Default vic bagger bag fillers

has any one actually thought joint between the uppers and lowers not looked right? I'm about to install these on my hardball but I'm nervous to drill into the fender for i don't like the way they line up!i have watched the witchdoctors video and they never show a reverse angle of how it looks. what I'm trying to say is if you are in the saddle of your ride and turn to look at the fillers, do you like to see that raised part on the upper where it is angled ? has anyone tried to bend this flat so they sit flat against each other?

Why not use 3M double stick trim adhesive strips.

Thanks for the response mike ! My problem isn't how to fasten the product more the look of the joint between the upper and lower filler if you have a pick from the seat not the rear of the bike! So I can get a close up of what other installs look like! I don't like the way they flair up forcing me to attach the lower not in a straight body line but offset ! It just looks off! I took a pick but lighting and everything else you really can't tell the problem.

I'll try to get a pic at lunch from the saddle facing back. I think the joint looks like like it belongs there, especially from the rear, with the flow of the bags. If the line was straight it would never meet up EXACTLY and make it even harder to install. I honestly have NEVER looked at the back while on the bike. I don't even know if I could see the joint with the saddle in the line of sight...
I love the fact they are 2 piece so I can take them on and off with the passenger backrest. I don't see any way of improving the design (they must not have either, or they would have done it by now)

The best solution IMO...is for Victory to extend the bags from the factory a bit to fill this space leaving an opening or tapering the top so a backrest can be used...just a thought

Default View of bags

Can anyone tell me if the view from the seat of the bike looking back at the fillers, if the lower fillers sit higher than the upper fillers ? Every pic or video I see only shows the rear view! I need to see if the install almost looks like a hood scoop on a car

sorry I didn't get a pic at lunch, something came up. Yes the upper fits below the lower.
