    Hello All,I got the HD detachable sideplates and docking hardware for the passenger backrest on a 2009 heritage softail classic.the kit leaves the saddle bags on the bike,and was wondering if anyone has put them on their bike and how hard it was to do?Thanks for any help.

    Docking mounts are easy to install and they work GREAT! Just installed them on my FLSTHC along with the Two up Detachable Rack & Tour Pac. Love it!!!

    Go to your local HD dealer and they will print out the installation instructions, ...especially if you want to establish a close relationship with your dealer...be careful though, the 2013 Parts and Accessories catalog is also "free" too...:s
