I am torn whether to get them. I do go through a bit of traffic... in between cars... and on red lights I move forward, never split lanes.... but it sucks when I have to carry something. I don't like the look of backrests or sissy bars.

I put Harley saddlebags on my friends bike, with his help, and they don't look to bad. They would look better if we had fabbed a longer rear fender on there, but he will do that later. We are going to put a Harley bat wing fairing on there as soon as it comes in.

Viking bags look good and go for a great price. They have a quick detach as well. Just got mine in so I'll post when installed

Viking bags with stock brackets. I ordered the quick disconnect brackets they sell separately but I didn't like how far they put the bag away from the bike. I also wasn't a fan of a big block being visible. They are hard mounted now but I think it looks cleaner. Anyway, just my opinion.

Nice job on the mounts you made. Very clean install. I like it.:Thumbsup:

They are actually the mounts that come with the bags. Viking Bags are sold with them so you don't have to buy anything additional. They come with a couple different sized spacers too so you can get the right spacing and angle. Thanks though.
