Sixers or Slimbags?

Yes, it is yet another saddlebags thread and question. And yes, I have used the search function to search for my answer.

Now, I want hard bags that can be painted. I thought about Tsukayu strong bags but I got a gift card to a local motorcycle dealer and will be using that to help with the bags. This means my choice is either the sixers or slimbag as they came get them. Which is what I was leaning towards anyhow.

The question is those that carry a passenger. Which bag is better for leg room? It seems the sixer might be better.

Has anyone had complaints about the Slimbag encroaching on their passenger?

Does anyone have a picture of the sixers on the tbird from behind? There are tons of the Slimbags but I would like to see some Sixers.

I do realize that they are both about 1400sqi. And I like the looks for the side of both bags on the Tbird.

Thanks,
Andre

No problem for the passenger with slim bags. Not much room in them if you're traveling. Have you considered the Edge 112?

The Edge 112 are leather at least the photos I saw. Personally, I don't like that look.
And I will be painting a custom job on my Storm. So, I want to match the bags.

I don't mind not having much room. I tend to pack light and bring a tail bag.

Thanks for the suggest.
