I've been thinking about purchasing bags I can place on my bike for road trips, but don't want them permanently installed. Has anybody purchased SBs that are easy on and off and don't interfere with the rear wheel/disc brake?

Hey Dick, I'm not sure if to many of the guys are sporting them on the Fury. I thought about it when I first got my bike only because I always had them on other bikes I owned for the convenience of carrying some gear. I quickly dismissed the thought of bags on the fury once I gave a serious thought to what it would do to the appearance of the bike. I personally think it would not look good and would compromise the appearance of the design of the bike. My dilemma was quickly solved one Sunday morning when two of my boys showed up to my house to meet me for a ride on their bikes both sorting a bacbacks. They told me they wear them because they didn't want to take away the look of their bikes. Not that I was ever a back pack guy but I thought about what a great idea it was to keep the appearance and look of the Fury without additional ad ons so now I use the back pack deal if I'm going out for long road trips only otherwise I just learned to dress a little different for the conditions. That's just my opinion but I say if bags on the bike works for you then go for it. I like to see guys d something different. Post up some photos should you decide to go that route. Good luck!

An option would be the Biker's Friend. There is a thread that has some great pics!

Looks like it could be an option for you.

I've been looking into a bag that mounts on the back seat without the need for a sissy bar. This bag has it's own bungy straps inside that easily hook on the bike without worry of scratching the fender. My local Honda dealer bought one just for me to look at and we put it on one of the Fury's he had on his floor. I believe it holds something like 39 cubic inches, if that means anything to you. I wish I had pics, but from what I saw of it, it could easily hold a couple changes of clothes as well several other items a person might need for a weekend away. I will probably go this route as it's also afordable at around $150.00. You may not want something attached to your back seat, but I'd rather go that route as opposed to saddle bags or even a back pack. (No offense, Dave.)

Dick, when the Interstate arrives at your dealership give it a good look-over. It's rear frame section may be the same as the Fury and therefore it's saddlebags and mounting hardware would be adaptable for a handsome price I'm sure :rolleyes:. Whether or not the mounting hardware could disappear as well when the bags are removed remains to be seen.
Sorry Gar but they don't come off, the rear frame section is longer due to the fender, and there is a brace that crosses from 1 bag mount to the other just behind the tire that would show. Actually in the pic you can see part of the bag mount in front of the bag on the bottom from the foot peg back to the mount.

Maybe those braces could be messed with or moved around slightly for a fit onto the Fury... Guess we'll see here shortly... But, you're probably right on that as you have the fact sheet there with you... :(

I hope to get a good look at them next week at the show in Chicago, and they are optional equipment for the Stateline, they mount really far forward with 2 bolts (and the frame work is BIG) about where the rubber bumpers are under the Fury fender, and the brace across the back

I currently use a backpack. When i find a set cheap enough, throwovers and putting a couple holes to tie off onto the back seat strap. I work where i need to take a laptop at times, pluss riding gear and an occasional couple power tools but dont want to not ride my bike because i have to haul some extra stuff. and being able to quickly easily able to take them off so it only very temporarily takes away from the bike

I have an Icon tankbag. When I'm on the sportbike, it's on the tank, when I'm on the Fury, it's a backpack. Best of both worlds and I can ride either bike to school with no problems. :D
