I have seen threads about saddlebags for the Stateline, but nothing too recent.  I can't believe more people don't want to add them.  Anyway, I want a hard locking case for my Stateline, and I think my options are either using a Stock Honda Interstate set of saddlebags, or Willie and Max.  I called Willie and Max, and the number was invalid.  Does anyone know if they are out of business?

 

Also, does anyone else have any suggestions on where to get nice saddlebags for the Stateline that doesn't require any custom work or drilling?

 

See attachment... Ideally, I'd love to have those bags.

 

 

Thanks!

~Eric

I bought those bags in the spring! Photo below. Only complaint on them, is that they do rattle quite a bit! However I live in the land of pot holes, and if I'm wearing my headphones which is most of the time, no complaints. I also custom fitted some very thin carpeting inside of them before having them painted so that there would be some cushioning inside, and had also hoped it would dampen sound vibration. It ran me about $295 to get them custom painted.

Look at NeckBurn's reply.

I have these bags as part of the bags/fairing kit and love it all - just like Fastfocus'

I really like my lockable Viking bags, had my brother in law make some brackets for me to hard mount them. Too bad he works too much to make more, sorry. But they were rigid enough to protect the rear of my bike when I went down, just got another set of these yesterday: http://www.vikingbag...hQueryId=278434

$295 per each?  Or total?

I went to the site and "Devin" said they don't carry bags/brackets for the Stateline..

FastFocus: Put a little Velcro on the rims of the saddlebags (both left & right of lock) as well as on the lid. Stops the rattling.

Don't use too much or or makes it a b!tch to open them.

I just ordered the full touring kit from Dowco.  You just have to call now at 1-800-558-7755.  Click option 2.  Then extension 109.  Talk to Jim.  They only have about half a dozen bag kits and just 3-4 fairings left, but they are going for $400 for bags, $300 for fairing, and that includes all brackets, shipping, and they knocked some off for taxes for me!  Will need to be painted, but that's still a deal!


May my opinion be changed by evidence.

May my heart be changed by the Lord.

I see this has been quiet for the past few years. I am just buying a 2010 Stateline and am interested to put hard bags on it. 

 

Not much choice on FortNine.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

Jock

I am possibly going to have a set of OEM Interstate bags for sale soon. I purchased a set of Harley bags ... yes I know sacrilege. But, couldn't beat the deal. New, painted, with hardware, 125. I was getting ready to make a foam mold from the stock and use fiberglass to build and extend them but the cost for doing that and getting these just made more sense.
