Saddlebags: Anything new?
So I picked up my first cruiser, 09 Custom, and love it. I'd like to commute on it but need baggage for hauling lunch, paperwork, etc.. I have a backpack mounted to my sissybar for now but want bags. From all my research it appears the Vikings, Saddleman, and the Kawi bags are pretty much what people are using, except the hard bags.
Are there any new bags on the market now that are better?
Is it just the mounting kit(s) that are shoddy from Viking or Saddleman?
I could fabricate my own but after mocking something up, welding it, powdercoating it'd be cheaper to go with a good mount kit. Is there one though? I don't want quick disconnect.
