Sorry Jim, I still have them & don't use them but the are great as I made some quick locking detachable mounts for them when I need to use the bike for work. So I can't let them go.

The ones I'm using now are Viking panniers, Leatherette outside but a solid inner with a metal frame to hold the shape, As for use lol they're always full of stuff from flask,waterproofs,tools,sat nav,spare reg,locks and of course the micro fibre polishing cloth

Nice one Jim. I bought the M800 to get the clean look and those bags and the suzuki seat cowl would look great. Kevin

Very tempted with them Arron, but don't want to put them under the seat, think they might do a kit to hard fix, but not saved enough pennies yet  Very Happy

Well I got a reply back from the UK supplier and as far as I can tell it was just an automated response as it didn't actually answer my question?? so I have sent an email to them explaining again that at current exchange rates it should be approx. £45 GBP ......so lets see what comes back?.....don't hold your breath lol

I had just had a reply from Viking Bags. They suggest using their UK supplier http://www.motorcyclehouse.co.uk

In had an look on their site. The bags I want are out of stock and cost £125 But still very reasonable when you consider shopping costs and the dreaded duty. I will call them today. More importantly, my bike is being delivered to my house today at about 10 am

I just hoped I picked wisely. I have had a 2005 XL1200C (very underated bike), Vrod1130, Streetbob 96cu

I like the muscle styling of the M800 but am starting to like the chrome of the C800C.

Anyways without highjacking the thread, these bags look great and now feature a locking lid. Will have to measure the bike when it arrives to ensure they fit. One of the problems with the VZ800 Intruder M800 2010 onwards is that it is never listed. Does Uncle Sam not have these models?
