Love these quality bags! You can't beat Willie and Max for "a good bang for your buck!" They fit perfectly between the seat and tail lights on my bike (Honda 750 Shadow Aero) and look awesome with the slant style and the braiding around the swoop-cut flaps. The Eagle, which is metal, not plastic, is a nice finishing touch that gives them a classy, patriotic look. Have not tried the zip-off feature yet, but like the idea, and they stay very secure with the Velcro flaps over the zippers. They definitely need bag brackets to keep them out of the rear wheel and to tie them to so they don't move around in the wind when riding.This size is not huge, but large enough to carry my rain gear, hat and extra gloves, and to put my jacket into when it's really hot. The jacket is a bit of a squeeze, but can be done. (We had the same bag in the largest size on my husband's old Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 and they were big enough to carry enough gear for both of us for a weekend.) I would highly recommend these bags!
Dennis Kirk has by far the best price out there. I have purchased a lot of extras for my bike from them and they have never failed to give fast, excellent service and are always helpful when I had a question regarding fitment.
