    I say they are a little small. Personally, I think bigger bags look better on the Rocket. I see there are many bags online so your work is cut out for you.

    Lots of forum members swear by EZ brackets, I got mine a couple of months ago and if I didn't have chrome cage guards around mine I would ditch the stock frames and attach stock panniers to them. Factory panniers are real leather but very expensive new >$1000 AUD but bargains come up on ebay and here. How much of a hurry are you in?

    What is the outfit in your photo?

    I had a set of Viking bags. Good for about 2 years before the latch leather cracked, and stared flopping around.

    I too have the Viking bags with the quick release locking brackets for a couple years now. I really like them and have had no trouble with them but my bike is in the garage at night. Under $300 for it all said and done.

    I mounted the Triumph saddle bags to the ezi brackets, bit of cutting and welding to do but not a big job, and the bags mount into the original bracket

    I I have used 3 sets of easy brackets and feel they are a great product.
    I have also used several sets of River Road bags (extra large slant) with good results for inexpensive bags.

    Detachable Cs4 saddlebags for custom & cruisers. Universal, waterproof motorcycle bags.

    I cannot tell you enough of how awesome these bags are. Made to order, it was about 20 extra dollars to have aluminum reinforcement on mounting side and bottom. The leather is thick as all hell. The locks actually work and they send you 6 copies of the keys. These were bought as a replacement for the Triumph ones I had, because I went down in May and now the OEM bags are $950.00USD. So, I shopped around and found these. They shipped from Belgium for $370.00USD. I don't think I've made a better cost to quality ratio purchase for my girl in the over 5 years I've had her. I wish all companies i deal with were like this one. I literally just installed them this past week, so no pics. If you're interested I'll grab some tomorrow. (Las Vegas time)
