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. September 8, 2014
Good but not exactly meant for my application I have this product for my 2013 iron 883. I'm on a budget and this seemed like the best bang for the buck and it definitely was. These bags are a little big for bike but they still fit. Easy to handle and disassemble. Seem sturdy, although the manufacturer recommends no more than 10 lbs. in a bag. These bags will definitely work better for a sport bike, for which they are designed, and larger cruisers. June 4, 2014
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.

Great small saddlebags for sportbike Bought these to use for occasional local shopping trips when I need more space than is available in my topcase. They went together quite well, hold their shape beautifully and attached to the bike quite easily using the straps. Protection of items inside is less than perfect -- they are soft bags after all -- but the stiffeners that hold the bags' shape do a decent job of protecting things well enough. Positioning things so that they right bag wouldn't touch my higher-than-normal exhaust was a bit tricky, but with a bit of work (and one small bit of gaffer's tape) I managed to get it to work perfectly. I'll be in search of a more perfect permanent solution involving velcro to hold the neoprene rubber piece back from the hot exhaust, or maybe just trim off the excess so it can't come into contact.

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. October 8, 2012
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. **For an idea of size on the bike, photo of the saddlebags on my F4i in the photo on the left** September 23, 2012
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!! August 20, 2012

Fred K: 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! Sep 2, 2013

Todd S: It all depends on how far rearward you mount your saddlebags. But keep in mind further towards the rear may cover your turn signals depending on your bike. They are great bags though, I packed more than enough in them for around a 10 day trip. The water proof covers performed well too. 09 can am spyder rs Aug 26, 2013

Linda C: Hi there, yes it does. There really isn't a way for the passenger to sit on the seat or wrap their legs around the back fairings. The saddlebags sit right above the back pegs and the velcro straps go across the top of the rear seat. Hope that helpa.
