View Full Version : Anybody interested in a reduced price Lick's solo bag?

I talked to Lick's today about the possibility of dropping the price if we could get a group of people together. They sent me the following message:

thank u for ur interest in the licks solo bag...with the bag priced at 199.00...we are still trying to keep up with the orders....the quality/style and function of the bag surely justifies the cost and all receiving all have agreed...with that being said...we do still offer a discount to group buys as well...we have done so in the past and will again to any groups interested...usually if we can get atleast 12 group members interested....we can do a group price of 150.00 each...a savings of almost $50.00 per bag.....let us know.....we need atleast 12 bags to be sold to get the group rate.....and thanks again for ur interest....aj

I am not willing to pay the 199 for the bag. A savings of 50 would be a good enough deal to convince me to buy one. I don't think this violates rules since they are a sponsor. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate sub-forum however. I will start a list and you guys let me know what you think.

**********************UPDATE********************** *******

I was asked about the possibility of including all bags not just the 04+ here is the response from AJ at Lick's:

any xl bag style/year...is fine.....even the new dyna bag and softail/rigid bag as well if u have some bt buddies interested............



**********************UPDATE********************** *******

Lick's phone number is (413) 663-9050 and we will be placing the individual orders by phone. I have been talking to aj thibert. If someone beats me to talking to them at Lick's tell them we have over the 12 people. Then once everyone places their orders we will wait for the bags. The site says they average 2 weeks for shipping. Just want to make sure everyone knows that before the order these things.

I don't want another, (already got one) but this bag is well worth $150.00. Make sure the '04 - '06 members know about it too. It fits them. (mine is an '05)

Does it have to be the same bag? What I mean is that if they let you mix the pre-2003 style bag in the 12, I'd definitely take one.

Count me in. (no indian head nickels, if possible, just plain)

Couple of questions, Derek, if you know: Will this group order be paid for individually or .... and what's the time frame for this size order??

883xl,
Looks good on your bike.....well, the bike looks great anyway.
Not what I want in a bag, though.....not satisfied with what I have either.
Guess I'll wait until I see what catches my eye right.

I would prefer w/o the nickels as well.

When do you anticipate this order going down, AND how long do you think it will take to get them in... check that info too....

I will be moving back to Mass in 39 days... and could just as easily pick those up...

update first post to include solo bags. I don't think I can run this in thread in multiple forums without violating rules. If anyone wants to share this please feel free.

By doing that, you could probably put together a bigger group buy than anticipated... which is good for all parties...

I would assume any option available would be fair game. When I talked to AJ I told him I was concerned about payment. I did not want to have to pay for all of them together because then everyone would have to send their money to one person. I thought this was inappropriate because half of us don't know any of the other people on the list.

Here is what they are going to do at Lick's. They said when we have 12 people let him know and everyone will call and place an individual order. Once all 12 people have called and set up there order they will process the payments from each person individually. So basically your order isn't processed until everyone orders.

So we don't have to worry about sending money to one person. Since they are individual orders I would also assume the piping and etc can be ordered. If it cost additional for the piping then you might have to add that to the 150.

Is the piping additional cost normally? I can try to get an answer if noone else knows. We are getting close on the list if we can just pick up a few other people.

Also if anyone changes your mind please remove yourself from the list so we can keep an accurate number.

Thanks for your interest and helping me get a better price on these things. I'm a bit of a miser at times and try to save as much cash as possible given the opportunity.

It looks like we have 12 if everybody is definitely in. We can start calling after the holiday to place the orders I guess. As long as 12 people place the order we are good for the price and if 12 don't the order isn't processed until we do.

I should be updating the thread and keeping track of everything over the weekend. Hopefully (Hurricane pending) I will be able to process mine early Tuesday. I'm taking my Nightster if we end up having to evacuate. So I'll need the bag regardless of what happens.

Thanks for everyones interest and if we get more than 12 that is great because if someone backs out we still get the discount.

Thanks

I have been looking at that bag for months 200.00 just couldn't do it 150.00 sounds better.

I just added some contact information for Lick's in the first post. Since we have enough people we should begin ordering as early as Tuesday as I believe Lick's will be closed Tuesday. They are in Eastern time zone but I don't know their hours. I figure they should be open by 9 Eastern. If anyone has any questions for me try to direct them to me over the weekend as I will likely lose power due to the oncoming hurricane on us here in Louisiana. Like I said in the above post depending on the weather I might evacuate with the Sporty but should still be reachable. If anything comes up I will post my phone number via my internet on cell phone so people can contact me.

All the business at this point is really just placing the order with Lick's.

Thanks guys

I registered and sent an e-mail. My bike is a 1999, so if this disqualifies me for the group buy please PM or e-mail me. Thanks! :)

They make an 82-03 bag so you should be good for that one.

To everyone, I appreciate your participation and I think we are all getting a good deal. I couldn't have done this without everyones participation and AJ and Lick's willingness to give us the discount.

you should probably go through the steps as AJ outlined and give Lick's a call to make sure you get a discount to your account. I'd ask your passenger peg question when you call. I'd do that all ASAP though. They put a deadline of yesterday on this offer.

I got my bag ordered this morning. I just want to say thanks to everyone that participated.

For those of you who care. I decided not to evacuate for the hurricane. The sporty is fine but I did sustain some damage to the roof that was in an isolated area of my home. I was pretty lucky overall. I have the roof damage and then I found the leak after daylight the next day and my oak floors in the front of the house had began buckling. It sucks because my house is barely a year old, but a lot of people had more damage than me and I have insurance. I'm pretty happy my home held up as well as it did in 100 mph wind.

This is a great deal. I can't understand why 100 people are signing up for this. In the past, group buys only applied to a single unique part.

There is a post on here that someone posted that said it fit but the peg rubbed the bag I believe. Then a follow up post by another member stated that you could place a spacer in the peg to prevent the problem. There were several people who all posted things like putting a felt tab between and several other methods. It could be helpful in making your decision. I have no idea what the title of the bag is but if you search for Lick's you should be able to find it.

If you can't find it then I might have read it on hdforums. I read both forums and sometimes I get confused on what I read where. It was a whole thread about lick's bag with passenger pegs. If I get a chance I'll try to find the thread.

That' my thread. I have the bag mounted. I had to do four things (keep in mind I have a rigid 2002):

1) Tie wrap the fuse block cover (the thing that the side cover and now the bag screws in to) to the frame of the bike just so I could feel comfortable that the thing would pop out of the grommets.

2) Use 5/8x1/4x3/8 nylon spacers between the bag and the fuse block cover to space the bag out from the battery box. The bag does not fit between the battery and the shock as the site states. I think I'm going to need add another washer for the bottom screw.

3) Add felt to the back of the bag to cover the stitching so my fender and battery cover won't get all scratched up.

4) Adjust my passenger pegs to swing horizontally along the swing arm. This was a piece of cake even with my custom pegs because I can rotate the foot pad simply by loosening an allen bolt. I can probably ditch the passenger pegs but I need to figure out what to put in the holes first. I'm running out of town as I'm going to Delmarva Bike Week on Wednesday (probably in the rain :()

As I stated on my thread, I was willing to do this stuff because I wanted the bag to work. It's a beautiful high quality bag. As soon as I get my black powdercoated luggage rack on tonight, I'll shoot some pictures. My bike looks nothing like the pictures in my gallery now.

Well, I think it should definately go by that list :smoke...but I think they also said they put into production a bunch of standard bags with no special requests early so those will probably get filled first...

Great C/S, I dont know of MANY companies that call when a part ships that you are waiting for...

Yep, only thing I can say, I wish I didnt have to wait...

BUT, its a VERY quality piece, and the wait was well worth it.... The leather work is right up there in quality with Vanson... so, I am pretty sure this will last the life of the bike...

Got mine! Put it on and it looks great. I tried to put the spacers and longer bolts on the passenger peg, but my hardware stores longest bolt was just shy of giving the peg room to fold up against the bag. Oh well, at least it puts the peg out there enough for it to be usable with the bag. I think they may be sending the bags out in the order the orders came in to them. I paid for mine almost the instant I got the email with the promo code. Don't worry it is well worth the wait. Sturdy, great looking bag!

I got an e-mail from AJ yesterday. Special orders (no nickels, red piping, etc) will start going out early next week. I didn't think not putting on nickels would take longer!:laugh:laugh

Thes bag is sweet. Picked up an icy tall boy on the way home from work and just tossed it in. Much better than its usual spot shoved in the front of my pants next to my boys. Unless your into that kind of icy thrill.

I got mine Monday evening. Very high quality leather and workmanship!

I've used it to pack something every day. Lunch for work, a trip to the hardware store, and a quick trip to the grocery. You can't fit tons of stuff in it but enough to be handy.

Yesterday morning was pretty chilly here so I wore a sweatshirt and jacket. I could only fit one of them in the bag for the ride home. It sure beats the hell out of a backpack though. :D

But, seriously this IS the perfect day to day bag... I love it...

The fact that the straps can actually be adjusted, to make a little more room for things, I was able to fit some gym clothes in there... etc....

Again, great job guys...

Anyone have this on with a two-up seat, Does it interfere with the passenger pegs ??

To get it to fit the way I wanted, I needed to take off my passenger peg. I've heard that some have made it fit, but I couldn't and get it to sit where I wanted.

spacing the passenger peg out an inch or two, would solve that problem. I wont know for sure until I give it a whirl....

But, yeah, this bag is a big hit with me...

I spaced mine out about 3/4". Its not far enough out to fold the peg up against the side of the bag, but gives enough usable peg for a rider. I might space it out further, if it bugs me but its good for now. Hell, my wife rode it and she didnt complain and you know how wives like to complain especially about motorcycles!

Howdy!

I'm new to the forum and just saw this thread. Any chance of a new Solo bag group buy?

I just bought a new '09 Nightster while stationed in Germany for a commuter bike at my new duty location in Los Angeles and could REALLY use one as the backpack thing is causing me to get sweat stains on my uniform like you wouldn't believe.

My Lick's Experience:

Ordered my solo bag on the 7th of February. When I ordered it was already on sale because of the "economic disaster most working families have been facing lately". I punched in the coupon code from this thread and got like another $20 dollars off. On the product page it says in big bold letters that there is a "heavy demand" and to not even expect my bag being shipped for at least "two weeks". We'll I (my wife actually) got a call today saying they were shipping my bag and sending it priority mail.

Seriously!?!? I mean I already got a huge discount(s), they more than fairly warned me it was going to take beyond two weeks (so I wasn't expecting it for like a month or longer), and then they go and give me a personal call to tell me they are expediting the shipping!?!?!!!!!111!!

Every business should follow Lick's example! I almost feel guilty now for how much they have gone out of the way. I'll be sure to check Lick's for anything I need to order in the future before looking elsewhere, I don't even care if it costs more.

I'm thinking about pulling the trigger and getting one of these. Torx wrench? Just how do you install this bag? Can it be installed and removed quickly and easily. I don't care about the rear foot pegs. I don't have any.
