Very nice '05. What make are the saddlebags, and are you using bag supports?

Thanks I am not sure, they came with the bike. I know they were purchased from a local Kawasaki Dealer though. And yes, it has the supports.

This is how it looked a year ago


You might think I am crazy at this point, but this is now (paint went bad, and seat got a tear) This is temporary!


I will be painting it black, cutting the seat up and reupholstering, possibly lowering the rear.

Thanks for the compliment. You'll need support brackets. I bought the support brackets at Motions in Marietta, GA at 770-425-4000. The part number on the receipt is K53021-091 ($92). The part number for the bags is 5391 ($123).
They are Saddlemen bags. Listed as "Large Slant Saddlebags" Looks like they call it the "Cruis'n" model in the brochure.

Good luck.

David
