So...I've seen a lot of guys on here putting the Cortech "Sport" bags on their bikes and they look awesome...but too small for my needs!! These are the Cortech "Tri-Bag" saddle bags. They have an optional 3rd bag that you can buckle across the top of the rear passenger seat. These are very spacious bags and easy to put on...a few min. to be exact!! The paint side of the bags are made of kinda like neoprene or something so they won't scratch the paint, and helps secure the bags to the bike. There are two front support straps and two rear support straps to hold the bags in place (pictured). The two main straps fit under the seat pretty easily...kida had to force the seat a little, but it all worked out!! Bought these at the local stealer for $155....cheapest on the net was $153 with shipping....so i figured what the hell, whats 2 extra bucks, right?? Now I"m ready for my ride to Fountain City to do a run on the Missisippi river Aug. 18-20th!! I will post pics when I get back!! Ride safe all!!-HELL :evil:

I just hope the bags don't start to sag in toward the wheel... I mounted my Sport bags under the seat instead of over, and I noticed this morning that they have been rubbing on the wheel... Got a decent worn spot in the neoprene pad, and a small hole in the rear seam of one of the bags. :mad: Not bad enough to cause issues... I'm just glad I caught it when I did. Be sure to keep an eye on yours.

Yup them are the bags i was looking at,now can your wife/girlfriend set in the passenger seat and still be comfy with them installed,or are they hitting the legs of the passenger to much?

Looks good... one suggestion - get the seat bag... and the bungie tie downs from Hal.

The seat bag clips into the side bags (I cut off those other straps - they're supposed to be for carrying the bags around)

The seat bag has built in bungies with heavy plastic hooks - they work PERFECT with Directline's bungie mounts. I started with them under the seat but went over after the first day's ride cuz it's nicer to clip and carry everything into the room. A five second job.

Do you know if these will work if I have my turn signals mounted on the chrome fender where the bungee buttons go? I`m not into bags but after taking a 300 mile trip with a backpack I am ready for bags and I like these the best so far :bigthumbsup:

Negative GhostRider... The bags rest against the chrome fender struts... and the signals just stick out too much.

I sure hope these don't f-up your paint job. I find that just about anything no matter how soft that touchs my paint scratched it.
