Thanks guys.

I might add that the trunk and saddlebags are from Mutazu and are not of the greatest quality. Fitment of the bags even with the extra brackets which are for the Roady still required me to add upper brackets for stability (which I manufactured myself).

The wraparound backrest that comes with the trunk is, to say the least, a joke. This is why it's not on the bike in the pic. I have; however, reworked it considerably and once finished, I'll drop some pics.

I would not recommend either of these products. Like the saying goes "you get what you pay for". That said, these items will serve the purpose for the time being.

The lights on the other hand are awesome!

Good to know, I was looking at those bags, but my bike is purple and I don't think gloss black would look right. So I'm looking at a set that are plastic with a look alike leather covering. I think black leather looking bags go good with any color.
