Well there has been a few comments on saddlebags, but whatever...I need to pack stuff on my journeys and I carry a backpack for a living, not when I don't have too, so I put bags on mine and use a variety of front fork raps to carry extra...This is photo with my new bags on the solo seat, (I just remounted on the "bitch" seat for the next ride"...I'm a realist in the fact that ya it's going to affect the paint to some extent, but what the fuck, I'm riding...You can also see my jacket as a roll on the forks...All carry well and easy to remove.
Cheers
JS

Sorry for the delay in a reply, I used the seat mount bolts to hold the bags and tied off to the turn signals...Mounted high enough that I have no problem with wheel or rotor rub...Also bought a fairly stiff saddlebag which helps with the rigidity.
Not sure what you mean about the "chrome fender guard"

I like it. Your picture was exactly what I was looking for. I just want to be able to use saddlebags from time to time when I might go on a quick overnight trip. So that is good to know. Thanks!!!

I agree. I got rid of my cruiser because it was 'tired' looking. The Fury is cool; but, I do a few overnight trips on it and a backpack is OK. But a set of hard bags really gets the job done.

Saddlebag.
Fury.

Doesn't really sound right.
As a person in the "50 something" era I can tell you that back in the late 60s and early 70s it was rare to see a chopper out on the open road without saddlebags of some kind. Even if it was a bedroll tied to the front forks (as I did). If you have any doubts try watching the movie "easyrider" :D

I cant recall ever seeing a chopper with saddlebags.

You really need to get out more. Fairing also. Pretty sure they consider it a chopper. Nice bike. Too bad they were a "boutique" bike, too much money.

In a month and a half or so on my vacation I will also have them. Riding up there to Hollister to get them put on, they said they would install them no charge. Saves me some shipping costs and gives me a chance to get a few hundred miles on the bike going up there and back. Can't wait.

OK, How about a set of these. they would mount under the rear fender between the frame and fender. NO drilling needed.


you just mount it here.
