Anyway, I went with RIVER ROAD STUDDED XL SLANTS, but I will not know if they will fit until the get here. They are very big bags.
I really like the looks of these bags on the M50.You should love the bags Roger, I managed to put them on my 03 800 Marauder. I had to add quite a few lacing holes in the over-fender straps to get clearance over pipes and moved the turn signals from fender stalks to luggage rack. The photo is prior to moving the lite stalks. Also added adhesive metallic tape to the bottom of the bag over the pipes for a heat deflector. Tons of room in the rascals, my son put a pair of chest waders in one side of his bags. (same bags)
Good Job ! Great choice on the 'Easy Brackets' for the fit apparently and a 'Thinking mans' MOD on the added velcro. Enjoy and ride safe.I do not have the bags mounted yet, but I am using Easy Brackets, and they actually kick the bags out far enough to clear the rear turn signals. I can put them back to the limit of front edge of the Easy Bracket and not have to alter the turn signals.
One thing that I was concerned about was the lid not setting down tight, especially on the front flap. There was only one piece of velcro in the center of the main side section, and none on either end. I took the bags to a shoe repair shop and had them sow velcro all around the three sides. They are a bit harder to open but they do seal closed pretty well.
Hay SKTR,Good Job ! Great choice on the 'Easy Brackets' for the fit apparently and a 'Thinking mans' MOD on the added velcro. Enjoy and ride safe.
