Default Saddlebags. Thoughts?

I just found a pair on CL and was able to get them for a fair price (I think) 300.00 for the bags and mounting brackets. I put them on for a poker run over the weekend.. I am still not sold on if I'll run them often.. But I do like the functionality of them. Does anyone else run saddlebags on a JP?

Got a set on my Vegas and theyre very handy, actually the only time they come off is to make it easier for my tyre man to remove and replace the wheel!

07jp I have those exact same bags on my 09 Orange Jackpot. Wasn't crazy about them at first but they have grown on me. I do think that they fit the lines of the Jackpot nicely and they do come in handy. The nice thing about the quick detachable brackets is when you just want to go out for a ride and don't need to carry any extras you can take them off for that stock look

Yeah I am still up in the air about them.. I do believe they are the best looking option for our bikes, but I love the stock look (the reason i went with the JP) Thank you for the response though!

Hopefully i can get into that mindset.. Love the stock look, but hate having 0 storage for anything above a small beverage (with the small bag i had on my rear seat).

Cant šover up that fat fender o˝ mine, looks so sweet without all the muckity-muck. Will be getting ammo cans for my dual sport. Am considering adding third ride (touring) to the stable with more storage, the JP goes bagless, but I get your wantin' somewhere to put stuff w/ out the hassle of a backpack.

I like mine, but you are right they don't carry much, but ok for most trips
