I have the saddlemen drifter teardrop bags with the shock cut out. I really like the bags. easy install took me about an hour by myself would have been faster with a second pair of hands. Only down side is that I bought the bags with shock cut out it takes away some of the bag size and the openings sag a bit but have seen some people build a frame to fix that which is on my winter to do list. but not a big deal.

I know you asked specifically about the Desperados but here's a thread with some other Saddlemen bags on 900s. I had a set of Drifter bags for a while. They were too small for me but otherwise I liked them because they looked good and held up fine while I had them.

Ordered saddlebags for my 900

I know you looking for the Desparado. I went with the Drifter Slant, they fit the 900 really well. Though I will be going to Hard bags to match my trunk, Saddleman has a lot of great choices in bags that won't break the bank.

Bosco, can you post a couple of shots with the entire bike? I've been looking at that trunk and I'd love to see what it looks like in a long shot.

I have a set of Viking saddlebags on my 900 custom. They fit the bike great and follow the lines of the bike very well.

That's exactly what I wanted to see. That's a nice fit and size for the 9er. Is that a Wompus Rack?

That's what I had, in Jumbo. I just wish mine had been bigger.
