Default Single side saddle bag

Just rigged up a single side saddle bag for the scoot and changed the handle bars around for the millionth time. Also did some playin with pinstripe brushes on the battery. Oh, one more thing blacked out the sissy bar.



Let the critique begin.

Looks good, not sure I like the single sided bags those. Not your bike, just the look in general,

I rocked a single bag before I went full on Sporty bagger. I liked having the stuff along for the ride with the single. Looks good!~

Hey guys! I know I promised pictures of my Sporty long ago, but I finally finished all I wanted to do (for now ). Purely aesthetics yes, but I think it looks great! What do you guys think? Handlebars have a set of 1" risers, flip was done completely with stock parts, saddle bag did come in dual, but liked the single setup better. Bought the bags at leatherup, raisers....don't remember

Ran a single bag on my fxsts for years. Previous owner had spent a ton in chrome, swingarm, under fender splash guard and I was shocked when I removed the bags to do some signal mods at how much was hidden by them. It was no tourer, only used one bag so there you have it. Noticed that my OCD friends were freaked out by it (so I used it to torment them) lol.
