Hogworkz 4" Extended Saddlebags

Since my attempt at Mutazu extended saddlebags ended in total failure, I'm going to give the aftermarket ABS extended bags one more chance before going with the OEM CVO saddlebags. This time around I've ordered a set of Hogworkz 4" Extended Saddlebags in Denim Black. I ordered through DennisKirk since they have always been great at returns and credits in the past.

I just thought I'd start this thread and keep everyone posted on the outcome. New bags should be here next Tuesday. Crossing my fingers...............

Well, I've struck out again. Quality wise, the Hogworkz bags were 100x worse that the Mutazu. Guess it's going to come down to dropping a ton of coin on TopShop, Factory Match or Harley OEM CVO. Here is what I ran into;

I boxed it all up yesterday afternoon and shipping back to DK for a refund. I'm so dang frustrated with the process and myself. I should have just gone with the TS, FM or OEM to begin with.

Shit man sorry to hear.

I would try advan black they are great to deal with and everything I've gotten from them is pretty much just as good as OEM. I've turned on a lot of my riding buddies to them and they are all happy as well. I never bought bags from them but a shit load of lower fairings and a few tourpacks and paint and quality was awesome.

Well........a lot of times when it comes to certain parts there's a reason why they say you get what you pay for. Top shop, Bad Dad, Milwaukee Baggers, and OEM are 3 places that are a little pricey, but you very seldom hear complaints. If you want instant bolt on, OEM always works best. If you go with someone else, you may want them to ship your parts to somewhere like Factory match first unless you know a good painter or they offer to paint in your color.

I can't speak about the quality of Advan black, or anything other than OEM honestly. I really wanted some top shop bags but even they didn't line up well with the OEM fender I have so in the end I chose CVO bags. If you do choose bad dad or top shop I would highly recommend you just bite the bullet and get a fender while you're at it, if you can afford it. Makes all the difference in the world if you're going for a custom look.

Whitey, thanks for posting up the picture of your ride with the CVO bags. As long as I own this bike I doubt it will ever get the full custom rear end treatment. My wife and I ride and we live in Northwest Arkansas. So every road we travel has it's fair share of bumps, bruises, twists and turns. I just can't justify the $ it would take to do a full butt lift. I have too many other things that suck money out of me. Spending that much money on a rear end face lift means I'd have to spend a lot less time fishing, hunting or actually taking road trips.

I had around $1000 to $1300 total budget to play with. At this point I'm leaning towards the CVO bags denim black directly from Harley. I get a little bit of custom look, a little bit of extra room and something a little different than the other RGs I see running around this neck of the woods.

I've got the SE Street Cannons, so they should fill up the exhaust cutouts pretty nicely.

No problem. I actually didn't though. That's a signature pic😁 Not sure why they're so big. The CVO bags will give you a nice look, the paint will match and if you call PcPainr boardtracker I believe it's about $1K. I hear what saying about taking money from other hobbies. Don't think that you can't RIDE a custom though. Maybe not one of those air ride hugewheel stretched out jobs. I've got 40k on this bike. She takes me to SD, WY, MT, OR, ID, CA, all over WA and if everything works out next year she'll carry me from ME back to WA...if I don't wreck her again. Nothing of this relates to bags though. Sorry.
