Well I wound up getting Saddlemen Highwayman Slant bags, jumbo sized. They look good. I used Cobra brackets. I've since taken the bags off though. I used grade 10.9, partial threaded, and the bags are mounted pretty solidly but I don't like the whole setup. With the back rest installed, the bag mounts, and the bags themselves and the bike bouncing around that's a decent amount of shear strain on only 2 bolts per bag. I was going to try welding an arm from the bag supports to maybe the rear footpegs but I'm just not liking the whole setup. I figure it's another thing to worry about while riding. I have a Kuryakyn sissy bag coming. Gonna strap that bast*d to the back rest and under the pillion and should be good to go.
