Default Saddlebags for Iron 883

Hi,

Looking for some saddlebags for my 2012 Iron 883. I want something that is easy to put on and take off as I'm only really using it to take paperwork home from work on occasions.

Cheers

I found a set after about two weeks of searching, they were cheap but they should do till i can save up for quality.

Jafrum is the company.
SD4061 is the set i got on mine.

Dude!
Don't take work home, its a slippery slope.

Repeat this phrase: " Sorry boss, but I'm trying to save money on gas, so I ride the bike, sorry but there's no way to carry these valuable documents safely."

not to go off the topic. I use a tankbag that turns into a backpack for papers and books, and a backpack a lot of the other times,
i've tried the messanger bags for motorcycling but they make me feel off balance.

there are briefcases that mount like tank bags.

I have another huge shipment of XL Series IV throw over saddlebags arriving. In order to get the price down I had to order more than I could use.

That is good news for the XL Forum members. I am making them available to Forum members at the wholesale price. Fifty dollars off my lowest retail price.The Forum is the only place I will be making this price known.

To order your bags at the reduce price enter the coupon code: xlbags
when you check out. The shopping cart will automatically subtract Fifty Bucks from the price.

Want to save even more? Mail in your domestic order paid with a money order and it ships for free.

Questions? email me at donc314@hotmail.com

All my best!

Ozark (Don)

Get them here: DCW Plain jane

i have been using a set of tourmaster cruiser II slant bags. medium, i think. they are the only saddle bag i found (im sure there are many others though) that fits with the stock plate/signals on the iron/nightster. just toss em on when you need it, and take em off when you dont.

down side is, since i dont have supports, if you ride for a long time, the shocks can wear through the padding on the back. i put about 2000 miles with them on, and its got a small hole in the pad. but the pad is to protect the bag itself, the "leather" (actually synthetic) is still okay. i dont know if it will get much worse, but i will find out next week when i put another 1k on em.
