Looks great! How did you fit those badges? I got a pair of those but found they were just a different shape to the side of the tank.

But on the other hand the 20% off would cut them down to roughly $600 which is still steep for me, but something that I might consider...
My bags are smaller and are about 5-7 yrs. old, they also stand out away from the bike too much to look good, especially at the bottom...
Thanks and have a good one...Tater...

The badges fit pretty well, had to bend the mounting bracket to contour the tank and have never had a problem... well not since I took all the 3m tape that comes on the brackets and replaced it with something stronger.

I found that wherever I tried to place the badge on the side of the tank, either the point at the front was sticking out from the tank by ¼" or so, or there was a big gap behind the middle of the badge, or both. Usually both.

I ended up using Night Train badges instead.
