jimkonst That's kinda funny. The soft bags you just sold me saved my chrome and maybe some skin when I learned about gravel. Again.
And they still look pretty good.

kanuck69 Once I get my bike back up & fixed I'l be sure to get a pic before something else happens. lol I'm in love with the hard bag now. Totally saved my ass when I wrecked. The bike road on them opposed to my leg.

That is a beautiful paint job. I'm still considering a paint job, but I bought my bike ('02) brand new, and have already spent a lot of money on it. It currently has 45,000 miles on it, and I'm having a hard time justifying spending a lot more money on it for a paint job when I don't know how much longer it is going to last, plus the stock paint is in great shape.

VN750Rider/Jerry I don't have a picture at the moment, but I have the Kawasaki Renegade bags, made by Auburn Leather, mounted on the Kawasaki F&S mount/turn signal relocator brackets. Not cheap, I paid about $450 for the whole setup, but it was a new bike, and 8 years and 45,000 miles later, the bags still look new.
Also, when I removed the helmet locks from the side rails, I went ahead and removed the rails, cut off the tabs where the helmet locks went, and used a Dremel to grind everything smooth. I tossed the worthless helmet locks in the trash, and used screws with chrome snap caps to plug up the holes in the saddlebag support brackets where the helmet locks were supposed to be relocated to. I have this thing for detail. Jerry.


Edit: Here's a link to some old and pretty poor quality pictures of my bike, which shows the saddlebags.

Both the Mutazu and Visions brands have great lines of hard saddlebags. I know many members on here have the cheap Mutazu GA Hardbags.
