I have seen it and it still looks good IMO. I found pics searching on this forum.

I've seen it in person actually and it's not my cup of tea either. I'd go extended fender also.

If you are going to do it, do it right the first time. It is more cost effective and will definitely look correct.

Here is a picture. I think it looks good. The cvo fender makes it look better but these bags make this bike below look a lot better. In my option the stock bags make the bike look like a pontoon boat.

I don't know man.........the exhaust openings are HUGE and make the whole bottom of that not look right. Plus the fact that the fascia and bag hight don't line up, which isn't helping it either

But that's just my input and really, what do I know

Don't get me wrong, it looks 100% better with a fender but if money is tight it doesn't look horrible.


I ordered my cvo fender and bags this earlier this week. I thought about just doing the bags but if I'm going to be painting the bags candy orange I might as well just spend the cash on the fender now and paint all of it at the same time.
