Hard Saddlebags; Cavalry vs RS Series

Has anyone out there have any experiences with either RS Series Top Load Hard Saddle Bags with LED tail lights vs. the Cavalry line ???

My bike came with the Yamaha Stock saddlebags but there to small. Been looking for something larger and that looks good on the bike. Also, quality of the bags is also important.

Any and all feedback will be gratefull.

Happy Trails and Ride Safe

Though I know ride a Road Star, I did buy Cavalry hard bags for my 1100 V-Star and they were two small. I installed them on my Wife's 800 Vulcan Classic and the look and fit well on that bike. If you are looking for bags that mirror in size, Harley hard bags, you might look at Reckless. I believe that Reckless offers bags that are close to the Harley bag size. I saw them at Bike Week and the product looked good.
I actually made a cardboard template of the outline of a friend's Harley bags. This allows me to have good visual and measurements available.

Dont know what you are looking for in size but I have Tsukayu strong hard bags. I dont think you can beat the quality and they make a Jumbo strong bag also. They are a little pricey but are some of the best you can buy. You can get them with leds made into the bags however I would not do that again, there is a company that makes a light very similar to the led tail lights of the Road Star, I would use those if I did it again.
