    For the couple of dudes that own the new 09 Street Glides:

    1) Does the frame have mounting/bolt holes for saddlebag guards? I'm not that fond of them on my RK, but I AM fond of my water bottle/extra storage pocket thingy that I have that mounts to my saddlebag guard! I'm am wondering if I can add them to my SG if I get one?

    2) I have not seen aftermarket mirrors for the SG. How do you like your stock ones? Does anyone know if they are making aftermarket mirrors? I haven't seen any.

    THANKS KINDLY!

    Hey! I found your post. Yes! there are threaded holes in the frame under the seat for bag guards.
    I love the mirrors. They shake a bit more than those on a softail, but visibility is good as far as I am concerned.

    Thanx for the info on the saddle bag guards. was thinking of them myself.
    As for the mirrors I was a little leery at first but I am quite fond of them now.

    I love the mirrors too. I bought kurykyan chrome mirror caps for mine and they give them a very cool look.
