Here's my thought, but don't take it personally. The Raider, and the Stryker are so good looking with how all the lines on the bikes flow, I could never cover it up with bags. That's why I went with luggage rack, behind the sissy bar, and throw a Nelson-Rigg T-Bag on when I travel. There are plenty of guys who do baggers, and that's cool too.

Looks Great Redcop, We all gotta do the mods on our bikes that we like best for ourselves. It is cool to get complements and ogles, but it all comes down to what we feel is a good fit(Just like a pair of jeans)!!! Have tons of fun riding friend!!

cool thoughts my man......i do also have the luggage rack, and i also moved my license plate to the left and removed everything below the tail light. when im just riding around town, i remove the windshield and backrest/luggage rack, the only way i would have this stuff is with quick-release.......happy trails............

I would love to go without bags, but I would not have put 36,000 miles on my Raider in just over 2 years either. If I'm going to use it daily I need to be able to do daily stuff and that requires bags.

If you only ride on sunny days, then you're living in the wrong state.

Livin up here in Dreary Erie, PA you gotta take what you can get--30-40-50% chance of rain--gotta ride. Guys at work think I'm nuts but I say--" I didn't spend my hard earned money to let it sit in a garage" get out and ride that thing!!! ;) ;D 8) rain or not. You go fast enough you can dodge most of the drops!!! :D :eek:

I have been on back for those bags for 3 months now...finally came in Saturday and picking up tomorrow. I've been needing those bags forever and have not found anything close to what I would rather have, or I wouldn't have waited like I did! Bike looks great!

thanks man, rode to a fireworks show last night and as usual for oklahoma, it decided to rain when we havent had any rain and none was predicted, anyway we rode about 30 miles in a steady rain and not a drop of water got in these bags........
