I got these as a gift for graduation, tho I did chose them specifically. They fit my 2006 JD Low Rider very well (the Small size), and they look good. The quality seems to be very good. I like the inserts, they seem to be a handy idea. I can fit a 35mm digital camera bag in one and still have plenty of room, same for a six-pack of drinks. I think they were a very good value for the money, and I look forward to many years of service!

River Road Momentum Slant Saddlebag Mounting Instructions
Measure distance horizontally from the edge of the rear turn signal to where the passenger would be aligned on the seat. Next, measure the distance vertically from the exhaust pipe to approximately two inches below the top of the rear fender.
*Please remember to allow at least one inch clearance between the bottom of the saddlebag and the exhaust pipe. This will prevent the saddlebag from being damaged by touching the exhaust pipe.
Generally, to install throw-over saddlebags to your bike, you would need to remove the passenger seat. You would then ensure that the hook and loop connectors are firmly pressed together and secure bonding the two bags. To ensure additional stability, use the strap at the top of one saddlebag and thread through the double d-ring on the other saddlebag. Place the saddlebags on the top of your bike and adjust to how you want the bags to sit. After this is complete, re-install your passenger seat back on the bike. There are additional straps on the bottom of the saddlebags for added security and stability as well.

About 20 Days delivery time here to NZ, and know customs payable :). Bags are good quality for non leather type that they are and very good value. They are as described Xtra Large and will take bait of mucking around to get them to fit my VTX1300 retro. Website good to deal with and responded to my email queries quickly. I will shop here again.
My second set of RiverRoad bags. I got these for my 2007 Mean Streak. Well-made, and includes all the bells and whistles (liners, non-scratch cushions and rain covers). Great value for the price. The only drawback I see are the plastic rings to use as attachment points to secure the bags to the bike.
I bought these for my Buell XB9SX and the small size was just right my bike.They look great and can swallow a suprising amount of gear. I got the braided ones and am very happy with them. They stay put and I can ride as hard and fast as ever. They do slip foward a little when coming down from wheelies, but this is no problem -- you can push them back easily enough.
Bike is bare without these bags - I like the studs and the quality they seem well made and the bike looks so good like a bagger should - I pack them up cause u don't know when the weather will change so spare clothes are a must, these bags may just be the ticket to good rides in the future, hope they last, my Jumbo Saddlemen came apart after 2 months where they tie together and where they punch a hole above the bags they leave inadequate material to support your stuff, I was to fix but decided on these instead - the material seems thicker and time will tell about durability, so thanks Jafrum!
Honda vtx 1300c perfect fit. Great service.
