I'm seeking suggestions on Saddlebags for my 2005 sportster. I don't want to relocate my turn signals. I think that destroy's the look of the bike. I also don't want hard bags, or studs of any kind. I'm thinking something economical in a throwover. I'm looking at Fox Creek sportster saddlebags, currently. Regarding size, I'm looking for a bag that I can use for milk runs, literally. I can't tell you the number of times, I've been asked to get milk. Seems like a good excuse to me to take the bike. I don't take long trips, and will mostly ride around with out the bags, except for the occasional milk run...

Thanks for your two cents in advance.

Get yourself a back rest and look into T-Bags.

You'll get a better deal on eBay. The one on the back seat doubles As a backrest and back pack. Used it on my trip to the Dragon.

Ride safe
