Make a cardboard template starting large of a certain brand/style of bag going by vision/pics and sizes described. Viking and Saddleman are the most recognized brands.




06' 1100 Spirit (sold 6/23/13)
71' CL 100 "Lil' Sista"
99' Valkyrie "Adele"
05' 1600 Vulcan "Ludabelle"

Ride Bell by "Yoman"

To everything there are exceptions.

I had Willie and Max compact slants on my "02 VLX. They looked good and I didn't have to relocate turn signals.https://www.hondashadow.net/forum/me...a-trip-006.jpg

I'm sure it depends on what you're looking for (size, usage, style, budget, etc...).

I have a set of these on my 750 ACE:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They suite my needs and I've been very happy with the purchase. They were affordable, they offer a pretty decent amount of storage, they look great (imo), and so far (a little over 6 months) they are holding up great to daily use/weather/sitting out in the sun/etc...

I'm not super familiar with your bike model, but I'll attach some pics of how the bags look on my 750.

Never attribute to villainy that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Hey Vincent_V, did you use any type of support frame under those or just the bags as they come?
