Hard bags are BACK on...finished & updated pics!

I purchased these hardbags from http://www.invictamotorsports.com a few weeks ago, and I just finished mounting them tonight. It took me awhile to mock them up (mainly because I'm anal ), but overall the fit is great. I still need to fabricate some type of bar to attach to each bag and also attach to my license plate bracket in the rear. The bags move a little, so I'll need this bar to get the bags to be solid.

I believe that they are replicas of the Champion bags, because they look the same and have the same dimensions as the Patriot bags. Mine are the LS004 Ultimate Bags, and I also got the liners. I believe this is the first C model that these bags have been mounted to, according to the guy I spoke with before I bought them. His name is Terry, and he was great to work with and had fantastic customer service.

Here are the pictures I took in the garage. I'll get better ones when I get the bike outside during the day.

Those bags are exactly what I've been looking for. The Champions are nice too, but should be, considering the price. Just a couple of questions....How much $$$$ and did they come with the mounting hardware????

They are still pricey, but cheaper than Champion! I paid $850 for the black ones already painted. You can check their website for more info...click the Order link on their site for prices. It's cheaper by $100 if you get them primed, and it's also cheaper if you go with the smaller bags they offer (the Pro series).

I don't know if I would ever get a fairing...I'd never hear the end of it from my fiancee' who rides an Ultra Classic. She keeps telling me the more I add to the X, the more it's looking like a Harley!

To be honest, one of the main reasons I got the bags was to haul my own stuff with me...she kept kidding me every time I asked her to carry stuff for me in her bags. And I'd like to start riding my bike to my appointments to save on gas.

Biddy, I appreciate the kind words...I know it's not C.R.A.P material by a long shot!
