I do apologize if there is already a thread about this - I did not find it, if there is.

Can someone recommend saddlebags that are roomy and will fit my 1985 Honda Shadow VT1100

Thank you!

Look at all the usual suspects: Leatherup, Jafrum, etc. Print out and trim life sized profiles to check for fit. If you travel, get removable bags.

Mine are large Saddleman drifters. I've been on a couple of weekend trips without issue. Capable of holding everything you need. Been caught in a few down pours as well with everything staying dry.

Gentlemen,

Thank you for your replies.

It does not matter to me - hard or soft.

And I am not that familiar with bikes to know if the general design of an '85 Shadow is similar to the newer ones.

I also wonder which is better - the true saddlebag that rests under the passenger seat, or one that attaches to the side of the bike.
