So much bang for your buck!
If you're looking for space, durability, and great price point these are the saddlebags for you!

Size/Volume:
I'm a chick, so I apologize if this doesn't make sense to the men. Having said that I was able to pack a pair of high heeled peep toes, a pair of knee high boots, a knee length evening dress, and a pair of leggings in just ONE saddlebag, with room to spare. I had enough space in both the saddle bags to pack for a 3 day weekend, where one of those evenings required me to be dressed up. I had more than enough space in these saddlebags to pack for a week away and go shopping.

Durability:
I encountered torrential downpour, hail and high winds riding to and from my destination points. The saddlebags were stable on the back, the straps over the backseat held them in place and the clips did an amazing job of keeping the bags from flapping in the wind. The bottom of the bag which was over my exhaust did not burn nor did it feel like it would. The rain covers which came with the bags did an AMAZING job of keeping everything in the saddlebags dry.

Size on the bike:
I didn't feel the weight of the bags at all. I evenly distributed the contents amongst both the bags and didn't feel any lag on the bike while riding. It felt like it was a part of the bike.

Ease of Installation:
Once you've adjusted the 3 main straps to the appropriate length the first time, it only takes about a minute to put these on the back of the bike and buckle them in.

Carrying convenience:
The handle straps and attachable shoulder straps make it easy to carry into your destination when off the bike.

I would highly recommend these bags, especially at the price point offered.

Perfect
Was looking for bags that will go over my ninja 650, With the fender eliminated, I wanted to make sure the bags don't cover the tail lights. The tapered shape of these bags works very well for these, and they don't reach the rear wheel either, just perfect !! There is plenty of room for weekend ride, but wouldn't try them ((or any other soft saddlebags for that matter) for heavy stuff . Comes with side pads and waterproof covers too, that work very well.

Versatile bags
Installation
Quite easy to install and very firm Velcra straps. If I'm with a passenger, it does however overlap my rear blinkers to some extent, so drivers may not see them if sleepy (see photo). My passenger says it's OK for her to sit together with the bags, since F4i is not a Gold Wing anyway :)

Use
Don't lose the straps used for lashing the bag to the bike. If alone, a properly fixed bag won't be blown away at 120 km/h (the max I rode at with them). If with passenger, they are not going to be blown away because of the passenger's butt :)
Fix the rain covers very firmly, as they are easily blown away at 150 km/h, so it was with one of mines.

Capacity
The capacity is quite OK, I put there my Hookah and many other helpful things.

Fail
I used these rarely to carry my shoes when I knew I was going to be walking a lot. I put a gallon of milk in side and the seam ripped half way down on the way home. Had to use a bungie cord to keep it from failing. Too expensive for shoddy quality.

Great product for the money
I bought these for my 2009 GXSR 750, and have used them once for an overnight trip. There was plenty of room for what I needed to bring (pants, shirt ,bath items) and even some room to spare.
The Pros:
- Fit and finish seem good....
- These came with rain covers that seem to fit fine.
- Plenty of room for stuff
- Easy to install on the bike
- It has connectors for the tail bag, which Ill add at some point

The Cons -
- The covers that protect the bodywork from the bags kind of cover my rear blinkers....I have to fold the cover in and tuck it under...even then it kind of covers them. There is no way to mount the bags further foward to get them away from the directionals.
- the straps that go over the rear seat for mounting dont have adjustable width. (the rear seat is barely big enough to fit the straps, so you cant move them foward).
- They bounce around a bit because there is no way to secure the bottom part of the bags. This isnt that big of a deal.

Overall I love these things and think they are really good for the money!!

Good Value, lots of Space
Okay, I believe the set-up on these bags was intended for the wide tail of a full on Supersports motorcycle like a ZX6R or GSXR, etc. I have an FZ6R with the grab handles around the tail. So, it doesn't work with the grab handles in place, take those off (easy). Then the tail is now narrow, and velcro straps connecting bags are too long, but can be adjusted beyond design, happy to say the bags are now in place as intended and used frame for front tie downs, just use your noodle and you will figure it out, love the bags, they look great, and cheap (compared to hard cases).

Nice looking bags, seem tough enough.
I ride a 2009 CBR1000RR with a smaller tail section so I had to tighten the velcro straps down pretty far to get the bags to sit vertical but after those quick adjustments they gave me no problems on the one trip I've had them on. The bags hold more than enough to get me through a weekend with plenty of room to spare and lots of room in the outside pockets for what ever you take with you. The rubberized foam on the inside of the bags is a nice touch for all of you who are picky about your paint like I am. As I mentioned I've only used them once so far but they seem like they will be tough enough to last. Only thing I can foresee being a problem for me is the rubberized foam is a separate piece of material that is only stitched on at the handles so it flaps around a good bit. Can easily be trimmed to fit the tail section of your bike though. Overall good product.

Great Saddlebags
I wanted a particular look for my old BSA - these were bought based on photos on Revzilla's website - got to me in Australia in no time, fitted them and they were just as I imagined - they look great! I was worried they would be difficult to fit given the 1956 BSA didn't have such panniers in mind but they were easy and have plenty of options (clips,straps, velcrose etc.) in this area. I was worried the big chain I wanted to carry might mis-shape them but nuh - no problems - they stay symetrical despite the load and really , I could not be happier with them [ thanks!

CL-950 and VFR 800
I bought these bags to be used with my VFR 800 and they fit perfectly. I hook the front straps to the passenger foot peg arms, and the back straps are hooked together underneath the tail light. The heat shield works well but looks a little goofy. I might be able to get away without using the shield but did not want to chance it. As far as capacity is concerned, these bags are large. I fit enough stuff for myself and my friend in both bags for a one-nighter. They look decent on the bike. I like the fact the they have side pockets which are convenient for things you need to stow away but can get to in a hurry like phones, sunglasses, water bottle, etc ... This is an advantage over the hard cases. Obviously, the cost is a huge advantage over the hard cases. If you're on the fence, do it.

Does this set come with Rain Fly/Covers?
A shopper on Feb 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, according to the Nelson Rigg website, the CL-95 does come with a 100% waterproof rainstorm cover.
Does this product inhibit the ability to take a passenger?
Michael H on Aug 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I used my saddlebags on a Suzuki V-Strom. The bags have large straps that go over your seat from side to side. My wife has ridden on the back with the bags in place and she said she didn't feel a thing. You can on some bikes put the straps under the seat but on my V-Strom the front strap is right in line with the latch so over the seat they go. Hope this helps!
Do the bags lock?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They don't lock, and there's no obvious convenient way to secure the zippers with a bike cable or something.

Will these fit on a Honda CB500X ?

Want to buy this as a present for a 2007 kawi ninja 650r. Wanted to know if it will fit. The description just says it fits swept exhaust, but does it fit a normal one too? If anyone knows that'd be great.
