Nice man looks good I like your paint a lot and your exhaust. How are those Topshop bags to work with? I almost bought some a while back but did something different.
Yeah the Top Shop bags look good. I like the Gen II with the swoop in them.
I got lucky that my Yaffe fender and TS bags lined up in the exhaust cutouts. i cant stand the difference in holes, it looks unfinished
Top shop will build those bags for us with a radius exhaust opening but that shape exhaust opening is far less forgiving when fitting to your pipes. For instance, even when we tell them we are using 4" diameter mufflers, mufflers from different manufacturers may have different mounts on them which will put them at different heights in the exhaust cutout. It is almost impossible to bolt fenders w fillers and long bags onto your bikes and have a tight exhaust opening that fits your mufflers perfect. That's why most exhaust openings are L shaped. It almost always takes at least a little labor once the parts are on the bike during mock-up to final trim the parts for a perfect fit. Here is a bag design that we came up with that Top Shop builds for us. We call it the Bevel bag since its beveled on the bottom for extra ground clearance when cornering. In the middle its a 4.25" stretch and its totally carpeted inside with a false bottom to separate your storage compartments. For more info go to:

I would have thought mine would have lined up a little been better since I used both thier bags and fender. I really didnt feel like cutting it up to make it perfect though.
