Looking for opinions on extended bag brands

Hey all,
Well I talked to my soon to be painter today, and I figured I'd better get on the ball about figuring out my end. I haven't yet decided if I'm going to do extended bags and fender yet, but I'd like to hear of brands I should not use and why not.

Here's what I'm looking for;
stock shaped extended bags, not too long I don't want to drag them too much
stock style extended fender, I want to keep my stock lights, which brings me to think of Milwaukee Baggers Street Sweeper add on fender piece

Ok so I just want longer stock looking stuff I guess. I like a little different, but I don't want anything crazy or recessed things. I like the lights I have on it, and I like that it still looks like a motorcycle.

And if you guys can talk me into or out of getting extended bags, all the better. Haha. Thanks for the input.

Are you looking for evenly stretched bags or CVO style gradual stretch bags?

Sounds like what I'm planning to do. My plan is to go with 4" Matazu prepainted bags instead of the 4.5" propular with most brands. And an Arlen Ness 4" fender extension. .

Thanks for the input. That does look like what I'm wanting to do. I could do without the tri-bar, but I suppose I can't get too choosey. Thanks a lot for the input.

I'd rather go a bit more traditional and conservative over the outlandish and flashy. Want a more practical style

Milwaukee Bagger makes one without. But you'd need to buy a light conversion so the taillight run/turn/stop light work properly...

I happen to agree. The Tri-Bar looks trick. That's part of the reason I converted my wife's E-Glide into a Street Glide. The tail took some welding to finish but it turned out well I think.
