags? Just checking to see if you had any thoughts on them and any pics of them on the bike.

Sorry, I got them the 5th, but wanted to maybe put them through some use before doing a write up. Plus, I have been riding like crazy.

But so far they are good. they are smaller than I had pictured in my head, but I can fit a frogs rain top, and waterproof pants. Plus I keep a few things in the other side.

They fit on great, And seem to be sturdy. Everyone that sees them (including some Harley guys) says they look perfect for the bike.Click image for larger version
