It looks nice on the bike! The shape looks like the shape of the radiator cover.
I've been slowly sorting thing out since I got my bike three months ago .Windshield ,running lights,seat. I have ordered the oem mounts which from all I can gather from pictures should work very well on anything with a flat back.I am going to order these : https://www.tsukayu.com/QuickDetachableStrong.html I may have to make a small bracket like many here have done to relocate the rear turn signals.Needless to say I'll NOT be using any type of "easy bracket",but will mount directly to oem stays which are three point mounts. Should be pretty simple .... RodI ordered a Tsukayu batwing and bags for my V-star about a month before it developed some mysterious illness which nobody seems able to diagnose. When I e-mailed them and explained what happened, they gave me an immediate refund.
I was wondering about mounting Tsukayu bags on the oem mounts, Tsukayu said it's not really doable. However, I still want their bags for my Valkyrie.
I'm thinking of just mounting Pelican cases instead of bags since they are weatherproof, flat, and should be easy to mount............
Does your wife ride on any bikes? The Valk is the only bike my wife will ride on, even though I have the full dress GL1500, which is much more comfortable.

Here is a good thread on other valk sight that show how well factory mounts bolt up to a flat surface:I'm thinking of just mounting Pelican cases instead of bags since they are weatherproof, flat, and should be easy to mount.
Ive been thinking of doing something like this with Givi boxes using the OEM saddlebag mounts.. Some Givi hard boxes would actually look as if they were made for the Valk.
