Saddlemen Saddlebag

Hey there,

I did my research with saddlebag and actually bought at first Viking Saddlebags and got hard case ones but they arrived warped and scratched. Their customer service sucks. After a week of submitting refund request they sent me a label and got full refund 2 weeks later. Also, you have to measure and drill to mount them. #nothanks

I was in need of saddlebags so I bought Saddlemen's Express Cruis'n Slant Face Pouch Saddlebags. For these universal over-the-fender yoke saddlebags, I had to purchase Honda saddlebag stays (Part # 08L71-K87-A00).

Here are some pictures:

Looks nice, but looks like it hangs a bit low. Does it tough the exhaust or chain?


Too bad about the vikings coming in warped/damaged, I like my Vikings. Drilling in the mounts really wasn't too bad, took me a half hour to get both sides drilled and mounted.
How much did you spend total for these plus the honda stays?

It doesn't touch the exhaust ... about 1 inch above it.
The saddlebags I bought them in Amazon for $181

And the stays:
$115
