i personally like hard bags more looks wise but youll fit more in a soft/leather saddlebag, maybe make up a little rack off the back you could pile shit on, your struts are so short theres gonn abe hard to support anything from flapping in the wind and banging into the tire

I hate to say it but I think you are kind of screwed as far as getting bags on it as is. Maybe some throw over bags of some sort and hold them on with the shock bolt. I've got some Ogio textile bags that don't look too bad. I could see them working on a strutless bike.

hey man i was running iron head bags, they mount off a flat bracket. all you'd have to do it weld a strap extension to where you cut off the struts and your in. id take a normal shot but i changed the bike up completely now but you get the idea.
