My CVO came with stretched bags. They have metal skid plates on the bottom. I scrape my floorboards frequently but it's not very easy to scrape your bags. I can't speak to after market products but scraping the HD stretched bags aren't an issue. The only time I think about them is when I'm backing into a parking space and don't want them to set on the curb.

good info, thanks!
do you happen to know the stretch of the bags and the brand?
They're the bags that came standard on the 2013 CVO Road Glide Custom. They're made by Harley Davidson. I'm sure you can call the dealer for specs. Here's what they look like.

So ill answer from my own experience..

1) believe it or not, ebay bought 4 sets off ebay, min prep and nice bags.
2) you can get 5" or 6" with a beveled cut and you wont scrap them probably lol
3) Unless you want the .5 or 1 gallon extra (not really worth it) go with bad dad covers and you can cut them to fit your seat. Pain in the butt to get a seat for stretch tank.
4)demons tank (yaffee knock off) and cheaper

For tank ideas,

Here is an 07 with a 7gal FatKatz tank, spendy but you get what you pay for, comes with a proprietary fuel pump Assy,



Another tank I like is the RWI 6.5 gal, 100% American made, takes your pump assembly, very little prep needed and comes with a nice dash,



With TopShop Viper bags,
