OEM RGS stretched bags

I recently bought these "as new" OEM RGS stretched bags for my RGU. I can't decide if they add anything to the looks of the bike. Do they detract? Make no difference? (of course hardware is not yet attached) Thanks for your opinions.

leave the stretched on, i think they make the bikes look better, obviously when its on the stand it takes away but upright it makes the lines better

i like the oem stretched bags a lot better than the standard bags, and the aftermarket full stretch. the oem bags just look 'tiny' after looking at the stretched bags, and the full stretched just look 'off' to me.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I personally love the look of the RGS bags.

They look better from the back when combined with the RGS fender and look better from the side when the bike is on the side stand and you are approaching from a distance.

Especially with the black pipes.

If your emphasis is showing off your chrome then maybe they aren't for you.

I don't want to get onto a never ending customizing "roll"... when I bought the bags I didn't take into account the longer fender on the RGS, and I am a "chrome guy".

Stretched Look The Best IMO As Well

Not so much of a difference from the side view, but a big difference from the backside of the bike.

Just My Opinion

I put the same style on my last two CVO RGUs I've had along with the rear fascia and tri bar light. It adds just enough to it to give it a nice look without going with what I call the "billboard" look of the full length stretched bags. Sorry guys that have the full length ones. Just not my cup of tea.

Had them installed on the bike before I took it home. Like the way they look so much better than the stock ones. Come standard on the 2018 special. Not to sound like a dope, but can someone tell me how to post pics on this site?
