1200N Saddlebags without tail light relocation?????

Does anyone know the best saddlebags for the Nightster? I've been reading that you need to move the tail lights to the fender. I want to keep them where they are. Does anyone know where I can buy a cheap bag and not move the lights? Help me please.

I am not familiar with the nightster specifically, but with my custom, I have a set of Willie and Max leather throwover bags that I put under my seat on the fender. The turn signals are in the original stock position and actually help keep the bags from sliding back on the bike.

Hope the actual Nightster user will post soon.

No change to the bags or the straps. No change to the plate mount or the lights, just mounted them further forward then usual.
I went with the River Road compact classics. Ordered them from Motorcycle Superstore for around $68 bucks.

I posted pictures of it under a post by Dudz; Nightster Saddlebags without any mods?

I'd attach the pictures here, but I am having some attachment issues
