    I just got an FXDC and love it to death. I am a rookie and have a qustion about good saddle bags (durable), mounting hardware needed, and if I have to move my turn signals or not? These questions may sound stupid but I am a beginner

    There's a bunch of options when it comes to bags from hard bags from the MOCO to throw over bags to permanent mounts so the question of the turn signals depends on your choice of bags. I would say most likely they would need to be repositioned with a kit.

    If you go with hard bags you will have to move your turn signals. If you get the hard bag kit from HD through M&M Cycle it has the relocation kit with it and the bags are very nice http://www.mandmcycles.com/homepage.htm

    I got a set of HD bags off of Ebay for $135 shipped. All they had was a slight scuff on the one bag.
    I use the easy brackets and like the quick on/off of the brackets.

    I ended up getting a lay back lic plate bracket from motosport.com for the turn signal relocation.
    The bracket allowed the use of the stock turn signal stems and it looks like it'e one piece.

    I'll post a pic as soon as I get 5 posts.

    Here is a pic with the bags on showing the easy brackets.
    The thing I like most about them is you don't need a brace under them.

    As you can see here with the bags off all you see is the studs that the brackets mount to. no ugly brace left behind.

    cuznjed: if you will look earlier in the forum, I asked about the same questions concerning saddle bags. I eventually decided to purchase some bags from Fox Creek Leathers - they have a series of bags designed for the Dyna series of HD. I really like their quality...just a suggestion. If you are anything like myself, you bought the Bob because of the way it looked and adding a set of permanent bags just didn't do a thing for me, so I went with throw overs. Enjoy your bike!!! And...have a wonderful and safe 2008!
