Top Shop is a favorite on here. I went Bad Dad for a few hundred cheaper and was pleased with the quality

Lol. Wouldn't be worth it for either of us unless someone could pick them up. Shipping is crazy. If/When I go down and back I'll use the Bad Dad Comp Series

Just joking. Yeah I've heard alot of good things about Top Shop. My brother in law has the Bad Dad bags and rear fender. He likes them. Their shop isn't to far from me, about an hour away. Not sure how good the Milwaukee Baggers bags are, but they have been around for awhile.

It depends on how much you want to spend really. Yes top shop bags are a top notch product but you're gonna pay top notch prices for them. Also do you want fiberglass or ABS bags? I've seen extended bags on ebay for under $500, some glass some ABS. Don't know the quality but I'm sure no matter what bags you get there will be bodywork needed before paint.

I have looked at bags all over, I am just going with a set on ebay 5" extended with 6.5 lids for 485.00.. Just don't see the justification of the extra 500+ without lids.. This will be the 4th set we ordered and the quality is good, a little more prep but worth the savings.

Ill post pics once I get these and mocked up.

I went Top Shop for many reasons, I researched bags for about a year before I bought and narrowed it down to Milwaukee or Top Shop, TS offered the best service, prices were close, and I guess I also like the fact the bags are lined inside. They fit better than OEM, BTW my painter loved them, he said he only spent about ten minutes per bag for prep which was the least he's ever spent on any brand, and now if someone ask him and they don't already have bags, he recommends Top Shop.

DS... Are you talking about the 5" Fairing Factory bags?

And DBell, I too have heard incredible things about the TS bags.

I'm not really worried about lids because I'm getting Hogtunes lids because I'm planning on running 6x9's in the bags.
