    I picked up a couple pieces of the Dowco Iron Rider luggage. I think it's pretty decent quality stuff and probably cheaper than some of the HD products. Here's a link if you want to check it out.

    I got a pretty large T-Bag brand sissy bar style off of Ebay about a year ago and I've been very happy with it.

    I know this is kinda old but, I use the H.D. side loading rolling tour bag on my Street Glide. Works great over the backrest on the passenger seat or luggage rack.

    Sissy bar luggage - Adapt, Improvise & Overcome!

    I've debated saddlebags and tombstone bags with myself ever since I brought the bike home. For the most part with the type of riding I do I don't really need the extra storage capacity of saddlebags, and I just don't care for the way they hide the chrome. I also tend to be just a little "tight with my wallet". Along with a leather trunk on the luggage rack what I found was the 'frame pocket' on my medium size "Alice Pack" fits nicely over the sissy bar, rides well on the passenger seat, and provides a nice backrest on my 3 or 4 day weekenders. It secures well with the lower straps and just one bungee around. Plenty of accessible pockets, and somewhat waterproof! I guess maybe I'm too cheap to buy bags for that occasional long weekend, but if I need more than rain gear, a spare t-shirt, jeans, and American Express I just don't have as much fun!
    To each his (or her) own, I guess that's why they call it freedom.
