Tsukayu Strong and Jumbo strong bags 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
I'm looking at these really hard and Ronk Had pics of his orange bike with the Strong bags, wondering who has the Jumbo strong on their R* and pics to show them? I like that the Jumbo has a lot more room than the Strong almost a whole other bags worth of the Strong bags. I really wouldn't need a trunk with those bags I don't think. They would be 2" wider though than these strong bags so that would be a pretty wide ride...

Not my bike but here is one from Youtube. the guy says that they are the Jumbo. I really like the way these bags look. Seem to be good quality too from everything I've seen and read.
FYI: I researched these some in the past and remember people saying if you buy them to not buy the ones that have the pre drilled mounting holes or the bags will sit to high.

Excellent quality, a tad pricey but worth it compared to other bags. I dont have the Jumbos but mine are in the sig pic. A few things.

1. do not get the bike specific bags. All they are is predrilled for the mounts and they will sit way too high and you wont like were they have them, save some money and get the fit the way you want it.

2. I really like getting rid of the "lolly-pop" signal bar but their built in lights are kinda cheap and take up space in the bag. Dont get them. If you like the idea of not using the stock light bar get some lights to mount on the bags. Someone has turn signals that look a lot like the newer R* LED tail light. Wish I would have known where to get them thats what I would have done.

The bags on the YouTube bike have spacers of at least 1" off the fender. That plus the extra inches of width of the Jumbo bags makes them to big in proportion to the bike IMHO. They then look like those BMW's that cruise around with the big square boxes sticking out. Maybe some folks don't care how their bike looks and just want function, but I like looks too. Plus that the extra 1" out mean more wiggle and eventually more stress on the fender and mounting bolts and bag holes. You can probably get away without cutting the bottom of the bags, but that's your choice.

Jaybo.....here's what I bought......http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Mutazu-Vivid-Gloss-Black-Universal-RS-Hard-Saddlebag-fits-most-Cruisers-/231438034935?hash=item35e2c827f7:g:GWIAAOSwpDdVJwbR&vxp=mtr

If you can recall...I had them on my R* when I met you at the NW M&G at Shores' place in June....I mounted them directly on the OEM mounts after removing the crossbars that were in the way...I set them up and then drilled my own holes. As you can see in my avatar...they sit pretty high but.....I wanted them to match up the top profile of the rear fender....I could have mounted them lower as well.....It was easy...my $.02

Here's the Jumbos that I have on mine. I agree with Derailed about not getting the bike specific ones and drilling your own holes. I do like the lights after I stained the lenses red though.






Here's a shot of my big ass.....











Here's a load of 3 cans of coffee, 3 cans of creamer, a box of Splenda, and my half Helmet all in one load.

Well, at least you can stay awake when you go camping.

Edge, yeah I remember and that was why I had thought about them originally.. My worry about them is that they are not as heavy duty and while a lot less money I get tired of cheaping out and regretting it later. Since I am going to do custom paint, I think it better to spend a little more upfront.

Damn, that's a pretty big ass! Would a full face helmet fit in a bag?

As far as the lights I really liked what RonK did with his tombstone with signals, but now I am kind of thinking about standard Tombstone without signals and instead something external on the bags for signals ... like maybe this?

No doubt, lol!!


And Jaybo, I'm not sure if a full face would fit or not. I don't have one to try......
