Hi. Here are some pics of my new bike with the saddle bags mounted. I picked them up today from the dealer. The dealer was nice enough to agree to give me 10% off since I just ordered the bike through them. There are pics of the bike sans bags in my initial introduction post. The bags take a matter of seconds to mount once the lock cylinders are keyed and installed, but Honda does make you suffer a bit before this. You have to order blank lock cylinders and a set of key tumblers along with the bags, and then follow 10 pages of instructions to match the locks to your ignition key. The first one took over an hour to do, but the second one was done in a matter of minutes. There are tiny springs and tumblers to fiddle with, but still doable. The bags will be great for long weekend trips. They have top handles that make them like small luggage. The plan is to ride with them to our destination city, and pop them off to leave in the hotel room while riding the twisties in towns like Austin, TX. The last pic shows the one small rubber cushion that needs to be installed on the bike. Other than that, the bike itself requires no additional hardware. If you are wondering, the reason the right mirror is pulled in is so that I can sneak the bike in the garage behind the jeep.
