Top Shop is a favorite on here. I went Bad Dad for a few hundred cheaper and was pleased with the quality

Lol. Wouldn't be worth it for either of us unless someone could pick them up. Shipping is crazy. If/When I go down and back I'll use the Bad Dad Comp Series

Just joking. Yeah I've heard alot of good things about Top Shop. My brother in law has the Bad Dad bags and rear fender. He likes them. Their shop isn't to far from me, about an hour away. Not sure how good the Milwaukee Baggers bags are, but they have been around for awhile.

It depends on how much you want to spend really. Yes top shop bags are a top notch product but you're gonna pay top notch prices for them. Also do you want fiberglass or ABS bags? I've seen extended bags on ebay for under $500, some glass some ABS. Don't know the quality but I'm sure no matter what bags you get there will be bodywork needed before paint.

I have looked at bags all over, I am just going with a set on ebay 5" extended with 6.5 lids for 485.00.. Just don't see the justification of the extra 500+ without lids.. This will be the 4th set we ordered and the quality is good, a little more prep but worth the savings.

Ill post pics once I get these and mocked up.

I went Top Shop for many reasons, I researched bags for about a year before I bought and narrowed it down to Milwaukee or Top Shop, TS offered the best service, prices were close, and I guess I also like the fact the bags are lined inside. They fit better than OEM, BTW my painter loved them, he said he only spent about ten minutes per bag for prep which was the least he's ever spent on any brand, and now if someone ask him and they don't already have bags, he recommends Top Shop.

DS... Are you talking about the 5" Fairing Factory bags?

And DBell, I too have heard incredible things about the TS bags.

I'm not really worried about lids because I'm getting Hogtunes lids because I'm planning on running 6x9's in the bags.

Here are my Dirty Bird Top Shelf bags and fender. I was a little skeptical to order them cause of the horror stories I read about dirty bird but I loved the look and the beveled bags. Only thing I wish is that they would have come lined in the inside but I got some liners and did it myself and also made false bottoms for it. ImageUploadedByMO Free1412426209.010064.jpg

Those Dirty Birds look awesome. I like how they slope back. I think that's one of the better looking bags/fender set out there. I was just unsure of the workmanship of the company. I went with TS.

The Dirty Bird Top Shelf is still a super clean option. They are also the least expensive down and back set up I've seen. Win win

Top shop is free shipping

Almost every vender offers free shipping on something as expensive as bags/fender set up

I have Frankie's old DBC fender from over at CB sitting in my garage and it's 4" over so in looking for bags in the 4-4.5" realm.
I'd really like to keep my dual exhaust setup bc I love my CFR's however I'm really digging Colby's new fender/bag setup over at Speed by Design. Grrrrrr. Lol
