Firstgear Silverstone Saddlebags 4.7 5 3 3
Excellent luggage which served me well on multiple bikes for 7+ years I purchased the entire set of Silverstone luggage, including saddlebags, tank bag and tail bag, and have been very satisfied with their function, form, and finish. I first bought the saddlebags used and, after getting them and being impressed with the fit & finish, I was pleased to find out that Firstgear also offered a matching non-magnetic tank bag attachment base for use on bikes without metal gas tanks such as my 2008 Buell 1125R. I went ahead and purchased the larger tank bag and tail bag to complete the set. The thick dual velcro straps fit perfectly underneath the rear seat on the 1125R (and probably would also on the Buell XB12R Firebolt since it's the same design) where it clicks into the receiver for a very secure fit while still allowing a passenger to sit comfortably without even noticing the velcro straps. I've used the luggage successfully for multiple trips, including twice from WA [to NV through Death Valley] to CA and back to WA on my 1125R. The first such trip in 2008, it was POURING rain on the first day. The rain was coming down so ferociously that the rain covers were problematic as they effectively became water-balloons and retained a large amount of water underneath the saddlebags. However, the contents of the bags remained dry, so they did indeed function for the intended purpose. Other than on that trip, I've never used the rain covers and never needed to as I found the luggage to be quite sufficiently resistant to water intrusion without them. I lived in Western Washington state and put over 63,000 miles on my 1125R in 3 years' time, plenty of which was in the rain with the saddlebags on. Unfortunately, I ruined the saddlebags last year by strapping them down too tightly with different (smaller) bungee cords on my 2010 Yamaha FZ6R, causing the lower inside of the bags to make contact with the rear tire "chicken strips" once the weight of myself as rider and my wife as passenger were piled on, in turn causing the lower saddlebag surface to wear through (doh!). I still use the tank bag and tail bag to this day on my 2005 Yamaha FJR1300A and occasionally the tank bag alone on my FZ6R. However, they're such an excellent set together that I'm actually planning to re-purchase a set of the saddlebags for use again on my 1125R which help make it a very nice solo Sport-Touring machine, as can be seen in the pictures attached to this review.

Expandable Bags are veratile I like the option to open the bags up to hold more or close them when not needed. Waterproof covers are another big item. Easy on an off. October 20, 2014
Firstgear Silverstone Saddlebags I love the look of these bags. They look great and go well with our motorcycle. The one thing that I do not like about the bags is how they sit on the seat of the motorcycle. The seat is wide and so the velcro straps are at the maximum length that they can be. The bags lean inward and under the seat. They only come with two bungees and it is a real trick to find a way to attach them without having them touch the pipes or the back wheel. After about 15 min. and help from another brain, we were able to secure them well enough. I hope that ones they are filled with gear, they will be less of a concern. December 1, 2008

Steve L: No other mounting hardware needed.

Heavy duty velcro straps and bungee cords (included) can be adjusted to fit most any width seat. I've used these on a Suzuki Bandit 1200S and 1250S.

Good bags; I recommend them.

Kaz B: I've not tried it,
But the top Velcro straps extend a lot and the bottom bungee cords can be used in various configurations. I'm sure you could make them work for your sportster.
I will say that I absolutley love these bags, they surve me great on a near daily basis and did great on a 600 mile weekend trip.
