saddle bags for a 1200 custom

I am trying to find a set where I don't have to relocate the tail lights on my '12 sportster. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I would do the relocate kit as a first step if i were you. Simply cuz you'll need the extra space gained by moving the rear flashers in order to be able to get half decent saddle bags with any sort of carrying capacity.

08 FLHTC. Breathing well and getting lots to drink.

depends on what you want. you can do the solo bags on each side or just deal with the fact that you may have to relo the tail lights.

Cool HD side bag

Comes with a proper mount and cost $220,,big too
swingarm mounts shake your stuff to death,,
dont put a cameras in those.

Frame mounted Is the only way I'd go..
Adding 10-12 Lbs of unsprung weight in the form of a loaded saddle
to my tuned suspension, not gonna happen.
