PostSubject: Some big ass saddlebags?   Mon Nov 17, 2014 6:21 pm

Hi can anyone recommend some good sized saddlebags for the vl800/c800 which will clear the exhaust?
Just purchased a new to me fuel injected c800 but the bags on it are a bit tatty and old so looking for some larger ones so its better suited for touring.
Around £100 budget really. 
Will also get pics of the bike when i collect it but cant for a while as ive come down with chicken pox!

Hi Eazy, Congratulations on your new bike,,, I think your best bet will be to scour eBay for some good used ones.

I don't think that is pricey for the bags that your getting, bloody good bags in many ways.

I got my mammoth bags from Custom Crusiers at Alfreton for £100-00, good value & very very large & the owner is very knowledgable! Mention the 800 forum & you usually get a discount also!

Managed to track down the exact ones i used to have:

http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=ro&u=http://www.motor-bike.ro/motor-bike-ro/eshop/1-1-ACCESORII-MOTO/179-2-Genti-chopper-Cobburi/5/1941-Genti-Chopper-IRON-HORSE-SATTELTASCHEN-27L&prev=search

For the life of me i cant find any that are that size or bigger. They fit perfectly on my vl800, but even with them i struggled to take all my camping gear hence looking for alternatives for a good price

Yea they were big. Biggest i could find at a good price are some on ebay, 23 litre. Sports bike panniers are best, often expand to 40+ litres each. I may buy some sports bike ones for long hauls and some smaller leather ones for daily rides

Cheers been trolling around the net looking for the largest i can get. The brand is Oxide and they do a few saddle bag models of larger sizes around 33l. 
I just worry they might rub on the fender or block the passenger pegs. Very hard to tell without buying them. But 53 litres each!? You could pretty comfortably tour two up with that
