    I just bought a set of used HD PN91615-09 rigid leather saddlebags and would like to mount them with a quick disconnect bracket on my '08 FXDL. Looking today I've seen Ghost brackets, Easy brackets, and CycleVision Bare Backs. Does anyone have any recommendations? The Bare Backs are similar to the QD's I looked at on a new SG. Any help is appreciated...

    I bought the HD removable side plates and a short backrest. Drilled 2 holes in each side plate. Bolted my saddlebags onto the side plates. Now my bags come off with the side plates and backrest.
    I prefer to ride solo seat and no bags or backrest. When I ride 2-up the backrest, bags and duo seat go on. It's like 2 different bikes.. In about 2 minutes.
