Ok its time for me to pull the trigger on bags and fenders and since im new to the whole harley thing (love those gsxrs) I need some help on this one...
I know I want extended bags and I also need replacement fender sold mine already got a few questions.

1. How low should I go before im scraping the bottoms all up
2. What about quality no flimsy cheap stuff
3. abs of fiberglass
4. Biggie or 2pac (LOL I was on a roll )

Chime in if you would pictures and combos (saddlebags and fenders) if you got them..
Include rear fender also I want to do this one time
O yea before I forget im not a fan of large gaps between the two

I'm also not a fan of the gaps between bags/fender. But, personally, I can't stand when bag cutouts don't line up with the fender cutouts. I've seen tooo many bikes that way. Just for that reason, I went with the same brand of fender/bags. I realized if I was spending that kind of money, it better match.

I went with Yaffes bags and Chupa fender. But who knows, when I get them I may need to make some adjustments, but they will match.

So maybe somebody else will chime in with how Sinister, Baddads, or others stuff lines up. From what I've seen they do. It's just when you mismatch brands it's a crapshoot.

Biggie here too!

So many nice products out there, but one of the OG's to me is BadDad. But all need some kind of tweaking when installing. Tupac for me, but I'm a Ice Cube guy.."Do yo thang mang F**K what dey lookin at!"...

I have the Chupa with the Top Shop bags and am worried about everything lining up. I'll have it test fit in the next couple days so I'll post a pic with what I find. If it doesn't look right I am not even messing with it, Yaffe bags would be on order.

Bill, I was debating. But I saw a couple pics w TopShop bags and a Chupa. They didn't line up like I was hoping they would. I ordered my Ness bags on Monday. After seeing how smooth all the bikes look on Yaffes site with the Chupa/Ness combo, I was sold.

FWIW, I hope yours do line up.

If they don't it's not the end of the world, I'll sell them and order the Ness Bags.

BadDad FTW! When I first got my bagger I feel in love with their stuff. And after I wrecked and got insurance money they were my first choice.

Oh and 2PAC>biggie.. But Im not a big rap/hip hop fan...

Classic rock FTW

Well said. They all need a bit of tweaking. Doing my baddad bags and fender now. I'll get some pics of mockup and put them up tomorrow. And, Biggie or Pac, you cant go wrong.

I like the down and out makes the bike look longer, cost more, sets you apart ,but gaps look wide between fenders and bags on every picture I've seen. Even got a good price from a vender on this site but those gaps look like Michael Strahans teeth.

it will be hard to find a set that are perfect for your needs it sounds like. Every bag and fender will have some sort of gap. You obviously dont want them touching. You are going to have a gap but it will be minor.

Im sure you have but go to the sites/google BadDad, Milwaukee,Yaffe,Sinister,Top Shop, Ness,etc..

In a couple weeks I wil post pics of my BadDad rear. I cant wait!
