Question Found a Great Deal on Some Bags, what are they?

Anyone recognize the brand? Snagged these for $43 and shipping.

I used to see a lot of bags with two pockets like these, but wasn't finding any last night. I thought maybe these were River Road, but couldn't match theirs up. Guess I can wait until they get here, lol. Some similar to these were $200 and up. Hoping they're zip-off, they're easier to take off right? They don't give a lot of details.

The tag just says Chrome Plated Studs and their measurement of the length must have included the pockets, at 24", and they're supposed to be heavy duty, synthetic leather, Made in Pakistan.

Whaddya think? Any tips for a saddlebag newb? I know I'm going to need some bars and maybe relocate the turn sigs, right?

Quote:
Black Synthetic Leather with Chrome Plated Studs and Chrome Plated Brass Buckles. Each bag measures 11x 23x 7. Heavy-Duty Throw-Over Saddlebags with Original Tags still attached.

nice find!

I wanted side pockets on saddlebags, but never found them myself.

They look good...the only thing that I can think of that might be an issue would be getting access to the rear facing pockets because the relocated turn signals might be in the way.

Synthetic Leather......plastic.

Make sure they don't come close to the pipes and don't rub the shocks.

Metal goods from Pakistan are kinda cheap, so make sure those "chrome plated studs" are chromed on both sides as they will leak rust if not.

But looks good for the price.

Good find. Like was already mentioned, supports to keep away from shocks and. Relocate the signals. Should be good to go.

Yep, these are pretty close, if the measurements were accurate, the ones I bought are a little larger. Should be easy to take care of and water resistant.

Got the bags in the mail and they're immaculate, never used, and also zip-off. Starting to think they may be too large for the bike, but I only tossed them on for a minute and the turn signals are in the way of setting them to the back. Can't get them too large, can you? The height is good and they had about 2" clearance over the mufflers.

No identifying labels, just three tags and a Made in Pakistan label. The tags just say, 'Easy Quick', 'Chrome Plated Brass Buckles', and 'Chrome Plated Studs'. So I have no idea what brand they could be, but still a great buy at $43.

Looks like I'll be needing some bars and signal relocator brackets.

I went with some Viking Bags and have no regrets. I used the throwover and the hard mount to secure. The zip off is a good option to have, but I'd still rig some additional securing from the inside to the bag supports. Something easy enough to remove without tools, maybe wingnuts.

I have some pix of mine in my profile, two albums "Saddlebags (show mounting) and Bike (side pix)". The relocator brackets are a must. I still need to get mine powdercoated, but hate to have them off for the week or so to get them done.

my bags (when they are on) are throw over and zip off.

I have the kawasaki F&S bag hardware on my bike (along with the relocated turn signals from them).

The bags I have are unknown make/origin. They are zip off, and have several velcro loops to secure them to the metal bag supports.

Mine has the leather ties to tie off on the supports. Suppose I could make some holes for bolts, but I hate to start drilling holes in them.
