What do you mean by full R view?

It looks like a side view so R can't mean Rear.
It looks like a VRSCA so R can't mean VRSCR.

I presume that means "right side" view?
You are probably RIGHT. :)

They look good but i was unaware that HD made leather bags for the V Rod...

Are they made for V Rod or for another model??

They're made for the VROD... but as one of the owners of the original variant, I can offer these observations:

  • They shrink, making the snaps no longer match up.
  • The leather is poorly treated requiring lots of maintenance.
  • The badges are not mounted well... the studs have broken off of mine.
  • They don't carry much cargo and are an awkward shape.
  • The velcro closure wears out too soon requiring some user ingenuity to mod a more secure closing system.
  • They don't lock.

But they look good for the first few months! :)

Which is why Val coined the phrase FPOS bags.

Yep. Full Right view. My salesman warned me to use the H-D leather conditioner as soon as I got the bike home, so we'll see what happens...
And I can see that because they have to clear the exhaust, I won't be packing for a week long getaway for 2 anytime soon. That's why I also got the luggage rack!!!

I have a set and I can echo liquidsilver's observations - bought mine s/h with mounting bits missing (sometimes ebayers really give me the shits!). However, thanks to these and a small tour-pack that mounts on my luggage rack, I have been able to prove to my wife of 29 years that it IS possible to take a 7 day ride 2-up WITHOUT a hair dryer and just one change of T-shirts and undies for each day .... but you DO need to pack into plastic bags 'coz they aren't very waterproof either. And they give you a fat ass ...
