Viking Saddlebags

Has anyone had any experience with the Viking Saddlebags?

https://www.vikingbags.com/viking-la...saddlebags.htm

Quality, size, ease of mounting on the Valkyrie etc?

Thanks

I have no experience with them, but they look pretty good. I think some guys have used the OEM mounting brackets to make them work. I know I have read about them somewhere for sure.

I have used Viking bags before and liked them, good quality. I just bought a set of these: https://www.vikingbags.com/viking-la...ard-saddlebags I think the leather covering will go well with my metallic red bike. They are slightly longer and taller but about 2" narrower so they hopefully wont seem as bulky as the oem leather ones. Still waiting on the factory brackets. Will post a picture when I get them installed.

So my Viking bags will be here tomorrow, and my saddlebag stays will be here on Saturday. Now I need to find some mounting brackets. Problem is, there are two different kinds....depending on single seat or standard (double) seat. I have the standard. Honda says the part number is 08L70-MJR-670 but when I go to locate them, I see two listings, each with the same part number but with two different product pictures.....

Is this just a result of poor posting by the seller, or is my part number wrong?

Here are the ones you need if you plan on keeping the back seat on.
