I got a slightly different model than the ones you displayed and I thought they were crap.  The bags sagged without anything in it and my zipper started coming apart on one of them only after like 3 month.  To its credit though, everything usually stayed dry in the rain.  

Since I have finished school I bought a Cortech tail bag to hold the little things that I need to carry.  I love it so far. Plus the tail bag is a lot easier to take off quickly.

I sure hope they aren't as bad but all other sites for these are over or close to a C note! Thanks for the heads up!   :beers:

I've never been a big fan of the saddle bag look. Instead I decided to buy a tail bag and tank bag.  Nelson rigg products are unbelievably durable and look pretty nice too. the silverstreak tail roll bag I bought works pretty well. and if I need to take it off its quick and easy and has a handle if needed. Looks like a gym bag.

buddies have the silverstreak saddles that match my tail bag, looks pretty nice and aren't too large.

I have had the Cortech sport saddlebags and sport tail bag for a year now and I love them.

  I will only use these when or if ever the better half goes with me so there is a seat in the back, otherwise a overnite bag bungied to the r-seat is great on this bike. I did it on the trip to BOSS and its the way to go!
