I'm grooving! Just ordered my "Gunmetal Pearl" Hard Saddlebags for my Fatboy that arrives next month! These (influnced by the "bettle bags by Corbin) are lockable with pleanty of room for my touring needs! Any comments?
They are different shape and there are both 100th and non-100th versions of the Locking Rigid Leather Covered saddlebags. Check the HD website...look under Softail...Saddlebags....in-store only.
Not sure but I would guess the hard ones you show are kinda small. Any bag made specifically for a Fat boy will be pretty shallow to clear the stock shotgun exhaust. keep in mind that once you go to all new non-shotgun exhaust (assuming you will) that most of the "fits softails except FLSTF and FLSTD" lines in the parts catalog no longer apply to you. Saddlebags, axel covers, swingarm trim, passenger pegs and all kinds of stuff are different for the fat boy (and sometimes Duece) because of the stock shotgun exhaust brackets. Once you go aftermarket exhaust (not just slip-ons) you can use a whole lot bigger saddlebag and lots of other stuff.
