R Dragger bags

I need/want your opinion. Along with the "C" bags that I have been working on I have also been working on a modified version of the R bags.

It costs a pretty penny to make molds so I don't want to make something that no one is going to want... so

1.. Is there anyone that would want these?

2.. If I do make them do you think the lights should be vertical or horizontal. one or two.

all thoughts are welcome.

If you are making a show bike yes...they would stand out a little lower to the ground but that's only for a show bike. Everyday riding not sure ?? about that but I do like your ideals and keep them coming for real...where are the c bags...

Where are you thinking about locating the plate to? Very creative idea indeed. I'm just not sure how that is going to be a plug'n play set of bags if the buyer has to remove the license plate and relocate it somewhere else and then rewire lights.

I'm an old dog who believes in having a nice looking set of bag that are easy plug and play with roomy interiors for my junks. QQ came close to what I had envisioned but the ****y quality spoiled everything (time, money and more money) for me. They are sitting on the shielf waiting for the painter at this point. Quoted at $1200-$1400 to get them painted.

Why wouldn't these work for everyday riding? Looking at the pics it looks like they sit on the ground, they are only about 3 inches longer then the fender.

I'm thinking that the plate will hang from the bottom right, left, or center. I plan on putting mine on a motor so that when the bike is turned off the plate turns up out of sight.

I didn't think anyone took hard bags on and off on a regular basis.. except for me, only because I have been mocking up bags. I can put my standard R bags on and wired in about 15 minutes.

I like these. I been holding off on the QQ's due to shipping.
I think the two lights vertical is sharpest.

04 1300 Ceetro, Clayton mod, and otherwise stock.
03 1800 R, V& H Big shots, PCV, and more mods coming.

First set looks out of place to me, if your gonna go that far just pull the fender and make a whole rear end, JMO. The second set are freakin awesome, perfect lines for the X.

1) They look BADASS
2) I like the angle of the lights

Personal observations:
3) are there plans for "N" style fenders?
4) What is the ballpark guess-timate for price?
5) Would you have the option of NOT having the waves down the side of the bag? Just smooth?

They look awesome. I think you'd have a market (how big I'm not sure, but a market none the less)
