Anyone know anything about these bags? Bought my Stryker in Feb but have been riding on and off for the last 20 years. I put a lot of miles on my bikes. The dimensions of the bags are 12 ¾”H x 18 ½”W x 8 ½”D . From my measurements I think they will fit length wise but I'm a little dicey about the height. Would be using Edge/Ghost Brackets to mount them. Have backrest installed and would be carrying passenger on weekend trips. Saw the post with the Saddleman bags - look nice! but am looking for a little more size and - preferably a more rigid back. Any & all suggestions are welcome. Also - almost forgot how hard is it to relocate the rear turn signals? Have been looking on forum but not found much. TIA!

Never heard of them, but if you check the specs on my saddlemen bags, the key dimension is how tall are they? My saddlemen are 9.5" tall and I have about a 3/4-1" clearance off the pipe. Any closer and you might be smelling your bags, not exhaust! You could go higher when mounting them, but I went low to keep the fender line visible.

The turn signal would be pretty easy, just extend the wires to where ever. Heck, you could put some quick disconnects on and install a nice amber LED on the hard bags themselves.

Thanks for the info - I made a paper template this weekend from measurements from a pic they had online and they would just fit if I raised them up above the fender line. That being said - I agree with you - keeping them at or below the fender line looks the best. How low below the fender line do you have them?

Thanks again.

I answered your email, but figured I'd put the info here too. My bags ride maybe 1" below the fender line and about 3/4" above the pipe. Those bags will be a REALLY tight fit. Is your lady gonna be okay with her leg resting on the bags? That might be the prime decider if you know what I mean.
