2014 bags

I recently saw the 2014 bags and really liked how they closed and opened. Does anyone know if there is a conversion for 2012 bags to make them like new style? Probably too early huh?

Probably too early but I agree the new latches are a great improvement.

I'm glad it's facing the bike...if it was on the outside it would look like a toilet flush lever.

The latches are cool and the whole system feels sturdier

That's funny cnidog and true. I like that the bag can be easily opened even while sitting on the bike.

I'm sure the aftermarket will have something before the new roadglide hits the floors, I wouldn't expect the moco to bother with it, might take away from sales.

And although it seems fairly easy for the moco to offer an upgrade path for the new infotainment system, at least for the bat wings, I wouldn't expect them to do that either.

By the way, if anyone's interested in the capabilities of the new stereo, while contemplating a new bike, the stereo owners manual is $10.

Somebody on another forum has already verified that the '14 bags will fit on older models with nothing more than an adjustment to the brackets on the bike, both need moved 1/4" or less.

So, assuming you can find some the right color..........

+1 on what tdkkart says.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the rounded off look. I guess that's good anyway - Candy Orange is gone too. I think I might look into adapting the new lid hardware (hinge/latch) though. Might be some hope there.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!
