    I put some denver slants on my 8-ball with easybrackets. Go to www.leatherneckjims.com and see a pick of my bike. Nice bags at a great price.

    The Semi-hard bags from Victory are the only ones that will flow with the lines of the bike and will look the nicest on your bike. They are not real big, but it's up to you if looks matter more than size. They fit nice and snug up against the fenders and look like they belong.

    I've had the ussaddlebags mentioned above. They are very nice and a nice large size.
    The biggest difference between the Victory bags and the aftermarket bags is that the aftermarket bags will have to flail out around the belt drive.

    Goodtimes,
    I'm digging up an old thread here, but I really like the look of your hardbags, and I am thinking of going that route on my Vegas 8 ball.
    I don't see your rear turn signals in your photo. Did you have to alter placement?
    Also, overall how do you like the Tsukayu hardbags? I'm thinking of going with the quick detachable version using Easy Brackets.
    They look great in the picture, but do you think they are too big for the bike? I have heard that complaint, but your photo cetainly doesn't appear that way.
    Thanks
    Todd

    Have to chime in here. Ihave used nothing nut US Saddle bags on all my bikes. They wear well. NEVERlose shape and are extremely hard to mar. I am not OCD type about my bikes. and those bags suffer the sun during the dasy and the rain and look as good as new 4 years later.

    They WILL go on my soon to be pruchased Victory (as soon as I sell the Yamaha) I passed the on cheaoer "Tour edition" of the V satr to avoid their bags and buy the US Saddle bags.
