looking to replace the stock studded leather bags on my 05 R* with a larger set of hard bags like those on the midnight roadie. any source info would be helpful. Color is irrelevant since im repainting the bike and will repaint the bags as well

Viking has some pretty decent hard bags for a good price.

Im using had bags as the have tons of space inside of them. I have found Yamaha bags even the deluxe ones just simply suck when it comes to storage inside. they look huge from the outside then you open them...

Try Tsukayu (the correct spelling is on my signature) they have a ton of different hard bags. They might be pricy but Ive had them on my bike since last year and very happy!

Hard Bags

I agree with Tsukayu bags. I went with the Strong series from them & it follows the Roadstar lines it was made for them. Personally, I didn't care for the squared bags they have but technically that would look more classic. Yes they are $500 but they are very high quality fiberglass (not crap plastic like cheaper ones) and come w/ really nice chrome mounting hardware. I'm super happy with them. Install was not fun. Ha, you get one shot to mark & drill those holes & hope they are even.
