Default Best Bags

Best bags for a 1200 C touring mod. Any suggestions? Want a leather or leather like covering over a hard bag. Should be lockable and removable and have plenty of storage. No bling.

Thanks, Jumpman

Strong recommendations for the LeatherPros products. Check out these threads:

Leather Pros Saddlebags and Trunk
Leather Pro Trunk Bag
LeatherPros Saddlebags

Not cheap but worth it. The are sturdy, look good and can be attached/detached in seconds.

XLFREAK is an unknown quantity at this point

I got the Harley teardrop saddlebags. Plenty of storage space but the brackets that come with the bags makes the bags stick out too much. I am going to have the brackets modified to have the bags fit closer to the fender.

Smile tanks alot

although everyone is correct but i hate the look of bags, so when i went to tupelo i used a tank bag. for me it was okay but i dont need to carry much.
