Anyone know where I can pick up inexpensive luggage?

I'd like to get locking waterproof saddlebags and a forkbag, preferably locking. I looked on eBay and, from what I saw, didn't see much. If it's going to be a couple hundred for saddle bags, I'd at least like to get a little pouch for the back of the passenger backrest and a forkbag. Does anyone know where I can get something that fits that's relatively inexpensive?

I got my locking bags and trunk from Viking Bags. They fit our bike nicely and are well made. My bike and install are featured on their vn750 Page for the slanted bag. Check my recent profile pages for pix.

Viking Bags

I've got the viking bags too and they look great. Pain to get on and they just fit , butting up against the blinkers but work great. They aren't huge mind you. Well made though.

Viking Bags and LeatherUp.com are two places to start if you are looking for new. There are several threads discussing specific bags, pricing, fit, etc if you go to the search option.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

I came across a pair of hard saddle bags on eBay. These are $65 - pretty good deal...? They need to be mounted and wired to the brakes/turn signals. Has anyone installed these and/or know how to?

I was actually gonna buy those, then I bought too much vintage stuff, lol....those are Mutazus basically....wiring is easy if you can splice and solder....the mounts are pretty much universal and aint the best....once mounted, remove the bags and get the mounting pueces welded together as a unit....

I dint think those lights are DOT approved either, if ya care....if ya do, you can use em as aux lights, and relocate the stock ones.
