Those grips are sexy if nothing else, avoid the Oxford 80's control box

Stripped the plastics and belly pan; dealer picked up the AT (free pick-up and return January service special) for it's 24,000km 3-yr service.
Decided I didn't want to do the valves myself and now the dealer can deal with the used oil, coolant and brake fluid.

Installed a set of Denali D4 lights, used a custom wiring harness from Rugged Roads that only used connectors behind the front plastics, used the datadim module, factory fog light switch and spade connectors for USB ports! The install is a long story and will post more about it in a separate thread.

Happy Camper!

They feel solid, very good quality, 1000D cordura, Hypalon and Kevlar. I like the look, they look "cleaner" to me than most other bags.
The downside is they definitely aren't something you can get into and out of quickly. So theres the Pannier racks, then the Kriega mounting plate (bolts to the pannier rack) and the OS bags are then attached to the mounting plate, and the straps that hold them onto the mounting plate loop around the whole bag, so you have to loosen those to unroll the top to get into them. They stay in put when you loosen those straps, so its not that big of a deal, but definitely a more lengthy process than other bags I've used in the Harley world.
I think I need a decent tank bag to hold my gloves and such for quick access. These are definitely more of a "load up your gear for all day riding and leave it till its time to stop and camp." From what I can tell thought that seems to be the theme with most soft bags?
The liner is kept in with velcro at the top and are bright white so its easy to see things stuffed down into the bottom.
The SW-Motech racks are quick detach as well so I can just take the racks/bags off and throw them into my tent or hotel room easily.
For people without quick detach racks its still pretty easy to remove the bags from the racks due to the hook system for the straps.
