If you like it do it. You can always change them out later. Your opinion is really the only one that counts.

Looks good. Hard to tell in picture but how close is bag to exhaust? The heat will warp the bag and bubble the paint if too close. I put some true duct tape, the shinny reflected stuff on the bottom of bags before to reflect heat. It worked well and since it's on the bottom no one could see it.

Looks good! I have a friend who added hard bags to his Harley. They look great but they seemed awkward when opening and closing.. Functional yes...good looking yes...easy to operate...I would say not. With that said if you like them..thats all that matters!

09 V Star 950

Be seen and be heard! Bright lights and loud pipes!

Enjoy the ride
