I'm looking for them for the main two purposes of Sturgis and KC. Wouldn't really be using them for any type of city cruising, seeing how when I head to school I'll just throw my backpack on. Now I don't have a Sissy bar or luggage rack, in the process of looking into the mini sissy right now. But I really don't want to drop the 800 bones HD wants. Plus I plan on going with a wider tire at some point and the saddle bag mounts will have to come out. Any idea's or suggestions would be great! Thanks.

Better Bags . . .

I responded earlier to the Bagger thread but neglected to provide photos. I love my Boss Bags. They're made of leather reinforced so as not to sag, go on/off in SECONDS and leave virtually no traces. They mount on a pin and the rear shock mounts. About $800...but uinlike the HD bags, they're worth it.

Photos show the bike with/without the bags mounted.

I agree that these are excellent, albeit pricey bags. I had them on my FXDX and loved them. Unfortunately, they don't appear to be making them for the V-Rod anymore.

I have the Cortech Sport Tail Bag like Elizabeth (see my avatar) and will probably go with the matching saddlebags on the D. I may try their other Tailbag/Saddlebag combo (which holds more stuff) on the AW.
