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-lamellar-large-leather-covered-non-shock-cutout-hard-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.
I would appreciate it! Thanks

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?

Oops, side photo
I bought the same (almost same - - mine are gloss black) bags. I bought the stays from a member here and I just received the mounts in the mail yesterday. My next days off I will be mounting them on my Valkyrie. I will post pics as soon as I get them on. I am hoping it goes quickly but I see that I have to pretty much disassemble the whole rear to get the mounts and bags on!

I've had all the parts sitting in my garage for a couple weeks or so. Eventually I will get to mounting them!

Viking bags with factory brackets.
Do the front of your bags kind of flare outward because of the stock honda mounting hardware?

I'm currently installing my Viking bags with he honda factory mounted and I have a very noticeable flare going on. The Honda mounts are not parallel to the bike, they are parallel to the rear fender.

Yes, they do flare outward in the front. Here is a picture of mine.

So I own the Corbin gunslinger solo seat and the touring seat ,I have been a viking bags owner for years but they have always had bike specific bags so my question is, since I have two different types of seats, do I need both mounting brackets?
