another Viking Bags question, apologies in advance

did the search thing, didn't see an answer yeah or nay.

I keep reading that some of the Viking Bags products require you to relocate your turn signals. Does anyone know of any of their bags, at least Medium in size, that would NOT require to relocate the turn signals? I'd prefer to not do any dremel-requiring modwork on the bike. Thanks!

I did not have to relocate my turn signals for these bags. It's close but it works and the bags looks great!

Hmm, yeah Goofyfoot2001, those look nice. Any approximate estimate of how many six-packs you can put in one? (discarding weight, trying to picture the size/capacity in my head) Thanks!

Large, small or medium are subjective sizes. What one person describes as large is small or inadequate for another. Any size can be made to fit and relocating turn signals does not always require the use of a dremel tool.

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.

well, when you order the saddle bags, they are going to ask you what "size" bags you want - small, medium, or large. maybe even extra large. so you have to know what "size" you need/want, so you can tell them what to send you!

I too, measure my saddle bags, by the # of beers they can fit!

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

How many 12 oz or 16 oz beers will the medium size Viking Bag hold ? (I recently bought some).
