Saddle bags

Just traded in my 09 Sporty for a 13 Deluex.
Im looking for saddle bags because the Heratiage just did not do it for me. It did not have the white walls, it had ape hangers also it had short mufflers. i like the look of the long shots. But I like the look of the bags. Any suggestiins and mounting brackets.
Thank You.

It would really depend if you want a solid mount or detachable. I just put on solid mount bags on my bike as I have no plans on taking them off.

Isn't a Deluxe pretty much a Heritage without bags?

I have a 2011 Deluxe and I had on there some Leather Pro bags. I just sold them to somebody on another forum. I decided to go with another look. There was no brackets to mount, just some bushing. Locks inside & out. Quality saddlebags, but not cheap. I have some pictures of them on my bike.

I'm also shopping for bags. These from Leather-Pro look a whole lot like Boss Bags. Same sizing, (ie; 3000series hold 30 cans of beverage), same features, etc. Prices are close. Even a guy standing on the bags! Are they sister companies or just very close competitors?

Does anyone have the Boss Bags?

i have the longshots, really like them. i wanted to make sure my bags hung straight, not angled inwards. plus be able to remove them easy. i went with ghost brackets. also when me and the wife are on it the rear goes down getting the bags closer to the pipes. sitting it looks like it could use bigger bags.

Dee, if it interests you I have a set of HD fatboy bags gathering dust in my garage.
