Proper fitting bags at last

I've been looking for saddlebags forever that fit properly without covering the rear pegs and didnt need to do any modification in any way to the bike or the bags. Finally found them and love them.

Showing a few pics incase anyone else is having a bag delimma.

they look nice and sit right on the bike only a few issues I see

first they sit low and will eventually get burnt from the pipes

second the dadgum turn signals lol you can relocate them for free and it will alow you to open the bags easier and allow you to raise the bags a few inches to fix the first issue

Viking bags fit perfect on mine and didn't need to do anything. I use em on my sportster too. They are bigger than what you see in the picture but they aren't huge by any stretch.

Hey Goofy, those are nice looking bags and I noticed that Viking will include the turn signal relocation kit for free with purchase. Do you have a pic of your bike with them on? They don't seem to the same ones as whats in you album.

They do not sit bear the pipe. I wouldnt have allowed that. It would be obvious.

The bags are close but have nonissues opening because its a semi soft top.



No idea what brand. Saw them and liked them.
