I have the Saddlement Drifter Slant Jumbos. I think they are similar in size to the stock bags on the Classic LT. No complaints from my passenger. Mine were throw overs that I hard mounted. I think the rounded top suits the lines of the bike better.

I've got the Saddlemen teardrops in jumbo, and they're not too big for me. I couldn't imagine going with anything smaller. Sorry, no pics. I found the material on the back of the bags to be a bit soft, so I reinforced it with some 1/4" thick plastic cutting board material.

I like the Saddlemen bags a lot, but honestly, if I was going to do it over I'd probably get hard bags.

Oh, and no problems with the wife (my passenger). A little different getting on & off, but she really like having a place to put her purse and keep hair ties & clear glasses.

I also have the saddleman teardrop's in jumbo. They fit the bike perfect and follow the line of the rear fender far better than the stock bags kawi produces. They do not get in the way of anything, other than the wifes legs once in a while while getting on the bike.

I did not use the mounting hardware that the bags came with, instead I used a set of aftermarket soft bag brackets that I had laying around because the were longer and have a 3rd mounting hole ont he bottom for that extra support.
