    Welcome MyStreetGlide to the HDTalking forum. While others will be here shortly to help you, please clarify your need for "extended" bags...do you mean length, width or height and is the need for more capacity and do you already have a Tour Box fitted? Is there are brand, style or design that works bes for you? Thanks!

    MyStreetGlide; I'm in the same situation - possibly going w/extended bags to give my FLHX cleaner look in the back. Step-1 was to find the right exhaust set-up (which I now have) so I'll continue researching & saving $$$ b/c they're not cheap. Definitely going w/ABS & currently looking at Sumax, Klock Werks or Milwaukee Bagger. Good luck w/your search & keep us posted if you get a set.

    Thanks smitty...saw those earlier on your former RG & did like the look. Also, the guy I bought my lowers from here in Omaha had them on his FLHX & I'm not ruling them out - look good too!

    Careful about too low or too wide, they may "DRAG" on tight turns.

    Yes they may and you can actually get plates that go on the bottom of your extended bags to take any scraping instead of the bags. I too want to run extended bags and a fender cover etc when I do my next custom work (next winter now have to pay for daughters wedding this year hahaha :) :newsmile026:)
