Saddlemen Desperado Teardrop Saddlebags with Shock Cutaway
The exciting Teardrop style looks great and requires no signal relocation on most bikes, and is now available with the Shock Cutaway Design, for bikes equipped with twin external shocks. The cutaway allows the bags to be mounted closer to the center of the bike, narrowing the overall width over the bags. The teardrop design allows the stock turn signals placement to be utilized on most bikes, eliminating the hassle of relocation. Twin shock bikes usually require a saddlebag compromise- the bags either fit outside of the shocks (really wide!) or behind the shocks, interfering with turn signals. Here's a better solution! These bags fit comfortably around your bike's shocks, without making the bike unnecessarily wide. Also fits bikes with hidden shocks.
