Swingarm Bag?

Anyone have a recommendation for something like a swingarm bag? Or a small bag that hangs off the frame somewhere?

Iím not comfortable mounting a bag on the left side, next to the belt and rear pulley - not much clearance between the frame and the belt, etc. - but the right side has the pipes.

"Willie & Max" make one - never tried it, but they are cheap and are usually a universal fit. Others (like "Saddleman") probably make them, too. Some make brackets/hangers, to keep them from interfering with the wheels, frame, belt, etc. There was a gal in my wife's group, with a Sportster 48, had one on hers from H.D., that she liked.

I've been riding with the Willie & Max swingarm bag for over 6,000 miles without issues. I chose it mainly because matched my W&M solo seat and tank bib.

I got the Willie and Max bag - will post pics after it's installed, but that may be a while. Thanks for the recommendation!
