To all

I'm planning a trip next summer and as you all know the hard bag option is limited for us.

At this point I am looking for some removable throw over bags.

I have the upgraded Harley back seat with a sissy bar.

Can anyone recommend some bags they've had good luck with?

Also, thinking about upgrading the tank from 3.3 to 5 gallons.

I know there are a couple of choices for aftermarket tanks.

Anyone done this and if so what was your experience.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Can't recommend a throw over but since you have the back rest, I would suggest the larger Saddleman bag sitting on passenger seat as you can kinda lay against it with lumbar support and it holds alot of stuff also. If interested I can look and tell you what model it is. I love it

I have a Bikers Friend bag that works really well and it comes with a pad that velcros to the bag with lower back support so you can lean back.

For the tank, most recommend Rick's tank. Good luck!

I would take a serious look at the Cortech bags for a trip. They work perfect for me. They are expandable, and easily remove with handles so they act like a suitcase when removed. I just got back back from a 1500 mile trip and I strap the bags on and put them in the hotel when I get where I'm going. Here is a link to what they look like, http://www.jafrum.com/Shop-By-Brand...e-Cortech-Sport-TriBag-System-Saddlebag-Black. They are intended for sport bikes but work great on a v-rod.
