Tour Master Saddle Bags

Greetings,
Does anyone have a set of TourMaster Crusier 3 slant saddle bags on their motorcycle? I am thinking of getting a set of these, XL size. Are they too big? All comments welcome.

I've got a set of TourMaster slants and T-bag on my '87. I'm not sure if they are the 3 series, but I will send pics and dimensions in a bit. ~ Uncle Dave

My Tourmaster slant bags measure 15" x 10" x 6".

I believe the X-Large Cruiser III's measure 18.5" x 17.2" x 14.2", and the Large Cruiser III's measure 18" x 10.2" x 7.9".

I use them as throw-overs with no saddle brackets. They just lay on top of the shocks.

Since i installed aftermarket turn signals, in the original mounting holes, I did not have to use any relocation brackets.

I am including pics for placement reference for the size I chose.

XL Nylon Cruiser 3 slant bags I am looking at measure:
18.5 inch long, relocating the turn signal is required.
11.5 inches high, plenty of room above the tailpipe
8 inches deep, which is really the measurement from the outside edge to the inside edge along the seat. I had a set of the mediums but felt they were too small.

They look very nice on your ride. I hope I am not making a mistake going with the nylon version.

I'm no expert, but I think those dimensions (with relocation kit) should be fine. You are right, too...plenty of headroom above the pipes with that height. Should look good at that size, too. Cheers.

I'm in the market for saddle bags but don't want to do a relocation of signals. Any ideas?
