    Looks AWESOME, Brother!!! I really like the way the back of your bike looks with the rear seat cowling with the bags.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

    Link shows the same bags I have. Possibly slightly different profile for the C.

    Regardless, they mount to the fender struts. Bolts are supplied with the bags.

    Bags mount to the fender strut bolts and are quick release. Great bags, but the shape won't win a coolness award IMO.

    This is the best pic I have.

    They cleaned up the front end and I think their front suspension is a trend we'll be seeing in all big bikes in the future.

    Deal breakers for me are the side loading bags, mid controls, and the...

    You'll need to remove the cowling and add fork mounts to mount the headlight.

    Doing so will probably remove the tach and idiot lights as well. I completely replaced my instruments.

    Had a buddy back in the day who picked up a brand new GS850G. He slapped a Vetter on it and added bags.

    At the time I was riding a GS550. I learned to ride it cafe style, with boot heels on...

    Looks okay to me. As was said, "form over function." I remember when the first Vetter fairings came out. People either loved them or hated them. We've come a long way since then.

    You should consider floorboards. They're far superior to pegs IMO. I also added forward controls.

    You WILL want wind protection, IMO. I started with the Rifle, but it scraped the paint on my...

    Twice in my life they've saved me from harm. Both times were with cagers changing lanes.

    A quick twist of the throttle is much quicker and much more intuitive than reaching for the horn button.
