No, not those bags.... :) Your saddle and rack bags.
Got this rack bag off craigslist for $60 and the saddlebags came with the bike.
As someone here pointed out , my bike looks like a pack mule with all the bags on it. Just going to use the rack bags for camping, etc..

I went with the cheap Mutazu hard bags. They were under $150 shipped, and I fabbed up my own mounts.

These old Willie & Max saddlebags (see sig pic) were on the bike when I bought it.

They are the absolutely perfect size for fitting nothing but loose items. :D
Notebooks, laptops, or anything else I need for work have to go in the backpack.

But they are tough. No complaints there.

When I tour, I strap a duffel to the sissy bar/rack so I'm not short on room. I'll keep them for now replace them with something bigger when I get around to it.

You can put a decimal point in front of your $60 for my bags. ;)

Found this great nylon soft set of bags (not sure what they are) at a garage sale and knew they would make great saddlebags. Added an aluminum trim bracket to my frame rail that can swing down and act as a support, or just a grab rail when not in use. Modified the bags slightly so they snap on and off at front and back with anchor points (quick snaps like you find on backpacks). Whole process takes 30 seconds to get on and off. Used parts on hand so out of pocket was about 50 cents.

Unless you don't stray far from home, bags are nice to have! Mine are Honda factory bags.
