    too good to be true...

    The mother company Custom Gear Cycle seems to be an EBay seller...
    but 115USD for a pair of hard bags it's really a too low price....

    Blackmagic is right, I've been watching these things on E-bay for a while...seems pretty inexpensive for something that looks like they do. I can't bring myself to get them because I have to think that I'm missing something, the quality just can't be there for that price...

    Thanks for the info. Kind of defeats the purpose if you can't put a 12 pack of beer in there on the way home.

    i have some sport/standard saddlebags from nelson rigg that I throw in if i have to carry more stuff than I can carry in a backpack. i have to tighten it up really high so that it doesn't hit the tires though. looks awkward but it works.

    My problems with Mutazu

    I have the MU Hard saddlebags on my Star Roadliner...and yes, they are too good to be true...the blinkers never worked, the running lights are crap, they keep going out (a few leds at first, then the whole light, and the universal brackets are so weak they seemed like wings on a bird as the saddle bags flapped down the road), not only that, the mounts took chunks out of my swingarm, so I had to buy a second set just to weld together for stability...the company told me they have no product liability to cover the damage to my bike...so I'm sueing...Did I mention the cases cracked as well and they made me pay for shipping to return them...I can say they look good if they weren't messed up...view the pics I added

    If you're looking for some good hard saddlebags, I've got the Tsukayu Coner model and they work pretty well. The workmanship is good but not great--the locks have never worked properly (they hold the bags closed but won't lock) and I ended up having to re-solder the blinker resistors (I got the optional LED blinkers) because the wires broke off easily. After the blinker fix though they've been solid and I'm ultimately happy I spent the money on them. They're roomy and waterproof which is what I wanted in the first place.

    I can answer this one, I ordered them and sent them back because they're flimsy and cheap looking, and the mounting brackets stink. Got the National Cycle Hard bags instead, more expensive but they're very good.

    MrLease, which model did you get? the GA's? They see like a good size for the bike.

    And I understand the frustration with the abrasion the mounts caused on the Roadliner, that's frustrating for sure. But when I saw the 'mounts' were just bent 1" mild plate steel you can buy at Home Depot for $5 per 6' I knew that wasn't a good enough solution. I will likely buy the actual bag support, and use 'U' bolts and rubber grommets for the mounts.

    "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over lousy fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average of the world’s great civilizations before they decline has been 200 years. These nations have progressed in this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to Complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependency back again to bondage." -Alexander Fraser Tyler, Cycle Of Democracy (1770)

    I got the GA's and went to Home Depot and bought aluminum strips and stainless steel bolts and nuts and made my own bracket.
    I have saddlebag supports but didn't think of the U bolt idea. That would have been a lot easier.

    I think they look nice, not gigantic but who wants gigantic on an M.

    I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering if you still liked the GA bags after all this time. I'm considering a set of Mutazu's LW bags, a bit larger, but I'd like to hear your long-term review on the quality. Thanks!
