Wondering how these might do on a Bonnie. Better without lights.

No exp, but without the lights they might look ok. Still prefer a more period bag myself but that's not everyone's pref.
Mostly responding 'cause of the user name. ;)

I had a pair of these before, the quality isint bad for the price of a little over a hundred bucks. The latches dont fit tight and they open from the sides so stuff will fall out if you are not carefull. The same company on ebay that sells these have several different styles. They have nice paint and the chrome is ok, overall they are worth the money and look good on a smaller bike. The lights work too.

Thanks, Drifter. That's what I needed to know. These won't do if they can't be made to be waterproof. Using a seal of some sort on the opening might help but they would still have to close tightly. Lights would be nice as they'd increase visibility.

I've purchased the MC Resources supports along with the new quick-mounts:

So, I'll have a pretty wide range of bags to choose from. Tough choice when the field is so wide open! Probably end up with Saddlemen or Leatherlyke.
Cheers,
