I have had these bags on my 2005, 883 custom sporster since I bought the bike new. since then I have put 53,000 Miles on these bags rain or shine hot or cold going back & forth to work interstate and highway miles. I have had them really loaded up and probably abused them and they our still just Holding up like new. They our also easy to clean. Just water and a rag. Would purchase them again.
DK was exactly right about the fit of these bags...they "probably fit." I just had to make a new set of holes in the connecting material so they rode higher up (to stay 2" above the pipes) and now they fit great on my 2009 750 Shadow Spirit, look great, and hold lots of stuff. Love the quick-zip release, easy access buckles, and hidden handles for easy carrying. Went on a 5 hour ride with them the next day and they didn't stretch at all. Will write more if anything changes but am absolutely likiing the bags so far.
