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 would appreciate it! ThanksI 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.
ordered! Just waiting for them to arrive.Here are the ones you need if you plan on keeping the back seat on.
those look like Givi bags. I had some on my ZZR1200. very solid bags....pricey... unless you can convince a local shop to become a dealer and then sell them to you at their cost.
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!Oops, side photo
Do the front of your bags kind of flare outward because of the stock honda mounting hardware?Viking bags with factory brackets.
Yes, they do flare outward in the front. Here is a picture of mine.Do the front of your bags kind of flare outward because of the stock honda mounting hardware?Viking bags with factory brackets.
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.
