Viking bags

I am looking for a set of saddlebags for my '04 America. I saw Viking bags.

Does anyone have any experience with them?

Thanks

I added a set to my 2012 America about 6 months ago. I was a little skeptical about the quality and fit, because the price was low. I took the chance and I'm very happy with my choice. The quality is very good and they look great! I don't think you can go wrong with their bags. Getting the mounting kit included clinched the deal for me. They were easy to install and fit perfect. Here's a pic of them on my bike.

Although they weren't too communicative, they delivered quality bags in a hurry for a very good price. The Quarter Circle bags compliment the lines of my 2007 Speedie very well.

I'm really happy with mine. Hard-mounting was easier than I thought it would be (unfortunately, all the pics I have are from when they were still soft-mounted, and I'm ashamed to take a pic of it as dirty as it is now), and the price difference over Triumph bags is a MAJOR plus. I would definitely recommend them.

Just in case anyone is interested.

I received a set of Viking Bags on Tuesday. I installed them using the supplied hard mount kit. Pretty easy to install. Took about an hour and a half. I'll post pics as soon as I can get a hosting site set up.

Has anyone tried the Viking bag: Triumph America Charger Large Slanted Saddlebags.

http://www.vikingbags.com/product-16...7402-prd1.html

I like it because the Storage Capacity is 3094 Cubic Inches, but there is no photo on the web site, so I do not really know if it would fit well on an America.

Thanks,

I've been looking at the Viking bags as well, I am considering a solo seat, make and model still up in the air, also the fender rack, for some longer treks with the Speedy. Anyone using
Viking's quick disconnect keyed system ?
