Single saddle bag.

Just installed a new saddle bag. I think it will work well next spring.

It's actually good size for a single. I bet you end up using it a lot... Looks good too!

I think you are right but it looks ok anyway.

I'm doing this same thing with a custom made bag I have. The goal is to use it for daily riding but also set up a set of large bags with the Edge brackets that I can put on fairly quickly for weekend trips if I wanted to take the Pin.

It is a "right" I don't understand what makes it a right. It works better on the left because the shape of it fits around the seat so well on the left. And I've always thought the long angled side should face back.

It's a right hand bag off a dyna my friend just sold.

The angle on the back of the bag, the way you have it mounted, would normally follow the line of the rear shock on the right side. Obviously we don't have dual external shocks on our Vic's.

Ah, I see what you mean. Guess I got lucky the way it tucks up next to the seat. And it doesn't effect the passenger pegs.

Turkeeslapper: The bag looks pretty good like that but isn't it a bit low? Do you ever scrape it in curves?

The High Ball bars look good on it.

Bbob, it was low. I had to raise it up a little bit, and now it is perfect. The high ball and 8-ball are basically the same bikes, besides the front wheel. They are very comfortable.
