nomad bags on a classic

I may have a line on getting some nomad bags and guards. My classic has the Cobra long pipes. Will the Nomad bags fit with this setup??

No, The top pipe will be in the way of the brackets for the bags. If you want you can use just the bags and install them on classic brackets like any other bag. But the Nomad bags will sit higher then if they where on a Nomad. I think it will look funny on the left side with the bag so high up. You could use Nomad pipes too and get the hole package so to say.

07, Nomad, Fairing, 4 speakers, AM/FM USB/GPS, Cell holder/charger, Throttle lock, 13" Handlebars/Grips, Head Light Modulator, 1 off seat w/backrest, V and H pipes, Intake K and N 9" filters, Cobra FI Processor, Side rails on bags, leather covers w/pockets on rear bag guards. Sometimes have Rear trunk on 1 off rack or bag in place of rear seat, Foot pegs, hard 1 off lowers on engine guard, Wolo horn, fork lowers. Black with some chrome.

I tried this on mine. Bought the pipes and the bracket, but found out you needed 2 more brackets that mount to the rear pegs and 2 more that attach to the fender. Lots of money just to mount hard bags. Went back to stock pipes. On a side note, are the stock pipes suppose to be this loud?
