saddle bag covers?

anyone have the shore fire design covers ?

they were about 90 minutes from me but just found out they moved to south carolina.

i ordered a set today 15% off and no tax now that they moved.

i had been looking around but never found anything but basic black covers .
for 179.00 includes shipping, i hope to be much happier then paying 125.00-150 for standard covers.

found 1 set of mustang covers on craigs list for 100.00 but i just didnt want the standard.

tired of using scratch x and rubbing out scratches in the damn soft paint every time i looked at the bike .

i even bought one of those expensive wool wash mits, special soap and have a dedicated bucket just for the bike.



i saw one bike that had awesome covers but they were custom made and cost like 450.00.
he has a friend that has top shop and he made them for him.

I would be interested how these fit and look when you get yours if you don't mind giving a review?

I'm curious as well... I've read great reviews on them, and the designs and pictures look awesome. I may bite the bullet and go with them as well.

I got my Shore Line bag covers today and it took about 30 minutes to put them on. I think they look fine, tight and no wrinkles; very professionally made (in the USA) as the little tag reads. They do make the lids a little harder to close, but if you mash down on the lid while latching, it is no big deal. At least now I won't be scuffing the paint when I am tired or forgetful and drag my boot over the lid getting off.

Everything I ever heard about saddlebag covers is. Once you put them on, you might as well keep them on forever. Because they will put more scratches on your lids. Kinda like a bra for a sports car.

Respectfully, I don't have any experience with Shore Line bag covers. Or any saddlebag lid covers personally. They do look like they are more fitted and much thicker then the typical lid covers. And a lot more expensive too.

Op - not knocking you on wanted these saddlebag lid covers. Just wanted to pre warn you regarding what others have experienced with other brand lid covers.

These covers are padded and have some very soft, fleecy material on the inside. If they do scratch, it can't be as bad as the side of my boot...

unwrapped the covers yesterday.my daughter added an envelope in the box with the cash for the total bill.

took about 5 minutes each to put them on. the night before i brought the bags into the basement to clean and wax them so they would be ready.

i got the silver flame style so they match the wheels. they would have made them in the root beer color to match the graphics but i feel the silver matches good and stands out better.

i cant figure out how to add pics .
