I have a 2004 VTX 1300C. I have the Honda saddlebags and bracket and just purchased the Honda brackets and standard low backrest. I don't see how these two could be mounted together unless I purchase longer bolts and additional spacers. I can't believe that Honda would sell these two products and that they would not go together nicely. You would think that people who put backrests on might likely want saddlebags as well. This all makes me think that I may be doing something wrong. Has anyone put both of these on their bike at the same time?
