It's not my bike and if you are happy with it that's all that counts, but with saying that I'm just not feeling it, the bags just don't flow to me and they definitely need to be painted to match the bike. Just my opinion, but like I said if you are happy then that's all that matters.

Yeah probably need to be painted but you gotta do what you like though.

I appreciate the feedback , paint for sure , although I haven't settled on a contrast color yet for the bike , probably black , blended with the dark red from front of the bike to back and as they are removable including the J bracket I'm gonna take my time and get it right.
Comments welcome

How hard is it to take the brackets themselves off?

That's very similar to what I plan to do with mine for going to rally's n stuff. I plan to use the highway hawk saddle bag supports just have trouble tracking down some nice hard bags. I'm thinkin of bringing a set of these in from the USA.

Anyone have any feedback on them.

Would you mind posting the model or links to the bags & mounts? I think they may look fine on my black sabre and be great for temporary uses.

Thanks! AJ
