I can't deny the practicality of saddlebags anymore. As much as I think they will detract from the look of my Vegas, until I pickup my Cross bike, I need some bags.
Here's my dilemma. Victory is a little too proud of their bags, so that option is pretty much nil for me. I am looking for aftermarket bags at a reasonable price. I've seen some posted on here and have read that they sit at funny angles, need to be modified to sit right, blahblahblah. Is there a reasonably priced set out there that just fits?? I was contemplating quick release brackets, but read here that w/out a full bracket (top to bottom), they kinda jiggle around. I don't like that either. So I guess I'm needing a fixed mounting style.
I've seen at least one person here with the Strong Bags. Does anyone else have these? If so, how do you like them? I think what I'm really looking for is feedback from those who have experience with theirs and other bags. Recommendations, what to look for, what not to look for, and what to stay away from. There are a shit ton of sites out there selling this stuff, but if they have reviews, I don't trust them. Too easy to fabricate bogus reviews to boost your own sales.
Finish doesn't matter. Neither does size. As long as I can get at least one six pack in it, I'm good.
One more bit of criteria if I may; I would really like the top of the bag to match the curve of the rear fender. May sound silly, but it's important to me. An example is attached.
