Saddlebags and exhaust

I would like to put larger and lockable bags on my 2008 V2K. I'm considering the mustang bags and matching trunk. I currently have V&H powershots and I don't thin bigger bags will fit. Any recommendations for an exhaust that will work with these bags?

Scootah_Bub...I'm considering Tuskayu Jumbo Strong bags for my 2K, but will not "pull the trigger" until after the first of the year. I have stock exhaust but am leaning towards a Cobra Power Pro 2-into-1 exhaust and feel pretty sure the Tsukayus will fit nicely. I'll be interested to follow your progress and see what you decide...

You can buy extended bags say if you like the extended Harley bags. Just make sure you get the fiberglass bags which can be cut and modified to your liking. Not the cheapest solution but it should work. I am looking at doing this soon with my 06 2K. The Tsukayu bags just look to short for me.

I've got Power Shots and big Corbin jumbos on mine, and there's plenty of clearance.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.
