Would that be the 103 model pictured here on the Bonnie: http://leatherworksinc.com/103.php ? Two versions, 12x13.5x5 or 12x13.5x7, anyone had experience with the look of the fatter one?

I have some of the Triumph saddlebags. They didn't actually work as they came from Triumph, but we needed them so I modified them with the clips Ortlieb uses on their panniers. After that, they worked pretty well and made trips throughout the deep south and west to Idaho and back. This year, we replaced them with Metal Mules.

I never really like the Triumph leather bags, but they did work pretty well; and with our stuff in garbage bags for liners, they served well in rain.

Regards, Chuck

I've got Triumph saddlebags and my only complaint is the velcro holders which after a while they don't secure well; however, they aren't going anywhere with the seat securing them firmly.

Have been out in the rain and they've kept their shape very well (at least better than the stock leather bags that I had on the 2010 Thunderbird, that warped).

They don't hold a lot, but are functional nonetheless. Certainly better than a backpack and bungies. Overall, I'm satisfied.

On looks, I think they kill the bike, but I'm getting so old now, I don't give a rats about looks as I do function.

I bought the 103 bags and returned them for the 127 bags. I think it fit the bike better

I have the Triumph bags - they work well and hold more than you think. Use Heine Gerike inner bags and totally waterproof and do the job. Always take them off when not required and treat like a pair of shoes - give them a polish every so often. They look ok but not great however when touring who cares!! I use a frank thomas tank bag and the wife has a rucksack - enough for a week or so touring around the wet British Isles.....
