saddle bags.

Hey all. I am looking to add saddle bags to my 750. I am interested in a removable set. Any advise? I would also like to know about the modifications I would half to make. Also looking for a luggage rack. Would also like to know about a tank bag.




Thanks John

I got Willie and Max bags with zip off bags.

I got them at a great price, $35 at a silent auction.
Had to move the rear signals to get them to fit good.

I picked up a couple of sets of Tourmaster bags from a local stealer. Prices weren't too steep and the zip on and off. With 2 sets one slant one square I can have a set for work tools (computer tech) Just zip on and off and I ready for work or play. I already had saddlebag brackets on the bike when I bought it.

I have the Willie and Max on both bikes.
They are synthetic, so they hold up in the weather, and they zip off in a matter of seconds.

You should plan on getting some bag brackets even with the removable type, gives you something to secure the bag to so it won't flop while going down the road and keeps the bags out of the rear wheel...

Ditto on the brackets! I've got some buffalo leather slant bags that I got with a bunch of stuff off a wrecked bike. Bags weren't supported and have some bad fraying of the back where the tires were rubbing them. They're basically trashed. Highway Hawk makes a real nice set of brackets that have helmet lock brackets on them for a good price. I see them on Ebay often. Think I paid around 60 bucks. Very heavy duty and nicely chromed.

I'm a big fan of River Road bags, the ones i got are just fab, though i wished i spotted the removable version before i orderd but cest le vie. They can hold four bottles of water, eight training cones, extra set of gloves, radio, glasses, kick stand can, bungie net and still got room for takeout. =9
