They were exactly what we hoped. Have a 2012 Harley Fat Bob and they fit perfectly!

The bags are great quality, look great, seem very solid, however they are no long so please be careful. That is the only reason for my 3 star rating otherwise it would have been a 5 star rating. The rest of the dimensions appear accurate. The bag I received is also slightly different but I actually like this one better.
I just got these bags and installed them over the weekend. There are some things that I will pass on that I noticed that may be a help.
- The throw over leather is a lot thicker than what I took off, so I had to get a longer bolt and use a spacer to bolt the seat back down.
- The plastic buckles that hold the cover of the bags are a lot smaller than on the bags I took off. Thus it is not as easy to clip them as it is with bigger ones. I suppose I will get used to it as time goes on, I hope the strength is not compromised
- I am not a fan of the extra flap that goes across the bag under the cover, I will probably cut it off with an exacto knife.
Other than those adjustments, they look nice on the bike and I look forward to getting a lot of use out of them!
Just put these on today and they look sweet. Put them on my 01 Honda Sabre and they sit perfectly. Make the back end look a little sleeker and are just the perfect height to miss the pipes by 2 inches. Worth every penny spent on em!
"Best bags on the market for the money!!!!!"
"NICE BAGS FOR THE $. SHIPPING WAS REALLY FAST. XTREMILY SATISFIED"
Very good quality. I like the extra flap under the cover that will help keep the rain out. I like how you can unzip the bag and take it off the bag, but if you want to leave it on it comes with a lock. Also the clips make it a lot faster to get into your bag when you want to. They also lock which is a nice feature. The only worry is the plastic clip breaking down the road. The delivery is really fast, only a week to get here. I checked around and I couldn’t beat the price even with the exchange. Ill be shopping here a lot more.
Love this site, placed order on a Wed. and had product on Sat. of same week. They fit like a glove. Have had several friends, see bags , now going to site to order theirs. will be buying other items soon.
bags are very nice hard sided with heat resistant fabric on the bottom. Leather like material is actually leather like some pvc bags I've purchased before from other places are hard these are very soft and plyable. Size is great maximizes the potential for saddlebags on my 2012 750 spirit
The were easy to install on my Honda Shadow 2001. They fit great and look great. I don't get a lot of rain here and tend not to ride when it does (it is sunny 90% of the time but when it rains it is torrential.), so I cannot comment on weatherability.
Bags Were Way Better Than I Expected. Wicked Fast shipping. Great Ablility To Track Your Order The Same Day You Purchase It. You Won't Find Better Products For The Price.
Great fit and a great price. Was kind of nervous about buying online but very nice. Didn't have to modify anything had them on in 15 minutes. Great quality at a decent price.
You will not find a better built set of saddle bags than these for the price they cost! HUGE and look great on a Honda Shadow ACE.....and fit perfect. I have owned several bikes, HD's and all, these bags would cost 3 to 4 times as much if sold by Harley Davidson....they are that well constructed and look just as good hanging off the side of my bike. Built in inside pouches is a big plus. Great looking bags indeed.
Bought these saddlebags for my 01 Roadstar bags were shipped fast and were exactly as described. Great looking bags for the money!
Great bags for the price. The day after I got these bags it snowed on them after I rode to work. The snow caused no damage to the bags, the road conditions were a different story.
I wanted more of an OEM look (without the humongous price) for my Suzuki C50 cruiser. These bags are a close match. Very sturdy, tons of room, nice fit and finish.
These are fantastic for the price. When you get up really close and open it up to see the plastic/cardboard-like material inside that holds the shape, you can tell they aren't top of the line. And one of the studs isn't in all the way. But they look great on my 2004 Suzuki VZ800. They are very functional, I'm not afraid of anything falling out of them, and they're easy to take off/put back on at the end of a ride. I am VERY HAPPY with my purchase!
Great bags for the money had to relocate the rear directionals but worth it!
Fit nicely on my 09 vulcan 900 custom.
The bags are great high quality and a perfect size. Thank you very much Jafrum! Just awesome service and fast shipping.
These Saddlebags are constructed using a leather-like PVC material and are available in a plain or a studded version. Each version has a separate listing on our site so be sure the item you wish to purchase is the item pictured in the listing. These are a large sized bag and measure 18.25 x 7.5 x 10.5 inches. They are perfect for large cruisers and work on many medium sized bikes as well, although some customers had to relocate their turn signals. These bags are designed to be used as either a throw over style, or a rigid mounted bag. To mount using the throw over method, simply remove your one piece seat or the passenger half of your two-piece seat and lay the yoke of the bags over the rear fender. Adjust the yoke to ensure that the bags do not touch your exhaust system. There is a layer of heat resistant fabric that has been added to the bottom of the bag which keeps the bag from melting but exhaust clearance is still needed to protect the bag's contents. In the reviews, some customers have indicated that extra holes were needed in the yoke to get the height of the bags perfect, but that adding the holes was easy. We also recommend using a saddlebag support system like saddlebag bracket A, to make sure your bags don't sag or get pulled into the wheel. Once you have reinstalled your seat, you can secure the bags to the supports using these tiedowns. To eliminate the yoke for bolt on mounting, you will need to purchase a rigid style mounting system. The back of these bags are constructed using a rigid plastic offering a variety of mounting options. These SD4068 bags are easily removed for security and convenience. Lifting this hook and loop flap exposes a zipper for easy removal, and these grommeted holes allow the bags to be locked to the yoke as a light theft deterrent. Use caution when using these locks while riding to make sure they aren't touching the paint. The carry handles are on the inside edge of the bag instead in the middle of the lid. This allows the handles to be tucked away out of site, giving the bags a cleaner look, and also makes it possible to carry both bags with one hand. The bags are held closed by these hidden, lockable quick release buckles, and a snap on the front and rear of the lid. Opening the bag exposes a flap that is designed to help keep water and dirt out of your luggage. Inside the bag, there are two low profile perimeter pockets and the semi rigid panels that help the bags keep their shape.
To answer your question about fitting,,,,I cut off the throw over straps right at the bag & hard mounted the bags myself. I knew at time of purchase this was the way I was going to go. However, I did attempt to first try the throw over style but quickly found I had the same issues as you, so I went with my original idea of hard mounting. You might want to consider doing a hard mount, if you still want them to be removiable I would suggest purchasing a quick release hardmount system.
For the Height: Measure from the top of the fender to two inches above you exhaust.
For the length: Measure between the back of the taillights and the back of the driver seat.
This should give you the size of the bags you can order.
They fit my 1983 Virago 920 perfectly. There is plenty of adjustment to play with.
I hope this helps you.
