best bags i've ever owned. You can't mount the biggest style of boss bags if you have stock pipes. The pipes are too high and get in the way of the bag. If you have aftermarket pipes you can

Those bags look great. what ones are they the 36 or 42's?

1 pic has the wild 1 WO515 10" apes. The other 3 pics have the stock bars.

i ended up putting the stock bars back on because i had some handling issues....only to find out it wasn't the bars. I'll probably put the 10" apes back on this summer.

boss bags pics on Deluxe

Here are a few of my pics with the Boss bags installed. They look and work great. Lots of space. I think they were the next to the largest size offered. I loaded up a tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, and clothes for two weeks and took a 4400 mile trip from Mn. to Halifax, Nova Scotia and back this summer. Rode bikes for 7 days and spent 3 days in Hubbards Cove, Nova Scotia. Used stock seat all the way there----just fine. Put the airhawk cushion on the seat for the return trip--even nicer! You will like the bags. I take them off for just bopping around town. Takes 15 seconds to remove and no tools required. I looked at the Harley bags for the Deluxe---I couldn't even get a jacket or even my rain gear in those little wallets.

Thanks for the pics, Been wondering what a set would look like on a B/W Deluxe since I have one too. I agree with you, the HD bags for the Deluxe are way too small. I wish I could have seen a set before I bought them, got them from M and M Cycles.com. Pretty sure I will ebay them and get a set of Boss or LeatherPros. Bad thing is to get the larger size bags to work, I will have to dump the stock pipes and slip ons. The spending never ends!!

If I am not mistaken, this size bag I have will fit with the stock exhaust. Since I have changed my pipes, I could actually go with the largest size. I think that with the largest bag that Boss makes, there would be some extra hardware left on the bike when the bags are removed. I would say that these bags are at least as large as the bags on a heritage classic. They ride a little higher on the bike than the heritage classic bags, that is why you couldn't use the heritage classic bags on the Deluxe.

According to the Boss website, the 34 models will fit with the stock pipes. Any size bigger will not. I like the look of the 36, the way it slants back. Also, the 32 will not work with a tool box installed and I really like the look of the tool box on the Deluxe. Plus, been wanting a reason to change out the pipes anyway.

you're right. I've got the 42's and they are nice and big but when removed there is a bracket that stays on your bike. (a big bracket) I just leave the bags on all the time except when I bring them into the hotel on trips.

I think the tool box will work with the 36 bag but they give you a template to relocate, but you better check to be sure.

That sounds good then. Thanks. I'll be sure to ask about it. I hope to get some new bags by Spring.
